Introducing Srishti Sethi, our new Developer Advocate

Quim Gil-2
Hello everybody,

The Technical Collaboration team is very happy to introduce you to Srishti
Sethi <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:SSethi_(WMF)>, our new
Developer Advocate. Srishti will lead our efforts to engage volunteer
developers in Wikimedia software projects and to grow the Wikimedia
technical community. In her first assignments, she will help promote
Community Wishlist projects, the Wikimedia Developer Summit, and
Wikimedia’s participation in Google Code-in. Srishti just relocated from
Boston to San Francisco, and she will work at the Wikimedia Foundation
office.

Srishti originally hails from Rajasthan, India. She recently finished her
Masters in Media Arts and Sciences from the MIT Media Lab, where she was
exploring how online platforms for learning could be made more peer-led,
engaging, participatory and accessible to diverse populations. At the Media
Lab, Srishti contributed to the design, development, and research of
Unhangout (http://unhangout.media.mit.edu), a platform for running
large-scale un-conference style events online.

Before joining MIT, she was working as a software developer with a startup
organization in India. As an undergrad, she was involved with the open
source community GNOME and its educational project GCompris.

In her spare time, Srishti likes to play ping-pong, do long bike trips,
take photographs and make masala chai for friends. :)

Please join us in welcoming Srishti!

Welcome, Srishti!

From the MIT Media Lab to Wikimedia Foundation! How great!

It would be great to chat further about your work at the Media Lab with
UnHangouts and at the WMF - and wiki CC WUaS as well; might you participate
in the open ArchCom (Architecture Committee) meeting this afternoon from
2-3pm PT in Internet Relay Chat - #wikimedia-office ...
https://webchat.freenode.net - as a start?

I'd like to invite you, Srishti, (and all
Wikitechans/Wikidatans/Wikimedians in the SF Bay Area) to the Wikidata 4th
birthday party on Wednesday, October 26 from 12:30-1:30 at Red Door Coffee
SF on 111 Minna Street - https://www.wikidata.org/
wiki/Wikidata:Fourth_Birthday/Events. (CC World University and School
donated CC WUaS to CC Wikidata last autumn. WUaS is bringing the cake to
this party. Wiki WUaS is accrediting on MIT OpenCourseWare in its 7
languages+ to create free CC "Harvards of the Web" with free CC Uni degrees
in all countries' main languages. WUaS holds an open hive meeting space at
AFSC / SFFM on 9th Street at Mission on M & W, 10-noon, not far from the
Wikimedia Foundation at all).

(Waiting here to hear if I made the short list for a tenure track MIT Media
Lab junior faculty position. Will head back to Cambridge, MA, to give a
talk and for interviews in late October / early November if I do.)

Welcome to the WMF wiki world of SF and looking forward to meeting and
talking with you in person.

Namaste, Scott
