Hi folks, The Wikimedia Café meetup for October will be on October 25. At this meetup I would like to have a brief discussion about Wikidata's increasingly prominent role in Wikimedia and in the broader world. If you would like to participate in the meetup and have another topic in mind for discussion, that's fine also. Coming to the Café with no topic in mind, or primarily to listen, is okay too.
As stated previously, I would like for the Café environment to be casual and low stress for communication and enjoyment. I will not record the meetup, and I request that others also not record, although people may take notes. If you are concerned about privacy then you are welcome to disable your camera and participate by voice only. The meetup will start one hour before the WMF/Wikimedia Activities Meeting. We will probably meet for 30 to 40 minutes. The Zoom connection information is the same as for the August meetup (see below) except for the change of date. If you have questions then you're welcome to email me on-list or off-list.
