And for those who didn't see it on Social Media:

The first story is about Bojan, who uses Wikimedia as a tool to promote
LGBT rights in the homophobic, conservative context of Serbia.

[Wikimedia-l] Coming up: A Knowlege Equity Calendar

2019-11-29 Thread Cornelius Kibelka via Wikimedia-l
Hi all,

I’m delighted to pre-announce a small communication initiative called
“Knowledge Equity Calendar” for the upcoming weeks:

Back in 2017, the Wikimedia Movement agreed on its Strategic Direction with
its core goal to be the essential infrastructure of the ecosystem of free
knowledge until 2030.[1] One priority to achieve this goal is called
"Knowledge Equity" (As a social movement, we will focus our efforts on the
knowledge and communities that have been left out by structures of power
and privilege. We will welcome people from every background to build strong
and diverse communities. We will break down the social, political, and
technical barriers preventing people from accessing and contributing to
free knowledge.). But what does that mean in your context? What are others
already doing to translate “Knowledge Equity” from the strategic to the
programmatic level?

In the light of the last days and weeks of the year, we'd like to adapt the
German tradition of the “Advent calendar
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advent_calendar>” counting the days towards
Christmas (December 1 to 24), and share one story per day via Meta[2] and
Wikimedia Space blog[3] on how Wikimedians are working towards achieving
Knowledge Equity in their respective context. The idea is mainly to inspire
Wikimedians what other Wikimedians are already doing. We’ll use Wikimedia
Deutschland's Twitter and Facebook accounts to accompany that.

On Meta, the translation extension is activated – so if you like, chip in
and translate the stories to your language. Or just share the stories with
other Wikimedians to show what kind of cool and inspiring initiatives and
projects working towards Knowledge Equity we already have in the Wikimedia
movement.

If you have any questions about the initiative, the stories, or what an
Advent calendar is, feel free to send me a message.

Happy reading and sharing,

Cornelius

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Brief request for advice about "What's making you happy this week?"

2019-11-25 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Hi,

to be honest, the question doesn't appeal to me. Around Wikimedia, I'm
interested in things that *interest me* and help me in my work, but
*happiness* doesn't work for me as a term, it's a too American for me ;)

Cheers

[Wikimedia-l] Visiting Wikimedian for the Wikimedia Summit 2020

2019-08-19 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Hi all,

In preparation for the next Wikimedia Summit 2020 – which will take place
from April 3 to 5 in Berlin, Germany[1] – we again launch a call for a “
Visiting Wikimedian”. This initiative aims to transfer practical knowledge
from the German chapter to other Wikimedia movement affiliates and provides
us with an outside view.

The scope of a “Visiting Wikimedian” is mainly to support the organization
of the Wikimedia Summit in terms of logistics and program. The “Visiting
Wikimedian” will be involved in all essential steps of the planning and
organizing process and will be able to contribute in multiple ways. We are
open to designing the tasks together, according to the Visiting Wikimedian’s
skills and experiences and her or his affiliate’s needs. We are especially
looking for a person who can apply the knowledge to an upcoming event, for
example if the affiliate is hosting a regional or international conference.

You can find more information about the initiative and all application
details on Meta.[2] We had four Visiting Wikimedians over the last years,
check also their blost posts on the linked on the Meta page.

If you are interested in becoming a Visiting Wikimedian, please check the
conditions and details on Meta and apply to wmsum...@wikimedia.de until
September 15, 2019 (incl).

Best regards,

[Wikimedia-l] Now online: Wikimedia Deutschland’s 2018 report to the Wikimedia Movement

2019-05-07 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Dear fellow Wikimedians,

Below you will find Wikimedia Deutschland’s 2018 report to the Wikimedia
Movement. Since 2017, Wikimedia Deutschland no longer receives movement
funds through the Annual Plan Grant program (via the Funds Dissemination
Committee, FDC). However, as an organization of this movement, we are
committed to sharing annually what we do and what we learn, being
accountable for our financial resources, and checking progress and impact
based on goals and objectives in Wikimedia Deutschland’s Annual Plan.

In this report you will find overviews, stories and descriptions of our
work in 2018 in three fields of action: Volunteers, Technology/ Software
Development and Conditions for Free Knowledge, as well as about our general
support for the Wikimedia movement. You will also find the financial
information for fiscal year 2018. This report for the movement goes out to
all people and affiliates who are interested in learning more about the
work of our chapter. A broader, less detailed view will be provided in our
Annual Report, to be published in the upcoming weeks.

Start page:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Deutschland/Movement_Report_2018

Short URL: w.wiki/35Z

Enjoy reading! If you have any questions or suggestions, please let us know.

Best regards

Cornelius

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Summit 2019: Report available on Meta

2019-04-18 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Dear Wikimedians,

As you may have noticed, almost three weeks ago, the Wikimedia Summit 2019 (
w.wiki/38b) took place in Berlin.

Over three days, representatives from Wikimedia affiliates, the Wikimedia
Foundation, and three Wikimedia committees came together with members of
nine movement strategy working groups to discuss how to build the future of
the Wikimedia movement and ensure access to more knowledge for more people.

As for the last Wikimedia Conferences, we have published an in-depth report
documenting on what happened over the three days. The report is now
available on Meta:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Summit_2019/Documentation
(or via the short url w.wiki/38c)

The report describes in depth what participants done over the three days:
Looking back on what the Working Groups have done over the last months,
checking-in on the Strategy Process, feedbacking and enriching the scoping
documents – and planning what needs to happen until Wikimania.

If you have any questions regarding the Summit or the report, please let me
know.

Best regards

Cornelius
Program Coordinator for the Wikimedia Summit

Welcome, Joel and Isabel! Looking forward to meet you in person.
Congratulations, Rachel, for the new team! :)

Just a question: Isabel, are you now the official successor of Ellie Young?
Can we direct questions about Wikimania to you? (as soon as you're
onboarded :)

Cheers

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Summit 2019 - Registration closes December 17

2018-12-05 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Hi J. Balaji,

indeed, the Wikimedia Conference 2018 had this option. However, as we are
changing the whole concept of the event (also a reason for a name change)
and limiting the number of participants to 200 max., we cannot invited
unaffiliated groups ( = groups that do not have an affiliate status [yet]).

Both, the Wikimedia Conference and the Wikimedia Summit are *affiliate
conferences*, means we want to keep focussing on Wikimedia affiliates and
the Wikimedia Foundation.

Best regards,
Cornelius

one delegate of your affiliate to attend the Wikimedia Summit. Also beyond
the selection, questions arose and arise regularly around the purpose and
objectives of the Wikimedia Summit as well as the connection to the
Movement strategy process.

As an initiative to provide clarity and support from the the Organizing
team and the Movement Strategy Core Team, I’m hosting two office hours via
Google Hangout. To cover more time zones and availabilities, there will be
two calls (but both with the same content, no need to attend both):


   -

   Thursday, November 15, 8:00 [8 AM] UTC – link to hangout:
   https://meet.google.com/uzh-chey-rsf
   -

   Sunday, November 18, 18:00 [6 PM] UTC – link to hangout:
   https://meet.google.com/xaw-zecx-fam


If you are unavailable at these proposed time slots, we can either arrange
a call separately or you can follow up via email.

As always, please let us know your concerns and questions.

