Free Culture Space
  • The Free Culture Space at Wikimania 2007 will be a remix of multiple open culture essences. The Free Culture Space consists of 3 parts: the Wikimania Lounge, Posters and Exhibitions. There will be topics ranging from open source to open content, both practically and theoretically, in the form of recording tools for capturing audio and video (interviews and art and more), Demos of open platforms and projects, BOFs and lightning talks around related topics, hands-on training in using tools (writing code, making podcasts, developing for OLPCs etc..), a digital artworks exhibition. We would like to invite all participants and groups working on art, music, articles, textbooks, and programming to join, share, learn and enjoy
    • Submissions for lightning talks, particularly focussed on the Wikimedia projects, their challenges, current status and plans, are still welcomed, please put your ideas at lightning talks.
    • There will also be opportunity for informal birds of a feather discussions to be organized on site; sign-up sheets and materials will be provided. Please put your ideas at BOFs.
