My InputEdit

I participated in several capacities

Participant ConnectionsEdit

I actually already met at least once with many of the participants. So overall, it was more a re-connexion than a connexion. However, I particularly would note a better understanding and/or more collaboration with

I also met for the first time


  • Stephane and Alangi and I held a tech meeting to see how best move forward on the development of m:WikiFundi this year
  • Bachounda finally got his much awaited swag !
  • Got support from Zach for WikiFundi. We shot WikiFundi first steps videos with Erina (English), Georges (French), Sami (Arabic), and Afek (dialect). I collected the videos. Now need to work on them... that was a totally unplanned outcome and I am hugely happy I came up with the idea and got it implemented within 24 hours :)
  • Learned much about animated gifs as well...
  • pushed for the return of the African Hour (hangout meeting) and when Jack Rabah announced its rebirth, accepted to join the African Hour committee
  • provided one WikiFundi to Rossouw (no shipping hassle)
  • Celebrated the end of Wiki Loves Africa contest with winners (belatedly... can share that this is a bad idea to do such announcement during a public event as we can not at the same time deal with the online news ;))
  • Celebrated the outcome of the WikiChallenge and discussed next steps
  • Walked over 10k steps everyday (climbing Sidi Bou Said on Monday with Kacie and Zack was a highlight)
