Gosh, it’s been a month since I posted. That wasn’t quite supposed to happen…
I owe Packt Publishing a book review. I thought I would review their MediaWiki skins book by trying to use it to create a skin. But that wasn’t very smart because it’s still a substantial amount of time and faffing around making CSS work as intended and such. So I tried to say I wouldn’t post until I wrote that review, but that hasn’t quite worked, because now LCA is next week. So I will put my self-imposed posting boycott on hold until LCA is over, and then hopefully write my bloody review.
- Happy Wikipedia day. It’s already a day over in Australia. :) It’s hard to organise stuff two weeks after New Years. If only they had held off a few weeks starting Wikipedia, it would be so much more convenient… :P
- Wikimedia Australia held its first AGM, and as a consequence I am its President. Exciting. :D (This is what it looked like, in case you are curious ;))
- Well, 2008 is over, is Wikimedia Commons having a Picture of the Year competition? At the moment the answer is “definitely maybe”. The photos are all organised and the same software as last year can be used; it just lacks some dates (!) and some core organisers. I certainly hope it gets up; it’s one of my favourite Wikimedia events. At any rate you can get a sneak peak of the galleries. (I helped organise it last year)
- Free as in Freedom is on next Tuesday! The first event I have organised speakers for. VERY exciting. At the moment I am having small nightmares about what to do if a speaker just doesn’t show up. I suppose I will improvise. (?!) There will probably be a flurry of posting while LCA is on. (LCA = linux.conf.au, Australia’s annual national Linux conference.) As well as my miniconf, on Monday we are going to have Hobart’s first Wikipedia meetup. It’s a bit of a cheat since at least half the attendees will be out-of-towners attending the conference, but hey, it still counts. :)