Best regards

Cornelius
for the Wikimedia Summit organizing team

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Summit 2019: Registration now open

2018-11-02 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Dear Wikimedians,

We are delighted to announce that the registration for the Wikimedia Summit
2019 [1], which will be held in Berlin at Mercure Hotel Berlin Tempelhof
Airport [2] from Friday, March 29, through Sunday, March 31, is now open!

As we have announced previously, the main focus of this redesigned event
will be the Movement Strategy Process. We invite affiliates, the Wikimedia
Foundation, its committees and Movement Strategy Working Group members to
check-in, have a look back and plan the next steps of the process together.

We would like to provide you with important information regarding the
eligibility for participation, participant number regulation, registration
procedure, specifics in regards to the travel and hotel booking as well as
the visa application process.

== Eligibility criteria and participant number regulation ==

The eligibility criteria for participating in the Wikimedia Summit 2019 are
aligned to the Affiliates’ Agreements with the Wikimedia Foundation.
Chapters, Thematic Organizations and User Groups must have shown signs of
recent activity and be up-to-date on their reporting [3] by the eligibility
deadline (December 1, 2018). Moreover, affiliations need to have been
officially recognized by the Wikimedia Foundation before January 1, 2018.
Before registering for the Wikimedia Summit, please check the eligibility
and status overview of your affiliate as well as the participant number
regulation on meta [4].

==Registration information==

To make the summit a success, it will be essential for the invited
affiliates to deliberately choose their delegates. Affiliates are asked to
send delegates that are well-informed in goings-on at the affiliate and
able to confidently answer questions about it. We have shared specific
registration advices and information regarding this [5].

We are looking forward to also welcoming members of the Wikimedia
Foundation Board of Trustees and staff, the Funds Dissemination Committee,
Simple APG committee as well as the Affiliations Committee in Berlin. We
see a huge advantage in having their representatives participate on site.

Also, the Core Team has invited Working Group members from the Movement
Strategy Working Groups.

All representatives need to register via the registration form [5]. The
registration deadline is Monday at midnight CET, December 17, 2018. Please
note that we won’t be able to accept and process registrations after this
deadline.

==Hotel and travel booking==

Depending on your group belonging the booking process varies. Therefore,
please double-check on meta [4] to which group you belong to and have the
group-specific travel and hotel booking information [6] in mind.

==Visa information==

Please visit the website of the Department of Foreign Affairs in Berlin [7]
to find out whether you need a visa for travelling to Germany. In case you
are in need of a visa, we advise you to register until November 19, 2018,
so that WMDE can assist you with the application process and send you the
required visa documents sufficiently in advance. All relevant information
and necessary steps to undertake are also described on meta [8].

Wikimedia Deutschland is looking forward to welcoming you in Berlin in
April!

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us any time via wmsum...@wikimedia.de
should you have any questions or comments.

Best regards,

Michelle & Cornelius

Hi Thea, hi Seddon,

thanks for the report! Sometimes, I'd love to see more details on specific
details. Nevertheless, thanks for publishing it.

More out of curiosity: Can you give more details on the origin of donations
within Africa? Are they all from South Africa?

Cheers

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Conference 2019: New name, new concept, eligbility criteria

2018-09-28 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Hi Lodewijk,

quick sanity check answer:
* I do mention WMF staff members. Of the 200 participants, we see at least
20 staff members of the Wikimedia Foundation participating that are not
present in other roles (like the ones you have mentioned). It is also
mentioned on the Eligibility Criteria page:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Summit_2019/Eligibility_Criteria
* The 4th group of participants (around 20 or more seats) consists of
Working Group members, but also external experts. Together with the
Movement Strategy Core Team we will invite additional experts, as we have
done in the past as well. Ryan Merkley, the CC CEO you have mentioned, was
at the Conference in 2017 and 2018. As well, two staff members of Mozilla
have been present there as well. We would like to continue this.

Hope that answers your questions.

Best regards
Cornelius

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Conference 2019: New name, new concept, eligbility criteria

2018-09-26 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Dear Pine,

I beg to differ on two points:
As the Wikimedia Foundation is an essential part of this event, I don't
consider "Wikimedia Affiliates Summit" as more accurate. This event covers,
as mentioned before, the "organized (or "structured") part of the Wikimedia
movement". As 'Wikimedia Summit' has not been used before in the Wikimedia
movement (only for the 'Developers Summit'), I think this name is fresh,
unused, short and easy to understand.

While I have asked for feedback on the concept extensively via different
channels and opportunities, I think, it's not a wise decision to ask for
public comment for a renaming. I consider the name of a conference as one
of less relevant parts of organizing a conference. I would encourage to
give feedback on more relevant issues than the name of an event.

Best regards
Cornelius

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Conference 2019: New name, new concept, eligbility criteria

2018-09-26 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Dear Shani,

sure, I'm happy to explain my rationale. The decision has a longer
rationale, based on our experiences from organizing the last Wikimedia
Conferences with its usual format (as in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018). Early
this year, we have published a three year report (2015–2017) on the last
Wikimedia Conferences.[1] As stated in this report, we came to the
conclusion (among others[2]) that the format of having everything in one
place (conversations about the future of the movement/Movement Strategy,
learning/capacity-building, peer-to-peer exchange/networking, etc.) has its
limits and doesn't work anymore.

The Movement has grown a lot over the last years. That means also that the
diversity among the conference participants became bigger and bigger, and
it became increasingly hard to create a program based on the needs, wishes
and experiences of the participants that satisfied all of them.
Additionally, we think that learning on a global has its strong limits, as
the knowledge shared is only applicable in really specific circumstances or
is too general. Learning on regional, national, local or thematic events
has proven to be more successful. The recent Community Engagement Insights
survey gave a similar indication.[3]

With a stronger focus of this event (and a complete change in this set-up:
It's the platform for the Movement Strategy process, and not the other way
around), there comes also a stronger support (and increase) of regional and
thematic events, as agreed with the Wikimedia Foundation. I have talked
with different organizers of regional events that agreed to focus stronger
on capacity-building at their events.

Thus, this decision does not come out of the blue. We have shared this
report, I have shared this at other events (Wikimedia Conference 2018[4],
Wikimania 2018[5]), it was shared previously on this mailing list, I have
talked with most speakers of the Wikimedia Conference 2018, the Wikimedia
Chapter EDs, the organizers of the upcoming regional conferences. Apart
from some particular criticism, the feedback for this decision was
basically unanimously positive.

I hope that helps. Happy to answer any questions regarding this.

Best regards,
Cornelius

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Conference 2019: New name, new concept, eligbility criteria

2018-09-25 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Dear Pine,

yes, "the organized part of the movement" is another term to describe the
part of the Wikimedia movement that includes the WMF, its committees and
the affiliates.

Best regards
Cornelius

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Conference 2019: New name, new concept, eligbility criteria

2018-09-25 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Dear all,

As Nicole Ebber already wrote a couple of weeks ago, we would like to give
you some further information about the next Wikimedia Conference, that will
take place from March 29–31, 2019 in Berlin, Germany.

The next conference will focus on the Movement Strategy process and
movement governance for the organized part of the movement in general. The
program will be designed according to the status and needs of the ongoing
Movement Strategy process and its working groups. We are hoping to see a
diverse group of participants next year, and look forward to creating three
days of working, discussing, and thinking together. The event is made
possible through the generous financial support of the Wikimedia Foundation.

Thus, to make it clearer that learning and capacity-building will not be
part of the program and cut laces to the previous conference, we will
change the name to “Wikimedia Summit” (#wmsummit).

