Non-commercial tag

One annoyance of mine is how the non-commercial tag gets in the way of wholesale imports of material into wikimedia. For example, most of the MIT OCW is off-limits because of this.

Interview for Media Literacy video?

Dear panelists,

I'm wondering if any of you would be interested in doing a video interview with us about educational uses of Wikipedia. We're making a short educational documentary about Wikipedia for Project New Media Literacies, a MacArthur-funded research initiative at MIT's Comparative Media Studies program. This video will be part of a series available for free to jr high and high schoolers and their parents and teachers. The videos profile people who make various forms of media (we've done comicbook artist, graffiti artist, radio doc producer, and now Wikipedia). We use these videos as a springboard for media literacy curricula in which kids are asked to think critically about media they produce and consume. Wikipedia, we're hoping, will be a timely and exciting topic for kids.

We'd like to interview conference presenters and Wikipedia editors/contributors. Your presentation looks very interesting and I think your view points would be a good addition to our video. We'll be coming to Wikimania, but we'd really like to pre-schedule some interviews so we don't get lost in the excitement of the goings-on. Please let me know if you're interested (vanbertozzi(at) Hope to hear from you soon!...Vanessa Vanbertozzi 01:54, 1 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]

I am looking forward...

To seeing your presentations online. I enjoyed them immensly and would like to cite some statistics in a paper I am writing. PS. Developers: we need things shown by Andrea implemented in MediaWiki yesterday :) The references pop-up, Ref namespace, teachers priviliges - they are a 'must' for Wikiversity and likely for all other Wikimedia projects. --Piotrus 20:31, 5 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
