I would like to go to Buenos Aires for Wikimania 2009. I am trying to
put together a presentation revolving around the Original reporting of
Wikinews. I am finding it difficult to gather the statistics needed for
some of the slides I am preparing. I am using openoffice so its quite
easy for me to make a good deal of the slides.
I would like someone to help me in determining how many OR articles are
on WN. I have so far only determined we had none in 2004, which was
expected. I need the current number of articles from 2005 until the
present year. The numbers from later months can be updated to 2009 as
I would like someone or some people to research the most popular OR
articles. I want to shoot for the most popular top 10 articles of all
time. Next, break down a quick synopsis of each of those top 10. If 10
is too much, then maybe 5 will do.
I also want to gather which of our top OR articles made it into
mainstream media like CNN, BBC, etc etc. All this info will be put into
pretty graphs and pie charts.
If anyone else has any ideas let me know.
