Just looking through the public exhibition space takes a full day. Add access to the Ultimo storage areas and post-event editing and we can't hope to cover more than a small part of the museum in one day. Is this an all-day event or part of a day or what? Are ph<sup>m</sup> supplying a photographer to take publicity photos for themselves or to take photos requested by us for Wikipedia? In the latter case, we won't need a photographer but will need access to the photos. A list of specific artifacts that they would like articles on would be useful. (Note that [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powerhouse_Museum#Key_attractions the key attractions] paragraph doesn't actually include any links to ph<sup>m</sup> artifacts and there doesn't seem to be any list of articles on ph<sup>m</sup> artifacts in wikipedia). As for the editing, it's not really practical for more than one person to edit a single article at once. This implies that cleanup/expansion of existing articles would comes down to one person typing, possibly with additional people suggesting text. Obviously, new articles can be written in parallel (as long as there's some co-ordination to ensure that no more than one person is independently writing each page). If someone has 3G and a laptop, we could edit as we go (making notes as we go sounds a good idea in any case). --[[User:PeterJeremy|PeterJeremy]] 10:45, 14 January 2009 (UTC) :I'll take your questions in order: : Yes, there's a lot to cover and not much time! We'll see how we go... we'll most likely be splitting into groups to follow the curator whos interests correspond with your own. Timing issues will have to be discussed closer to the day. :Their photographer will be taking shots for us. Presumably the odd photo ''of'' us too, but primarily ''for'' us. :Yes, we will hopefully have their "wishlist" beforehand for some of their preferred articles/key attractions. :The practicalities of editing as a group in person have not been tested before, so it'll be interesting to see how it works. We'll most likely take a range of strategies like offline collaboration on a new article; working each on our own/pairs on articles; talking with curators etc. Very much a trial run... :We could possibly edit as we go, and perhaps record the tour on video/audio. But I think that, since we will have access to the curators in the editing session too, we will not have to madly write down as much as we can during the tour (thereby missing out on the actual experience). [[User:Witty lama|Witty lama]] 13:30, 14 January 2009 (UTC) ::small point - editing 'live' with groups of people has been tried a few times, I think - [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikivoices/Episode_34 here's] an example from the 'not the wikipedia weekly' podcast (I missed that one though!) - I suspect that it's tricky, but where there's a will there's a way, and though it's certainly a different dynamic, it is possible to get stuff done. [[User:Privatemusings|Privatemusings]] 01:25, 15 January 2009 (UTC) == March 6th == we're locked in now? :-) [[User:Privatemusings|Privatemusings]] 10:46, 7 February 2009 (UTC) :actually - it's now the 13th. But that's now final. [[User:Witty lama|Witty lama]] 09:21, 9 February 2009 (UTC) Return to Talk:Backstage pass. Retrieved from "https://wikimedia.org.au/wiki/Talk:Backstage_pass"
