I couldn’t think of anything terribly witty to put as a title. Sorry.
This post is going to be about next weekend’s GLAMcamp (yes, GLAMcamps do seem to be all I blog about – tell me if you’ve got any better ideas). The inaugural event in New York this past May was relatively small in comparison to what this will be like: the 25 attendees there seemed like an adequately-sized group for the tasks in hand. This time there are over 50 Wikimedians coming – and a larger “to-do” list.
As I said in my post way back in April, GLAMcamps are a really great way of getting GLAM work done – in one go. Suggested tasks include:
- What happens in 2012 – “Where do we go from here?”
- Documentation (yay!)
- The mass upload and metrics stuff that I didn’t understand when they talked about it in NYC and I don’t understand now.
- Revamping glamwiki.org.
- A “freedom declaration” which GLAMs would hypothetically sign, to do with copyright.
- Wiki Loves Monuments
The event is also bringing together Wikimedians from 21 different countries: India, Philippines, Kenya, Australia, USA, Canada, Serbia, Israel, Chile, Denmark, UK, Belgium, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Holland, Czech Republic, Poland, Macedonia, and Sweden. (To think there were only a measly 8 countries represented in NYC!)
See you all in Amsterdam. (That sounds so clichéd.)
