May I pass a Wikimania panel idea past you? I'd be interested in organizing a panel of
people to discuss the movement from Wikipedia to print and print into Wikipedia, from the
Bertelsman Wikipedia and WikiPress to the import of previously published material into
Wikipedia, and so forth, with attention to the differences, limitations, procedures,
licensing options, etc. Do you think this general idea would be of interest to enough
people to warrant a place on the program?

Subject: [Wikimania-l] program committee volunteers needed

Date: Thursday, January 15, 2009, 11:00 PM
Want to help make Wikimania 2009 extraordinary? Dreaming of tango
lessons beneath the southern sky? Are you knowledgeable about the
Wikimedia community, intrigued by the latest wiki research, passionate
about teaching the projects to others and going further with free
culture? Do you have some spare time between now and early summer? Are
you detail-oriented, with a flair for organization and a commitment to
providing fair and honest feedback? Do you speak Español or English
(or better yet, both) fluently? Do you really *love* IRC meetings?
If these things are true for you, the 2009 Wikimania program committee
wants you! We are looking for a few good volunteers to help with such
* recruiting excellent speakers and brainstorming conference topics
* reviewing paper and workshop submissions
* producing a schedule of sessions, once selected
The program committee is a fair amount of work but also a lot of fun.
This is a great way for both local and remote volunteers to help out.
Program committee members will be expected to keep up with program
committee mail and/or attend online meetings, review a selection of
submitted papers and meet reviewing deadlines. Offers to help out in
other ways are also welcome.
