Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Wmfall] Sharing sad news about Bassel

2017-08-02 Thread Ivan Martínez
Dear all. Sad and terrible news for the movement.

Just want to be sure about if Wikimedia Foundation and/or Jimmy Wales
Foundation have proofs of Bassel's death. Some international conventions
about forced disappearance have protocols to talk in public and confirm
this terrible cases. One of that protocols is talk about "forced
disappeared" victims until families have a scientific confirmation from an
official source. In many cases around the world governments or other
persons use rumors to undermine morale of the families of the victims and
organizations around them or force to the victim to be abandoned.

While we don't have that kind of confirmation for respect we must insist to
refer our colleague as "dissapeared".

Best,

Also we can support from our corner sending tweets and e-mails to our local

support us with a hasthag? I posted #WikipediaSansürlendi but maybe is

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Politics

2017-02-03 Thread Ivan Martínez
I may write this biased message from my place of enunciation: a country
that has been threatened for several days directly by the decisions of the
President of the United States.

Only if you were a follower of Trump would you see unnecessary a proactive
defense of potential damage to people both from our community and the
Foundation staff. Personally, reading a statement from Katherine Maher let
me know that in front of threats, people in your movement will react. Let's
not be deluded, Trump's decision-making route over the past few weeks
(outside privacy, airport reviews) will sooner or later lead to a threat to
the Wikimedia Foundation. And we must be prepared.

And please, let's leave the false dilemma that as a Wikimedia movement we
should not take political positions because of Wikipedia neutrality. They
are different things clearly.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Free Basics

2015-12-30 Thread Ivan Martínez
In Mexico Virgin Mobile is offering since December 11 this service and of
course Wikipedia is announced as a part of the offer. With an intentional
way, in my opinion, because although our free licenses that allow reuse of
the Wikipedia contents, communication of this criticized service seems to
be an alliance that take advantage of the moral quality of Wikipedia to
attract confidence.

There are few voices[1] that point how Free Basics is an enemy of freedom
of internet as Electronic Frontier Foundation [2], Mexican NGO Red en
Defensa de los Derechos Digitales [3], Chilean NGO Derechos Digitales [4]
among others.

Will be nice if we can start the discussion as community and movement and
take action. I don't know if WMF have something in plans about Free Basics.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Commons-l] TPP - copyright

2015-11-07 Thread Ivan Martínez
Hi, there's a lot of review and analyze about TPP because not only in the
States we will have potential strong legal modifications. In Wikimedia
Mexico we are aware since one year ago at least following the analysis of
other NGOs devoted to internet freedom and copyright which can be a
potential risk to Wikimedia mission.

The main issue in the next days is that the extension of the revealed text
needs to have much analysis to have clear points that can be potential
risks to our mission.

Thanks,

Our volunteers will work in the next months in the closed caption of each
talk. Will be very nice if we can have many translations many languages as
possible.

We have pending only the publication of the Wikimania 15 documentary, that
will be premiered soon at National Film Archive of Mexico (Cineteca

  Hello everyone,
 
  After three great years working at the foundation, the time has come
 to
  say goodbye.
 
  I will be leaving WMF at the end of June, to spend more time with my
  family, focus on personal art projects and consult part-time on worthy
  causes.
 
  I would like to thank all the community and team members I have had
 the
  pleasure to work with over the years. It has been an honor to serve
 our
  movement together — and to help our contributors share free knowledge
  with
  each other and the world.
 
  I’m particularly grateful to Katherine Maher and our WMF
 communications
  team for being such wonderful collaborators. I really enjoyed working
  with
  them to manage and edit the Wikimedia blog, help grow our team and
  publish
  some great stories together, to celebrate the heroes of our movement.
 
  Going forward, WMF's Juliet Barbara will manage the Wikimedia blog, in
  close collaboration with Ed Erhart. As many of you know, Ed is the
 former
  editor-in-chief of the Wikipedia Signpost and has now joined our team
 for
  the summer. I've worked with him for nearly a month now and find him
  uniquely qualified for this project. Starting today, please contact
 them
  directly with any questions about the blog (they are Cc:d on this
  message).
 
  After June 30, you can reach me at fabriceflo...@gmail.com
 javascript:; — or follow
  me on Twitter ( @fabriceflorin ) or on my blog (
  http://fabriceflorin.com
  ).
 
  The last three years have been an incredible experience for me, and I
 am
  grateful for all that I have learned from so many of you. You’ve been
 an
  inspiration to me and I have many fond memories of our time together.
 I
  wish you all the best with the next chapter of the Wikimedia movement
 and
  can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with next.
 
