[Sorry for using English, anyone wants a translation I am happy to provide
I just wanted to give some prior notice that early in March myself, Maryana
Pinchuk, and Victor Grigas from the Foundation will be Brazil for a few
meetups. Maryana, Victor, and I will be in at least three cities (São
Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and Curitiba) and may be able to come to WikiNatal
This is all being discussed on the Esplanada (
and there are individual meetup pages linked from there. Please sign up if
you can make it, and thank you to those who have already done so. :-)
There is more detail in Portuguese at the link, but just to give a quick
overview of why we're going...
We're traveling to hear from Portuguese Wikipedians about what editing the
lusophone Wikipedia is like. We have a few questions, but otherwise no set
agenda. While the jobs of Jessie, Barry, and the new National Program
Director are largely to work with Wikimedia Brasil and the community on
outreach in the country, Maryana and I have a focus on Wikimedia
communities from all over, rather than outreach in any particular country.
This Brazil trip is part of a series of conversations we're having with
editors where we learn more about non-English Wikipedias. (Maryana and I
are both English Wikipedians primarily.)
If you have any questions, let me know. I am happy to go into more detail.
