I am very pleased to announce that WikiConference USA is less than 30 days away! Over the last few months, Wikimedia NYC and Wikimedia DC have been collecting curated submissions on a diversity of wiki and free/open knowledge-related topics (with tracks on Community, Tech, Outreach, GLAM, Education), and recruited some excellent keynote speakers who can speak to their personal activism and leadership in these domains.
But this is a "Wiki" conference, and what it thrives on most is your participation, your differing areas of experience and expertise, to enliven and enrich all of the sessions we have planned together. And, exciting too, there still will be numerous opportunities for "unconference" sessions led by participants on the fly, and we encourage you to bring the ideas from your domain for these sessions as well. Here are the details for the conference: Dates: Friday, May 30, 2014 - Sunday, June 1, 2014 Location: New York Law School (185 West Broadway, New York, NY 10013) Website: http://wikiconferenceusa.org Email: wiki...@wikimedianyc.org Registration: http://wikiconusa.eventbrite.org/ And our distinguished and dynamic roster of keynote speakers: *Phoebe Ayers - Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees *Sumana Harihareswara - Wikimedia Foundation Engineering Community Team; Advisor, Ada Initiative *Christie Koehler - Community Building Education Lead, Mozilla Corporation *DC Vito, Executive Director - The LAMP/MediaBreaker For more information, please review our official press release below! We hope you will join us and help us spread the word! https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:WikiCon_USA_2014_Press_Release_v1.pdf Thanks, Richard Knipel (User:Pharos) Wikimedia NYC P.S. You are also invited to join the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center for an Edit-a-thon on Saturday May 10: http://smithsonianapa.org/project/wiki
