Your interview could be part of a communication piece like this video about the Wikimedia Strategic Plan

The Wikimedia Foundation is collecting stories from Wikipedia programmers, designers, users, editors and donors from around the world to better represent who Wikipedia is. Storytellers Victor Grigas and Matthew Roth will be at the San Francisco 02012 Hackathon from the 20th - 22nd of January and they want to hear your story. While the primary use of these stories is for upcoming fundraisers, other functions of your story include communication, design and analysis as well. In short, telling your story makes Wikipedia better.

Scheduling Your Interview[edit]

Please use this page to select a time slot for your interview. Look through the daily schedules below - any slot listed as "open" is still available. Once you find a slot that works for you, edit this page and replace "open" with your Wikipedia user name and some contact information (phone number, email, etc.). If you have any comments, questions or feel that you’d like to talk to us in person but wont be able to make it and would like to schedule a Skype, Telephone or IRC interview, please email Victor Grigas at vgrigas@wikimedia(dot)org or Matthew Roth at "mroth@wikimedia(dot)org"

Typically, we like to ask questions about:

  • yourself - your background
  • your interest in Wikipedia
  • questions for fundraising

Your interview may or may not be used by the Wikimedia Foundation for operational, promotional or fundraising purposes and may be seen in presentations, email, the web, visual or print media. There is a legal release that you will have to sign to be interviewed. If you have any questions, please contact vgrigas@wikimedia(dot)org
