Re: [Wikimedia-l] [VereinAT-l] On now: European Dialog on Internet Governance

2013-06-22 Thread Manuel Schneider
Thanks Bishakha for sharing this, I wasn't aware of this.

I am thinking about it since quite a while and I guess the community
here could help me to get an opinion on it:
Wouldn't it be sensible for Wikimedia Chapters to become members of
their local ISOC chapters?
ISOC has chapters in many countries and a similar structure like
Wikimedia, with geographical chapter organisation (well, there is ISOC
Belgium + ISOC Wallonia...) and I think the ISOC would be a good entry
into engaging in internet governance.

Are there any chapters which are ISOC members? I only heard once about
WMIL cooperating with ISOC IL so far.

 The GCHQ mass tapping operation has been built up over five years by

 This was done under secret agreements with commercial companies,

It is related. There was a question as to whether edits and other
activity on Wikipedia were being swept up. Obviously they are. Whether
activities of interest to intelligence agencies are logged or ever used
or how is another matter.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Tapping into the Backbone

2013-06-22 Thread Fred Bauder
In our earlier discussion about PRISM. Whether the intelligence agencies
could, if they felt it within their remit, access edits and other
actions, and, of course, passwords. Obviously they can easily if they are
not encrypted. Common sense, on the other hand will inform you that
nothing we do would be of interest to an intelligence agencies focused on
actual threats.

[Wikimedia-l] What community initiatives have made an impact on editor engagement?

2013-06-22 Thread Steven Walling
Hi everyone,

On July 11th at the next WMF Metrics  Activities meeting, myself, Erik
Möller, Howie Fung, Maryana Pinchuk, and Dario Taraborelli are going to
deliver a short update on the state of Wikimedia editor communities. (For
those not familiar:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Metrics_and_activities_meetings)

This is the beginning of the new fiscal year for the WMF, and we'd like to
use this time to recap what we know about the decline or growth of
Wikimedia communities. We're focusing on the following set of questions...

* Are Wikimedia projects as a whole in decline?
* Is English Wikipedia in decline?
* Which WMF projects have been successful in driving growth?
* Which non-WMF trends have driven growth (e.g. community projects)?
* How does data/measurement enable us to drive growth?
* Which future changes are expected to drive growth?

I'm reaching out to this list on behalf of the team, so that we can get a
list of the non-WMF projects that have had a measurable impact on the size
or diversity of Wikimedia projects.

One obvious example that comes to mind is Wiki Loves Monuments. Others are
the Wikipedia Challenge in Kiswahili and Setswana, and edit-a-thons, such
as this year's fashion edit-a-thon put together by Wikimedia Sverige.

What am I missing from this list?
