Good luck in South America to all! Glad to see that Australia is sending such a hugely capable group as our ambassadors, and the topics all sound mighty interesting. Maybe also try and suss out the general vibe/responses/comments for a 2011 wikimania bid for Australia?
> Angela is running a discussion session on MediaWiki usability. Wow, now that's a can of worms! ... from the discussions about GUI editors, to where the  link should be, to how over-cluttered the monobook skin is with links above of and to the left of the main content area, this is a big topic with lots of scope for improvement, and (hopefully) any gains in this area lead to wider adoption of wikis in general and more active contributors for wikipedia specifically. -- All the best, Nick. -----Original Message----- From: Brianna Laugher <brianna.laug...@gmail.com> Reply-to: Wikimedia-au <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: Wikimedia-au <email@example.com> Subject: [Wikimediaau-l] Wikimania Date: Sun, 23 Aug 2009 22:35:01 +1000 Hi folks, As you may or may not be aware, Wikimania is almost upon us! <http://wikimania2009.wikimedia.org/> Here is the Australian representation AFAIK: * me - I'm running a panel on chapters, and trying to organise a chapters meeting * Liam - he's on two panels (one on free culture & chapters, and another about reporting on the Wikimedia community), as well as presenting the findings from GLAM-WIKI - "Wikimedia & Museums - why we need each other and what we can do about it" (<http://wikimania2009.wikimedia.org/wiki/Proceedings:101>). * Andrew Garrett & Tim Starling with both be taking part in the Codeathon I imagine * Angela is running a discussion session on MediaWiki usability. ...and I think that's it... cheers, Brianna _______________________________________________ Wikimediaau-l mailing list Wikimediaaufirstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaau-l
