I have access to 2 video-capable cameras that I can bring, but
1. One of them will need a high capacity memory card, preferably at least
32 GB, and UHS-I or UHS-II.
2. Both of them will need tripods. I have a tripod but packing it into my
luggage would be a problem.
Is there anyone who could loan the memory card and/or tripods?
I believe that there will be some official video at the conference, but I'm
not sure if that will extend to every session, so I'm planning to bring
these two. I've contacted James but because time is running short I'm
posting here also.
Hi California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia (and possibly
elsewhere in the US for those interested):
Please indicate your preferences regarding the scheduling of a one day (or
partial day) celebration and mini-conference for Wikipedia's 15th birthday
in January 2016. The current plan is to have the event in multiple physical
locations via Google Hangouts.
Possible meetup locations (still to be determined) for concurrent online
* WMF office in San Francisco, CA
* Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, OR
* University of Washington, Seattle, WA
* Other sites in the United States and Canada TBD. Possible locations
include Colorado, Idaho, and British Columbia.
* New York and Washington DC may have their own event(s) which they
partially sync with us
Please participate here: http://doodle.com/poll/4zhyiksqebx7uxqr. The times
shown are PST by default.
Cascadia Wikimedians is currently registered as a nonprofit in Washington
State. Our next step for fundraising purposes will be to register as a
"charity" in Washington State. We have started this process with a request
for relevant records from the state Attorney General's Office. After we
receive a reply from the AGO, we can complete the remaining steps to become
a charity under state law. Charity status will allow us to conduct
fundraising activities among the general public in Washington State.
Further down the road is our 501(c)(3) application. We have requested grant
funds for the IRS filing fee and for the professional services of an
attorney or CPA to assist us with this process. Hopefully we will complete
this process in 2016.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Full speed ahead,
