Good evening Wikimaniacs!
We now have a distributed effort by multiple volunteers in Hong Kong to
upload all the video footage from Wikimania 2013 onto YouTube. If you gave
a presentation or workshop at Wikimania (and haven't requested that we
don't video you), keep an eye on WMHK's YouTube channel:
The plan is that all videos will be available by the end of February.
We'd be grateful if you can watch your video and see if there are any
defects, because we can't watch every second of the uploaded videos to
On the recommendation of the Wikimania 2015 selection Jury Committee, we have accepted the proposal from Mexico DF to host. The proposal will be further vetted by the WMF staff in the coming month, after which time we hope to confirm the award. Please join us in congratulating Wikimedia Mexico!
We would also like to thank the teams from Cape Town and Monastir as well for all their effort in putting together excellent proposals for our consideration. As a volunteer-led movement, it is hugely encouraging to have so many who want to support Wikimania. The bidding process requires a substantial time investment, and we are most grateful for every team’s hard work.
For those of you who are considering hosting in future years, we expect to issue the Request for Proposals for 2016 by September this year.

Actually I think video documentation always should be opt-out. In past years speakers had to give their explicit approval by signing a form, at least after their talk, so the material could be used and published. This includes the agreement to the CC-BY license etc.

To Steffen's point, perhaps video documentation can be made opt-out?

Yes! :) I can try and find out. Most probably not before Monday.

on the wiki, there seem to be several (all?) submissions without submission
number. Is there a way to check if a submission is being considered and/or
what the status is? Right now I'm uncertain if mine was included in the
process at all for example.
I'm drafting a couple of submissions for sessions at Wikimania, and
(having successfully made submissions for Wikimania 2012, for
Wikimedia UK AGMs, and for other conferences) have come to the
conclusion that 300 words is too much text to require.
What is the thinking behind this figure?
Would there be any possibility ro have simultaneous translation at the glam
podium discussion? The person whom we asked from the swiss national library
refused to take part as his English would not be up to a level allowing him
to sufficiently contribute. This would be German - English.
