I know a lot of you were keen to hear more about Bianca's work as First
Nations Wikipedian in Residence for Wikimedia Australia.
She was improving information about First Nations music and musicians,
using the resources available at State Library of Queensland.
She has completed her initial residency there, and we have now extended it
as a remote residency so she can build on the skills she's learnt over the
past couple of months.
Please read her blog post about her experience here:
Unfortunately, most of the images used in the article can't be added to
Commons so we won't be reposting this one to Diff.

Hi - I have just rehistered for this year's event and as Chair of the
Wikipedia working group at the State Library NSW would be interested in
partnering up with someone at the National Library to discuss wiki
projects. Best Geoff.
So the Wikimania programme has now been published.
I summarized the key information about it on the submission page.
So we do have 30 mn.
Here is my suggestion. Given the time ---> no presentation... only
discussion open with the audience.
We open the session with a 2 mn intro. We can present one another in one
minute (local and distance if they are - Z or John or others. But keep
in mind the timezone is favorable to early wakers Europeans and late
sleepers North Americans)
Then open questions from the room and answers.
We will close with suggestions to connect (mailing list, meta page,
other relevant sessions such as the UN one which comes after). You guys
make sure to have your contacts ready.
Let's prepare a bunch of questions in advance. If the room is hot, we
can rely on their questions. If the room is cold... then I'll make sure
some of the best questions are asked :)
*TODO (anyone, please feel free to help)*
1. Add a collection of interesting links to the proposition (if you
have ideas, please do complete the section about Links... ongoing
current project, a diff article, a newsletter link, last year video
about WREN etc.)
2. Review and complete your small profile description (make sure people
do connect you to your institution and find out how to contact you. Also
if you give another related presentation, please do mention it)
I'll do mine later today as an example if you hate white pages.
3. On the etherpad, please do suggest questions to ask the panel :
PS : James, I answer you separately
