I made an error with the URL. Apparently the link should be 
https://zoom.us/j/528900812 for people who want to join with the Zoom software.
Attendance has been very light but I will schedule a future meeting like this 
with more notice, perhaps a more structured agenda, and hopefully with a 
correct URL.

Thank you for making this happen, Pine, I'm very much looking forward to
it. I did a decent amount of livestreaming for Huffington Post (I'm sorry)
and other outlets back in my day and would be happy to help w/ future
logistics as a volunteer.

 Hi all,

I am scheduling this meeting for Monday, July 30th at 7 PM UTC / 12 PM
Pacific. The number of people who have indicated interest is small, so this
will be more of a casual meetup than a formal event. I think that this type
of online international meetup could be fun and interesting. We'll see what
happens.

To join the meeting, you will need the Zoom software from
https://www.zoom.us, or you can join by telephone.

If you install the Zoom software then you can join from PC, Mac, Linux, iOS
or Android with this link: https://zoom.us/528900812

As an alternative, you can join by telephone from many places throughout
the world. Phone numbers are listed at https://zoom.us/zoomconference. You
will need the meeting ID, which is 528-900-812. If you join by phone then
your phone number will be visible to other participants in the meeting.

If more people are interested in the future then I may do some thinking
about how to plan and organize the meeting, but for now we can be
relatively casual. My plan is to do a brief round of introductions at the
meeting, review some of the top-level metrics from around Wikimedia, and
then open the floor for roundtable discussion.

I look forward to the conversation on the 30th.

[Wikimedia-l] Would people be interested in a "Community Metrics and Activities Meeting"?

2018-07-25 Thread Pine W
Although there will not be a WMF Metrics and Activities Meeting this month,
I'm wondering, would people be interested in having a "Wikimedia Community
Metrics and Activities Meeting"? People could present lightning talks about
their subjects of interest (one to five minutes long), and we could have
round-table discussion about subjects of interest (like the strategy
process), and have Q with any presenters. Presentations from individual
Wikimedians and from affiliates would be welcome.

I think that tomorrow may be too soon because people might want to prepare
some lightning talks, so maybe we could do this next week.

I'm going to do a minimal setup for the meeting because I have discovered
through painful experience that "Pine does everything and isn't paid for
any of it" is emotionally exhausting and financially unsustainable, so this
will be less structured (and probably a bit more spontaneous and perhaps
chaotic) than a WMF metrics meeting, but I think that it could be fun. :)

I've set up a Doodle poll, and I'll use the number of votes there as an
indication of how many people are interested and available. If people want
to meet again in future months then I'll think some more about scheduling
for future months and also about how to include the possibility of
presentations in diverse languages.

The Doodle poll is here: https://doodle.com/poll/a84hz3k7rui8rg7b. I set up
the times in UTC, so you may need to convert them to your local timezone.

Especially if a lot of people show up, there may be some chaos and missed
opportunities the first time around, but if there's a high level of
interest and people want to do this again then we can make modifications
for future meetings.

We'll probably use Zoom as our online meeting tool, and at least for the
first meeting it won't be recorded but I (or maybe someone else) will take
notes and post the notes on Meta.

I realize that this is a risky experiment, but I think that overall it
could be something that people like and find to be beneficial for making
international connections.

Regards,

Pine
