Subject: [Wmfall] Invitation to upcoming office hours with interim ED
To: wikimedia-l(a)lists.wikimedia.org, wmfall(a)lists.wikimedia.org,
**Summary: I am delighted to invite you to join me for two upcoming office
hours, where I’ll answer community questions and share updates on the
It’s been a busy few weeks around the Wikimedia Foundation offices. We
shared our 2016-2017 annual plan, finished our quarterly reviews, and
attended Wikimedia Conference 2016 in Berlin with the Wikimedia affiliates.
In Berlin, I had the chance to do one of my favorite things: sit with
Wikimedians, listen, debate, and plan for the future. Of course, Berlin is
just one gathering, and there are thousands of other perspectives out
there. I want to hear more of these perspectives, and so I’m looking
forward to hosting two office hours over the coming weeks.
We plan to hold a traditional office hours on IRC, and will also experiment
with a video Q&A. We hope these different formats will make it easier for
more people to participate using their preferred communications channels.
We’ve chosen two different time zones, with the goal of reaching as many
people as possible. They are as follows:
*This session will be recorded, and the video will be posted on
Commons/Meta. Due to video conferencing limitations, we encourage advance
Wednesday, 11 May 2016
00:00-1:00 UTC | 17:00-18:00 PDT 
*This session follows the May monthly metrics meeting. Like other office
hours, it will be held in #Wikimedia-office on Freenode.*
Thursday, 26 May 2016
19:00-20:00 UTC | 12:00-13:00 PDT 
We’re also collecting questions in advance for those who can’t make either
of those sessions. We’ve created a page on Meta where you can leave
questions or comments, check the details on the location of each session:
Please share this invitation with others you think may be interested!
I look forward to speaking soon,