  Best regards,
 
 
  Fabrice

I think it's relevant for the Spanish speaking countries. In my country the

Príncipe de Asturias) is compared frequently to the Nobel Prize for the

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Announcement: WMF to file suit against the NSA

2015-03-10 Thread Ivan Martínez
That's great!
Pending for translation.


2015-03-10 10:21 GMT-06:00 Pete Forsyth petefors...@gmail.com:

 There's a relevant research project outlined on Meta, about HTTPS:

 https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Wikimedia_referrer_policy

 Here's the nutshell description:

 Since we started switching to HTTPS and an increasing portion of inbound
 traffic happens over SSL, Wikimedia sites stopped advertising themselves as
 sources of referred traffic to external sites. While this is a literal
 implication of HTTPS, it means that Wikimedia's impact on traffic directed
 to other sites is becoming largely invisible: *is Wikimedia turning into a
 large source of dark traffic?* I review a use case (traffic directed to
 CrossRef) and discuss how other top web properties deal with this issue by
 adopting a so-called Referrer Policy.

 I don't know anything about this beyond what I've read on Meta, but I think
 it offers some useful background for this discussion.

   (For non-technical readers: the HTTP protocol is the normal way to send
   around information on the web. HTTPS is the secure way of sending said
   information, adding encryption among other things, to avoid
  eavesdropping.)
  
   HTTP traffic can easily be tracked by people sharing the same network,
 by
   your Internet service provider and so on. If one cares about privacy,
  HTTPS
   is always important. It's worth noting that the NSA is not the only
   government agency in the world. I'd be even more worried about a number
  of
   countries where there would be little chance to fight the intruding
 party
   in the courtroom.
  
   Side note: you could probably track most HTTPS traffic to Wikipedia as
   well, even if you're not the NSA. Normally you would see that the user
  has
   accessed Wikipedia, but not which article. A way around that would be
 to
   let a spider (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_crawler) track the
 byte
   size of Wikipedia articles, which should be individual enough as soon
 as
   images are involved and compare it to the size of the page the user
 just
   accessed. If two articles happen to be of exactly the same size,
 compare
   with incoming and outgoing wiki links and see if the user accessed any
  page
   linking to or linked from one the articles to determine which one. But
 it
   would at least take some sort of effort, and wouldn't be perfect.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia Announcements] Announcement: A new structure for WMF Community Engagement

2015-02-19 Thread Ivan Martínez
Well, It's a sad announcement. Anasuya personally I think the goodbyes are
not overrated. Thanks for your kindly way of be, and the energy to push the
mission in other level. Wikimedia is not important but your sooner recovery
are the most and I hope all it will be solved.

And welcome to the new team!

 Anasuya,

 Thanks so much for all your support and I'm personally so obliged to you
 for being with us during the rough phase of WMF-CIS transition. It will be
 sad to see you go but I'm sure you'll always be part of this great
 community. Hope for your quick recovery. And I'm always up to join for
 having Uttara Kannada delicacies when you're here. :)

 Luis and Siko, congratulations for your new roles and looking forward to
 see you all soon!

 best,

  Dear friends and colleagues, fellow adventurers on the Wikimedia

 journey

 -

 Goodbyes are overrated.[1] But since I’m sure this will be au revoir,

 I’ll

 continue: I am leaving the Foundation as head of the Grantmaking
 department, at the end of March. This was not an easy decision to make;
 this is not an easy email to write.

 As some of you know, I have been battling health issues over the past

 few

 months. I’ve learnt sharp and intimate truths about myself as I’ve

 worked

 to get better, and what I’ve kept coming back to is the compassionate

 but

 fierce feminist slogan around self-care and sustainability: ‘what’s the
 point of the revolution if we can’t dance?’[2] To reassure you all, I

 will

 be well,[3] but I need a little time and space to focus on getting my
 dancing legs strong again.

 That said, I am pleased that we have a really solid plan in place as I
 leave. As Lila’s email announced, Luis Villa (our current Deputy

 General

 Counsel) will be taking over the team effective immediately, and

 leading

 the organisation further in our support of Wikimedia communities

 worldwide.

 Luis brings with him a range of skills and qualities that I know will

 stand

 him, the team, and the movement in wonderful stead through it all. As a
 friend and colleague, I am so delighted to be supporting Luis through

 the

 next few weeks of transition.

 I joined the Foundation in July 2012 to oversee and implement the FDC
 process. Since then, I’ve had the privilege of creating and leading a
 department of more than twenty remarkable and passionate people who

 care

 about our mission, our communities, and the resources needed to match

 the

 two.

