[Wikimedia-l] WMCON14 - Registration now open

2014-01-23 Thread Wenke Storn
Dear Wikimedians,

We are delighted to update you today regarding the upcoming Wikimedia
Conference[1], which will be held in Berlin on April 10-13, 2014. We,
Daniela and Wenke from WMDE's event team, look forward to making the
logistics as smoothly as possible for everyone involved and to supporting
you in the upcoming months.

Please find below important information regarding the registration
procedure, program, eligibility for participation as well as specifics in
regards to travel and hotel bookings.

==Registration now open! ==

Registration for the Wikimedia Conference 2014 is now open. Persons who are
selected by their organization to represent them at the conference need to
register via the registration form.[2]

The registration will close on Monday, February 17. For visa applicants we
strongly recommend to register until Monday, February 3, 2014 and to check
the amount of time needed for applications to Schengen states.

We will publish all participants’ names on the meta page shortly after
their registration in order to help affiliations check that only their
selected representatives have registered. Please make sure to check this
page regularly.[3]

==Program outline==

The program team has published an outline of the program[4], based on all
feedback and discussions from the previous weeks. The conference will cover
two main themes: '''Organization, structures and grants''' and '''Success
and impact'''. All invited entities are asked to select their
representatives carefully according to these themes. The program team
especially encourages people with an interest in movement structures,
strategies, impact as well as collaboration and partnership to participate.

The official program of the conference will start on Friday, April 11,
2014. Groups who would like to arrange separate or special meetings are
welcome to use the conference venue on Thursday[5] already. Please get in
touch with the event management team to make respective arrangements.

==Who is invited to attend?==

We are glad to be able to invite not only Chapters but embrace the chance
to welcome the two newer affiliation forms in Berlin, too. Chapters and
Thematic organizations who have been officially recognized by the Wikimedia
Foundation before January 15, 2014 are encouraged to send two
representatives. For those who have not budgeted for the conference in
their annual plan or project grants, there are scholarships available for
two persons each. Organizations who would like to send more than two
persons will have to book and pay for all their travel and accommodation
themselves.

User groups who have been officially recognized by the Wikimedia Foundation
before January 15, 2014 AND have shown public signs of activity in the
preceding six months by publishing a blog post, report or announcement or
requesting a grant are invited to send two representatives. These are:
Wikimedians of Nepal, Esperanto kaj Libera Scio (ELiSo), Wikimedia
Community User Group Greece, New England Wikimedians, Wikisource Community
User Group, Wikimedia Community User Group Brasil. For those who have not
budgeted for the conference in their annual plan or project grants, there
are scholarships available for two persons each.

We also hope that several members of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of
Trustees and staff, the Funds Dissemination Committee as well as the
Affiliations Committee will participate in the conference. We see a huge
advantage in having their representatives on site and encourage them to
take part in a range of talks and discussions.

==Travel and hotel booking==

If you are a representative of a Chapter, Thematic organization or User
group and WMCON14 funding is included in your annual/project plan, please
arrange your travel as well as hotel booking yourself.

If you are a representative of a Chapter, Thematic organization or User
group and WMCON14 funding is not included in your annual/project plan, WMF
will arrange your travel and WMDE will do the hotel booking for you.

If you belong to the FDC, AffCom, WMF Board or WMF Staff, travel and hotel
booking is done by WMF for you.

All these groups are requested to register! Which group you belong to will
be requested in the registration form and which further steps you need to
take will be explained in your personalized confirmation email.

We are grateful that the Wikimedia Foundation is covering the costs for the
logistics and travel of the Wikimedia Conference and is helping with travel
and hotel bookings this year. Thank you for supporting this important
event!

Wikimedia Deutschland is looking forward to welcoming you in Berlin in
April! Please do not hesitate to reach out to us any time via
wm...@wikimedia.de should you have any questions or comments.

Best regards,

Daniela  Wenke

Hi Andy,

I thought about that as well. Besides the intro text, the info box would be
the main attraction; but if infoboxes were to fall back on wikidata
information, which they could technically already do, all we'd have to do
is add a blank infobox, and it should automatically fill up with the
wikidata information. In light of that, writing code to fill an infobox
with values form wikidata to paste into the article seems ... low-tech ;-)

Cheers,
Magnus

Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Wikitech-l] Reasonator use in Wikipedias

2014-01-23 Thread Gerard Meijssen
Hoi,
Having Reasonator generated content in a draft namespace is *NOT* a bad
idea.