The change of the purpose of the event is accompanied by a change in the
composition of the audience. The event will be a more focused one, and
therefore we aim to scale down the audience to around 200 participants. As
it is this still the Wikimedia affiliates conference, every _eligible_
affiliate can send one (1) delegate. Furthermore, we will invite
participants from the Wikimedia Affiliate EDs (~10), WMF Board of Trustees
(10), WMF staff (~10), the committees (~15 from FDC, AffCom and Simple APG)
and additional members of the Movement Strategy working groups, that do not
come in another role (~20). You can find more information regarding this on
Meta.[1]

Registration for the Wikimedia Summit will open on November 2 and end on
December 17, 2018. We urge participants that need a visa to register no
later than November 19, so we can support them as best as possible to get a
visa for the event.

We will keep you updated in the further weeks and months via the usual
communication channels. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate
to contact us, preferably via wmsum...@wikimedia.de.

Best regards,

Daniela Gentner & Cornelius Kibelka

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Deutschland: Annual Report 2017

2018-08-22 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Hi all,
We have recently published our Annual Report 2017. If you would like
to learn more about examples of Wikimedia Deutschland's projects and
programs from last year, have a look:

https://2017.wikimedia.de/en

Thanks to the great response last year, our annual report is again
available as a visually appealing, responsive online version that also
works pretty well on mobile.

If you rather prefer to print it, you can do so as well: Our report is
available on Wikimedia Commons as a PDF version (3,96 MB):

Happy reading,
Cornelius

[Wikimedia-l] Visiting Wikimedian for the Wikimedia Conference 2019

2018-08-22 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Hi all,

In preparation for the upcoming Wikimedia Conference 2019 – which will take
place from March 29 to March 31 in Berlin, Germany[1] – we again launch a
call for a “Visiting Wikimedian”. This initiative aims to transfer
practical knowledge from the German chapter to other Wikimedia movement
affiliates and provides us with an outside view.

The scope of a “Visiting Wikimedian” is mainly to support the organization
of the Wikimedia Conference in terms of logistics and program. The “Visiting
Wikimedian” will be involved in all essential steps of the planning and
organizing process and will be able to contribute in multiple ways. We are
open to designing the tasks together, according to the Visiting Wikimedian’s
skills and experiences and her or his affiliate’s needs. We are especially
looking for a person who can apply the knowledge to an upcoming event, for
example if the affiliate is hosting a regional or international conference.

You can find more information about the initiative and all application
details on Meta.[2] We had three Visiting Wikimedians over the last years,
check also their blost posts on the linked on the Meta page.

If you are interested in becoming a Visiting Wikimedian, please check the
conditions and details on Meta and apply to wm...@wikimedia.de until
September 19, 2019 (incl).

Best regards,
Cornelius

another, a bit funnier style:

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Conference 2018: Grant report published

2018-06-22 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Dear all,

two months ago, the Wikimedia Conference 2018 took place in Berlin,
Germany. Wikimedia Deutschland hosted and organized the conference, which
was funded by a WMF grant. We have now published the grant report for it:

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Conference/WMDE/Wikimedia_Conference_2018/Report

The grant report includes the evaluation of the participants survey. Thanks
to all 184 participants who took part in the survey. Take a deeper look
into the results:

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference_2018/Feedback_evaluation

From February until May, Vira Motorko, project manager at Wikimedia
Ukraine, supported us in organizing the conference within WMDE's exhange
program "Visiting Wikimedian". You can read a blog post about her
experience in the Wikimedia blog:

Thank you all,
best regards,

2018-05-17 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
*Dear participants of the Wikimedia Conference,Dear Wikimedians, I am happy
to announce that we have just published the report for the Movement
Strategy Track at
WMCON.https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference_2018/Documentation/Movement_Strategy_track
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference_2018/Documentation/Movement_Strategy_track>
The documentation for the other tracks will be coming up within the next
two weeks, and I am currently working with all speakers and hosts to
finalize their session reports. The report is pretty extensive and if you’d
print it, over 100 pages long. This is mostly due to the vast quantity of
data the participants of the Strategy Track have produced together, and of
course also due to the excellent work of our facilitators and harvesters
Bhav, Luis, Rob, Olha and Anna Lena and the unique photos taken by Jason.
**The summary at the beginning will help you find your way through the
report, and through each single session of the track.**The Strategy Core
Team will provide an update on the coming steps in the process following
this email, so stay tuned! Happy reading, and please feel invited to leave
any feedback and questions on the talk page. Best,Cornelius *--

[Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia Announcements] Wikimedia Conference 2015-2017: 3 Year Report

2018-03-21 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Dear all,

We are excited to share a report on our main learnings from the last three
years of organizing the Wikimedia Conference. From 2015 to 2017 we have
focused on improving the conference from year to year, each time learning
from the experiences and feedback from the preceding years.

The report reflects on our learnings regarding logistics, program design,
and the general purpose of the conference. The conclusion of the report
leads to some central questions  that we together need to create clarity
around to make the most of the Wikimedia Conference in the future: Who is
the target audience of the Wikimedia Conference? How can we strengthen
capacity building within the Movement and build stronger links between all
Wikimedia events? How can the Wikimedia Conference continue to be a useful
space for conversations about the future direction of the Wikimedia
Movement?

You can find the report here:

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference/2015%E2%80%932017_Report


Also, we have a layouted version as a pdf

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wikimedia_Conference_2015_to_2017_Report.pdf


We look forward to seeing many of you at this year’s WMCON, where the
future concept and scope of the conference also will be part of the program.

Warm regards,

Cornelius, Nicole and Daniela

Re: [Wikimedia-l] New language code for Western Armenian language

2018-02-01 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
This is really great! Congratulations to this success to both of you,
Wikimedia Armenia and the Gulbenkian Foundation!

I really appreciate to see that creating and preserving Free Knowledge can
have such an influence on official language policies :)

Best regards

You can download the Youtube machine-generated subtitles, but they are not
really good (in terms of spelling, etc.). If someone is eager to review
them, I'm happy to upload them.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Conference 2018: Program themes, eligibility criteria and reporting deadlines

2017-10-25 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Hi all,

aside from the conversation about project/language communities – thanks for
the feedback! – I just wanted to share the Eligibility Criteria page for
the conference that is available on Meta: https://meta.wikimedia.o
rg/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference_2018/Eligibility_Criteria

I have received some off-list questions about specific details for specific
affiliates. I think most of the questions are answered on this page. In
case your question is not answered, feel free to write me an e-mail
off-list.

Best regards,
Cornelius

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Conference 2018: Program themes, eligibility criteria and reporting deadlines

2017-10-23 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Hi Lodewijk, hi JP,

Over the last years, we received the feedback that the Wikimedia Conference
would not be as (globally) representative as it could or should be. For the
Wikimedia Conference 2017, several “Community Leaders” were invited to the
conference to be heard for the Movement Strategy process, but the
selection/invitation process was not as clear as it could have been.

To be more representative on a global scale and to have more different
people from different regions present at the conference, we needed clear,
transparent and non arbitrary criteria. However, there is no solution that
covers every possible challenge. Therefore, we chose to give this approach
– with clear criteria – at least a try for the Wikimedia Conference 2018.
Also, as we expect more changes in the Movement in the upcoming year, this
approach is a try for 2018 only, as an overhaul of the whole concept of the
Wikimedia Conference will be needed anyway.

