oi! Please excuse the english - hopefully Google Translate will work just fine!

One thing I just noticed in the FAQ on meta is a shout-out to Brazil:
"CIS will hire a programme director for the work. The recruitment process will draw on the best practices Wikimedia used in Brazil and incorporate active community participation in the process. They will share more info on this soon."

While I'm glad to know that they are going to be more transparent and community driven in India, I also want to make sure they have the chance to IMPROVE the process we used in Brazil in the hiring of Oona Castro. 

I am going to write up a page summarizing the work on br.wikimedia, and then move it over to meta for reference sake. Would anyone like to help construct it? The page has to be in English, but it would be great to get a lot of comments on the comment page with your reflections on the hiring process, and these are more than welcome to be in Portuguese. I will leave a few questions on it to jog your memories a bit, but feel free to write about anything:


Obrigada! Beijos! []s!! :D

Compartilhando aqui: o programa da Índia está passando por mudanças.

Vejam o post abaixo.

Foi coincidência (não só o post diz, mas meu amigo do CIS-India tb disse o mesmo), mas nos próximos meses o diretor de lá, Hisham, sairá do programa e o CIS-Índia vai tocar em parceria com a WMF o programa de lá. Eu conheço a http://cis-india.org/ dos tempos de CTS e Overmundo e eram bons parceiros em projetos internacionais. Sei que eles já estavam trabalhando com o escritório da Índia e sei que são da comunidade de cultura e software livres. Espero que a nova fase do programa seja exitosa e implemente mudanças positivas na relação com o capítulo local.

Na torcida. Aí vai o post
