[Wikipedia-day] - Once more it is almost the most important holiday of  
the year: Wikipedia day. Now Saturday we celebrate the 10th  
anniversary of the project. The start of the very first Wikipedia, the  
English language Wikipedia.

But this is also a day of celebration for all the other many projects  
and language editions who form the Wikimedia-family;

Wiktionary, Wikinews, Wikibooks, Wikiquote, Wikisource, Wikiversity,  
Wikispecies, Commons

10 years. 400 million unique visitors a month. 80,000 active volunteer  
editors. 17 million articles (wikipedia's only). A very successful  
fundraiser ( $US  16 million).

Time to celebrate!  -  And how to do that?  - With a special celebration-wiki;
http://ten.wikipedia.org/

There are many Wikimeets and events world-wide. Check the  
celebration-wiki for an event near you. Wikipedia will also come these  
day extra in the news so watch those news reports on TV and newspapers  
to see what the traditional media write about our project.

=== Wikimedia news ===

[Steward elections] - Call for candidates for the upcoming  
steward-election. Stewards perform technical tasks on all Wikimedia  
wikis. Sort of ├╝ber admin.

[Wikimania 2011] -  Applications are open until the end of the month  
for a subsidy to go to Wikimania 2011 in Israel.

Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in  
the sum of all knowledge.
That?s our commitment.