Additionally, I want to highlight this, because this was criticized in the
past as well, all regularly eligible affiliates may send at least two
representatives.

I’m aware that this approach implies challenges, though. I’m happy to
receive suggestions on how to come up with equally clear and transparent
criteria.

Best regards,

Cornelius

Of course, I meant:

"The registration process will start on November 24, *2017* and will end
sharply (no exceptions), on January 15, 2018."

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Conference 2018: Program themes, eligibility criteria and reporting deadlines

2017-10-23 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Dear Wikimedians, dear representatives of Wikimedia affiliates,

A few weeks ago, we announced that the next Wikimedia Conference will take
place from April 20 to 22, 2018 at the Mercure Hotel in Berlin-Neukölln
(same location as in 2017). This email contains information about the
program themes and the Eligibility Criteria for invited affiliates
including the relevant reporting deadlines.

== Program Themes ==

As in the previous editions of the conference, the Wikimedia Conference
2018 will again focus on three core themes.

   -

   Movement Strategy: In November 2017, phase 2 of the Wikimedia Movement
   Strategy Process will start. Its main goal will be to answer the question
   "How do we implement the strategic direction", which means identifying the
   roles and resources needed for execution, and the activities it involves.
   In order to ensure participation from the organized part of the movement in
   this next phase, we will again host a three-day track on movement strategy.
   This track will be designed together with the Wikimedia Foundation.
   -

   Partnerships in the Wikimedia Movement: Wikimedia organizations and
   groups have a wide variety of experiences and knowledge in working with
   partners to achieve our mission. Based on the conversation at the last
   Wikimedia Conference, Wikimania, and regional Wikimedia conferences, we aim
   to continue to offer a space for conversations, experience sharing and
   learning around partnerships within and outside the Wikimedia movement.
   This track will be designed together with the Wikimedia Foundation’s Global
   Reach & Partnerships team, WMDE’s Partnerships & Development team and the
   volunteer “Partnerships group”.
   -

   Capacity Building & Learning: The Wikimedia Conference currently is one
   of the main spaces for learning and sharing among Wikimedia affiliates.
   Again, we will host a track with sessions that are designed according to
   the participants’ needs, wishes and experiences. This track will be
   designed in close consultation with WMF’s Learning & Evaluation team, and
   will complement the pre-conference Learning Days.


== Eligibility Criteria ==

The eligibility criteria for participating in the Wikimedia Conference 2018
are aligned to the Affiliates’ Agreements with the Wikimedia Foundation.

Chapters, Thematic Organizations and User Groups must have shown signs of
recent activity (within the last six months) and be up-to-date on their
reporting by the eligibility deadline (December 15, 2017). Moreover,
affiliates need to have been officially recognized by the Wikimedia
Foundation before April 19, 2017.

== Participant number regulation ==

   -

   Chapters, Thematic Organizations and User Groups may send two delegates.
   Chapters and Thematic Organizations which employ at least 0.5 FTE by Sep 1,
   2017, may send one additional delegate who is a paid staff member.
   -

   Allied organizations may send two delegates.
   -

   The biggest ten language/project communities (by numbers of active
   editors [>5 edits/month]) that are not represented by any affiliate, or
   have an affiliate, which is not eligible because it was recognized after
   April 19, 2017, may send one delegate.
   -

  As per September 2017, the biggest communities without an (eligible)
  affiliate representation are the Japanese, Vietnamese, Tamil, Bengali,
  Slovak, Croatian, Hindi and Malay, Wikimedia Commons and Wikivoyage
  communities.
  -

  The user groups West Bengal Wikimedians User Group (for the Bengali
  community), Hindi Wikimedians User Group (for the Hindi
community), Wikimedia
  Community User Group Malaysia (for the Malay community), as well as
  the Commons Photographers User Group (for the Wikimedia Commons
  community) and the Wikivoyage Association (for the Wikivoyage
  communities) may send one delegate. For the language communities
(Japanese,
  Vietnamese, Tamil, Slovak, Croatian), decision finding and making process
  on who will be the one person sent to the conference, need to be made in
  the public (on-wiki).


== Registration timeline ==

The registration process will start on November 24, 2018 and will end
sharply (no exceptions), on January 15, 2018. The link will be provided on
Meta.[1]

If you have any questions regarding the registration process or the
Wikimedia Conference, please do not hesitate to send us an e-mail to
wm...@wikimedia.de.

[Wikimedia-l] Visiting Wikimedian for the Wikimedia Conference 2018

2017-09-20 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Hi all,

In preparation for the upcoming Wikimedia Conference 2018 – which will take
place from April 20 to 22 in Berlin, Germany[1] – we again launch a call
for a “Visiting Wikimedian”. This initiative aims to transfer practical
knowledge from the German chapter to other Wikimedia movement affiliates
and provides us with an outside view.

The scope of a “Visiting Wikimedian” is mainly to support the organization
of the Wikimedia Conference in terms of logistics and program. The
“Visiting Wikimedian” will be involved in all essential steps of the
planning and organizing process and will be able to contribute in multiple
ways. We are open to designing the tasks together, according to the
Visiting Wikimedian’s skills and experiences and her or his affiliate’s
needs. We are especially looking for a person who can apply the knowledge
to an upcoming event, for example if the affiliate is hosting a regional or
international conference.

You can find more information about the initiative on Meta.[2] Teele Vaalma
(Visiting Wikimedian from Wikimedia Estonia in 2016, [3]) and Davit Saroyan
(Visiting Wikimedian from Wikimedia Armenia in 2017, [4]) have both written
blog posts about their experience.

If you are interested in becoming a Visiting Wikimedian, please reach out /
apply to me directly
until 8 October (incl.).

Best regards,
Cornelius

[Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia Announcements] Wikimedia Conference 2017: Report and more learning material published

2017-06-30 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Dear Wikimedians,



Three months ago, we welcomed many of you in Berlin to work, discuss and
get inspired at the Wikimedia Conference 2017. We have now published our
extensive and colorful grant report for this event, and you can read it on
Meta:



https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference_2017/Report



In the meantime, the documentation of all sessions is complete. Check it
out on Meta as well:



https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference_2017/Documentation



While preparing the report, we have also written three learning patterns to
capture and share our experiences with other movement event organizers.



1) “Timing, Communication, Preparation: How to support your event
participants in the best way to get a Schengen Visa”

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Learning_patterns/Timing,_Communication,_Preparation:_How_to_support_your_event_participants_in_the_best_way_to_get_a_Schengen_Visa



2) “Briefing calls with speakers: A simple way to improve conference
sessions”

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Learning_patterns/Briefing_calls_with_speakers:_A_simple_way_to_improve_conference_sessions



3) “The Buddy Project: Let’s make your conference more newbie friendly!”

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Learning_patterns/The_Buddy_Project:_Let%E2%80%99s_make_your_conference_more_newbie_friendly!




And if you think, “wow, that’s a lot!”: David Saroyan, Visiting Wikimedian
at Wikimedia Deutschland from January until April, wrote a blog post about
his experience in the Wikimedia blog:

https://blog.wikimedia.org/2017/06/30/why-i-visiting-wikimedian/



We would like to thank all participants, partners, affiliates and experts
who have contributed to making this such a great event, and the Wikimedia
Foundation for their generous support.



Thank you,

Happy reading,



Cornelius, Nicole, Daniela and Wenke
(the WMCON team)


PS: Stay tuned for our upcoming announcement of the Wikimedia Conference
2018 dates.

