Hi Team, Do you think we could host and have successful Wikipedia and Wikimedia Kenya Stories Broadcast worldwide??
Well Here is our chance...... > Hi! > > My name is Victor Grigas and I'm a storyteller with the Wikimedia > Foundation in San Francisco. I'm chronicling the inspiring stories of the > Wikipedia community from around the world. Stories are critical to inform > and inspire the general public to support the Wikipedia movement by > donating their money or to become volunteers themselves. > > I spoke with Asaf Bartov, and he told me you would be a good person to > speak with. > > After seeing this inspiring story about Kenya's very own Gabriel Nderitu - > > > http://newsfeed.time.com/2010/10/26/kenyan-man-builds-airplane-in-yard-based-mostly-on-wikipedia-entries/ > > > and hearing about the 'Project for Kenyan Schools', I thought that it > might be fruitful to plan a trip to Kenya to interview Kenyan Wikipedians > face-to-face. > > I would need to confirm that I have at least 15 people to speak with who > may have interesting stories about Wikipedia to make the trip worth the > money. If needed, I could hire a translator. My understanding is that iHub > in Nairobi hosts Wiki-meetups once a month.
