Avoiding mention of Wikipedia would be a good start, it's a large and popular website and any mention of it is bound to mix in peoples preconceptions. It may also be worthwhile to mention your support of Wikieducator, a commonwealth-based charity which is both similar in some ways to Wikiversity+Wikibooks. Wayne Mackintosh, a member of the WMF advisory board is also a prominent member of Wikieducator, so maybe you could get some support from him? You also want to be clear that you are supporting MediaWiki, the open-source software. --Andrew Whitworth _______________________________________________ Wikimedia UK mailing list wikimediau...@wikimedia.org http://mail.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediauk-l WMUK: http://uk.wikimedia.org
