A collection of resizable, editable information graphics I used in my Ph.D thesis to explain the various uses of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) for biology and healthcare.
Following the PR material cleanup, I am happy to announce the launch of the Wikimedia documents initiative, which aims at creating and maintaining a centralized set of standardized, up-to-date and localized core reference documents for public relations, marketing and public outreach.
Last year, I started to document myself about fundraising. Originally, I did it because I intended to use what I would learn to improve Wikimedia France’s management of fundraising. I eventually distanced myself from Wikimedia France for various reasons, but I figured I’d still share a few thoughts that may prove useful to all chapters. Although this article is mainly Wikimedia-focused, the general principles are universal.
Around 130 Wikimedians attended the Wikimedia Conference 2009 in Berlin last month; they were Wikimedia chapter representatives, Wikimedia Foundation board members and staff, and software developers.

I am glad to announce that the final full schedule of the Wikimedia conference 2009 in Berlin is now available. It contains all three tracks of the conference: chapters, WMF board & developers.
In an effort to consolidate PR materials about Wikipedia and Wikimedia, we’re starting an inventory of all known materials in all languages. You can help by adding items to the inventory, to make sure we don’t miss anything.
After much thought about various feedback from many people, I am happy to propose a revised version of the schedule for the chapters track of the April 2009 Wikimedia Conference in Berlin. I hope it addresses most of the concerns raised, while keeping the advantages.
I am glad to announce that my Ph.D thesis, entitled Technologies PNIPAM pour les laboratoires sur puce (“PNIPAM technologies for labs-on-chips”), is now available for download.