 We went from Asaf managing a small grants portfolio on his own, ably
 supported on occasion by Winifred, to a fully fledged grantmaking
 department with a spectrum of monetary and non-monetary resources. We

 have

 been able to offer these in different ways to different parts of our
 movement: to individual volunteers with great ideas in need of project
 management, to small groups experimenting with new initiatives, and to
 established organisations who form critical content and policy

 partnerships

 in their local contexts. We built an infrastructure for understanding

Congratulations to the WMF staff involved in the report!
Happy to collaborate in translation to Spanish.


2015-01-22 9:59 GMT-06:00 Liam Wyatt liamwy...@gmail.com:

  If you look at the Wiki version here:
 https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation/Annual_Report/2013-14

 The very first line says:
 This report is a work in progress, you are welcome to translate but there
 will be some updates and additions during the next few days. Thank you!

 It is perfectly reasonable that the WMF should publish the master edition
 first and then translations come soon afterwards... In the past there have
 sometimes been small errors that the community has discovered in the
 original that, because translations were launched simultaneously (and in
 hardcopy too), they were not as easy to correct across multiple versions.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Fundraising campaign update

What a wonderful news, Megan!
We will sharing with our social media channels this inspiring quotes.

2014-12-15 18:25 GMT-06:00 Megan Hernandez mhernan...@wikimedia.org:

 Hi everyone,

 We are two weeks into the English fundraising campaign.  We've had
 incredible support from our community of readers these past two weeks and
 we are thankful to everyone who has contributed so far.

 We have raised roughly $18 million from 1.6 million readers since we
 launched the campaign on December 2nd. This number is preliminary as
 donations are still coming in and settling in our accounts. The team is on
 track to reach the $20 million campaign goal this month.

 Banners have been showing to all readers these past two weeks.  At this
 point, we are starting to limit the number of banners each reader sees. We
 will run the campaign at a higher traffic level again at the end of
 December for a final year-end push.

 Thank you again for your support.  I also want to thank everyone on the
 fundraising team as well as staff and community members who have worked on
 the campaign.  We work incredibly hard throughout the entire year, but
 there has been exceptional effort the last month.  Thank you.

 One of my favorite parts about the campaign is reading the notes from our
 readers.  Please take a moment to read through some of these comments.  And
 thank you for making Wikipedia a treasured resource that people are happy
 to support :)

 Quotes from Wikipedia readers:

 --I consider Wikipedia one of the few (the only?) big internet company who
 are actually trustworthy. I value Wikipedia and I want to support it

 --Wikipedia is too valuable to be taken for granted. Donating is for me an
 act of fairness, responsibility, and gratitude.

 --I read a comic about a Wikipedia-Comcast merger. It was terrifying.

 --Keep doing what you are doing. I love Wikipedia. My most visited site by
 a mile. Any time I watch a new documentary, nature show, or read a book
 about a topic I find fascinating, I always Wikipedia the information.
 Irreplaceable!

 --It's so convenient to pop onto the computer (Wikipedia) and find out
 almost anything I want to know. Sure beats the old encyclopedias I grew up
 with. It's helpful with medical advice and also, at my age, when you can't
 think of a name of somebody famous, etc. It makes life easier to find out
 RIGHT NOW instead of waiting for your brain to compute the answer 3 days
 later.

 --Very helpful! As a nursing student I frequently use Wikipedia to
 reference science and engineering topics so I can get a deeper
 understanding concepts and extra learning. Ilove it. As a young child in
 the early 1960s I thought that computers were going to be giant machines
 you could ask any question and get answers, Wikipedia is that machine! It's
 wonderful! Just sharing.

 --It's 10pm and I have to write a history essay. I'd love to sit and tell
 you about all the times Wikipedia saved my ass by giving me quick start
 points on projects. I simply love Wikipedia, keep it up guys! :)

 --It can finish a debate in a couple of clicks

 --Reduces intellectual irritation: Whenever, I encounter a word I don't
 know or am fuzzy about, I look it up on Wiki; whenever I need facts to
 resolve a political, religious, scientific or technical question, Wiki is
 there.

 --Once upon a time far far away I wanted a set of encyclopedias, but, alas
 I could not afford them. Wikipedia now fills that void.

 --I visit and utilize Wikipedia multiple times every week, sometimes daily.
 Going to Wikipedia has become second nature to me. It is synonymous with
 knowledge - there's nothing more profound. I support it with the small

 We have lots of videos in:

 but many, while no doubt useful for their educational content, are not
 the kind of things to show to a lay audience - either the quality is
 not high enough, or the content is too specific.

 I'm looking for things with impact, like

 Peru which wrote the Wikipedia article for its village.
 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOUOnIabrRE  Tec de Monterrey had the

 the Mati Wiki pilot project (

 So videos can have an impact!

 cooperation with Wikimedia Norge, the Nobel Peace Center
 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nobel_Peace_Center has invited Wikipedians
 from the Norwegian Wikipedia community to an editathon to improve the
 article about the winner(s?) as soon as possible. We'll be sitting
 practically in the next room from where the announcement is made, updating
 relevant articles as fast as we can.

