Thanks for pointing this out, Sj. I talked about a Wikimentary and the
logistics thereof at Wikimania with Rory O'Connor (Globalvision) - but
I'm just wondering, where has the talk taken place since then?
Privately? Or on-wiki/list (commons-l)..?
Aha! Was it you who put the bug in his ear? Once Wikimentary gets
added to the OED, etymologists will want to know.
Sadly, I can't claim this one, but I think it was just fresh in his
mind when we had our discussion :-)
Talk has largely
been by email and phone with Rory, as part of an older discussion of
how progress with their own short documentary is coming. I've
transcribed the relevant parts of all private conversations to that
meta-page, so you can see there hasn't been all that much talk yet.
I'm trying to get Rory to edit wikis directly, but it's difficult. --Sj
Ok, thanks. I think it is up to us to really show what a wiki can do
in this respect - and then we'll have Rory hooked, line and sinker ;-)
