I am certain that the badassitude of our award photo overwhelms any and all
skepticism the Internet might -- TOTALLY unjustly[1][2][3] -- feel about
SXSW.

Congratulations, you guys!

I'm so happy for everyone -- particularly for all the folks in the developing world who are now getting access to free knowledge they wouldn't otherwise have.

That's really uplifting in so many ways -- well done!

This news was posted on facebook and a guy from Angola just asked when
it will be available there for the Portuguese Wikipedia as well

https://www.facebook.com/wikipediapt/posts/228266030650914?comment_id=947903&offset=0&total_comments=2

Kul, maybe it would be more useful for Angola and Mozambique than the
Banana Republic. :)

When I do the hangouts with Angolans and Mozambicans (on my spare
time, sure), [Note] I'll analyse this to have a better insight. ;)

Tom

[Note] The statistics of a facebook page (led by volunteers) of the
Portuguese Wikipedia [1]  has shown some curious numbers because
people who usually like it are from Luanda and Maputo cities in
Africa, I've shared this information with some wikipedians [2]
(obviously further analysis on this data with other methods is
necessary) and invited experienced editors to participate of google
hangouts where we are going to invite people from these countries to
explain about Wikipedia and the Education Program. [3]

Just to you have an idea, Luanda (population ~5 mi) has about 1.700
people who liked it, Maputo (pop. ~1.2 mi) 750, followed by São Paulo
(pop. 11.3 mi) and Rio de Janeiro (6.2 mi) with 230 and 180,
respectively. Maybe there is some bias on facebook we cannot have
access to, but it will be really interesting to try to figure out that
and the videos of these hangout can also be really interesting to try
to understand how people in these countries use Wikipedia. A mobile
project in these countries could also be interesting, but not sure if
we can have it in the short term.

I'll try to do these hangouts withe them, [3] anyone here is welcome to help.
