But I'll make a review of the progress on Swiss museums, or lack thereof, nevertheless.
The aim is to obtain a maximum of Free media from museums in Switzerland (French-speaking in my case because I'm based in Lausanne). So far, I've not found anybody willing to consider a partnership on the same magnitude than what's happened between Toulouse and Wikimedia France (See http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Rama/Muséum_de_Toulouse and links at bottom). So for now everything is made on a small-scale, case-by-case basis. Most museums allow photography without a flash. Interestingly, a number of museums allow it with a tripod, either as a matter of policy (Morges, Vevey, Musée Bolo, Vidy) or when you suavely sweet-talk the cashier at the entrance (Lausanne, etc.). http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Rama/Château_de_Morges http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Rama/Musée_de_la_photographie_de_Vevey http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Rama/Musée_Bolo http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Rama/Musée_romain_de_Vidy http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Rama/Musée_historique_de_Lausanne http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Rama/Musée_historique_de_Vevey Some of the most important ones apparently can't even be bothered to tell us to sod off (Neuchâtel). There is a slight tendency of some institutions to try and provide material themselves under a Free licence, usually at a low resolution. The Laténium has indicated an interest in doing this, though not much has materialised, and the Musée d'Histoire du Valais has provided this: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Rama/Département_Préhistoire_et_Antiquité_du_Musée_d'Histoire_du_Valais To summarise, moral is good (mostly because we can't really *lose" what we've already got, so we have a monotonically increasing amount of material), and progress is steady at the rate suggested in the following video from 4:40 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zm3c0olAzvw Cheers! -- Rama _______________________________________________ http://wikimedia.ch Wikimedia CH website Wikimediach-l mailing list https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediach-l
