Re: [Wikimedia-l] Summary of the Brand Project presentation

2020-04-18 Thread Anders Wennersten
I have a background in a telecom supplier, and we were proud to talk of 
us "connecting people" and with 5G (where things also gets connected) 
"interconenctivity" would be a great brand concept for that company.


But for Wikimedia I have never felt this as a relevant brandconcept. To 
"share and spread knowledge"is the core word as far as I see it and have 
been all the time.

Have now watched "interconnection". It did not seem to say anything
tangible apart from stuff like you find 'interconnection in nature' in
the 2 minutes. It was produced to a good standard.

Sorry, it was not encouraging. The question remains of how much this
is costing the movement in WMF funding and valuable Wikimedia
community time without any clear outcomes being defined that the
Wikimedia community wants or could use to benefit the core value of
adding to the sum of human knowledge. Why the "rebranding" project
continues at this time remains an enigma.

We have gone ahead and added the video to Commons. If superseded it
will remain useful as a snapshot as of 16 April.

Hi everyone,


Yesterday, the 2030 Brand Movement Project presented the unified concept
that will guide the upcoming branding proposals. Thanks to the 224
attendees who watched the presentation live! Participants brought a great
stream of comments and questions (averaging 8 per minute!) that helped
clarify important points.

The unified concept, “interconnection”, was arrived at after many community
workshops, exercises, and conversations. “Interconnection” distills the 23
distinct concepts generated in workshops into a single word that links
together the insights and definitions from the participants, and at the
same time adds more meaning to the answer to the question who are we? This
concept will not be a public or visible part of branding, but rather a
guiding idea.

Take a look at the video explaining interconnection as a unified concept
[1].

You can watch the full presentation video, together with the lively
discussion that accompanied it [2]. Most of the questions were answered
during the presentation (including questions about the project scope, the
upcoming naming convention proposals, and the RfC), but there wasn't enough
time to answer them all. Questions are being compiled on the Brand Network
talk page on Meta [3].

The team will be hosting a follow-up office hour next week to answer the
rest of the questions. Participation details will be shared on the Brand
Network talk page. The session will be recorded and shared, and answers
will be covered on the project pages. If you have a different question
you’d like to ask, feel free to add it to the page or bring it to the
office hour.

PS: As soon as these videos are ready for Commons we will upload them
there, and we will notify about this on the Brand Network talk page as well.

Thanks,

Samir & the Brand Project team

[Wikimedia-l] World Tapir Day - April, 27

2020-04-18 Thread Rocío Consales via Wikimedia-l
¡Hola a todos! 

I'm inviting everyone who wishes to participate in World Tapir Day on April 27.

In the past few years the organization https://www.tapirday.org has carried out 
various live activities. But due to the current situation, they didn't this 
year. I wrote to them and they were happy to help spread and share the 
information of this year online editathon on their social networks.

I have already created a page for Wikipedia in Spanish: 
https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Encuentros/Editat%C3%B3n_en_l%C3%ADnea_D%C3%ADa_mundial_del_Tapir

Shortened link: https://bit.ly/tapir_2020

I invite you to celebrate this day by creating more online editathon in other 
languages :)

Best,
Rocío Mantis

Hi,

Interconnection is a six piece word for link. In the wiki world a wiki is
both a page and a link.

I sincerely doubt you are going to propose to use Interconnectionpedia as
the single brand.

Greetings,

Ad
