Telegram is primarily a phone based system. It does not allow me to just have an account.

Hello all,

As you know, Lydia and i regularly organize Wikidata office hours, an online meeting where we're presenting an update from the development team, what we're working on at the moment, people can ask questions.

The next one will take place on Tuesday, November 5th at 18:00 Berlin time (UTC+1) on the the Wikidata Telegram channel.

The previous meetings happened on IRC, and the content is later transferred onwiki. You can see the archives here.
Since we noticed that over the past year, more and more activity takes place on the Telegram channel, and less on IRC, we decided to make an experiment and run the office hour on Telegram for the first time. As usual, the notes of the meeting will be published on wiki, so everyone can access them.

Depending on how it works for us and for you, we may decide to continue the experiment, to go back to IRC, or even to find another tool for such an interactive meeting (I also plan to look at the tools that Wikimedia Space is offering). I hope you won't mind us trying new things :)

If you have any question or remark, feel free to reach out to me.
