From Wikimania 2013 • Hong Kong

Hi and welcome to get in touch with GLAM-Wiki in Germany. I am really looking forward to meet many of You at the Wikimania. We should exchange experiences and ideas. And have fun.

1) Sessions

Together with User:Dirk Franke I would like to invite You to our discussion on the visions for the Wikipedia in the next 10 years"Imagine the Wikipedia in 2022" on Saturday in the auditorium at 4 pm. Our panel combines both approved Wikipedians from all over world and experts. If You choose to come we will have a good talk. On Sunday morning (11.30) Marcus Cyron, former Wikipedian in residence at the German Archaeological Institute, and I would like You to join us to share our experiences of a "GLAMorous year". We would like to learn about Your opinion on shaping new interfaces for knowledge transfer, or institutional readiness. Sounds mysterious? Please come and find out.

2) meet in the Chapter's village

This year many Wikimedia Chapters choosed to arrange for meeting opportunities within the Wikimania and formed the Chapter's village just where the food is. :) So just drop in and leave a message on the German desk. Or join the speedgeeking session on Friday 3.30 pm and meet board members and staff from Berlin. I'll be there before the coffee break and happy to share your first impressions on this year Wikimania.