 For this to be a global event, I'd like to invite anyone who's interested
 to join us in the IRC channel #wikipedia-nobel
 irc://freenode/#wikipedia-nobel, where we'll be talking and coordinating.
 We'll also try to livetweet the event using the hashtag #wikinobel
 https://twitter.com/hashtag/wikinobel, probably mainly from the account
 @WikimediaNorge https://twitter.com/WikimediaNorge.

 The press conference will be start around 10:30 Norwegian time, which is

[Wikimedia-l] Mexico facts about Wikipedia

2014-08-14 Thread Ivan Martínez
Hi folks,

For any interested, today appear in the blog Codigo Espagueti[1] a survey
about the trust in Wikipedia and the use both in Mexico and the United
States. Some facts:


   - 60% of people with internet access in Mexico has heard about Wikipedia.
   - 82% are very or somewhat confident. In contrast, only 16% have little
   or no credibility.
   - In Mexico 59% use this site to learn about different topics and 53% in
   USA.

The blog post does not indicate the method of the survey, but is a
interesting exercise.

Cheers.

  Hey,
 
  I'm very excited to share that last night, we received the award at an
  event presence with of hundreds of guests (Picture of the award:
 
 https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Roaring_Lion_2014_award_to_Wikimedia_Israel.jpg
  )
 
  The Roaring Lion competition is an award for excellence within Israel's
  communications and public relations industry awarded by the Israel Public
  Relations Associations. The campaign was chosen among many, judged by a
  committee of public relations executives, academics and public figures.
 
  Last July the Hebrew Wikipedia celebrated her 10th anniversary. The
  celebrations were followed by massive press coverage - TV radio, internet
  and print. You can give a look on some of them in our Press Book:
 
 
 https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9iobJg3Vpp0bDdKaDExNmU2VEU/edit?usp=sharing
 
  The strategy was to show the volunteers – the people behind the projects,
  so each cover presented another volunteer. To show the power of Wikipedia
  we collected a lot of numbers such the most viewed articles of the last 5
  years, numbers of edits, words and many others – which leads to many
 items
  covering the history of HEWP.
 
  But besides arranging massive coverage for the celebrations we were
  looking for a special way to celebrate – to do something that has never
  been done before. The result was a unique collaboration with TV Channel
 2,
  the most viewed channel in Israel! For an entire week, five of the most
  senior Channel 2 reporters, who learned to edit Wikipedia by our
  volunteers, wrote or extended an article on Hebrew Wikipedia. Then, each
  recorded a one minute video, explaining why they have decided to write on
  this specific topic. Every day, just before the evening news broadcast,
 the
  video was broadcasted and while the anchor presented the project, he
  explained we wanted to celebrate Wikipedia’s 10th anniversary and show
  that everyone can write an article on Wikipedia. Happy Birthday
 Wikipedia!”
 
  Due the success of the project Channel 2 decided to broadcast it all over
  again on the week after. According to the ratings records 2.033 million
  people (cumulatively) watched the project. On the celebrations month
 pages
  views on Hebrew Wikipedia showed increase of 12% (compare to 1%
  internationally) and increase of 12% in new articles (compare to 14%
  internationally decrease).
 
  You can watch them the videos (translated to English) on our Youtube
  Channel:
  https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLuQcXKjU3rwJ-TOL8lyru7oHvoufnWtED
 
  I wish to thank all the volunteers who take part making this happen, to
  the Wikimedia Israel team, and to Gidoen Amichay who supported and helped
  lead the Channel 2 cooperation.

 Dear fellow community members,

 On behalf of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees I am delighted to
 announce that the new Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation will
 be Lila Tretikov. Lila is a widely respected Bay Area technology leader,
 most recently with SugarCRM.

 As many of you know, about a year ago Sue Gardner announced she planned
 to step down as our ED. As we launched the search for her successor, we
 spent some time working through the most critical requirements for the
 role. We decided the new ED should be someone with a product/engineering
 background, ideally in an open-source or other online community context. We
 wanted someone experienced with organisations that were growing, who'd
 managed staff and budgets comparable to ours, and who had experience
 creating continuous delivery of technology improvements in an agile
 context. We wanted a person who is oriented towards collaboration,
 transparency and openness, with some experience with complex stakeholder
 environments, and with an international orientation. We knew we needed
 someone with courage and strong personal integrity, who wouldn't be
 intimidated by attempts to censor the projects.

 Lila is precisely what we set out to find.

