Hi everyone, We have a robust experimental program set up to include remote participants who want to follow Wikimania this year — and to ensure that all program material is archived in a singular location for future use. Please feel free to forward this email widely – or post the content anywhere you'd like. There is also a plain-text version <https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikimedia-l/2017-August/088307.html> , suitable for viewers and readers, that you are welcome to copy and use.
*Livestreaming and Recording Select Talks* We are experimenting with livestreaming the keynote sessions this year simultaneously on YouTube and Facebook Live. Here is the complete schedule of livestreamed events <https://wikimania2017.wikimedia.org/wiki/Livestreamed_keynotes> . *Please feel free to share this on social media, on-wiki, and with any groups you are a part of* — we want to ensure that people who would like to tune in know when these are taking place. In addition, we have the equipment and staffing to record all sessions taking place in Ballroom West. We do not have the capacity to move equipment between rooms. You can see all planned recorded sessions <https://wikimania2017.wikimedia.org/wiki/All_Session_Notes>  — these will be posted as soon as they are encoded and uploaded to YouTube. We will measure the success of this program and see if we can expand for future events. *Notetaking for every session * Because we cannot record all sessions, we are asking for your help to ensure that all sessions are documented for remote attendees and for future documentation. If you are leading a session at Wikimania this year, we are asking that you request that someone in your session take notes. If you are attending a session, please remind the leader to assign a notetaker (or volunteer to take notes with others!) This will help remote participants follow talks, and also ensure that sessions are well-documented. Below are instructions for notetakers — this information is also available on the speaker's page <https://wikimania2017.wikimedia.org/wiki/Speaker_information#Notetaking_during_sessions>  and on the Session Notes page <https://wikimania2017.wikimedia.org/wiki/All_Session_Notes>  , where we hope to collect all session notes, recordings, and conference presentations. 1. Copy the template here https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/Wikimania2017-template  into a new Etherpad file with the following naming structure: https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/Wikimania2017-YourSession  (Replace 'Your Session' with the name of the session you are attending or leading.) 2. Take notes and fill out the information in the document 3. After the session, add the Etherpad link to the page where we are collecting notes <https://wikimania2017.wikimedia.org/wiki/All_Session_Notes>.  4. Speakers, please add any links to slideshows, decks, videos, or links to this site. Added bonus: The All Session Notes page <https://wikimania2017.wikimedia.org/wiki/All_Session_Notes>  allows you to sort sessions at Wikimania by topic and theme. You can search for 'movement strategy' and find all of the sessions that involve movement strategy, or 'GLAM' and find all of the sessions that are about GLAM in some way...so it may be a useful tool to help figure out which sessions to attend. *Social Media: *We will be monitoring the hashtag #wikimania and #wikimania2017 to scoop things into the @wikimania and @wikimedia accounts on Twitter. PLEASE feel free to livetweet sessions (with permission) and use the hashtags! Please let me know if you have any questions, comments or concerns. We're looking forward to ensuring that editors and readers — in Montreal and afar — can come together and participate in Wikimania.