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Conference 2017: Information on Program Design Process

2016-11-18 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Dear Wikimedia friends,

Following Christian’s invitation two weeks ago and Daniela’s and
Wenke’s email some minutes ago, we will now provide you with
information regarding program related next steps of the Wikimedia
Conference 2017 (WMCON17). A more detailed version of this email can
be found on Meta. Please use the talk pages for your questions and
comments.[1]

Together with you, we want to make this Wikimedia Conference a great
experience for all participants. Cornelius Kibelka (Program and
Engagement Coordinator, PEC) and Nicole Ebber (International Advisor,
Curator of WMCON) will work together with the facilitators as well as
the participants to create the conference program in the coming weeks
and months. The conference will have three programmatic tracks:

== 1: Movement Strategy ==

Developing a strategic vision for the future of our movement is one of
the top priorities for 2017. Although the Wikimedia Foundation is
playing the primary coordinating role, this is meant to be a community
process with involvement from across the movement, and all volunteers
interested in engaging in its development are invited and strongly
encouraged to participate. The Wikimedia Conference will serve as one
of the platforms for participation and input from movement affiliates
and allies.


== 2: Movement Partnerships ==

Wikimedia organizations and groups have a wide variety of experiences
and knowledge in working with partners to achieve our mission.
However, we have never talked about what kind of partnerships we can
build nor how an excellent partnership looks like. Being able to
achieve our mission together with movement and external partners has
been the subject of occasional sessions at past WMCONs. This time we
will deepen the conversation, try to develop a joint language and
understanding of partnerships and open up opportunities for peer
sharing and consultation.

== 3: Capacity Building & Learning ==

Based on the experiences of the last Wikimedia Conferences, we will
have again a programmatic track that focuses on shared learning and
buildings capacities among Wikimedia organizations and groups.
Learning sessions will be built according to the needs, wishes,
experiences and knowledge expressed in the registration form.

== How to select the delegates ==

WMCON is all about participation. To make the conference a success it
will be essential for the invited affiliates to deliberately select
their delegates. Participants should come to Berlin to learn and to
share, but also to bring the information and learnings back home. We
are seeking delegates who will be actively engaged before, during and
after the conference and can represent their affiliates. Ideal
delegates are those who are involved in the decision making processes
in the organization, striving to help shape the future of the
movement, partnerships specialists or program leaders[2].

== How to prepare for the registration ==

Registration has opened today and closes on January 8, 2017. In the
months between the registration and WMCON, the PEC will work on the
program with the registered participants. Because we want to build the
program to fit participant needs and experiences, we would like to
learn a little more about your interests in advance. We have published
an overview of the questions[3] that we are using in the registration
form. Please make yourself familiar with these questions, as they can
also help you to select the delegates.

== What’s next ==

We have opened the registration today. Daniela Gentner will be the
main contact for all questions regarding the logistics, you can reach
out to her via wm...@wikimedia.de.

Cornelius Kibelka is your main contact for all questions related to
the program of the Wikimedia Conference. You can contact him via
cornelius.kibe...@wikimedia.de.

We are looking forward to welcoming many of you in Berlin in March next year.

Nicole + Cornelius

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Conference: Report 2016, Outlook 2017

2016-07-21 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Dear Wikimedia friends,

We’re happy to be able to share some news and information around the
Wikimedia Conference with you:

1) Report

Today, we have published our report on the Wikimedia Conference 2016. It
does not only describe our tasks and activities before, on and after the
conference, but also provides a comprehensive overview of our learnings and
experience. The report is meant to serve as a learning resources, and based
on that, we will share more learning patterns in the upcoming months.

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference_2016/Report

2) Follow-up page

To better see what continuities and links between the Wikimedia Conferences
exist, we have created a follow-up page which include the major topics of
the last two conferences. We will share more updates in the upcoming months.

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference/Follow-Up

3) First learning pattern

Together with our “Visiting Wikimedian” Teele Vaalma, who supported us
tremendously in the organization of the Wikimedia Conference, we have
written a first learning pattern on how to find the right venue for a
conference (including a checklist!).

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Learning_patterns/Step_by_step_guide_for_finding_the_right_venue_for_a_conference

4) Wikimedia Conference 2017

The next edition of the Wikimedia Conference will take place in Berlin
between March 31st and April 2nd, 2017. We expect the registration to begin
in mid-November and will share a timeline in the upcoming weeks.

Cheers & good reading,

Cornelius, Nicole, Wenke and Daniela

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference_2016/Feedback_evaluation

Dear Wikimedia friends,

In April, Wikimedia Deutschland hosted the Wikimedia Conference 2016 in
Berlin.[1] y job as the Program and Engagement Coordinator is – besides
creating the program – to make this conference more sustainable and secure
continuous participation of everyone involved.[2] My primary assignment is
to support the participants and speakers. But it’s more than that: My task
is to ensure and monitor that essential conference topics are constantly
being worked on and further developed.

The first step for your further engagement is the documentation of the
sessions. I’m happy to announce that I just have published it on Meta:

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference_2016/Documentation and
Follow-Up

Based on the notes of the volunteer notetakers, I have summarised the
conversations and discussions of most of the sessions. Many sessions have a
“How to move forward” box where you can see the next steps agreed upon at
the conference and contact persons to reach out to. The documentation is
not only a valuable resource for participants, but should also provide
those who did not attend with insights and inspiration.

During the pre-conference Thursday of Wikimania 2016, Nicole and I will
host a “WMCON Follow-Up Day” where will work further on the main topics of
the Wikimedia Conference. I’ll publish more details about this day in the
upcoming days.

Additionally, our Evaluation team has published the WMCON evaluation based
on the post-survey we asked participants to fill out.[3] Thanks to all
participants who have rated the Wikimedia Conference extraordinary well:
67% of the participants said the conference was ‘excellent’, 32% rated it
as ‘good’. Wow! You can find further details and opinions in the evaluation

[Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia Announcements] Update on what happened since the Wikimedia Conference 2015

2015-08-07 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Hello dear friends,

I’m happy to provide you with an update about what happened since the
Wikimedia Conference in Berlin. Some of the conference participants met
again at the WMCON Follow-Up Day before Wikimania and build upon certain
topics.[1]

As it is my role as the Program and Engagement Coordinator for the
Wikimedia Conference, I’m tracking what happened around the main issues of
the conference. You can find all the details on Meta.[2]

If you’re interested in certain topics, please don’t hesitate to contact
the respective thematic ambassadors. Also, if you feel that specific
aspects are missing, drop me a line.

By the way: Have you seen our lovely grant report on the Wikimedia
Conference? It contains a lot of learnings for the movement and might be
useful for preparing future movement conferences of any kind.[3]

Best regards

Cornelius

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:PEG/WM_DE/Wikimedia_Conference_2015/Report
For your convenience, I have copied the summary of the sessions here. For
details, photos and links, please check the report on Meta.[2]

== Movement Roles ==
* At the WMCON Follow-Up Day Nicole Ebber held a session regarding the idea
of a “Movement Roles” consultation. People agreed that such a broad themed
consultation wasn’t useful and should be focused on a certain issue.

== Partnerships  External Grants ==
* At the WMCON Follow-Up Day, John Andersson led a first session regarding
external grants processes and needs among affiliates. Together with the
PEC, next steps to pursue are mapping the current interested and
responsible persons for external grants among the chapters and creating a
kind of knowledge sharing hub on Meta for that topic.

