Wikimedia Projects and the free software and open content movements

May 1-3, 2007, Białowieża (Poland)

Change the world![edytuj | edytuj kod]

A lone dreamer can do nothing but dream. Thousands can change the world.

We invite all parties interested in the various aspects of developing and maintaining communities centered around projects developing free knowledge, art, literature and software. Aside from people directly involved with said projects, outside specialits are also very welcome, since their analisis can contribute to the developments of the project communities.

The Wikimedia Projects, based on the MediaWiki software, are probably the largest community of volounteers on the Internet. That is why we wish to share our experience, as well as learn from others.

The goals of the conference[edytuj | edytuj kod]

The goal of this conference is to create a platform for the interchange of experience between participants of Wikimedia projects, participants of other similar communities and third parties.

Apart from that the event will be an occasion to integrate the Wikimedia project community and the people connected with open source and open content movements in general.
