Como sabem, o 10º aniversário da Wikipédia está se aproximando (mais exactamente, será no dia 15 de Janeiro de 2011 - dia de fundação da primeira wiki, a em inglês).
Obviamente, a fundação está a organizar as comemorações, e, como é suposto, quer a nossa participação. A organização da "festa" dá-se na mailling list https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikix-l e o Jay Walsh (Head of Communications da WMF) chama todos os chapters a participarem.
Por outro lado, deviamos também pensar no 10º aniversário da Wikipédia em Português (que como podem ver aqui em baixo vai ser em Maio) e começar desde já os preparativos para a comemoração (quem sabe envolver a WM BR nisso?)
: Por curiosidade, a de.wiki - 2º a ser criada - "nasceu" em 16 de Março, e a pt.wiki (junto com as wikipédias em espanhol, catalão, esperanto, francês, hebraico, japonês, chinês, italiano e russo) nasceu em 11 de Maio de 2001

> Reply-To: Communications Committee <firstname.lastname@example.org> Hi folks, Some of you are probably aware that a wikix-l list was created a few months ago to stimulate discussion and centralize planning for 10th anniversary celebrations. Our birthday is coming up way too soon - January 15, 2011. I expect we'll end up discussing this on every single list, but I'm hoping to share all of our plans and focus the discussion on the wikix-l list. Optimally we will have at least one rep from each chapter on the Wikix-l list. We'll also be looking for broad representation from the myriad WP's. Sign up for the list here: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikix-l Thanks - more as it comes together...

Of course nothing will be possible without lots of broad support from our thousands of global volunteers and our chapters, as well as other partners (new and old!) and sponsors to help kick things off in style, for Wikipedia's 10th year. > > Right now there are a couple of major considerations here at the Foundation, and I thought I'd start by sharing those major sections. Some areas need a lot more input from the community than others, but in all cases we want to share everything that's being planned (our ideas, your ideas, strategies, practices etc) so we can openly collaborate and try innovative ideas. > > I see these as the three major areas of planning for Wiki 10 - leading up to, and during the year starting Jan 15: > > 1. Global celebrations > (chapters and volunteer groups around the world hosting events, parties, and local festivities) > > 2. A 'free' birthday celebration in San Francisco > (A Foundation-driven party on January 15, probably open to the public and acting as a central focus for festivities here in the Bay area) > > 3. On-wiki festivities and celebrations > (Any number of great ideas to mark the 10th anniversary, on en:wp or other wikis - which may include tie-ins with the upcoming annual fundraiser) > > We'll have more to say about each of these areas early next week, and hopefully we'll add more areas or fill those sections out soon. I'd like to use this list as a central planning space, but I'm sure there will also be on-wiki discussions taking place. > > The Foundation also has a small budget to provide reasonable grants to chapters or other volunteer groups around the world to support celebrations. The conditions for receiving those grants won't be too complicated, and we hope to get that process underway soon. > > Although the Foundation is largely focussed on hosting a party and helping to support activities, we want to help coordinate a central on-wiki space where all activities from chapters, project reps etc can be shared so we can create a global 'at a glance' page with all planned activities. > > We also plan to post our plans for a local party in the next week or two, so you can see how we're pulling the pieces together, what partners we're talking to, and generally share our information so you have a party template to use (if you're looking for one :) > > I'm glad to see some other discussions underway on the list already - hopefully we can start adding more. Please share more of your ideas and we'll get started with the planning. > > Thanks! > jay > > > > > -- > Jay Walsh > Head of Communications > WikimediaFoundation.org > blog.wikimedia.org > +1 (415) 839 6885 x 609, @jansonw > > > _______________________________________________ > WikiX-l mailing list > WikiXfirstname.lastname@example.org > https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikix-l -- Jay Walsh Head of Communications WikimediaFoundation.org blog.wikimedia.org +1 (415) 839 6885 x 609, @jansonw _______________________________________________ Wmfcc-l mailing list Wmfccemail@example.com https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wmfcc-l
