Third issue of Wikimedia Quarto is releasedEdit

By Anthere (Florence Devouard), 26 June 2005

The third issue of the Wikimedia Quarto, covering beginning of 2005, was released this week end, June 26.

The Wikimedia Quarto was begun in September 2004 as the official newsletter of the Wikimedia Foundation. The Quarto's goal is to distribute regular updates about the Foundation's activities as widely as possible, and to provide a forum for Jimmy Wales, the Board, and the projects to report on important events.

The first goal of the Quarto is to publish quarterly in 10 languages, and to include original content related to Wikimedia from project members, essayists, and great thinkers in related fields. The intended audience includes contributors to Wikimedia projects and people interested in Wikimedia Foundation activities.

To add

  • some references about content
  • it is not yet translated, call for help
  • improvement in editing process
  • focus expected in the editing process
  • Progress with regards to design and publishing (in particular pdf and email distribution)


For more information on the newsletter, see m:Wikimedia Quarto. All editors are invited to help build the forthcoming issue, which should focus a lot on Wikimania and should provide insights on how Wikipedia could spread in the developing world.
