The board of Wikimedia Denmark has committed itself to quarterly reports. This is the first one.
Regards, Ole Quarterly Report - April 2011 Members and Economy Wikimedia Denmark has 20 members at the end of first quarter and a treasury of approx. DKK 1650,- Activities in 1st quarter 2011 Internal Two board meetings was conducted; a physical presence meeting in February and one online in March. External During the quarter, Wikipedia's tenth anniversary gave some Danish publicity. Unfortunately we had to cancel the planned Wiki-X celebration, but in 2012 we will be celebrating the Danish-language Wikipedias 10 years anniversary. We have continued our talks with various cultural organizations (detailed below) and with IT-Politisk Forening (IT-Political Association). We were not able to conduct the planned seminar Kulturarv og Delingskultur (Cultural Heritage and Shared Culture), but we continue our dialogue with Dansk Historisk Fællesråd (Danish Historical Confederation). IT-Political Association of Denmark In February we had a meeting with IT-Political Association of Denmark to see if we have some common interests and concerns. Through a good dialogue we found out that these common interests only are a few, as their primary concern is about individuals rights and privacy on the internet. In some areas, as copyright, we have some common interests, we have decided to remain in contact, though no further activities are currently planned. Planned activities in Q2-Q3-Q4 2011 Collaboration with the National Museum of Denmark The National Museum of Denmark wants to create Wikipedia articles on all Danish Runestones. To accomodate this, they will seek to assign an employee specialised in Runestones and donate pictures of runestones to the Wikimedia Commons. The National Museum will create a day, especially for wikipedians to photograph numerous artefacts and the Museum will further explore the possibility of donating an amount of existing images to Wikimedia Commons. In late 2011 or in the beginning of 2012, the National Museum advertises a Wikipedian-in-residence position. Collaboration with The Danish State Archives The Danish State Archives wants more public awareness of its holdings, and will invite Wikipedians to photograph a number of archival materials, selected jointly by the parties. The Danish State Archives are examining their options to receive a Wikipedian-in-residence during 2011. An announcement for this must be prepared. Wiki Loves Monuments There has been an initial meeting with the Heritage Agency of Denmark on buildings, monuments, etc. WikiWednesday WikiWednesday is expected to resume in May. -- http://palnatoke.org * @palnatoke * +4522934588 _______________________________________________ Please note: all replies sent to this mailing list will be immediately directed to Foundation-L, the public mailing list about the Wikimedia Foundation and its projects.
