Hello Cascadia Wikimedians,
I am forwarding this on behalf of Elisa Law from the Washington State
Of note is the Edits for Women 2020 Event, which is five joint edit-a-thons
that the Comcast Women's Network plans for Fri March 27, 2020 - 9am to 4pm,
at Seattle, Fife, Puyallup, Shoreline, & Spokane. Support for some of these
will be remote, possibly via Zoom.
I am hoping that we will start with an introduction to editing Wikipedia
presented simultaneously to each of the five locations.
If any Wikimedians are available to help in any capacity for any length of
time during these edit-a-thons, on site or remotely, please contact me.

Subject: [Wikimedia Summit 2020] Update on program and timeline – next
steps towards the Wikimedia Summit
Date: Thu, 20 Feb 2020 15:10:09 +0100

Week by week, we are coming closer to the Wikimedia Summit – and you
might ask: What can I do to prepare myself for the event? What are the
next steps towards the event? What will we do at the Wikimedia Summit?
I’ll try to give you a compact overview and answers to these questions.
Compared to previous years, we are a bit less communicating from the
organizers’ side at the moment, because we would like you to focus
on the ongoing Community Conversations around the movement strategy
recommendations. Feedback is collected from across online
communities, affiliates and the WMF until February 21.
As soon as these conversations are concluded, the movement strategy
core team will create a report on these conversations, that you can
review between March 2 and 6.
This report will serve as the main input for the integration meeting
of the recommendations which will take place from March 10 to 12 in
New York. At this meeting, former working group members, the core
team, Katherine Maher and Ryan Merkley will meet to incorporate all
the feedback collected over the last few weeks, and create the final
set of recommendations. These will be published between March 23 and
27, and will be the working document at the Wikimedia Summit.
We expect the WMF Board of Trustees to approve these final
recommendations in the week before the Wikimedia Summit, March 27 to
You can find a handy timeline here:
Preparation for the Wikimedia Summit
To make it clear: We will not edit, change, or modify the
recommendations at the Wikimedia Summit.By then, they will be set.
On the first day of the Wikimedia Summit, we aim to get all
participants on the same page and to create a shared understanding
of the recommendations.
The recommendations consist of so-called “Expected Outcomes” (like:
“Establish a Movement Charter”, “Create a Code of Conduct”, etc.).
On the second and third day, we will discuss which of these outcomes
the organizations and groups should work on first (Prioritization).
Also, we will discuss which outcomes depend on each other and need
to be done prior to others, or can run in parallel (Sequencing).
Ideally, you discuss these two actions – prioritization and
sequencing – inside your affiliate before you come to the Wikimedia
Finally, we will explore which organizations and groups could take
over which responsibilities during implementation and what kind of
support is needed to initiate a successful implementation process.
We are still working on a method to actually have these difficult
conversations. We would appreciate it if you start discussing what
role you can see for your organization taking in implementing these
Starting from March 4, we will offer onboarding calls for all
participants, at least 2 to 3 per week, with different timings for
different time zones. If you have a question, if you need more clarity
on the things mentioned above, I would urge you to attend one of these
calls. Members of the Strategy Core Team will attend as well to answer
any process-related questions.

I am working with Kat Thornton to create a Wikibase instance for
compiling global nutrition datasets. We're hoping that some of the data
in this system are useful to other Wikimedia projects, especially Wikidata.
We are applying for WMF Project Grants to cover the costs of engineering
and Edit-a-thon events:
If you have any feedback, please let us know! Also, if you support this
idea, please consider adding an endorsement on that proposal page.
I realize I just missed the meetup yesterday but I'd love to come by
next time to talk about the project.
I, too, will be able to make this evening's panel. I will need to skedaddle
afterwards, so I cannot take you up on your offer for coffee or a drink
See you by 5:25pm this evening.

I sent this email a week ago but it appears to have not gone through?
I think I may have emailed from the wrong address.
In any case, I know the notice is very short but I wonder if anybody
be able to make it to my class on Wednesday?
Details are below.

Creativity can be a social contribution, but only in so far
as society is free to use the results. --GNU Manifesto
