the contest idea sounds really nice. is http://www.geograph.org.uk also something which should be included in the discussion? it gains track in other countries as well, like germany: http://geo.hlipp.de/. btw, wolf ludwig is currently trying to organize a visit of liam wyatt, now wikimedia foundations ambassador for glam (galleries, libraries, archives and monuments). of course he would be keen to meet as many wikipedians as possible, so we could try to schedule something. probable dates include friday 18.3 until monday 21.3. what do you think of a "wikipedians evening" or "stammtisch" in zürich or bern that date? rupert. _______________________________________________ http://wikimedia.ch Wikimedia CH website Wikimediach-l mailing list https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediach-l
