Hey all,

Kaltura - who are kind benefactors of Wikimania this year, wanted to
pass on the following invite to those who are participating in Wikimania
- or those who may not be able to.

They've got two lonely videos on there right now.  Consider uploading
your travel videos for some open-source collaboration/editing.  Add as
many other videos as you can come across while you're in Alexandria.  If
you can't make it, why not edit a video or add some reflections or views
of your own?

(PS, freshly blogged at

Jay Walsh, Head of Communications

Here's the invitation from Lisa Bennet, Director of Public Relations and
Marketing, Kaltura


Hi Everyone,

As Wikimania is right around the corner, we’ve added a new great way to
share information about the event. I would like to invite you to the
Wikimania Video Site where you can create collaborative videos. The site
already has some videos where people can add their expectations for the
event or share why they can’t join us this year, and there will be
computer stations at Wikimania for attendees to add videos and pictures
in real-time from Alexandria. Hopefully, it will be a great resource for
people that could not be there in person to see the highlights, and for
the attendees to document the event.

Check it out at:

The site is hosted on the Kaltura devwiki and uses the collaborative
video technology from Kaltura, which the Foundation partnered with late
last year to explore adding videos to Wikipedia and other projects.

You’re invited to share your experiences from Wikimania, play with the
technology, and provide your feedback.
