BUMP!

This seems to have been missed by the board - any comments?

 Hi everyone,

 This is my first post here. I've been responsible for some discussion at
 the BBC about a possible contribution to the Wikipedia project from the
 BBC - I think it's come up on the list too. There's no hard proposal or
 plan, just an ongoing discussion of the appropriate relationship of a
 national public service content creator and the leading free knowledge
 source on the net.

 There's been some discussion of a 'BBC Wikipedia Club' for wannabe
 contributors/editors who work at the BBC, about more formally gifting
 content to Wikipedia and - more ambitiously - about hiring a 'Social
 Media Editor' to manage the corporation's relationship with Wikipedia
 and other open media sources.

 Question: would it be appropriate for one or more BBC people with an
 interest in collaboration to come along to the AGM? If so, should we
 bring a formal contribution or just sit quietly at the back? If not, is
 there a more appropriate forum we could get involved with?

Does it include anyone who knows about the dirac codec? Medium term
that is something wikipedia is going to be looking to use.

People trying to manage their relationship with wikipedia is the kind
of thing that gets wikipedians paranoid.
