#Hackaton for ten years of #GLAM and #Wikipedia cooperation

On the eve of celebrating 10 years of Wikipedia, we prepare for the next decenium hacking on the technology that will make the cooperation with GLAMs that much easier and sophisticated.

The group of people we have brought together consists of some of the MediaWiki greats but there are also people from cultural heritage organisations. Face time is gold.

We flew RobertHL in from Great Britain to work on one project; enabling support for Europeana. Europeana is the European portal to what is already digitally available of what European museums, archives and libraries. What is truly awesome is that by translating at you enable other parts of the world to access what is a world class project.

This is only one of the things that are going on..
