An independent internal news bulletin
for the members of the Wikimedia community

http://wikizine.blogspot.com

Wikizine is a (nearly) weekly news letter. It attempts to bring the most important news from the global Wikimedia family for everybody involved with Wikimedia.
The concept of Wikizine:
  • Wikizine is short so it does not take long to read it
  • If possible every topic is only a very brief summary with the URLs to more information about it
  • Technical news is considered the most important news
  • News is mostly only included if it is relevant or interesting for the larger Wikimedia community and not only for a specific wiki
  • The target audience are sysops and higher, ambassadors, board members of the chapters
  • It is written in English but it is for readers from many languages
  • It is hoped that the readers will spread the news that is relevant for their home-wiki to their local community and that they report news back upstream so it can be shared with the rest of the Wikimedia community
  • It is POV. The POV of the editor-in-chief
  • Wikizine is small in the number of staff members and readers
  • Wikizine will never ever knowingly report lies
  • Wikizine makes no guarantee of validity
  • Wikizine considers itself an independent publication
  • Wikizine is not a publication of the Wikimedia Foundation
  • Wikizine is ugly and proud of it. Plain text only, distribution by email
  • Wikizine is available under the GNU Free Documentation License
