Thank you all for your well wishes, it's been a wonderful experience and I
hope to come back someday. Congratulations to the new members (and Kirill!

[Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia DC Book Grant Program Announcement

2016-03-28 Thread Keilana
Hello all! (Apologies for cross-posting!)


I’m pleased to announce the second round of Wikimedia DC Book Grants, a
pilot program in which we help provide editors with resources they need to
improve Wikimedia projects. If you live in the United States and actively
edit Wikimedia projects, you are eligible; you do not have to be a member
of WMDC or edit English projects.

Applications are open for one week, from today through Monday, April 4. We
expect to let people know by April 10 whether or not their grant request
has been funded.

More information is available on the Wikimedia DC website [1].

Apply for a grant here: https://podio.com/webforms/14722557/986696

Thanks,

Emily Temple-Wood
Vice President, Wikimedia District of Columbia

Hi Magnus,

We are processing applications right now and will notify people by email if
they are accepted, deferred (our funds are limited and I know as of right
now we will be deferring several applications until we have more funding),
or rejected. (FYI, your application has been received and you'll hear back
from us within a couple days.)

Best,
Emily

That's such a wonderful, sweet project! :) It seems likely infeasible for
bigger projects but as a way to build a strong small wiki community, I
think it's amazing!

Kudos to you!

 We award the best newbie of the month on Ukrainian Wikipedia and award

 For this we create the lists with all contributions (main namespace only)

 in line with the rules (no copyright violation, vandalism etc.). Then a
 message on the talk page with a picture of a can and after the winner gives
 us his/her postal address, we send him/her the can itself :) [3]

 It is sweet. I can vouch for that :)

Re: [Wikimedia-l] WMF is shutting down grantmaking for good projects for 3 months for no reason

2015-01-09 Thread Keilana
It's not denying attention or funds. It's focusing attention and funds on a
badly needed area for 3 months out of the year, and the rest of the
projects get the full 9 months. Inviting people to focus their proposals on
the gender gap (which, btw, doesn't need scare quotes, as I assure you it's
real), has the potential to make a far bigger impact than the past 4-5
years of talking about it have. This sounds suspiciously like white people
whining about why there's no white history month when the shortest month
of the year is allocated to black history month. Just some food for thought.

 for funds to address the gender gap even though it a listed priority of
 the
 WMF.

 Denying attention and funds to unrelated projects is not an appropriate
 way to encourage people interested in gender gap to request funds.

 OSH is a major concern in countries like India, especially when it is

Sort of - Ebola is definitely an occupational health hazard for health care

I'm the second US Federal WIR as far as I can tell - Dominic was the first,
and, unless someone has been very under-the-radar (or I've had my head
under a rock), NIOSH is the first federal science/technology/medicine

 I'm sure you'll do well, but please let me know if I can offer any
 help or advice - especially where the subject interests of NIOSH and
 the Royal Society of Chemistry (where I am Wikimedian in Residence)

 As a matter of interest, how many US federal WiRs have there been now -

Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia Announcements] Jake Orlowitz/Ocaasi comes onto the Grantmaking team at WMF with The Wikipedia Library

A big big congratulations to Jake! His work is so important to our mission.

 Dear friends and colleagues,

 I am delighted to announce that Jake Orlowitz (User:Ocaasi, User:Ocaasi
 (WMF))
 is joining the Grantmaking department at WMF to lead The Wikipedia Library
 (TWL)[1], an online resource for Wikipedians to get free access to
 journal subscriptions.
 In the last year, TWL has helped nearly 2000 unique users access 3000
 accounts of sources like JSTOR, Elsevier, De Gruyter, and Oxford University
 Press,[2] and is now experimenting with community-run branches in Arabic,
 German and other languages.

 Jake will be a full-time contractor with part-time support from Alex
 Stinson
 (User:Sadads, User:Astinson (WMF)) for an initial period of six months.
 They are both working with an amazing volunteer team of Wikipedians guided
 by Head of Volunteer Coordination (User:Nikkimaria). We're particularly
 looking forward to seeing how TWL can expand its global (non-English) work,
 and what it can teach us about the best ways to support some of our top
 contributors, and improve content on our projects.

 Many of you know Jake well, but for those who don't: Jake (Ocaasi) is a
 long time Wikipedian, with two Individual Engagement Grants from us, and he
 has been on the IEG grants committee for the past two years. Jake works
 remotely from Philadelphia but is frequently in the Bay Area, especially
 during long and dark East Coast winters.  Alex has been involved for many
 years with both Education and GLAM outreach. He resides in Kansas where he
 works on Digital Humanities at Kansas State.

 You can catch up on all of TWL's new happenings in the latest edition of
 the Books and Bytes newsletter.[7] We're excited to bring The Wikipedia
 Library on board and look forward to its growth and evolution!

 Warmly,
 Anasuya

 Jake Orlowitz (User:Ocaasi) started editing in 2007 as an ip. Early on he
 worked on articles about religious groups, political movements,
 and alternative health. Around 2010 he shifted focus from editing
 to helping new users, working in the irc-help channel and developing the
 Plain
 and Simple guide for New Editors [3] and its COI counterpart [4]. In 2012
 Jake began developing projects through the Individual Engagement Grants
 department at WMF. He built The Wikipedia Adventure,[5] a playful
 interactive game to onboard new editors. He also began establishing and
 expanding donation partnerships in The Wikipedia Library to provide free
 research access to top article contributors. He helps out as a board member
 of Wiki Project Med Foundation [6] and gives talks about Wikipedia's role
 in education. Jake grew up in the Philadelphia suburbs and studied
 political theory at Wesleyan, before starting a tutoring company in
 Colorado. He currently splits his time between coasts, working
 full-time on Wikipedia
 projects. His contract with WMF will focus on expanding the number and
 global reach of Wikipedia Library partnerships.

 Alex Stinson (User:Sadads) is a 9-year editor with over 80,000
 contributions,
 actively involved in different forms of outreach.  He
 is currently a project manager with the The Wikipedia Library, a long time
 volunteer with The Wikipedia Education Program, and supporter of GLAM-Wiki
 outreach. Alex has a Masters degree in English Literature from Kansas State
 University with research focused on cultural studies and the digital
 humanities. He works as a digital humanist at K-State, where he helps
 develop projects and create partnerships with educators and cultural
 institutions.
