Hi folks, We were recently asked if WMF could provide some awareness/info sponsorship for a new conference being hosted by the UC Berkeley law school titled 'Innovate/Activate.' It's a conference about DIY Activism, Internet advocacy, IP issues, and how make more sharing happen in the world. The conference is being hosted Saturday, April 20 and Sunday April 21. Our own Wikimedia Board of Trustees member Kat Walsh will be attending, and it appears she may even run an awesome talk on the WP Blackout and SOPA. Other Wikimedia Foundation staff may be there.
Wikimedia Foundation is an 'intellectual sponsor' of the event (what a charming way to describe ourselves), rather than a financial sponsor. We're spreading the world to people in the area and joining several other like-minded orgs. Of course we don't necessarily endorse the specific panel topics or activities, but the spirit of the event is in line with topics and issues we care about: free and open web, sharing, releasing information etc etc. More about the conference here: http://www.innovateactivate.org/ And if you're really feeling ambitious you can propose a relevant talk, although you may only have a few hours left to do so... Late notice is better than none... http://www.innovateactivate.org/getactivated Onpassing for your info! -- Jay Walsh Head of Communications WikimediaFoundation.org blog.wikimedia.org +1 (415) 839 6885 x 6609, @jansonw _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-SF mailing list Wikimedia-SF@lists.wikimedia.org https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-sf