* At the WMCON Follow-Up Day, Anne-Laure Prévost (WMFR) led a session on
partnerships, partnership processes and hurdles to reach them. Anne-Laure
will publish a summary of the session soon. If you’re interested in that
topic or would like to share your process creating a partnership with an
institution, reach out to her!


=== Advocacy / Public Policy ===
* At the WMCON Follow-Up Day, Dimi Dimitrov collected and gathered further
input and added them to the brainstorming list. Based on the five core
policy areas (Copyright, Censorship, Access to Knowledge, Intermediary
Protection, Privacy  Surveillance), the WMF Legal Team will start to
produce “policy white papers” and publish them on a proper site.

=== Governance ===
* Tim Moritz Hector (chair of the board of WMDE) and Abraham Taherivand
(chair of the transition committee), publish a document of lessons learnt
on how Wikimedia Deutschland managed its Executive Direction transition
phase.

== Communication ==
* Based on the Communications session at the Wikimedia Conference 2015,
Michael Jan (WMDE) and the WMF Communications team publish the Movement
Communications skill page on Meta. Please add your information, ideas and
questions.

* At Wikimania 2015, the WMF Communications Team and members of the
Communications Committee (ComCom) met to discuss several issues. Based on
the conversations, the WMF Communications team plans (until September 30)
to improve and reevaluate this list, to map people on the ComCom maing
list, to find out who wants to stay on the list and to assess and clarify
list membership criteria.

=== Community Support ===
* The VSN published its working paper and gathered further input for it at
the WMCON Follow-Up Day.

* Sati Houston and Asaf Bartov published her report on the results of her
research on needs and ways to support emerging communities in June. The
report was published on Community Capacity Development Framework.

* Based on Abraham Taherivand’s presentation at the Wikimedia Conference
2015 on user-centered software engineering, Birgit Müller is a continuous
exchange with Wikimedia Israel to implement a similar process in the Hebrew
Wikipedia.

=== Miscellaneous ===
* Cornelius Kibelka (PEC) supports the CEE meeting organisers in the
program developing process. The process is based on gathering questions and
needs of its members and members-to-be on Wikimedia CEE Meeting
2015/QuestionsNeeds. At the CEE meeting, Cornelius will start to gather
thematic input for the next Wikimedia Conference.

* The WMCON2015 organising team (Nicole Ebber, Cornelius Kibelka, Wenke
Storn, Daniela Gentner) published an extensive report including learnings
on the Wikimedia Conference 2015. At the WMCON Follow-Up Day at Wikimania,
Nicole presented her plan and timeline for the next Wikimedia Conference.

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Conference Follow-Up Day at Wikimania 2015

2015-06-27 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Sorry for crossposting;

---


Dear Wikimedia friends,

Last week, I have published the documentation of the Wikimedia Conference
2015.[1] For many sessions, participants and speakers agreed on further
steps to be taken in the next weeks and months. You find them on Meta.[1]

In three weeks, many of us will gather again in Mexico City for the
Wikimania. To make the best out of this opportunity and continue the
conversations started at the Wikimedia conference in a structured way,  I’m
organising a “WMCON Follow-Up Day” one day before the Wikimania itself, on
Thursday, July 16. At this day, you will find the opportunity to discuss
six different topics (one of them is still tbc). For each topic we will
have around 90 min, which should be sufficient to discuss details and lay
the ground for further steps. And there is still some space available for
two further topics. Email me if you’re interested in giving input.

The Follow-Up Day will take place in the Fiesta Inn Hotel, which is right
next to the Hilton Mexico City Reforma where the Wikimania takes place.

You can find all the information on the Wikimania wiki:

https://wikimania2015.wikimedia.org/wiki/WMCON_Follow-Up_Day

For an easier planning and to increase the chances for coordination and
engagement between participants/speakers during preparation, please sign up
there.

I’m really looking forward to seeing you!

Cornelius

[Wikimedia-l] Documentation of the Wikimedia Conference 2015 online

2015-06-16 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
tl:dr; The documentation of the Wikimedia Conference 2015 is published
on https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference_2015/Documentation
and Follow-Up-
-

Dear Wikimedia friends,

one month ago, Wikimedia Deutschland hosted the Wikimedia Conference 2015
in Berlin.[1] As you might remember, my job as the Program and Engagement
Coordinator is to make this conference more sustainable and secure
continuous participation of everyone involved.[2] My primary assignment is
to support the participants and speakers and liaise with the program team
throughout the year. But it’s more than that: My task is to ensure and
monitor that essential conference topics are constantly been worked on and
further developed.

The first step for your further engagement is, of course, the documentation
of the Wikimedia Conference. I’m happy to announce that I just have
published it on Meta:

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference_2015/Documentation and
Follow-Up

I have summarised the conversations and discussions of most of the
sessions, except the workshop sessions. Many sessions have a “How to move
forward” box where you can see the next steps agreed on the conference and
contact persons to reach out to. In the next days, I will sent a further
mail summarising all next steps, to give you a better overview where you
can engage and provide input.

If you have any remarks, comments or feedback, please don’t hesitate to get
in touch with me.

Best regards from Berlin,
Cornelius

  I am finally able to share with you the biggest benefit of WMRS
  Microgrants projects for this year. It's about cooperation with one
  very old institution, and it was necessary to wait for their formal
  letter.
 
  But first about the side effects of the Microgrants project...
 
  When you are going outside and tell people that you are willing to
  support their projects, it could lead into interesting outcomes. It is
  important to understand possibilities which could be opened and catch
  them.
 
  We got one interesting proposal. It was about a long term project of
  making photos of one person. The project was very interesting, but it
  turned out that it's not suitable to be supported by Wikimedia, as
  well as the amount of needed money is so small, that I am able to fund
  it personally.
 
  However, that was not the end. That guy, an amateur photographer (with
  professional skills) is actually the top Serbian lector. He proofread
  the Orthography of Serbian language.
 
  He is also a lexicographer, working in Matica srpska [1].
 
  So, we met in my office. While drinking some alcohol, besides his own
  project, we were talking about the state of Serbian lexicography and
  culture in general.
 
  We were talking about Matica srpska, as well; about present financial
  state of the institution, which has money for salaries and the most
  important projects, but doesn't have for a number of projects.
 
  I had bold ideas, of course, but I was quite skeptical about rational
  possibility of cooperation between WMRS and Matica srpska. However, he
  convinced me that the president of MS is likely willing to cooperate
  and that we should talk about that.
 
  So he told me that he'll arrange the meeting with the president and
  that we should talk about that.
 
  Few weeks later I led WMRS delegation (our ED Mile and our program
  manager Ivana were in the delegation) to the initial talks with MS.
 
  I think we were talking two hours. And I am quite confident to tell
  you that on June 20th, 2014 happened one historical event, not just
  for Wikimedia Serbia, but also for Serbian culture and free knowledge.
 
  I wasn't able to talk about this till today, when we got formal letter
  from MS, which summarize our meeting and emphases their commitment to
  accessibility of knowledge to as much people as it's possible.
 
  If you are in Slavic culture in general, you should know what Matica
  srpska is. As the most of you are not, here is the story in short...
 
  MS is the oldest cultural and scientific institution in Serbia. They
  are the main lexicographical and encyclopedistic institution in
  Serbia. It isn't easily comparable with large cultures, but,
  basically, if we don't count independent institutions, 90% of
  dictionaries and the most important encyclopedias have been created
  inside of MS or with MS as the leader of the project.
 
