Attended & co-organised de.GLAMwiki 2013 workshop in Kaufbeuren,Germany last weekend. The workshop was addressed at German speaking Wikipedians interested or experienced in GLAM. We talked about our scope, different cooperation models, technical requirements, metadata,  upcoming events, licences, paid editing and much more.  Here's our German project page: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:GLAM/de.GLAMwiki_2013

Die sprachliche Säuberung von Kinderbüchern wie "Pippi Langstrumpf" war ein Thema dieser Woche. Eigentlich war schon alles gesagt. Dachten auch wir. Aber da hatten wir den Kommentar von Burkard Müller-Ullrich noch nicht gehört. Er beschreibt - Zitat - "eine sich immer weiter ausbreitende Sprachpest der Political Correctness, die sich in selbstgerechten Abmahnwellen äußert, weil es nichts Schöneres gibt, als anderen über den Mund zu fahren." Wenn Sie sein Argument im Ganzen interessiert, bitte einmal auf den Link klicken!

The nice folks of the +Open Knowledge Foundation have written an article about the upcoming #publicdomain  day 2013. 
Have a look in https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:1942_deaths on #WikiCommons  and check if your GLAM partner features any content!

If you're looking to keep your kids entertained, use Google Images to find coloring pages. Say that your child is going through a phase where he or she is obsessed with dinosaurs, specifically T-Rex. On Google Images, search for [t rex] and under Search tools, filter for Line drawing. Your search results will update to only show black and white drawings of T-Rex. Alternatively, black and white image results generally show when you add [coloring pages] to your query, such as [t rex coloring pages]. Click View original image, then print from your browser and let the coloring begin!

Did you know that you can use a Custom Search Engine on your website in just a few minutes?  A Custom Search Engine is a search box for your website that prioritizes or restricts search results based on websites and pages you specify. It contains several automatic built-in features such as autocomplete typing, result sorting and thumbnail previews. You can also apply your website's look and feel to the search engine, and the search engine is mobile-friendly so your visitors have comparable experiences on your site across devices. After specifying what pages you want to include in your index, Google generates a piece of code for your website. To create your own Custom Search Engine, head to www.google.com/cse to get started.

Just noticed this smart categorisation system from the nice folks of #Zooniverse  A system that would make #WikiCommons  easy and userfriendly.
