Hi folks,

Based on comments that I received on Wikimedia-l, I would like to invite
people to a casual online meetup one hour before the monthly WMF Metrics
and Activities Meeting.

There will be no set agenda. You can come with questions or ideas that you
would like to discuss. Please be willing to listen to questions and ideas
from other Wikimedians.

I will host the meeting with the Zoom software. You can join with software
or by using your phone. If you join by phone then your phone number will be
visible to other participants.

The primary language of the meeting will be English, but if people would
like to communicate in diverse languages then that is okay too. We can
facilitate translation by text chat. Many Wikimedians, myself included, are
multilingual in varying degrees, so we might try to have live
interpretation also.

Here is information about how to connect:

The first "Wikimedia Café" meetup will be on 30 August 2018, at 17:00 UTC /
10:00 Pacific.

Let me emphasize that the environment won't be like this
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:West_Hartford,_Connecticut_health_care_reform_town_hall_meeting,_2009-09-02.jpg>,
so please don't feel intimated if you are nervous about public speaking.
(If a conversation feels to me like it is becoming uncivil or intimidating,
then I will ask the debaters to quiet themselves or to move to somewhere
else.) The meeting will generally have an environment that is more like this
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Caf%C3%A9_M%C3%A9lange,_Wien.jpg> or
this
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Takamatsu-Castle-Building-Interior-M3488.jpg>.
I anticipate that few people will come, which is okay. I hope that if you
come then you will enjoy the environment and conversation.

Until next time,
Pine