  We share one important trait with the institutions like MS is. It's
  about long term goals. We want to start cooperation and develop it.
  So, we are starting with cooperation slowly. During the next year our
  goal is to liberate two dictionaries. One is ornithological, the other
  one covers dialects of Vojvodina.
 
  That's just the beginning, of course. Their editions are the main
  dictionaries of Serbian language and we'll discuss the next year about
  the steps toward liberating them. They are also in charge for creation
  of national encyclopedia, but it has its own Board and during the next
  months we should start talking with the Board, as well.
 
  The significance of this cooperation for Wikimedia is that we are at
  the beginning of the first close relations with one main national
  cultural institution, which focus is creating dictionaries and
  encyclopedias. They share our goals, as well as they want to cooperate
  with us.
 
  And it's not just about liberating content because we will help it
  financially. It's their commitment, as well. They want to share their
  content on Internet. With our (technological, licensing etc.) help,
  they will become the institution which shares their content by
  default, no matter if we are involved or not.
 
  I know that this story is not applicable in many cases. It's not
  rational to expect that the University of Oxford would do the same.
  However, I am sure that this story *is* applicable in many cultures of
  the similar size, like Serbian is.
 
  It is also important that the visibility of Wikimedia organizations
  all over the world is very important. You could get something very
  valuable if you

 The Wikimedia Nederland monthly report over March is available on meta:



 https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_chapters/Reports/Wikimedia_Nederland/201403
 .

 It is also included as text in this message.



 *COMMUNITY: supporting and mobilising volunteers and editors*

 · DBpedia - WikiData meeting

 Volunteers working on the DBPedia project met with volunteers working on
 Wikidata at the WMNL office to discuss cooperation and synergy between the
 projects.

 · Zurich Hackathon

 Three volunteers applied for and received scholarships to attend the
 Wikimedia Hackathon in Zürich.



 *WORK: content, collaboration and activity development*

 · Education Programme

 WMNL wants to explore the feasibility of developing a successful education
 programme in the Netherlands. Following a brainstorming meeting with
 interested community members, we issued a call for tender asking proposals
 concerning a first exploratory feasibility study. We received 7 responses
 and selected a small consultancy with a good track record in the education
 field. As a first step, they will interview key stakeholders. A meeting
 with the community is planned on May 24. More information, including the
 proposal of the 'winning' consultants can be found on the project page on
 the WMNL wiki.

 · Wiki Loves Earth

 WMNL is organising a Wiki Loves Earth competition in the Netherlands as
 part of wider drive to improve content and coverage of issues related to
 nature, wildlife and biodiversity in the Wikimedia projects. A group of
 volunteers is taking the lead in organising a series of activities in May.
 This will be done in cooperation with the Dutch National Parks.  A series
 of activities are in preparation, including workshops on uploading images
 and sounds, writing events and photo-safaris.

 · World War II: photos of war monuments

 This year, improving and adding to content on the Wikimedia projects
 related to World War II is a priority for WMNL. As a first step a group of
 volunteers is organising a photo-drive to obtain images of all war
 monuments in the Netherlands. WMNL cooperates with the Nationaal Comité 4
 en 5 mei (the official organisation in charge of remembrance). The
 photo-drive kicked off April 1. (Spoiler: on April 15, already 677 images
 had been uploaded.)

 · Other

 On March 10, Frans Grijzenhout and Wikipedian in Residence Hay Kranen
 demonstrated working with Wikipedia for students of the Social science dept
 of the University of Amsterdam. The students (bachelor level) take part in
 a special honors program. The theme of their course is crowd findings. On
 March 20, Ziko van Dijk presented Wikipedia issues at the IPON fair for
 educational resources, in the Utrecht Jaarbeurs.

 *WMNL*

 · General Assembly and Board elections

 On March 29, there was a WMNL General Assembly, which included Board
 Elections. Chair Ziko van Dijk and Treasurer Paul Becherer stepped down,
 both after having served on the Board for a good many years. Frans
 Grijzenhout, Ad Huikeshoven en Jan Anton Brouwer were re-elected. They were
 joined on the Board by newcomers André Engels, Ronn Boef, Marlon Thé and
 Justus de Bruijn.

 The General Assembly also approved the annual report and the accountsof
 WMNL.

 · Newsletter

 An issue of the newsletter was sent out.



 *FUNDING*

 · A private grant making foundation donated €30,000 to WMNL. This
 is in support of our planned work with public libraries (with a possible
 focus on Dutch literature and writers) and a pilot project to provide
 access to relevant Wikipedia articles via image recognition of objects in a

[Wikimedia-l] Documentation of the Wikimedia Conference 2014

2014-04-15 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Hi Wikimedians,

on behalf of the Documentation Team of the Wikimedia Conference 2014 I'm
happy to announce that we published all the minutes and photos of all
sessions, as far as they were available and ready. Check them out on https
://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference_2014/Documentation.

We tried to summarise the sessions (too long, didn't read). However,
sometimes this was not possible due to the most different opinions.
Furthermore, you find most of the presentation slides and photos of the
Conference on Wikimedia Commons (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki
/Category:Wikimedia_Conference_2014)

Any comments, any questions, drop me a line.

Best regards
Cornelius

on behalf of the Documentation Team of the conference
(Benjamin, Conny, Lukas and Cornelius)

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Purpose of WMConf ( was: Cost of Wikimedia Conference 2014)

2014-04-02 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Yes, finally the discussion we need!  Pity that it happens only one week
before the conference itself.

My point of view:
We have different types of conference: GLAMCamp, EduWiki, Wikimania,
whatever.

Beside Wikimania, which is quite a fruit salad of topics and themes and
seen as *the* gathering of the global Wikimedia community, all of thoses
confereces have quite a special, limited scope. I see the Wikimedia
Conference as the highly political, meta level conference. This is the only
meeting in the year where we can discuss governance, strategy, movement
politics issues only, excluding all the programmatic work. As it is the
only meeting of this type during the year, at least a part of the programme
team tried to keep all the sessions in this meta scope. We felt a need for
those topics, which can't be discussed at those other meetings.

Obviously, it doesn't seem to be so clear for many people. Maybe the
majority even thinks that we don't even need that type of conference. Who
knows.., all discussion adressing this issue fizzled out in the last three
past.

However, please think about this! It's important. At the conference we'll
have a special session about this, the session is called actually Future
of the Wikimedia Conference. We need input from everyone to see how we
should continue and what should happen next year.

Best
Cornelius

  I am genuinely puzzled as to why, if nobody on the WMUK board (such as
  the CEO or the current Chairman) is sure what the purpose of the
  conference is, they should chose to invest the donor's money in
  sending 5 trustees and 3 full time employees to it (presumably the
  employees are being paid for their time rather than going as
  volunteers).
 
 
 Just to be clear, I know what the benefits we will get out of it are, and I
 can tell you the direction that I would like the conference to take in
 future; I'm just wondering whether others have the same perception.

 This is not a new question, as Nathan has pointed out, and he is probably
 right to say it is best to continue it here;

 hello,

 below I'm copying the letter I've just sent to Sue on behalf of the Funds
 Dissemination Committee, related to the way we see WMF should participate
 in the FDC process.

