As a bit of a surprise, the Wikimedia Summit 2022 announced they are going
to have an in-real-life meeting September 9-11, 2022 (2022-09-09 to 09-11).
They are only giving us two weeks to designate one person to apply to
attend, which is very fast.
I wanted to start this thread to get folks thinking before our meeting
tomorrow, to see who might be interested in going. We have rarely had any
kind of Wikimedia movement gathering in September of any particular year,
so the timing is a bit unusual as it tends to be busy with a number of
start-of-school activities in certain places.
The focus will be on movement strategy among other things. I'm putting a
link to the announcement here. Feel free to send any questions or discuss
via email or come to the meeting tomorrow.
Hi fellow WRENs,
Join here on Wednesday: https://meet.google.com/asi-hpms-pxv
Wed April 6, 12pm – 1pm Eastern Time - New York
A special session from Dominic:
This will be a demo and brainstorming session. In the February WREN meeting
we discussed a project I have been working on, with WMF project grant
funding, to prototype auto-generated captions and/or citations of GLAM
images using SDC. We went over a quick demo at the end of the hour, and
talked about scheduling a dedicated meeting to discuss it further. We are
seeking feedback from community members, especially those that do outreach
and/or work with GLAM images, on the current prototype, in order to
document use cases and demonstrate need for further technical development
