Based on the input you have given through the brainstorming page I have
put the first draft of the schedule of this year's Chapters Meeting online
Note that this is not the final schedule. I would like to incorporate your
feedback on the draft and to assign specific content to the broader or
vaguer topics – if you have any suggestions on this, please get in touch
As you will notice, there are about three major topic areas that come up in
a number of sessions. The main themes build on the discussions we had in the
previous years on chapter projects (outreach and otherwise) and development.
New this year is the emphasis given to the discussion about various aspects
of movement roles that will hopefully clarify and improve on the
relationships among actors in the movement and inform the development of a
movement charter due by this year's Wikimania.
Time will be set aside also for discussion in smaller groups about some
specific issue that you would like to tackle. Some suggestions so far have
been: creating a framework to handle justified legal complaints; to continue
the discussion about the developing world and concrete steps Wikimedia can
do to spread its mission, or to continue the toolserver governance
I would very much appreciate your input either here or in private about your
thoughts on the schedule, possible working groups, or the content of
Wikimedia Conference 2011
I just read the Signpost for the first time in about 2 years. You can
get your printable copy from
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book:Wikipedia_Signpost/2011-03-28 - I
strongly recommend it to all WMZA members, and not only because it
mentions the Berlin conference!
Catrin from Wikimedia DE posted the following message on the Meta talk page and
would appreciate any feedback:
Hi there, I am Catrin (press spokesman from Wikimedia Germany) and I am looking
for pictures from your birthday parties. Any idea, any links or pictures you
could send to me? Since we need it for our newspaper
http://www.wikimedia.de/wiki/Vereinszeitung it is urgent - hope you can help!