 A little background:

 In the first year, the WMF submitted part of its annual plan 2012-2013
 budget as its proposal to the FDC. WMF also submitted the proposal for its
 current fiscal year, so when the proposal was funded, implementation of
 that plan had been ongoing for six months. Reviewing a partial plan and
 after implementation had started was ultimately not deemed viable neither
 by the FDC nor by WMF.

 In April 2013 the Board, WMF and FDC agreed that WMF budget for 2013-2014
 should not be handled by FDC in Round 1 2013-2014, in order not to repeat
 to discuss a plan under implementation. Instead it was agreed that FDC
 should discuss WMF budget in Round 2 2013-2014, in this case then the WMF
 budget for 2014-2015.

 After internal considerations within FDC and discussion with key
 stakeholders including Sue herself, FDC has now taken the below position
 regarding WMF participation in FDC process.

 Dariusz Jemielniak (pundit)

 Subject: WMF in FDC process
 To: Sue Gardner sgard...@wikimedia.org


 Dear Sue,

 I am writing to you to present the FDC's view on WMF participation in the
 FDC process. We believe that it would be best if the FDC was commenting on
 the whole WMF budget, in its 1.4 or 1.5 version, and recommending
 cuts/increases basing on the overall evaluation of the plan (while pointing
 to specific areas, when appropriate).

 The advantages of the approach are numerous:

- It goes along the same lines as chapters are treated,
- It gives opportunity to comment on any part that the FDC is interested
in,
- It is not limited by a fixed amount or percentage - gives us more
decision power and influence,
- It better allows the whole community the opportunity to participate in
an organized review if the WMF budget.

 The proposed approach clearly shows that WMF does not get a
 special/preferential treatment. What is even better is that it takes a lot
 of burden from the finance department (much less preparations specifically
 for the FDC process).

 We understand that to make this project work, ideally the timeline for
 application should change. Thus, we would recommend that the timeline
 shifts by a month, from March submissions of proposals to April
 submissions. The initial checkup with several entities who might apply in
 Round 2 indicates that it should not pose a problem for them.

 best,


 on behalf of the Funds Dissemination Committee

Just a small formal question: is there any reason why Amical as a thematic

But maybe that's a further question, whether Thematic Organizations and
User Groups are invited or not..

2013-09-18 Thread Cornelius Kibelka
Vince,

That may be true. But maybe you remember that Nicole some months ago tried
to initiate a discussion process about the Conference, almost nobody
replied or was engaged in the discussion.

So now we have to hurry up, if we want a conference or a meeting at all in
early 2014. After that or even at the Conference itself we can discuss the
future of this type of gathering.

I think, personally, an Affiliate conference is absolutely necessary. The
design of the conference itself is up to the future programme committee. Of
course, as you suggest, more thematic slots are (more) useful instead of
the three days talking about the state of the chapters. However, that's an
other discussion.

Best
Cornelius

   Dear Wikimedia friends,
  
   following up on the emails Asaf and I sent a few weeks ago, I have now
   drafted the bidding process to decide upon the location for next
   year’s Wikimedia Conference. This event will not only host the annual
   Chapters’/Affiliates’ conference, but also the WMF board, FDC and
   AffCom meetings and is meant to take place in April 2014 (tbc).
  
  
  
 
 https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Future_of_the_Wikimedia_Conference#Bidding_process_for_hosting_the_next_Wikimedia_Conference
  
   == LOCATION COMMITTEE ==
   I would like to see a small location committee (3 representatives of
   affiliates, 1 AffCom and 1 WMF) to decide about the hosting chapter.
   Asaf and Bence already agreed upon joining the committee, and it would
   be nice to see someone from WMIT there, as they have the freshest
   experience. So if you have severe experience with conference
   organisation, please consider joining the committee now!
  
   == WANNA HOST WMCON 2014? ==
   All chapters who are interested in organising the conference in 2014
   are invited to place a short bid on Meta. The bids should be made
   until 30 September, a decision should be available before 15 October.
   The winning organisation will be responsible for all the logistics, as
   in: venue, catering, travel and visa arrangements, accommodation,
   technical equipment, social events, communication with and support for
   the participants, coordination with the programme committee and the
   facilitators.
  
   I hope that if we can take the logistics and location for granted,
   this will help us focus on the content and sustainability of the
   event. I have written more about the programme part on Meta.
  
   Thanks to Asaf and Bence for giving their valuable input to the set-up
   of this process. Since WMDE has kind of a traditional interest in
   having a good conference, I am happy to take a leading role in
   organising this process. Any help is highly appreciated! I am looking
   forward to an exciting Wikimedia Conference 2014. \o/

  The problem is, it's hard to know if you are interested in the report
  without having any idea what it contains. A short summary, or at least a
  list of contents, helps you decide whether to click on the link or not.
 (If
  the report is already a fairly short summary, just include the whole

 that we have our first employee, which is very exciting for us, but also
 brings a lot of responsibilities.

 So, the office is located in Bulevar Kralja Aleksandra (King Alexander

 on the National Assembly building, the main post office building, church of
 Saint Mark and Trg Nikole Pašića, one of the two central squares. Anyone
 who's been to Belgrade can attest that this is one of the most central and

 The office space is about 95 square meters and we're still in the process
 of buying furniture and equipment, but our conference room is pretty much
 set. We'll use the antechamber (which is quite large by itself) to display
 the 15 finalist photos from the WLM contest 2012 (we've just had a ceremony
 of announcing winners and exhibiting them in a local gallery).

 Our employee is Mile Kiš, our General Secretary. He's been a tremendous
 help for us in the past years and he's been doing more than full time work
 for us as a volunteer, so I'm especially glad that he's going to be able to
 help us as an employee, as well as be able to work on his personal
 professionalization.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Funds Dissemination Committee recommendation - Summary update, translation requested

2012-05-27 Thread Jaan-Cornelius Kibelka
Hi Meera,

I translated the summary to German. For me, this translation tool is quite
new and still I don't understand why a part of my translation is still
marked as outdated (

Can somebody help me regarding this problem?

Thanks  cheers,

Cornelius

 Dear Wikimedia Community,

 As many of you know, a deep discussion has been happening on Meta over the
 past few weeks about the design of the new Funds Dissemination Committee.
  For those of you who haven't followed along in great detail, we've created
 a short summary of the goals of the work and the recommendation that is
 emerging.

 The link to this summary is here [1]. (See the full draft resolution here
 [2] and the corresponding discussion here[3]).

 Three requests:
 * Please read the summary, as this has important implications for future
 funding within the movement
 * Please forward it along to any lists or communities that you think
 should be aware of this work
 * Please translate it or ask others to translate it so that other
 communities can stay up to date as well.  To date, the majority of this
 discussion has happened in English and we are eager to share this update in
 other languages as well.

 Thanks in advance for helping us on this! As always, let me know if you
 have any questions.

 Best,
 Meera

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Public Google Calendar for IRC office hours

2012-05-04 Thread Jaan-Cornelius Kibelka
Come on, Michael, do you know a better solution? If there's no open source
solution, Google Calender is the easiest way to fulfill the needs.

 You cannot be serious. A google calendar for this? Fail. Completely.

 Please let us know when there is an open source, freely licensed,
 community edited calendar available. Y'know, a solution that follows
 Wikimedia's main principles?

  Hi everyone,
 
  Per a great suggestion from Jan-Bart, I have created a public Google
  Calendar that anyone can subscribe to for IRC office hours:

  If this isn't working for anyone, let me know offlist.