 Lila was born in the Soviet Union and moved to the United States alone,
 as a teenager. She's been working for technology companies, primarily in
 open source, in the Bay Area for the past 15 years. In 1999 she started her
 career at Sun Microsystems. Shortly afterwards she founded GrokDigital, a
 technology and design company. She spent three years as senior director of
 development at Telespree, a company that provides cloud-based wireless data
 services for mobile carriers. For the past eight years, she was at
 SugarCRM, where she held positions of increasing responsibility as the
 organization grew, including being in charge of internal IT, marketing,
 customer support and professional services, engineering, and product
 development. She has a stellar reputation as a leader who is highly
 skilled, collaborative, open, passionate and curious.

 We think Lila will be a terrific fit for the ED role. The Transition Team
 (Phoebe, Alice, Kat, Sue, Erik, Geoff, Gayle and I) voted unanimously to
 recommend her to the Board, and the Board voted unanimously to accept the
 recommendation. She strikes all of us as smart, brave and unpretentious,
 and we believe she has the skills the WMF needs.

 Lila is going to spend the next few weeks in learning-and-listening mode,
 and will take over the ED position from Sue at the end of the month. Her
 first priority will be to immerse herself in deepening her understanding of
 the Wikimedia projects.

 I want to close this announcement by saying a heartfelt and deeply
 appreciative thanks to Sue, who has been the Executive Director of the
 Wikimedia Foundation for the past seven years. When the Board and I hired
 Sue in 2007, we were just a chaotic little non-profit in small-town
 Florida, with a tiny staff and not much money. Over the past seven years,
 Sue's leadership has built the Foundation into an effective, well-funded
 and well-managed organisation, with integrity and a clear sense of purpose,
 and her steady and committed presence throughout the search process was
 integral in helping us come to this excellent result. We will be forever
 grateful for her leadership and vision, and I hope we can continue to rely
 on her support in the months and years ahead.

 In June Sue will move into a new role as a special advisor to me and
 Lila. She'll also take a well-earned holiday, and maybe even a bit of a
 wiki-break, before beginning to think about what she's going to do next.
 Many of us will get a chance to see her in London, at Wikimania, in August.

 The Wikimedia Foundation is delighted to have reached such a successful
 outcome to the search. My thanks to Lisa Grossman of m/Oppenheim for
 helping us with it, and I ask you to please join me in extending a warm
 welcome to Lila Tretikov, our new ED.

 I find it difficult to believe it would be that bad. Yes, it might causes
 some issues if it turned out that a bid won because it was the least
 worst
 and was actually still very unpopular with the jury. However, I think
 people
 understand that no bid is ever perfect and wouldn't expect every jury
 decision on who hosts Wikimania to be unanimous.

 At the very least there should be a written explanation on what the
 strengths of the winning bid were, and what the problems of those that
 didn't were. This has been done in past years and would help prevent
 mistakes being repeated. Also, since Wikimania is a public conference, I
 think those that attend it and support it deserve to know why and how it
 gets to be hosted in a particular place.

 As someone who has followed the bidding process over multiple years, I
 think
 it is fair to say that communication between the jury and the community
 during the bidding process has not been as good this year as in previous
 years. I believe improving this should be a priority for the next round of
 bidding for 2016. As a member of the Scholarship Committee, I note that the
 scholarships process was in the past criticized for just the same issue and
 that has now been rectified, and from my perspective doing so has improved
 community confidence in the process.

 Kind regards,
 Christopher

 No, Aya, I don't think there will be a public report - I don't think it's
 happened in previous years.

 I for one would not be happy with making my marking grid public because the
 bidders didn't know that the marking grids were going to be made public -
 and for that matter, neither did I! I am also a little worried about being
 second-guessed by the community at large. Imagine, *for example,* if the
 jury was split down the middle, with half hating the Mexico bid and half
 loving it: it could be very damaging for the volunteer team morale to show
 that not everyone supported them, and it might damage the conference.
 Perhaps in future it would be a good thing to do...

 However, I see where you're coming from - it would be good to have feedback
 on the individual bids for posterity's sake, and to make sure that mistakes
 or omissions aren't repeated in future...

Thanks to all for your kindly regards and comments :)

Steven, concerning to the public safety, our city are different from the
known issues of the northern states of the country. In the link you quote
for United States citizens are properly pointed for Mexico City: no
advisory is in effect. Also, the Centro Historico area (the venue are in
the north of this Downtown area) is safe for tourism. But we will have in
addition the special support and coordination with the Mexico City
authorities for more vigilance and a special operative for reduce any risk
to the minimum in the venue and their perimeter.

