The event will be entitled: Wikimedia@MW2010
conference listing:

Date: Tuesday, April 13. 9am-5pm Place: Denver, Colorado. Grand Hyatt hotel.[1]

Wikimedia Attendees[edit]

Subjects of Discussion[edit]

  • Copyright status of reproductions (see also NPG issue)
  • Reporting metrics (see also Paris multimedia conference notes on Metrics)
Is this list open to editing? I might add sharing curation expertise, distributing classification work, and improving descriptive texts (translation, expansion, context) Sj+ translate
Of course this list is open to editing! :-) For the moment we'll pile in the ideas, and sort it into a schedule a bit later. However, keep in mind that a) it's not a training day but a strategic thing, and b) it needs to be more than just a "list of projects we can do together".

Would add digital image restoration, scalability plans, and benefits to donating institutions. Durova


The schedule is very flexible but the general aspects are 9am-5pm, two tea breaks one lunch break, 1 main room and up to 5 side rooms. The event is not just "wikimedians lecture museum reps" so the schedule will have two-way elements (i.e. we don't get to decide just all by ourselves). But, this is a start:

8:30 - Registration

9:00 - Welcome
Introduction, housekeeping and welcoming by David/Jennifer/Liam

9:10 - Keynotes

  • Wikimedia representative (tbd)
  • Museum sector representative (tbd)

10:20 - The Community
Attending Wikimedians introduce themselves and areas of expertise

10:30 Morning Tea

11:00 Session 1

  • Room 1 - Copyright
  • Room 2 -
  • Room 3 -

1:00 Lunch

2:00 Session 2

  • Room 1 - Multimedia restoration
  • Room 2 -
  • Room 3 -

3:30 Afternoon Tea

Summary from rooms, requests from each sector to the other

5:00 Close

Travel, Accomodation[edit]

  • Accomodation and travel covered by the WMF (up to a fixed total $ amount)
  • A limited number of Wikimedians can attend the full conference if they chose to stay

However! The chapter conference is being held in Berlin 3 days after this presentation. Many Wikimedians (board, staff, chapter reps) may need to travel directly from Denver to Berlin.

Resources required, links, stuff[edit]

  • Banners (WMF to provide?)
  • Folders
  • Handouts - something from the Bookshelf project?
    • Re: handouts: a wall poster reproduction of a digitally restored featured picture could be useful.
