  1. Sorry guys, I have a prior obligation for an opening of a Sami film in Minneapolis. Would love to hear what happens - take care... Dinkytown talk 13:46, 20 November 2010 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Have fun at this everyone. Sorry I can't come. The MNHS were kind enough to fly me up to visit them yesterday and talk about GLAM-Wikimedia relations in general and how that might look in their situation which was really interesting to talk with them. Of course, hosting a meetup is the best possible way to start that relationship so I look forward to seeing what you can do together. As a first example, have a look at some of these articles that could be transported to Wikipedia if they would dual-license as CC-by-SA and not only GFDL. Keep in touch!

That's great you were able to sit down with them --hopefully our collaboration will work into something as amazing as the work you and your colleagues did with the British Museum. --Bobak (talk) 18:06, 18 November 2010 (UTC)