 Not a small concern.  But, I should point out, one that we've dealt with
 before.  We had laptops stolen in Argentina, and physical safety concerns
 in Alexandria, as I recall.  I say this not to put a panacea of oh, there

 that I know that Garfield and Elle, and the rest of the WMF team working on
 this will consider and keep in mind. :-)

 My absence wasn't related to Wikimedia. It was about first world

 from the second to the first world problems would be painful. Few
 years ago I'd have called it decadence.

 So, lesson learned.

 Anyway, I thought that I would see something completely different here
 and was worried a bit about my ability to adapt. But, I see that
 everything is as it was. Good old heated debates. And known [virtual]

[Wikimedia-l] Letter of support from WM-MX board to Patricio Lorente 2014 candidacy

2014-04-11 Thread Ivan Martínez
Dear members of the Wikimedia movement:

Wikimedia México supports Patricio Lorente's candidacy to a second term as
a member of the Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation. We believe
that Patricio's role as a trustee has been active and truly representative
of our chapter's vision on Wikimedia's governance.

He has also been a relevant actor within the movement towards the
generation of a perspective from Spanish-speaking chapters. Wikimedia
México has had in Patricio a confident conversation partner about our
worries on the Wikimedia movement.

In our view, a movement with global reach should be represented by people
with a free, open, fair and equitable view. Those qualities are present in
Patricio.

We are pleased to have the kind of support he provides us: he is always
ready to collaborate, to advise us on how he believes we can enhance our
role within Wikimedia and, since many years ago, to encourage us to be bold
in our performance as a chapter. It is no accident that over the last years
the Spanish-speaking environment has acquired more relevance within the
Wikimedia movement, what is also worth mentioning.

However, Patricio mustn't be seen as an exclusively Latin option, because
his performance accounts to the basic philosophy of all members of the
Wikimedia movement, and is based on principles that we all recognize as
ours: collaboration, solidarity and good faith. Patricio's presence in the
Board of Trustees reminds the movement, in a constant way, the principles
over it is founded.

Patricio has always been a friend ready to help, kind and dedicated to the
Wikimedia mission in a transparent and legitimate way. That is something
that should permeate all and every one of us who integrates this movement.
Sincerely,

The Board of Wikimedia Mexico: Iván Martínez, Gustavo Sandoval Kingwergs,
Carmen Alcázar, Salvador Alcántar, Alan Lazalde, José Flores.

You can read the letter here:

Hey folks,
   
I'm pleased to announce we've hired a Chief Communications Officer
 for
   the
Wikimedia Foundation, replacing Jay Walsh who left us in October. Our
  new
head of communications will be Katherine Maher, and she will join us
 on
   14
April, reporting to me.
   
Katherine comes to the WMF from Washington DC, where she was Advocacy
Director for the global digital rights organization Access. At
 Access,
   she
was responsible for all media and communications work, including
communications between the organization and its 350,000 members. She
  also
handled coalition work and advocacy efforts and urgent global threats
  to
digital rights, participated in the organization's strategic
 planning,
   and
was deeply involved with the production of RightsCon.
   
Before Access, Katherine worked on the launch of the Open Development
Technology Alliance at the World Bank, and was a program manager for
internet freedom projects at the National Democratic Institute.
  Earlier,
she worked on the UniWiki initiative for the UNICEF Innovation team,
intended to improve MediaWiki's usability for people who were new to
computer use, using early-model technology, or connecting in
   low-bandwidth
environments. Through her career she's been a frequent media
  spokesperson
and writer of op-eds and other media materials.
   
Katherine has lived and worked in nine countries and visited many
 more.
   She
is a native speaker of English, and has a basic knowledge of French,
   Arabic
and German.
   
The purpose of the CCO role is to ensure fast, easy information flow
   about
Wikimedia in multiple languages, both internally within the movement
  and
outside of it, and I think Katherine will be a wonderful fit for that
   work.
Her experiences advocating for the rights of ordinary internet users
  and
communicating with a large global volunteer community are both rare
 and
directly relevant. She's got a solid understanding of internet
technologies. She's a crisp, clear communicator, and an experienced
spokesperson.
   
I want to thank the people who helped with the interviewing process:
   Geoff
Brigham, Jove Oliver, Gayle Karen Young, David Gerard, Erik Moeller,
  Lisa
Gruwell, Frank Schulenburg, and Jimmy Wales. A special thanks to
 Geoff,
who's ably overseen our communications functions for the past several
years, and to Jay, who's generously filled in when it took us longer
  than
we expected to hire for this role. Geoff and Jay will be helping
   Katherine
get on-boarded, and I know she'll benefit enormously from their
  guidance
and support.
   
Please join me in welcoming Katherine, who's on CC.
   
Thanks,
Sue

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Announcing Anna Torres Adell as new Wikimedia Argentina ED

2014-02-21 Thread Ivan Martínez
Welcome, Anna.
We will very pleased in work together, as Mexico and Argentina are working
since three years.