   - I do not know enough about the draft namespace.. Is there a way to
   discover that an article exists in Draft ??
   - My personal target for this functionality is very much the smaller
   projects. By using a draft environment I am afraid it becomes easily too
   complicated in these environments.
   - Red links, are they allowed to point to the draft namespace?
   - How about disambiguation because, Wikidata is very likely to create
   ambiguity ... then again, as there is an auto describe function, it is
   possible to add suffixes like actor politician etc..
   - Magnus indicated that providing information to templates is well
   possible. grin he calls it low tech /grin
  - So far we prefer to show a label in stead of  a Qnumber.
  - We would *REALLY* like to have a personal fall-back chain of
  languages based on #babel information..
  - There is no API to read #Babel yet
  - Obviously this has implications for caching..
  - HOWEVER as we share this content with Wikidata and all other
  projects, it can aggregate in one cache.. do not know if that is
good or bad

Thanks,
 GerardM

It is still far too early to do this. We still need to resolve a lot of
open questions around the Draft namespace. We don't advertise drafts on red
links or search yet, we haven't figured out how to deal with drafts for
articles that already exist, how to present a proper feed of drafts, and
lots more. Plus, it's only on English Wikipedia so you're not going to get
much bang for your buck working on implementing some kind of suggested
content via Wikidata.

We should put this idea in the list of future possible enhancements at

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1

Hi, everyone.

I'm thrilled to announce that as of last week, WMF's new Project and Event
Grants (PEG) Program Officer is Alex Wang.  She will be supporting the PEG
program's scaling up, and will enable us to offer our grantees a much
higher level of support in project management and frequent check-ins during
grant execution.

She brings great expertise in project management, event planning, and
grantmaking in the non-profit sector, including much experience in the
developing world.  Before joining Wikimedia, she worked with the
ClimateWorks Foundation and the Energy Foundation, in sustainable energy
projects in India, Europe, and China.  (She's fluent in Mandarin.)

When she wasn't setting up non-profits from scratch in India, she could be
found practicing and teaching yoga, installing solar panels in rural
maternity clinics in Nepal, and taking photos in precarious situations
(mostly while mountaineering and backcountry skiing)[1].

In 2003-2004, she could also be spotted riding a pony around Ulaanbaatar in
her quest to study the development of the Morin Khuur (upright two-stringed
violin[2]) along the Silk Road[3].

We are very excited to have her join the WMF Grantmaking team, and look
forward to improving our ability to serve the needs of applicants and
grantees alike.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Wikitech-l] Reasonator use in Wikipedias

2014-01-23 Thread Gerard Meijssen
Hoi,

We can provide information now(ish). We are discussing draft because it is
a likely avenue. It is however very much NOT intended for the English
Wikipedia. If anything it would be much better if we work this out on other
Wikipedias first.

The most benefit from Reasonator will be for the bottom 240 Wikipedias (in
page views or articles). They are most unlikely to provide the information
we take for granted. They do have first and foremost a quantity problem; a
quality problem does not exist when there is nothing to assess. If anything
Wikidata is growing fast. It supports more subjects than any Wikipedia. It
supports more subjects in any language than its Wikipedia. All the time
statements are added that make the Wikidata content more valuable.

Steven, Reasonator allows us to share information we have and do not serve
in any other way with our public. Reasonator is very much developed in an
iterative way. It is not developed by committee but it relies very much on
the feedback we get. We have reported on Reasonator and associated tools
for quite some time now. The bottom line is not that every thing is
perfect. Reasonator is not. It is however getting better all the time. We
are also ready to progress towards the functionality we are discussing.

Steven would you be interested in supporting us in such an adventure ...
remember, WMF aims to share in the sum of all knowledge ... It is one way
to grow both our public and our community, it will teach us much about how
to bring Wikidata content to a public and grow its community that is
already a top 10 WMF community in contributors.
Thanks,
  Gerard

I suggest that this discussion should be on the various projects that might
be affected, particularly as different projects have very different ideas
about whether the use of Wikidata for anything more than language links is
acceptable. Many projects do not permit bulk bot creation of content, and
this proposal is a close parallel.

Further, content that isn't editable on the project on which it is hosted
is probably not a very effective way to persuade people to turn it into an
actual page.

Trialing the process on some small projects that actively volunteer to
participate would be a first step.
