As the Wikimedia Foundation grows, so does our need to communicate with the rest of the community. Our blogs are a major communication channel to share news and accomplishments of our staff and volunteers.
Recently, we’ve started to publish more often, to increase transparency, understanding and collaboration. These new dedicated blogs are a way for us to structure the conversation with our community, much like we did in the past with the Tech blog.
The Techblog, which was living separately, is now fully integrated with the Wikimedia blog; from now on, our readers will be able to find all our news in one central place.
If you’re only interested in a specific topic, you can still subscribe to the dedicated RSS feed available at the top of each blog, or in your browser’s URL field. You can subscribe to the “Main blog/Highlights” section to be notified only of major news.
