Beyond these, Wikimedia Foundation staff, fellows and contractors also participated in various other panels.

The fundraising team recorded over 100 on-camera interviews with Wikimedia editors, programmers and volunteers from all over the world. Interviews are inspiring new editor appeals (and a short video about Wikipedia), which we will showcase during the annual fundraiser.

Other movement highlights

Wikimania 2012 banner


In mid-July, over 1,400 attendees came to Washington, DC (US) to participate in Wikimania 2012. The annual global conference of Wikimedians was organized by Wikimedia District of Columbia. The main event from July 12-14 was accompanied by a hackathon, an unconference and various other side events.

The schedule contained presentations by over 275 speakers (see also the Foundation highlights), and videos are being uploaded. In the opening session, Mary Gardiner (co-founder of the Ada Initiative) talked about fostering diversity, and Jimmy Wales gave his traditional "The State of the Wiki" speech. In another plenary session, the Board of Trustees answered questions by Wikimedians.

Wikipedian in Residence for a whole town


Catalan Wikimedian David Parreño began serving as Wikipedian in Residence for the town of Palafrugell on the Mediterranean sea, in Catalonia (an autonomous community of Spain). With the approval of the town council, he is helping several local cultural institutions to improve their international online presence.

Russian Wikipedia blackout

On July 10, the Russian Wikipedia community blacked out their project for 24 hours, to protest a new law about Internet restrictions which had been proposed in the Russian parliament (Duma). Although the bill passed afterwards, some changes were made to it, and according to the head of Wikimedia Russia, Vladimir Medeyko, the blackout gained much media attention in Russia.
