then I'd like to point you to the submission to Wikimania I have made:
I would love to see you there as part of the workshop.
Thanks for the suggestion, Manuel. I wonder if this hour long session would
be useful to have not as a workshop but perhaps as an overview/awareness
presentation for the broader Wikimedia community, who are perhaps less
knowledgable on the offline topic. What do you all think? Last year I felt
a little sad we didn't do a more "promotional" presentation to reach out to
people who were not necessarily already involved in the project.
I wonder for the purposes of this strategic planning / working meeting, if
we need a few days of prioritizing, planning, and hacking/working from some
of the people most deeply involved in different projects. This seems like
something that could be potentially be done during the hackathon days of
the conference: July 10-11.
Otherwise, we could alternatively plan a weekend in June, if this is more
appealing to folks, or meets more availability.
I started a page on the Offline Projects page:
1. Put your username if you are (in general) interested in attending
this; this will help us gauge the number of people who want to be involved
2. Indicate your availability for the Wikimania dates
3. Suggest alternate dates
4. Suggest agenda items
Thanks for your interest. I think this could be _awesome_. Again:
