It’s a good time for NaBloPoMo, because there seems to be a lot going on. Like:
- WMF fundraiser starting very soon, and recent Annual Report released
- The Free Software Foundation has released GFDL 1.3, an important step down the slow path of making Wikimedia content CC-BY-SA compatible. Joyous celebration outside the Wikimedia community, instant pessimism and nitpicking from within. Go figure.
- sudden bursts of discussion on foundation-l, partly about the lack of discussion on foundation-l
- the new Open Video Alliance
and lots of other stuff.
It was a nice surprise to see the front page of English Wikipedia today:
I’m not sure who organises these things (well actually, I think Featured Articles still has its BDFL position, “Featured Articles Director”, who decides when which articles get to appear on the main page), but: nice work. It’s a nice, relatively subtle way to acknowledging this major event in US affairs without alienating the readership of the rest of the world.
