Kaltura, who Wikimedia has been working with over the last few months on the exploration of open-source, collaborative video editing on Wikimedia projects, have developed a Wikimania video wiki leading up to this year’s conference in Alexandria. Kaltura is also a generous benefactor of Wikimania this year, providing financial support to make the event possible.
They’re inviting project volunteers and enthusiasts (whether attending or not) to try their hand at collaborative video uploading/editing/improving. Share your video from your travel to Egypt – or if you can’t make it, why not edit in your comments or questions for participants?
Invitation from Lisa Bennet, Director of Public Relations and Marketing, Kaltura
As Wikimania is right around the corner, we’ve added a new great way to share information about the event. I would like to invite you to the Wikimania Video Site where you can create collaborative videos. The site already has some videos where people can add their expectations for the event or share why they can’t join us this year, and there will be computer stations at Wikimania for attendees to add videos and pictures in real-time from Alexandria. Hopefully, it will be a great resource for people that could not be there in person to see the highlights, and for the attendees to document the event.

The site is hosted on the Kaltura devwiki and uses the collaborative video technology from Kaltura, which the Foundation partnered with late last year to explore adding videos to Wikipedia and other projects.
You’re invited to share your experiences from Wikimania, play with the technology, and provide your feedback.
