This is wonderful. Eric, as one of the IRC regulars, I suggest that you use #wikimedia-office since I’ve seen it used for WMF office hours in the past, and hosting a meeting in there 1) is easy for regulars to find, and 2) the activity will be visible to users who have their IRC clients set to automatically connect to that channel even if they didn’t get an announcement of a scheduled meeting, and 3) avoids cluttering other channels. Also, if you set up a new channel you will need to make sure that you’ve got sufficient ops in the channel to deal with trolls. If you use #wikimedia-office as I hope you will, you may want to make sure that you have some of the ops for that channel active and available during the meeting.

Thanks for this announcement.

Hi folks,

I'm pleased to announced that the next WMF metrics and activities
meeting is going to be the first one that'll be live-streamed on
YouTube with an open IRC backchannel.

The meeting will take place November 1, 2012 at 5:30 PM UTC. The IRC
channel is #wikimedia-metrics-meetings [1] on irc.freenode.net.

The current structure of the meeting is:
* Review of key metrics including the monthly report card, but also
specialized reports and analytics
* Review of financials
* Welcoming recent hires
* Brief presentations on recent projects, with a focus on highest
priority initiatives
* Update and Q&A with the Executive Director, if available

Please review https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Metrics_and_activities_meetings
for further information about how to participate.

We'll post IRC logs and the video recording publicly after the meeting.

All best,

[1] I'm open to just using #wikimedia or another channel if folks
would prefer that, but didn't want to assume that it's OK to hog the
channel :)
