The final version of the Wikimania Documentary can be found on YouTube.
Will push to Commons by end of this week as it requires a bit of alteration
to make it fully Wikimedia Commons License compliant.

Interviews taken at the conference will be released to public soon.
Currently awaiting the video's public-going approval from the interviewees.
Subtitles will be added soon to the documentary video on YouTube. Editing
the videos wasn't as difficult to me as adding the subtitles. Dang!
Thanks for all your support and assistance.
Will love to also hear from and get in touch with our friends in

I'm interested in meeting persons who are willing to share their story of
their world of Wikimedia. We plan making a video documentary out of it to
share with other Africans and raise their interest in the world of wiki.
I've talked to a couple of persons already but looking for more.
>From wikidata to Wikiversity, I'm willing to talk to all. It shouldn't take
more than 10 minutes of your time.
Please lemme know your coordinates if interested and I'll teleport myself

Yes, i will post to this list once it is done.
Some numbers for the sake of ETA:
the total size is 1.5 TB. It takes about 6 hours per GB, so 1500 *6 =
9000 hours. 9000 hours are 375 days...
I'm going to throw more horse power at the workers and parallel the
work, so i estimate it will take about 1/12 of this time, or a month
Will keep you posted !
Are all the WM2014 videos up?
If so, is the reason some appear to be missing possibly the existence of
those several-hour videos with names such as "0bbca578 b967 4a27 9de2
3bafb500cc50" and "4ca853b7 cafa 436d 8031 70499c143cd1"?
Who has access to the account and can rename them to reflect the name of
the programme session they are recordings of?

Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the
sum of all knowledge. Help us make it a reality!
This was posted on wikimedia-l, but I figured it should also go to this list.

Subject: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimania 2014 Evaluation Survey Results
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
*tl;dr: *You can find the results of the Wikimania 2014 Evaluation Survey
on Wikimedia Commons **
Today we posted a slide deck summarizing data from the Wikimania evaluation
survey from this year’s event in London. The survey was a collaborative
effort of the Wikimania Conference and Hackathon organizers and the WMF
Learning and Evaluation team. Conferences and hackathons had been
identified as key programs to develop evaluation insight. Given the
opportunity to collaborate on an evaluation survey, WMF team members
partnered with conference and hackathon organizers to provide the technical
support to complete the survey project.
This first survey offers a look into the processes and outcomes of the
conference. It is intended as a means for participants to share what they
got out of the conference and a platform to collect information on how we
can improve future conferences and their evaluation. We have released a
basic data summary and meta page with brief highlights of the survey and
link to a pdf slide deck published to Commons **.
== Methodology ==
* Online survey via Qualtrics **
* Data collection:
** August 10th – September 15th, 2014
** Conference participants: 1520
** Survey Respondents: n=792 (52% of conference participants)
=== The Conference Overall ===
* Participants were highly satisfied with the conference overall.
* 91% of respondents rated the conference as "Good" (48%) or "Excellent"
* 87% indicated their expectations had been "met" (48%) or "exceeded" (39%)
* The most named benefits of attending Wikimania were meeting people and
finding out about projects.

Please visit the page ** for basic details or follow the links to the
slide deck **. The complete survey data are available upon request and
will be used by both the conference and the hackathon planning groups for
their use in planning for future events and their evaluation. In addition,
the Learning and Evaluation team will also work to review and incorporate
these results, along with evaluation data from other conferences, in the
second round of Program Evaluation reports currently in progress. The
conference financial report is also underway, however, it will also be
available sometime in the new year. Keep an eye out for these additional
points of reporting to become available in early 2015!
On behalf of all who have collaborated in this evaluation survey, those
who helped with its development, the 792 participants who completed it, and
those involved in the its analysis, and now, interpretation: thank you for
your time, attention, and support! We are happy to be part in this
collective learning about Wikimedia conferences and hackathons. Your
questions are welcome, and encouraged, on the talk page.