Best regards.


2014-02-21 15:49 GMT-06:00 Galileo Vidoni gali...@gmail.com:

 Dear movement fellows,

 I'm pleased to announce that Wikimedia Argentina has a new Executive
 Director. Please welcome Anna Torres Adell to our movement!

 Anna was born in Barcelona but settled in Buenos Aires a couple of years
 ago. She is a licentiate in Political Science for the Universitat Pompeu
 Fabra and has post-graduate studies in International Cooperation;
 Management and Control of Public Policies; and Local Development and the
 Social Economy.

 She developed an interest on international cooperation and social matters
 since her teens, helping establish an educational NGO in Guatemala when she
 was just over 20. She has since lived and worked in Spain, México,
 Guatemala and Argentina. Before joining us at Wikimedia Argentina, Anna was
 the ED of PROEM Foundation, an organization aimed at coaching small
 businesses. Anna's track record also includes working with AECID, the
 Spanish agency for international cooperation, and the United Nations
 Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM).

 She has extensive knowledge and experience in the five dimensions that we
 cared the most when recruiting: commitment with the social goal of free
 knowledge, working with volunteers, administration, program management and
 funding.

 Selecting Anna was not easy, but not because we couldn't find the right
 person: We had just too much good EDs we wanted to hire! Thankfully we
 could choose from an important pool of candidates and proceed to evaluate
 thoroughly each one of them. We received over 100 applications, of which
 not less than half were pertinent. We gave all of them a score and made
 successive filtering stages before arriving to the eight people we
 interviewed in person over the last days.

 As you may have read on this list back in January, our decision to hire a
 new ED has to do with Osmar leaving us to return to his home country. Let
 me highlight that this good news could not have been possible without
 Osmar's work and commitment. Not only he helped designing the work
 description for his replacement, but he also participated in the recruiting
 and hiring process.

 We are extremely grateful to all what he has done to advance our mission in
 Wikimedia Argentina, and while we are certainly saddened to see him go we
 know that both he and us are doing everything possible to leave the
 organization on track and in good hands. Programmatic work will not suffer
 from this leadership change; if any, we as Board will ensure it gets
 reinforced.

 Anna will formally start working with us on March 1, and throughout all of
 that month Osmar will continue with us in Benedict fashion as ED emeritus
 to ensure that all the necessary knowledge, proceedings and contacts are
 transferred from one administration to another. We are glad to have
 achieved this level of stability as an organization, and we'd love to
 spread the word about this happy and smooth transition in the
 WikimediaConference with whoever wants to hear us :).

 We asked Osmar to be one of our representatives in Berlin as his last act
 of service, so it will also be a nice opportunity for you to meet him. In
 the meantime, please welcome Anna to the Wikimedia movement and to this
 mailing list!

 Best regards,

 *Galileo Vidoni*

very nice conference in Berlin.

El oct 12, 2013 8:31 a.m., Bence Damokos bdamo...@gmail.com escribió:

 Dear all,

 Following considerable deliberation it is with great pleasure that we
 announce that the Location Committee has selected Berlin as the location
 for the 2014 Wikimedia Conference.

 We received a total of four bids from Germany, India, Italy and Sweden. In
 selecting the Berlin location we have taken into consideration the
 experience and capacity of the team; the travel time and cost for
 attendees; the cost of hosting the conference; and the facilities and room
 configuration of the proposed venues.

 Throughout our deliberations we kept an open mind towards having the
 conference in a new location/country, and we have appreciated the compact
 solutions offered by having all participants close to each other or staying
 at the same lodging; however, we felt that the Berlin bid provides – by a
 small margin – the best combination of price, distance and experience this
 year.

 We thank all the organisations that have entered a bid for their time and
 effort and we hope that even if they were not selected this year, they can
 make use of the experience when they organise other meetings that will
 further the Wikimedia mission.

 In closing, we would like to thank all Wikimedia organisations for placing
 their trust in this process and committee, which was an interesting
 experience for all of us. In the hope that the Wikimedia organisations keep
 the hosting choice an open process, we would like to propose a number of
 potential process improvements[1], and we would invite all the bidders and
 other interested parties to provide their own feedback.

 WMRU are aware - I asked about this on the comcom list and they noted
 it was actually a serious issue - but I would expect they don't do
 anything until they're quite sure the community is moving in that
 direction, for probably-sensible reasons.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wiki goes to radio: Möebius at Ibero 90.9

2013-06-02 Thread Ivan Martínez
Thanks to all for your kindly comments.

