So quite some time has passed since Wikipedia’s 10th anniversary, and now
that things are starting to wind down, it’s time to consider what we want to

As part of Wikimania 2011 in Haifa, we are looking for videos from the
Wikipedia 10th anniversary celebration events around the world. I will be
happy if anyone that have such video could contact me to see how we can get
it from you - itzik(a)wikimedia.org.il
