Hello.
I am Wikipedian in residence and want to upload a high quality tiff archive
and I can't seem to upload more than 100.00 MB. I get this message: You
can only upload files with a size of up to 100.00 MB. What is happening ?
Do you know what I can do?

==Highlights==

===Edit-a-thon at Museo Soumaya===

On June 6th, we performed our first Edit-a-thon in Museo Soumaya, a private
museographic institution belonging to Fundación Carlos Slim, at its Plaza
Carso venue, previously planned jointly with the museum's curators about
topics related to their collections.

As the first activity, the Wikimedia México community attendees received a
special backstage guided tour with the museum closed. At 10 a.m. we began
the edition marathon and a workshop for beginners attending the event who
do not have any previous experience in Wiki edition. The event was held at
the lobby of the museum, a plain and blank area surrounded by master
workshops as an exact replica of Michelangelo's Pietà and Rodin's Kiss,
plus murals by Mexican masters Rufino Tamayo and Diego Rivera. The event
generated awareness among the visitors of the museum, some of whom received
explanations offered b the volunteers of the Mexican chapter about the
activity we had been performing.

Wikimedia Mexico's volunteers, jointly with the museum, created 9 new
articles in Spanish Wikipedia and one in Wikivoyage. Rufino Tamayo's works
such as Naturaleza muertaand El día y la noche, or Edgar Degas's Woman
Bathing have now an article on the main Internet reference. This event was
actively supported by the director of the museum, Alfonso Miranda, as well
as by his research and outreach staff, who provided the information
necessary to give depth to the writing and verifiability. Officialy the
event ended at 3 pm, but some of the members of the chapter remained at the
museum discussing and improving the contents written with the support of
Soumaya staff until 10 pm.

This event was part of the GLAM initiative between the Mexican chapter and
Museo Soumaya.

===First Spanish Republican Exile Edit-a-thon===

Francisco Franco's dictatorship and the Civil War in Spain forced hundreds
of Spanish citizens to exile: they left their country as one of the
aftermaths of the persecution period. Nearly 220 thousand supporters of the
Second Republic left Spain to other countries such as Argentina and Mexico,
who welcomed him differently.

To mark the 75th anniversary of the arrival of Sinaia vessel to the Mexican
port of Veracruz, three Wikimedia chapters (Wikimedia Argentina, Wikimedia
Spain and Wikimedia Mexico) ran the First Spanish Republican Exile
Edit-a-thon of Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons and Wikisource about the
historical facts, biographies and testimonials related to this process.

The coordination of this event, performed under Iberocoop's initiative,
meant that the work would be done at different times on June 16th. Articles
were written in Spanish and Catalan. Several original texts and photographs
of documents of those years were downloaded to both Wikisource and Commons
either during the event or during the days following. The event was
simultaneously held at Centro Cultural de España en México, in Mexico City,
and at Casal de Catalunya in Buenos Aires, Argentina; editors from Spain
participated from their home computers in the Spanish territory.

===Campus Party 2014===

This year Campus Party took place in Zapopan, Jalisco in the metropolitan
area of Guadalajara, western Mexico. Wikimedia Mexico participated through
our members Alan Lazalde, Omar Sandoval and Salvador Alcántar. During the
event was diffused Wikimedia Mexico activities and sought new contacts
within the technological environment. Also the team gave two talks, one
about Wikipedia and other about Wikipedia Education Program in Mexico, but
also was given last minute talks within the event. Near 300 stickers of
Wikipedia and Wikimedia Mexico were distributed. Due to some acts of sexism
and misogyny occurred during the event, the chapter members demonstrate his
oppose against that kind of doings in technology events. The board of
Wikimedia Mexico drafted and approved a special position on the situation,
which was widely shared on social media.

==Migrahack Mexico City==

Wikimedia Mexico was part of the initiative of running a migrahack in
Mexico City and supported the organization. The point of the event was to
gather together journalists, academics, students, NGOs and programmers to
collect and put order to disperse data about migration in Mexico and to do
some data mining to obtain new knowledge on that topics, and generate
statistics. Wikimedia Mexico, trough our volunteer and Board member Alan
Lazalde gave some talks to show the importance of free knowledge and open
access to data in order to create new knowledge based on that.

The results of the Migrahack are in the web page ot the Institute for
Justice and Journalism.

==Aldea Digital 2014==

For the second year in a row, Aldea Digital was held at Mexico City, a
digital inclusion event at the main square of Mexico City, with a very high
attendance. A strategy covering the full 17 days of the event was planned,
but a few days before the event its organizers made changes to its program
and thus only required Wikimedia Mexico's presence during only one day of
talks and a keynote by Iván Martínez.

On April 11, the Wikimedia Mexico team gave a full day of introductory 20
minutes talks of Wikipedia. According to organizers stats, about 1,300
people attended to our program of talks given by volunteers Omar Sandoval
(10 talks), Christian Cariño (5 talks), Andrés Cruz y Corro (5 talks),
Adrián Cerón (5 talks), Rodolfo Galicia (5 talks), Anny Garcia and Gustavo
Sandoval Kingwergs (5 talks). This event required a high effort on our
part, but was a very grateful experience for our chapter. In order to avoid
the fatigue of talking for several hours in a row, our volunteers took
turns giving the talks, reducing the overall tiredness and encouraging
everyone to become a better speaker for future Wikimedia Mexico events.

On April 21, Iván Martínez gave the keynote Freedom in the Free
Encyclopedia. The Foundations of Wikipedia's Freedom. The talk, with a
duration of an hour and a half, was attended by 131 participants and was
presented as one of the main contents of the event by Aldea Digital's
organizing staff. In the same stage Steve Wozniak, Moshe Hogeg (Mobli
creator), Walter Bender (MIT researcher) and Yin Lou (Coursera) gave a
keynote each. -

==Children's Day at Biblioteca Vasconcelos==

The Biblioteca Vasconcelos (Vasconcelos Library), venue for the next
Wikimania 2015, held an event organized on occasion of Children's Day,
celebrated annually in Mexico on April 30. The Library gave us the option
to read stories to children. However, when the Wikimedia Mexico community
realized the public was expected to be aged 3 to 10 years, we decided to
innovate and make an original story based on the core values ​​of
Wikipedia: free knowledge, sharing, curiosity and freedom.

Our volunteer Andrés Cruz y Corro, also a NaNoWriMo participant, wrote a
story called An adventure called knowledge. This story was told on April
27 and was very well received by the children as a way to convey the values
​​behind Wikipedia in a fun and different way. We encourage other Wikimedia
colleagues to use this story as a way to reach out to younger children and
instill the seed of free knowledge. A translated copy of the story to
English will be available in a few days.
