위키마니아에서의 직무에 관한 재단 직원 보고서

7월 12일부터 7월 14일까지 전세계로부터 온 위키메디안들이 금년의 연중 위키마니아 컨퍼런스를 위하여 워싱턴 D.C.에 모였다. 이 회의는 위키미디어 DC에 의하여 조직되었다 (참조 2012년 7월 위키미디어 주요 사건 금월의 운동 주요 사건). 그들 가운데는 위키미디어 재단 직원, 동료와 계약자들이 동참하였습니다.

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.

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.
