As the movie got a relatively negative reaction at Wikimania, I'm not sure
it's the best one to show...

I tried to get in touch with the film productions of 'truth in numbers'
(kriz bell)- but they did not answered my emails. I wonder if we could get
the movie for presentations, events etc. - we even think about a translation
of the movie cause we would love to show it i.e. our donors. Planning a
'charity event' is on our list for 2011.
@Jay or Sue what do you think about the chance to get movie or even raw

Betreff: Re: [WikiX-l] Wikipedia 10th or Wikipedia 11th anniversary?
Of course the celebrations can (and should) continue over the next year -
specially till next Wikimania..
But i'm still imagine it, Jan 15, website that show activities around the
world, events, meetups, projects.. Global projects and local projects..
To have board member for a meet-up is nice, but not too special or can
bring "new people"...
We tried to speak with universities to have some "Wikipedia day" on the
university, but the problem it's winter break for most of the students, so
most of them busy with tests and don't visiting the campuses daily...
I started to play with crazy idea, that i have since our 100K article
celeberation.. to host huge party on one of the big nightclub here, to a
free Wikipedia party for editors and students.. but I'm still trying to
build the idea and the budget, and then look if anyone can sponsor it..

Hey Itzik (and everyone),
I have a notion. There's no reason we can't have months, or a full
year, of celebrations. But I also think it'd be great to have
celebrations around the world on January 15, and I was thinking it
might be interesting to have a couple of board members + staff
to go out and be present at some of those. For example, I think
is thinking about spending January 15 in Bangalore, with the chapter
So I'm curious to know: who is planning celebrations in their
and might want to have a board member or staff member come and
celebrate with them? Or, who might be willing to organize something?
I say this in part because there will likely be a January 15
celebration in San Francisco. But there's no reason it should be the
primary event. So if others are planning celebrations, or are
to plan them, the Wikimedia Foundation would be willing to help --
providing guest speakers, swag/outreach materials, or whatever else
would be useful.
