Re: [Wikimedia-l] Fwd: [discovery] Interactive Team putting work on pause

2017-02-10 Thread Gerard Meijssen
Hoi,
Anna I absolutely loved what you write. It is very much uplifting to see
that you want to move forward and want to do this based on the facts on the
ground and not so much on our convoluted history that is spread out so much
that even someone like me who has been involved for the longest time has
given up on yesterdays arguments.

Some will say but.. but ... and from their position they may be right. They
forget that there are over 280 languages, more in the pipe line and even
more projects and as it is we do not consider this at all. English
Wikipedia is less than 50% and as Asaf said in a recent presentation less
than 50% of the people in this world have English as a first or second
language. Arguments from the past mean that the diversity we are is less
important than the incumbency of the present talking heads.

When arguments are based in the past, the reality check if the arguments
still fit the present is typically left out. When arguments are of high
quality, they should still convince and do not need to consider their
legacy.
Thanks,
   GerardM

Thank you for explaining that. I appreciate you teaching me the rules.
After I posted, I also had a number of wiki elves simultaneously ping me on
a number of different channels to let me know the very same thing. A bunch
of gardeners just tending to the commons. It was delightful. It felt like
an entrance into a different world. I was wondering when the hobbits would
show up with second breakfast and above all: ale. I want some ale.

Yes.

Sometimes I wonder if hope isn’t at the base of it all. Perhaps hope is
necessary but certainly not sufficient for it all to transpire. Hope is not
a strategy. But maybe it's a foundation.

Besides, I could use some. Hope, that is. It’s looking bleak out there.
It’s tough to wake up in the middle of your life and realize that it looks
like most of the world thinks a regression back to nationalism and
censorship and white, straight power is a good idea. Not as tough as
needing knowledge and food and health every single day and not having
access to it, but tough in a Maslow’s-hierarchy-kinda-way.  There is so
much work to do on so many fronts.

I wake up thinking about and feeling unsure about the future.

Thank you. I have not yet read these because I spent a lot of time this
week clarifying Joady’s and my role with KM and JL. We all wanted clarity
on which problems we were solving and which ones we were not. My JD is at
the end of the email if you would like that clarity as well.

[Wikimedia-l] February 10: Update on Wikimedia movement strategy process (#6)

2017-02-10 Thread Katherine Maher
Hi all!

A somewhat shorter email this week:


*First, thank you!*
Thanks to everyone who commented on the prototypes from the Community
Process Steering Committee.[1] As a reminder, these are draft proposals for
*how* we structure the upcoming strategy discussion. The goal is to be
inclusive of our whole movement, and give participants many ways to
participate, on- and off-wiki.

Prior to starting this work, we heard from many people that they wanted to
be involved in designing the process, not just the strategy itself. This is
that opportunity! Please make sure to comment if you are interested in
sharing your ideas. We welcome everyone’s input and hope to hear from many
more of you.

*Summary of this past week*

Track A (Organized community groups) and Track B (Individual contributors).

   - We posted the second version of process prototypes for Track A & Track
   B on Meta,[1] incorporating suggestions from the Steering Committee. Main
   improvements included:
   - Adding more support, including a designated Track A lead
  - Adding a Beta rollout to the Track A design (20 February−1 March)
  for groups to test and give feedback on the toolkit
   - Expanding the timeframe for the first round of discussion.
   - We have begun building a facilitator toolkit and context for group
   discussions, based on input from the Community Process Steering Committee.
   - We are discussing how to reach more people, more effectively. Our goal
   is to inform as many members of the movement about upcoming strategy as
   possible, so community members are aware of the ways they can participate.
   We’re working to identify how to do this.
   - We have requested the Community Process Steering Committee extend
   their engagement period by two weeks, to provide additional input on the
   toolkit and discussions framing.
   - The Community Engagement department is reviewing candidates for the
   Language Specialist Strategy Coordinators. We have many strong candidates,
   but have some gaps. Please help us find candidates [2] for:
  - Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Russian, Vietnamese, Malayalam

Track C (High reach markets) and Track D (Low reach markets)

   - We discussed potential Track C leads and scheduled time with extended
   strategy group to better define Track C.
   - Juliet Barbara, Toby Negrin, and Caitlin Virtue from the Foundation
   will help lead Track D. We’ll share more information soon about how you can
   participate in its development and implementation. More information will be
   posted on Meta-Wiki.[3]
   - The C and D working groups began reaching out to experts and advisors
   for insights on opportunities for the movement.
   - The working groups are developing methods for identifying like-minded
   organizations and experts in knowledge to engage in upcoming Track C and D
   discussions.

*Next steps*

   - Finalize the process for Tracks A & B, incorporating your input.
   - Finalize the plan for each Track's first phase of movement-wide
   discussions - including selection of topics and questions to help
   facilitate effective discussions.
   - Finish initial version of facilitator toolkit for group beta testing.
   - Propose initial framing for discussions for review by the Community
   Process Steering Committee
   - Confirm all track leads and groups, related responsibilities, and
   necessary support.
   - Propose objectives for Wikimedia Conference 2017 in Berlin and begin
   designing the strategy track with conference facilitators.
   - Build to launch strategy, notifying as many community members as
   possible.

In the spirit of informing more people, we will send a brief, monthly
update message tomorrow to a wide variety of community lists and forums.

Alright, that’s it! But before I go, please check out the prototype designs
on Meta-Wiki, and leave comments.[1] This is your opportunity!

Happy Weekend,
Katherine

 I didn't receive this message at all, but yes, Alessandro raises two
good points.

I'm UTC+(1|2), and Asaf is UTC-(7|8). The time zone really isn't a
deciding factor—it's a "nice to have."

As Katie said, the Mailman page is current. If there's a wiki page out
there with incorrect information, let me know, or just fix it
yourself. :)
