Liebe österreichischen Wikimedianerinnen und Wikimedianer,
ich habe heute Casey Browns e-mail bezüglich der Zulassung als
offizielles Wikimedia Chapter gelesen, wozu ich allen an diesem Erfolg
Beteiligten herzlich gratuliere und mich dafür bedanke!
Nun ist es so, dass ich zwar in letzter Zeit (seit Ende November/Anfang
Dezember) weiterhin die Mailingliste abonniert hatte, aber die
Nachrichten nie gelesen habe, weil ich Ende Jänner eine wichtige Prüfung
im Studium hatte und lernen musste. Ich bin also (euphemistisch gesagt)
nicht ganz auf dem Laufenden. Wenn ich
interpretiere, hat die Gründungsversammlung des Vereins am 21. Dezember
stattgefunden - http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Österreich
beschreibt dazu allerdings gar nichts, die letzte Änderung an der Seite
war am 30. Dezember.
Ich bitte euch deshalb um eine ganze kurze Zusammenfassung über den
aktuellen Status des Projekts Wikimedia Österreich, insbesondere wo/wie
der Verein steht.
as the fundraiser was quite successful especially robin suggested to
follow up on wysiwyg (what you see is what you get) or wysiwym (what
you see is what you mean) editing for mediawikki more thoroughly, and
robin even volunteered to steer that effort more thouroghly, nando
offered his help in organizing some money if it should be necessary -
and from last years wikipedia day we know he is quite gifted for that
we started a wiki page on the current state of the art at
http://wikimedia.ch/MediawikiWysiwyg, and also to collect some ideas.
one thing i could think of is a price of 10'000 up to 150'000 chf (up
to 100'000 eur) that could be paid to that one delivering some result.
we would be glad about any feedback, ideas, on the matter itself, on
whom we should contact, on who already did something in the area.
* wysiwyg information: http://wikimedia.ch/MediawikiWysiwyg
* fundraising summary: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fundraising_2007/Report
fyi. one topic in this call is "digital libraries". projects need to
be submitted by april.
i'd be glad if you could drop me an email if you think in participating.

Subject: Call 3 announcement
First of all we would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas Christmas
and the very best for 2008!
The 3rd ICT Call, objective 'Intelligent Content and Semantics' was
published on 4 December 2007 with a closing date of 8 April 2008. The
budget will be the same as for the first ICT Call (50 M euro). We
invite you to take a look at our information online
http://cordis.europa.eu/ist/kct/fp7_call_3.htm which gives you further
details on the scope of the call, individual research lines and
planned budget allocation, including excerpts from the Work Programme,
You will also find background information specific to this Call, a
presentation made by Mr Roberto Cencioni during the recent Information
Days, an overview of the results of Call 1 and brief project synopses
of those proposals which were successful under the first Call.
As mentioned above, Information Days were held in Luxembourg on the
12th and 13th of December. The aim of the event was to give potential
proposers information about Call 3. Over 300 people registered to
listen to key speakers present some of the successful results of
projects financed under FP6. Speakers from industry gave their views
on what it takes to have research results transformed into good
commercial products. There was also a first peek at some of the
projects which were chosen to receive financial support under the
first Call. And last but not least, a very popular Skills Marketplace
session took place where participants in the Information Days had the
chance to present themselves, their organisations and their skills.
We have put the presentations made by the individual speakers online
with the slides from the participants in the Skills Marketplace, and a
list of participants in the meeting.
If you intend to submit a proposal under the 3rd Call and would like
some initial feedback from Commission Staff, we are offering an
enquiry service where you can submit a brief outline of your proposal
and receive an answer from one of our Project Officers within a few
working days. More information on what the outline should contain and
how it should be presented can be found on
We are also launching a public consultation with regard to future
research directions and priorities beyond 2008. We invite you to
contribute to the discussion and thus ultimately contribute to the
shaping of the Work Programme 2009-2010. The Work Programme will
drive ICT calls and operations in 2009-2010, with a total budget in
excess of 2 billion euro. You can make your contribution here
