Dear members of Wikimedia CH As discussed with the Board recently on a TAO project review, I was asked to circulate a Survey on a) Special interests and b) Availabilities of community members (see links to the Doodle polls below).
After the TAO Kick-off meeting in October 2010 in Bern the project is progressing and demanding more community involvement on both sides (Wikimedia and Seniorweb). For our planned inter-community activities we need support from our members those who have expressed their interest already and others who didnt so far. Another important step in the project development is the launch of the TAO info desk in the Coop Shopping mall in Wankdorf/Bern where we are trying to approach our target groups to evaluate the needs for online courses and training. The pilot phase has already begun, the official launch will be in January ongoing. Our community partner Seniorweb already identified and prepared an impressive number of volunteers for this start-up and we urgently need people to represent our community there. If the Wankdorf pilot event will be successful, it is intended to adopt it to other Coop Shopping malls in Biel/Bienne, Basel, Zurich or comparable metropolitan locations. In the francophone part (Fribourg and Lausanne), community meetings with Seniorweb will be organized soon to meet each other and to find common grounds and issues for further cooperation. Similar events need to be organised in the German-speaking parts of the country as well. Anybody who is interested and willing to support us with organizing local community meetings is highly welcome! For the Special Interest survey we designed the following typologies: A = TAO project in general (core group); B = Participation and support of pilot actions like the Shopping mall in Wankdorf; C = Participation and support of similar pilot actions (Coop Shopping mall) at other locations (multiplication); D = Participation at community meetings with Seniorweb; E = Organizing other regional/local events in your home area (with support of the TAO community coordinators of course!); F = Participation in the WM Task Force on cooperation with the Federal Archive/ Bundesarchiv (public sector data). Please note / tack your special interest in the Doodle poll below according to the defined typologies (A F): http://doodle.com/huf5sdvxq7knnzth The next/second Doodle poll is asking for your time availabilities for such activities over the week and weekends (for planning and coordination purposes): http://doodle.com/g7mkpq56vtwy6ru5 Please note that travel expenses for community actions can be reimbursed. We kindly appreciate your feedback until Sunday, 12 December 2010. Thanks a lot for a broad contribution to these surveys! Kind regards, Wolf Ludwig (TAO project coordinator) _______________________________________________ http://wikimedia.ch Wikimedia CH website Wikimediach-l mailing list https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediach-l
