[Infothought] Wikimedia Foundation vs Wikipedia Art (wikipediaart.org): I still support the goals of the Wikipedia project, despite mypersonal disappointment in how they have been handling matters. Ifind it distressing that their commitment to an open encyclopedia isin stark contrast with their effort to effectively shut down what isclearly an artistic project that asks us to reflect on the Wikipediasystem of knowledge production.
[Planet OpenStreetMap.org] OpenStreetMap at the 2009 Wikimedia developer meet-up: Initially it looks like we'll be setting this up on servers Wikimedia Deutschland will be donating for the project, once the process is proven there it can be moved to the main Wikimedia sites. We might also be setting up a new mailing list specifically to coordinate this Wikimedia/OSM integration, but maybe we'll use an existing one instead.
[Isotype] Wikipedia joins OpenStreetMap: Well also set up a map toolserver for experimenting with other uses of OpenStreetMap data on Wikimedia. People with relevant projects can get access to this toolserver to try out their ideas for tools that could eventually be integrated on the main Wikimedia sites.

Great news for web developers, who’ve been waiting for this for a very long time.But there’s nothing from the robots mailing list or the RobotsTxt.org which is a shame.This is also a test for all site and intranet search crawlers —

[Citizendium Blog] An open letter to Jimmy Wales (copy): at least in public perception, what is contained in archives is frequently not what matters. I remember not long ago toying with the idea that the instant availability of the historical record, forever cataloged and searchable online, would make misinformation and disinformation about the past much harder.
[Infothought] Larry Sanger: "An open letter to Jimmy Wales": "Together with Larry Sanger and others, Wales helped lay the foundation for Wikipedia, a free, open-content encyclopedia launched in 2001, which subsequently enjoyed rapid growth and popularity. As Wikipedia's public profile grew, Wales became the project's promoter and spokesman. Wales has been historically cited as the co-founder of Wikipedia but he disputes the "co-" designation, asserting that he is the sole founder of Wikipedia."
[MakerLab Blog] Makerlab: http://www.wikimedia.org. Wikimedia Foundation. The first time I saw Wikimedia I cried. Literally. I ran over to Anselm and I was like, ”I know what I want to do with the rest of my life! I want to do THIS. I want to work for Wikimedia ...
