Hi all, Have there ever been a serious discussion on the idea of having a network of Wikipedia branded (co)editing spaces / coffee shops / tea rooms around the world?
They could work so that a chapter may apply from the WMF a license to run a Wikipedia coediting coffee shop. The WMF could provide some basic things such as Wikipedia branded coffee cups, barista aprons and specification of the tables, chairs, menu etc. Each Wikipedia coediting space could also offer some local delicacies. The coediting space could seek for profit (shared between the chapter and the WMF?), but the primary aim would be to be self-sustainable. I am sure there are some cons, but I made a quick list of pros: * Outreach and education * Community building * Jobs for Wikipedians * Fun places for all Wikipedians to visit when in town Any thoughts? - Teemu --------------------------------------- http://www.teemuleinonen.fi + 358 50 351 6796 _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines and https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia-l New messages to: Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
