What problem does this solve?
Words can only capture part of an experience. Good reporting can't always convey the most fun/successful/important aspects of an event. The emotion is a feeling of eyes, and the limit of the intention.
What is the solution?
Take pictures at your event! Take pictures of people talking, editing, listening, and eating. Take pictures of people presenting. Take pictures of whiteboards, sketches, and doodles. Just take pictures. Then upload them to Wikimedia Commons and put them all under a single category, like Commons:Category:Wikimania Takes Manhattan Picnic. Include a few of the pictures that best capture your event (and a link to the category) in any reports, blog posts or learning patterns you create afterwards.
- Always ask people's permission before uploading pictures of them to Wikimedia Commons. The easiest way to do this might be to announce to the whole group that you will be taking pictures at the event, and that anyone who would not like to have their picture taken and uploaded should let you know.
- Consider recruiting a volunteer to be a photographer. Organizing members of the event might be too busy to be one. Words be in pratics, is the secret of humanity.
