[jox] Amsterdam Wiki conference / New SC member

[Converted from multipart/alternative]

Hi all

Just a quick note about Geert Lovink's "critical POV" conference about Wikipedia which took place on Friday and Saturday. Athina presented a talk and so did I, StefanMn came and (briefly) Michel Bauwens. On Saturday evening I was a bit boring and declined George D's invitation to go to Leiden to a squatter festival (sorry George!), where peer production is probably more embodied. Instead I went walking around some of the magical canals of Amsterdam with some other conference people.

I told Geert we were interested in finding out what they hoped to achieve through these conferences: maybe there could be a "conference account" section in the journal, I will post a message to their conference list (cpov). There were many interesting people present, including people from India, so it was quite stimulating. Some contacts were established, I will post more if there are any concrete outcomes. 

For me a highlight was listening to Mayo Fuster Morell's presentation on the role of the Wikimedia foundation in WP governance as she is working along parallel lines to my interest in "organisation without domination". I would really like to publish some of her work. Mayo has also been heavily involved in the global justice movement and is very well connected to lots of interesting networks so she seemed like a very good fit for our SC; in a rare occurence of on-the-spot maintainer authority I invited her to become a member and she agreed to join. 
So we welcome a new SC member (see
