- The Libre Graphics Meeting, to be held in Poland in May, is looking for some financial help, with a deadline: $20k by 18th April. If you think kindly of GIMP and Inkscape, please donate to help out their development if you can, or else, pass the word on to someone else who might be able to help.
- Creative Commons continues their active engagement with the Wikimedia community in moving through the CC-BY-SA migration checklist and releasing a draft statement of intent for CC-BY-SA. It seems pretty awesome. I will be interested to read any major complaints.
The checklist came out of Wikimedian discussions about “Wikipedia migrating to CC-BY-SA” or as I came to think of it, “equivalentising” the GFDL and CC-BY-SA.
- Not The Wikipedia Weekly is well-buoyed and already up to Episode 6. I haven’t yet caught up with four and five, but they don’t have nearly as much drama.
After listening to it: Wow, you’d hardly recognise them. Unfortunately this episode is far too whiny and boring. Strong critiques of Wikipedia’s malaises by participants able to refrain from hyperbole and name-calling appear to remain the domain of Wikipedia Weekly.
WW seems somewhat invigorated through by the appearance of its non-rival, with three episodes in five weeks and the promise of more to come very soon.
- Wikimania 2008 scholarship applications are now open. Oddly there is no closing date for them yet. (If you are contemplating attending, here’s a hint when checking out airfare costs: be sure to check for flight to Cairo, not Alexandria. Cairo to Alexandria is three hours by train and flying to CAI instead of ALY will likely be a huge bundle cheaper.)
I would reply here, but… nobody would see it: http://www.alexa.com/data/details/traffic_details/modernthings.org
