Talk:Submissions/Wikimedia:The cost of failure and why talking about it matters

From Wikimania 2012 • Washington, D.C., USA

Interesting proposal. Could each planned speaker offer one or two examples of the unsuccessful projects they would offer to talk about? Ijon (talk) 21:17, 7 March 2012 (UTC)[reply]

Abbas Mahmood has asked me, on email, if I would present some of my research about failure in what we might call proto-Wikipedias which I am thrilled to do as part of this session. Toward that end, I wanted to suggest merging my proposal to give a standalone talk on the subject over at Submissions/Almost Wikipedia into this one proposal. —mako 21:27, 18 March 2012 (UTC)[reply]