Daniel: The broadcast production considers songs and sounds with copyright,
but I think we can upload a CC version without restrictive sounds to
Wikimedia Commons. This is our first big project with the GLAM partnering
and sounds fine the collaboration in Wikipedia recorded articles. We have
already talked with them about donating content, and is pending by these
copyright details. We hope to have good news soon.

Samuel: we will document all the programs, and put this connections on
line. For an example, the first successfull draft of the program was made
with the articles Isaac Asimov = Encyclopedia Galáctica = The Hitchikers
Guide's to the Galaxy = Marvin, the Paranoid Android = Ok, Computer =
Paranoid Android = Radiohead

Regards.


2013/5/31 Daniel Mietchen daniel.mietc...@googlemail.com

 Hi Iván,

 that's an interesting concept - looking forward to listening to the
 recordings.

 Do you envision that collaboration to broaden a bit over time? For
 instance, there does not seem to be any mention of Creative Commons on
 their site, or their trained voices might help in getting some more
 Wikipedia articles spoken in Spanish, or they might have a sound
 archive (or contacts to one), which could then be asked about
 releasing materials under Wikimedia-compatible licenses.

 Cheers,

 Daniel

   Dear all,
  
   I am happy to inform you that the Affiliations Committee has approved
 the
   recognition of a Wikimedia User Group today:  Wikimedians of Nepal.
  
   Please join me in welcoming this new group into the fold of Wikimedia
   entities, and let's celebrate their success and hard work as Wikipedia
   turns eleven in Nepal!
  
   == Wikimedians of Nepal ==
  
   Wikimedians of Nepal http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Nepal
  is a
   group of enthusiastic Nepali Wikimedians working towards developing and
   promoting Wikimedia projects in Nepal. They've been actively working to
   help expand the community, launch projects in more languages of Nepal
 and
   promote and support the existing ones.
  
   The group is working towards chapterhood, and have a good chance of
   attaining that status this year. Granting them user group recognition
   allows the movement to express its appreciation for their hard work
 even
   while they are working on the bureaucratic aspects of meeting the
   requirements of chapterhood. The timing is fortuitous  in that the
 group
  is
   going to mark the 11th anniversary of Wikipedia in a Nepali language
 on 3
   June, next Monday.
  
   Ganesh, the group's interim president has been invited to this year's
  Milan
   conference, where he gave a comprehensive overview of the group's
  history,
   its projects (including a successful 'wikiwomen programme) and its
   ambitions. The slides are at:
  
 http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/45/WMNepal_WMC_2013.pdf
  
   The Affiliations Committee's
   recognition
  
 
 http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Affiliations_Committee/Resolutions/Wikimedians_of_Nepal_-_May_2013
   is
   valid until 28 May 2014, or until they are recognized as a chapter.
  
  
   == Wikimedia User Groups ==
  
   Wikimedia User Groups are one of the three new types of affiliations
   created last year to empower volunteers wanting to conduct offline work
  and
   provide them recognition from the Wikimedia movement.
  
   User group status is meant to be an easy form of affiliation, where the
   main requirements are an agreed goal, plans for offline work, at least
   three people participating and a public wiki page with all the relevant
   information).
  
   Under the movement roles
   recommendations
  
 http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_affiliation_models/User_Groups
   , user groups are to be recognized in a quick and easy process directly
  by
   the Affiliations Committee, for a fixed, renewable time-period and they
  are
   to enjoy limited trademark use and simplified access to grants.
  
  
  
   Best regards,
   Bence Damokos
   Chair, Affiliatons Committee

 This is very cool. It might be a good idea, if you haven't already, to
 ping folks on the talk pages of the following English WikiProject:

 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/**Wikipedia:WikiProject_**Environmenthttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProject_Environment

 Hope that helps a bit, that's often what I do when digging up support or
 help for a project - and even pinging the most active members directly on
 their talk pages. Might also be worth to leave a comment on the WWF
 Wikipedia talk page.

  Hello, everyone.
 
  I'm pleased to announce that we have significantly expanded the Grant
  Advisory Committee (GAC)[1] as of today, and it now numbers 30
 volunteers,
  following an open process and public calls for volunteers.  The updated
  list of members is here[2].  With this expansion, we hope to achieve a
  higher degree of community participation in the Foundation's evaluation
 of
  grant proposals for its Wikimedia Grants program[3], as well as more
  diverse feedback and advice for grant applicants on how to refine their
  proposals for best impact.
 
  The GAC was set up almost exactly one year ago, and has been quietly
 doing
  what is frankly a thankless job.  I applaud and thank the volunteers who
  have done this work so far, and look forward to easing their load a
 little
  now that the GAC is larger, considering an expected rise in the number of
  grant proposals they would be called upon to review.
 
  Welcome to the new volunteers, and may we all have much success in
  fostering innovation and impactful mission-aligned activities through the
  grants program.
