[Wikimedia-l] Nobel Peace Prize announcement and editathon

Jon Harald Søby
Hi, all!

The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize will be announced this Friday, and in
cooperation with Wikimedia Norge, the Nobel Peace Center
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nobel_Peace_Center> has invited Wikipedians
from the Norwegian Wikipedia community to an editathon to improve the
article about the winner(s?) as soon as possible. We'll be sitting
practically in the next room from where the announcement is made, updating
relevant articles as fast as we can.

For this to be a global event, I'd like to invite anyone who's interested
to join us in the IRC channel #wikipedia-nobel
<irc://freenode/#wikipedia-nobel>, where we'll be talking and coordinating.
We'll also try to livetweet the event using the hashtag #wikinobel
<https://twitter.com/hashtag/wikinobel>, probably mainly from the account
@WikimediaNorge <https://twitter.com/WikimediaNorge>.

The press conference will be start around 10:30 Norwegian time, which is *08:30
UTC*, like I said on *Friday, 10th of October*. Please join us, and help
spread this invitation to your community.

Will they release their own biographies under a free license to ease
article expansion? :)

Good question, Nemo. I don't know if it has been brought up, but we should
probably look into that. :-)

In reply to this post by Jon Harald Søby
Hi Jon,

that is a great initiative. I've already spread the word among Wikimedia
Brasil and Open Knowledge Brasil.

I'd like to suggest that you try to make a short video for the winner
asking about Wikipedia and its importance. I think Wikimedia Sweden has
made a cool short interview with some Nobel prize (I think chemestry) and
it was really good. This can be even used to outreach at universities to
bring more people to catalyse efforts to involve more schools on Wikimedia
projects.

If you can do it, please, let us know.

Cheers,

Tom

Hm. Given Wikimedia's roles in global communication, education,  diplomacy,
activism, and journalism, I hope for a day when we will be considered for
the Peace Prize. (:

I tried to get a photo of Alice Munro (2013 winner of the Nobel Prize in
Literature) for her English Wikipedia article and the experience was both
difficult and disheartening. I'd personally be much more appreciative of
freely donated images of the winners over biography text. The latter is a
lot easier to create than the former, in my experience. :-)

This sounds just great. Can't wait to see what you guys do. I'm always so
amazed at what people are building and doing. And it's great that they
reached out to you to do this.

Nice work,
/a

p.s. I know that when Americans say great or amazing too many times that we
are totally suspect, but so be it.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Nobel Peace Prize announcement and editathon

Gerard Meijssen-3
In reply to this post by Jon Harald Søby
Hoi,
Jon a great initiative. I hope many people will consider updating Wikidata
as well. As you know, Wikidata serves many languages with results when
there is no article available. It is done especially well when people
choose the "Reasonator" icon or when they choose a Wikipedia article in
another language.

Of particular interest are the commonalities like other awards, their alma
mater, where they are employed. When people who are in the public eye are
known for other awards as well, we find that these connections are
important and make people find the associated people and places of interest
as well.
Thanks,
      Gerard

You are right Tom, WMSE made several such videos, I guess the one you are
thinking of is this one:

Will the winners be present at the announcement?

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Nobel Peace Prize announcement and editathon

Jon Harald Søby
No, this is just the announcement; the award ceremony itself will be held
on December 10 as usual. As much as I like the idea, I think that is
probably the worst time to try to make something like that happen, seeing
as we'd be competing with every major news agency in the world...

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Nobel Peace Prize announcement and editathon

Liam Wyatt
This is an excellent event idea, congratulations to Wikimedia Norway for
organising it.
It is also a brilliant example of how Chapters and other groups around the
world can take responsability for topics that have particular
local relevance to them, and take a leadership role in the worldwide
movement in the process. In this case (an announcement of global interest,
but made in a particular building in a particular city) it also highlights
wikimedia as not just a virtual community, but a physical one, and that the
two work in tandem.

Today there was the announcement for the Nobel prize in literature. Quit
interesting is that the Swedish Radio, Swedish Television and the Norwegian
NRK are updating articles related to this. Not perfect, but with a
obviously good ambition!

I do agree. In Amical we regularly organize small one-week long online
writing contest regarding local Music Festivals, ComicCons or similar. We
get in touch with new organisations, reach to new communities and get quite
a lot of press atention with relatively small organizing effort and one
small prize.

Hi Jon, thank you so much for your efforts in having Malala and Kailash
Satyarthi's pages updated. I was over the moon to see the announcements
this morning and really proud of the Norwegian Wikipedia community for
updating the pages today! I for one would love to hear about everyone's
experience being there.

(I'd also love to hear anyone's experiences about edit conflicts while
updating the pages).

I'm not sure when you were notified of the invitation, but do know that the
Foundation wants to find ways of supporting community activities like this,
so if there are any ideas on how to do that please say so.

Cheers,
Rachel

Everton Zanella Alvarenga-5
Hi Rachel,

I'd like to suggest someone in change of WMF communication to write a blog
post about this great initiative from Norwegian volunteers. Talk to those
taking the lead. :)

Such initiative should be highlighted very much, mainly after to see those
great Nobel Prizes (different from some years ago).

Hopefully I'll try to find some time next October 12, Children's Day in
Brazil, to contribute with Malala's article in the Portuguese Wikipedia.
I'm trying to spread the word among Open Knowledge Brasil community because
we were thinking to do some thing for children and teachers aligned with
our mission.

Cheers,

Tom

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Nobel Peace Prize announcement and editathon

Katherine Maher
There is a short blog post about the event that went up yesterday, thanks
to the speedy turnaround of Astrid and Jon! We reached out to them right
after seeing this announcement, and they provided a quick background just a
few hours later.

http://blog.wikimedia.org/2014/10/09/wikinobel/

I agree that it would be wonderful to have another post with more details
about how this all came to together, the event itself, and what the
organizers felt were the best learning and outcomes of this new
collaboration.

You might be pleasantly surprised at the positive reaction you'd get; see:
