[Wikimedia-l] Watch your vote in board elections!

2013-06-08 Thread Jan Kučera
Hi everybody,

today, board elections have begun. Please think twice on who you vote,
because past boards did not bring a lot of innovation (if any???) into
Wikimedia... and who else should bring innovation than the top governing
entity? Wikimedia suffers from declining editorship... on which the overall
quality depends.

Vote for better Wikipedia quality with a better board!

Good luck in the elections!

Regards,
Jan Kucera (Kozuch)

Dear Milos,

No! But understand. Also now understand why you withdrew your Board
candidacy.

Thank you for writing so honestly. It touched a chord in me (having gone
through similar cycles in other worlds).

One of my earliest memories of the wikimedia movement is having a smoky
chat with you in wikimania Gdansk about everything from the politics of
language to the films of Emir Kusturica. You made me feel at home. :)

I hope our paths will continue to cross.

Best
Bishakha

 Thanks for everything, Milos. It's been a pleasure and I won't be at
 all surprised to run into you again, if not in Wikimedia then in other
 free culture circles. There are lots of unfinished projects indeed --
 for me, seeing the movement tackle increasingly hard and complex
 challenges successfully has been hugely motivating. I hope that if no
 sooner, in a few years you'll check in on where things are and find
 things so transformatively different to be re-energized to participate

 Wikimedia movement isn't staying well with formal diplomacy. No of the
 Wikimedia organizations participated even in the global events close
 to Wikimedia's interests, like, for example, Internet Governance Forum
 is.

I can at least say that Wikimedia CH and Wikimedia Österreich (Austria)
are member of ICANN At-Large and as such will be present at the EuroDIG

Hi Milos,

thank you is the least we can say at this point. We can be happy to be
such a big movement, with so many people like you who further our vision
and goals. Some fluctuation is natural and it is totally natural that
after serving some time in our community to move on to new and other
priorities in live. You have already done much more than most of those
benefiting from your work and in fact ten years are a great part of your
life-time.
Thank you, all the best for your future and I am convinced that one
always meets twice in live...
Even if you leave you know where and who we are. You are always welcome
back, be it only a request for help or collaboration in any other
project of your future.

2013-06-08 Thread Milos Rancic
Thanks to all of you! It really matters to know that I will be welcome if I
back and it matters that people who matters to me think that I made an
impact to them and to the movement.

I was unprepared on Amir's mail and I reacted on it emotionally. After that
I realized which kind of emails I could get :)

While reading your emails, I got once more drive to stay. However, that
didn't solve my motivation problem and there is no sense to stay without it
solved.

I am not going to find another movement. When you felt the best one,
everything else doesn't have a lot of sense. Besides that, I would have the
same kind of lack of motivation, or probably worse one.

The problem with my motivation is exclusively my personal issue. Events in
the movement influenced that, but the main portion is related to my inner
issues and I am now quite confident what the reason is, which corresponds
with the second part of 2011.

There is another thing produced by your answers. Since this morning I am
able to imagine myself back, which I wasn't able for months. I feel freed
and able to think that I need a period of time off to be capable to back.

I was thinking yesterday that I need serious reconsideration of my inner
drives, that I need different life to fix my problems. Now I think that I
even have the cure. So, will be back sooner than I was thinking. I suppose
that it will be about months rather than years. (And I feel now a bit as a
drama queen and attention whore, as nobody would notice even a half of year
without my input.)

I am professionally connected to MediaWiki. Thus, I won't be able to
disappear, even it was about my feelings from yesterday. I am reading news
on Portal:Current events and I am occasionally editing English Wikipedia.

I noted Sara's and Manuel's emails about what they are doing. Please,
connect with others who are doing similar things! Partial efforts are
always much less effective. (Sarah, connect with MF-Warburg, he will
continue my work in relation to mapping languages. Manuel, connect with
Sanja from WM RS.)

I am subscribed to so many public Wikimedia lists, that it would require
considerable effort to unsubscribe from all of them. Fortunatelly, I am
using a separate account for those lists. I will not delete but forget it
for the time I will need to remotivate myself.

And to repeat: I will always be happy to help to any of you. Feel free to
contact me.

This response seems to miss the fact that, in this particular case,

  How does it impact people? Short answer: it shouldn't. Long answer: It
 may
  make the site slightly slower due to increased network latency, and it is
  slightly more computationally expensive, which may make the site slower
 on
  computers that are underpowered.
 
  How does it impact the WMF? It depends. For enabling it for logged-in
  users, or for those that use HTTPS-anywhere? It doesn't affect us,
 because
  that's the state we're in right now. For making HTTPS the default for
  anonymous users? We need to change how our infrastructure works. We may
  need to buy additional hardware. We definitely need to do some
 engineering
  work.
 
  How does it impact the government's ability to apply censorship? Short
  answer: it doesn't. It affects their ability to eavesdrop on people. Long
  answer: It depends on how sophisticated the government's censorship
 program
  is. In some countries the government's censorship program can be totally
  bypassed using HTTPS. China's program is very sophisticated. The best
 HTTPS
  is going to help the Chinese is to give them a reasonable amount of
  protection against eavesdropping. It's still possible for China to
  eavesdrop, even when users are using HTTPS, if China has subverted any of
  the Certificate Authorities trusted by our browsers.
 
  Are there negative sides of each choice? Yes. Not providing HTTPS means
  that users will always be subject to eavesdropping, which in very
  authoritative countries could mean they are imprisoned or killed for
  reading or editing Wikipedia, depending on what they are reading or
  editing. Realistically not making HTTPS the default is similar to not
  providing it for all intents and purposes. Search engines will bring
 people
  to the HTTP version of the site, not the HTTPS version so the vast
 majority
  of users will still be able to be eavesdropped on. Making HTTPS the
 default
  also has negatives. A very small minority of users don't have HTTPS
  support, or their computers are so old that it makes the site unusably
  slow. That's a *very* small percentage of users, though. Additionally, it
  makes the site slower for everyone, which may cause a decrease in viewers
  and/or editors.
 
  This is likely the most non-technical way I can explain things. I hope it
  helps!

  Great. That's really fast response.
 
  On the issue itself, we haven't seen any large scale blocks for years
  (around the time since last time Jimbo visited some Chinese official more
  than 4 or 5 years ago I think).
 
  The secure.wikimedia domain was blocked long ago, but they waited till
 now
  to block HTTPS, after 3 years? (I can't remember when it was enabled). I
  wonder how long it took for them to realise.
 
  It is suggested that this could be a long term block similar to how
  secure.wikimedia was blocked - for HTTPS they have no control over
 content,
  so they are simply blocking it all. For HTTP they are still performing
 deep
  package inspection (means content censoring), so since they can filter
 what
  the Chinese people can see, it's likely that they'll leave HTTP alone.

 This is the content of our response:

 The Wikimedia Foundation doesn’t hold any readers of our projects in any
 less regard than others. Our mission is to bring the knowledge contained in
 the Wikimedia projects to everyone on the planet. There is no strategic
 consideration around how we can make one or another language project more
 accessible or readable in one part of the world or another. We do not have
 control over how a national government operates its censorship system. We
 also do not work with any national censorship system to limit access to
 project knowledge in any way.

 It is worth noting the blog post makes some incorrect assumptions about
 Wikimedia culture - including incorrect titling of some Wikimedia
 Foundation staff (e.g. Sue Gardner is the Executive Director of the
 Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit that operates Wikipedia -- Wikipedia
 is written by tens of thousands of volunteers and has no director and no
 hierarchy of editors). There is also an incorrect assertion that Jimmy
 Wales has a direct role in working with our staff in making changes to core
 infrastructure. Of course Jimmy plays a role in the conversation, but he is
 participating in the conversation along with anyone else from the volunteer
 editor community.

 On the larger topic, the implementation of HTTPS by default across all
 Wikimedia sites for all readers and users is non-trivial, and a
 conversation is ongoing within the Wikimedia Foundation and within the
 community about how we might make this possible. We do have plans to
 eventually enable HTTPS as the default, but it's difficult and we're taking
 steps toward this goal over time.

 Our first step is to force HTTPS for logged-in users. The next step will be
 to expand our SSL cluster and to do some testing on a wiki-by-wiki basis
 with anonymous HTTPS. At some point later we'll attempt to enable HTTPS for
 anons on all projects. Then we'll look at enabling HSTS, so that browsers
 know they should always use HTTPS to access our sites.


 We've only had proper native HTTPS for about a year and a half. We
 attempted to force HTTPS by default for logged-in users last month and
 rolled it back. We'll be attempting this again soon. So, it's something
 we're actively working on. We've also hard-enabled HTTPS on all of our
 private wikis and have soft-enabled HTTPS on a single wiki (Uzbek
 Wikipedia), when it was requested by the volunteer editor community there.



Great response, which makes it clear that there is no politically biased
motives here, just techinical issues. I hope they will be publishing it in
some sort of decent form, though unfortunately the damage is generally
never restored, it might go a long way.

On a tiny side note: Is calling non logged in users on official
communications a good idea? I've always found it to be sounding quite
denigrating.

 What is this hard-enabled and soft-enabled?

I hope someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but...

I believe that soft-enabled means that https was set as the protocol
in the canonical URLs for uzwiki. So search engines should start
linking to the https URLs, and non-relative links generated by
MediaWiki on WMF wikis would link to https rather than http. And,
eventually, the links that people post to other places would start to
be more often https too. But a visitor may still go to the http URL if
they want to.

Bug 43466[1] seems relevant, and links to other discussion.

Hard-enabled, on the other hand, means that anyone fetching the http
URL would be redirected to the corresponding https URL.[2] If this
were somehow done now, then people in China would not be able to read
Wikipedia at all because the http links would just redirect to https
and then China's firewall would block the https request. The blog post
mentioned earlier in this thread hopes that that would make China back
down and unblock https to Wikipedia.

 How would transcoding the stoplist stop censorship?

The paper Leslie linked to indicates that the Great Firewall operates
through automated packet inspection, but its stoplist is regularly exposed
in peer-to-peer applications such as TOM-Skype. We could replace its
stoplist words with alternate encodings which do not match textually.
There are an infinite number of ways to do this, from insertion of span
tags, to graphical image replacement, to use of javascript which evaluates
to the stoplist words, or any other of a literally countably infinite
number of steganographic techniques. Most people simply capitulate to the
Great Firewall. Shouldn't we be setting the example for others of showing
how it's easily defeated?

 Who are we asking what?

On these any other topics involving activism, we should be asking the
community for solutions and discussing them, but the centralization of the
WMF is drifting further away from that. For example, the annual plan has
apparently been drafted without any community review before going to the
Board this year. Last year we had regular fundraising testing updates about
once per werk, but we've only had one so far this year. Who approved the
tighter restrictions on who can vote in Board elections this year? Nobody
has bothered to ask donors whether they would prefer to pay staff market
pay rates instead of following the ”peer group” practice of huge raises for
the top and uncompetitive salaries for new hires, based on an
interpretation of Dan Pink's work which he and the secondary literature
both firmly reject.

Perhaps the elections and ED replacement will provide leadership who care
more about the evidence than suffering through having to admit that they've
been misguided.

 All centralized authorities engage in misguided attempts to impose content
 restrictions on what they percieve as threatening. Asking others for their
 opinions on how to counteract these mistakes is an integral part of
 building reference material in general, not just encyclopedias.

 I see no better solution than to institute such requests.
