The central Wikipedia Ten page has rolled out phase of its communication
toolkit. It has a wider 10-year what we've accomplished scenario.

Any idea on who was the first Wikipedian from India? Any way to find out??

warm regards,
Pradeep Mohandas

Subject: [WikiX-l] W10: Communications Toolkit Phase I
To: Planning for WP 10th anniversary <wiki...@lists.wikimedia.org>

Hello, everyone:

Following up on the email we sent out last week, we have Phase I of the
Community Communications Toolkit up:

Phase I stresses two things for volunteers: telling your own story NOW and
helping to pull together background information on the history of Wikipedia
and the global magnitude of our work.

As discussed in the last email, we understand that most people don’t fully
realize we’re a mission-driven, non-profit movement run by real, everyday
people who care about providing a free public service to the world. Often,
Wikipedia is thought to be a static product or service, not a living,
breathing community of people who care. While some of us in the Wikimedia
community are dedicated to communications work, all of us can use this
10-year anniversary as an opportunity to educate the world about who we are,
the work that we do and the mission that drives us. The first—and most
important—thing we can do RIGHT NOW is tell our own stories in our own words
and encourage others who care about our work to do the same. Over the past
10 years, what has Wikipedia come to mean to the world? What was it like
before there was a Wikipedia in your language? How will it impact the next
ten years? We're encouraging all volunteers and anyone who cares about our
projects to publicly tell their personal Wikipedia stories via letters to
the editor, op-eds and personal or chapter blog posts.   If volunteers don't
have a blog or aren't comfortable sharing thoughts publicly, we've created a
page to post on wiki as well: http://ten.wikipedia.org/wiki/Our_Stories

Additionally, we need help curating all of the interesting information about
Wikipedia including:
*Wikipedia's Historical Timeline:
*Stats and information to help demonstrate the magnitude of Wikipedia:
*Wikipedia's top 10s: http://ten.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia%27s_Top_Ten

There's a wealth of interesting information out there, but hasn't been
captured and organized so that we can all access it easily.  If you remember
any fun facts and Wikipedia trivia from the last ten years, please share!

We plan to send a variation of this email to Internal and Foundation.  We'll
likely post Phase II of the Toolkit on Friday which should also include a
draft media advisory we plan to send to press next Tuesday. Until then,
please provide any feedback you have.
