Wikimedia Conference 2017: The Future of Free Knowledge


Mark Fonseca Rendeiro
Recorded live at Wikimedia Conference 2017 - Berlin Host Juliet Barbara Guest Shani Evenstein Guest Cornelius Kibelka Guest Andrew Lih Guest Adele Vrana Guest Sarmad Said Yaseen Guest A few weeks ago, as spring made itself felt in Berlin, I had the privilege of attending a gathering of dedicated individuals from around the world, who came together for one over arching purpose  beyond the many specific projects they are busy with — the future of Free Knowledge.. and with that.. a path forward for the global movement known as Wikimedia. Image by Oxana Baerbach CC-BY-SA 4.0 The event is entitled, the Wikimedia Conference 2017 and today you’re going to hear the big questions and ideas that were taken on and mulled over with the needs and realities of future generations in mind. In a time when so many might feel very cynical about the world and cooperation across borders & cultures, we’re going to hear about a future filled with not only possibility, but also progress. Today on the program, experience a spirit of dedication and possibility at the Wikimedia Conference 2017.
