WIKIMOVE Ep#3: UNLOCKing innovation – now available on Spotify, Soundcloud, Stitcher & more

We are excited to be dropping the 3rd episode of WIKIMOVE, our podcast on everything Wikimedia Movement Strategy. In this episode we talk about innovation and explore the opportunities created by the UNLOCK accelerator within our movement and beyond. 

Good news!

The video version of our show is also available on Youtube with english subtitles. 

What’s in this episode? 

We are looking back at years of complaints about how Wikimedia technology is outdated and exclusive. Non-encyclopedic forms of knowledge are still impossible or hard to insert into our existing formats. The last big innovation from our movement is Wikidata, which is now almost ten years old. Movement Strategy calls on us to innovate our technical and social systems so that new and marginalized communities can join and share their knowledge. We talk about the UNLOCK accelerator program, how it is being implemented in collaboration with WMS and WMDE this year, and explore how the movement can become more of an innovation ecosystem.

Our guests are…

Kannika Thaimai, Program lead of the UNLOCK accelerator at Wikimedia Deutschland

Ivana Madžarević, Program and Community Support Manager at Wikimedia Serbia
