Hi Folks

In the last couple of days, we've had a couple of really insightful, 
well-written articles on Wikipedia and you, the community. 


I want to acknowledge the behind-the-scenes work of Tinu and Moka.  (Most of 
you know Tinu - who's a community member based out of Bangalore.  For those of 
you who don't know, Moka handles Global Communications for the Wikimedia 
Foundation.)  They have worked on making sure that we convey the right messages 
as well as making the articles as inclusive of as many community members as 
possible - by covering the stories of as wide a range of editors as possible.  
The result of their work is the high-quality articles I've referenced above.

We will continue to get requests from the press and I'd love to have them tell 
the tales of an even larger and more varied group of community members.   It'll 
help to convey the diversity and magic of the community.  Can I request you let 
Tinu and I know (offlist please) if you are willing to be interviewed by 
journalists in future?  Every one of your stories will add emotion to an 
article - no matter how simple or otherwise your story is. 

Also, a practical issue that we are facing is that we don't have enough 
print-quality images of community meet ups.  Can you please add as many 
high-resolution images of as many community meet ups, outreach events, etc. as 
you can to Commons (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page) so that the 
press can access it more easily - and they can celebrate the human face of 
Wikipedia in newspapers and magazines?

Many thanks.

Warm Regards,
