Re: Wikimania-l Digest, Vol 166, Issue 1

I share your melancholy, Phoebe. While I’ve attended 2 WikiCons (2018 & 2019) this would have been my first Wikimania, and I was sooo looking forward to it. 😢  I try to keep up with things via the mailing lists and online meetings but life keeps getting in the way.  I’d like to carve out a little niche for myself as a useful volunteer at the events so add me to whatever list you think I’ll fit. I’m a retired tv producer/documentary filmmaker/photog/video photog but I can also pull weeds, plant seeds, wash dishes and cook. 😊

Best wishes!

Dearest Wikimaniacs,

I've found myself this week catching myself at various times feeling
melancholy. Yes, there's a lot (a lot) of stuff going on the world and it's
been a very, very hard year. But there's one particular thing that I've
been thinking about this week, which is - this was supposed to be Wikimania
week, starting in a few days.

If the pandemic hadn't happened, I (and perhaps you) would be on our way to
Bangkok soon, to celebrate the 16th Wikimania. We'd be connecting in person
about all the things our movement does, online and off. We'd be making new
friends and renewing old friendships and getting rejuvenated once again for
the work we do.

I miss you all terribly, and I also want to celebrate that we've had 15 --
and counting -- amazing, life-changing movement-wide conferences, held all
around the world.

Andrew, Richard and I are starting a new podcast series to celebrate
Wikimania and our history, called "Wikipedia: year by year". We'll be
chatting with invited guests to discuss the world of Wikimedia each year,
seen through the lens of Wikimania. We're starting with Wikimania 2005, of
course -- the very first Wikimania, held this week (well, August 4th) in
2005 in Frankfurt, Germany.

Tune in this Sunday, 19:00 UTC (3PM EST) to listen to us and some special
guests talk about that Wikimania, why it was so cool, and what the world of
Wikimedia was like in 2005. Send us questions and comments on social media,
add your own experiences to the etherpad, and watch live (or watch the
stream afterwards).

etherpad for comments & story-telling, before or during the episode:
https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/Wikipedia_Year_by_Year__2005

And regardless of whether this year would have been your 16th Wikimania,
your first Wikimania, or you weren't going to attend in person: let's
remember and celebrate the strength and the joy of our movement in any way
we can. Let's celebrate the late nights and the dance parties and the
multilingualism and the hacking and... staying up to make just one more
edit.

I miss you!
Phoebe

p.s. our hope is to not stop with 2005, but go through all of the years,
building towards the 20th anniversary of Wikipedia on Jan 15, 2021. Help us
build out the series and ideas for episodes (and guest suggestions) on
meta!

I may be basically retired from en.Wiki, but as a seasoned Wikimaniac, a 20-year resident of Thailand, and knowing Bangkok like the back of my hand, if all goes well for 2021, I'll be there and more than willing to lend a helping hand. I would welcome the opportunity to meet some more users for real after years of happy collaboration.
