Why the morning, in particular? The Land 22:29, 29 January 2012 (UTC)
So we know a bit about what WMUK has been doing before the AGM --Filceolaire 23:47, 29 January 2012 (UTC)

This is my brain dump - it would look much more impressive if you added to it? If you pass by then can you make one small change so we know you have seen it? Victuallers 11:04, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

Someone from the UK GLAM task force could lead a "State of GLAM in the UK" presentation/session. Then people could get up and talk about their individual GLAM projects. (See the State of the GLAM: DC presentation at Wikimania 2011.) Regards, Rock drum (talkcontribs) 11:24, 16 February 2012 (UTC)
Sounds good, it's the most visible project. If the BL WIR is in place by then, it would be nice to give them a slot of a few minutes. -- 12:44, 16 February 2012 (UTC)
Happy to talk about microformats (a kind of metadata) - for how long? Andy Mabbett (User:Pigsonthewing); Andy's talk; Andy's edits 18:22, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Support the Conference

It would be very useful if we could get a couple of volunteers supporting the delivery of the event on the 12 May. In particular, I am looking for:

  • a photographer who would be happy to document the AGM, and also take individual photos of the Trustees and Wikimedia UK staff
  • somebody happy to help at the registration desk/cloakroom
