New Sister Projects lunchtime meetup today

Pharos-3
The New Sister Projects Meetup is a gathering together of Wikimedians interested in experimenting with proposals for new sister projects.

There has been no new sister project since 2012!

Let's talk about ways to make a more agile process where it is much easier to start small new projects to see if they work out, and maybe also to merge old projects if they do not work out.

One such proposal is Wikispore, which involves a Community Wishlist-style contest, but existing proposals like Wikimedia genealogy project, as well as all subject-based and general ideas will be considered.

Technical input from small wiki founders/administrators and MediaWiki developers/installers will also be more than welcome!

Since this conflicts with other important meetups, we will be glad to schedule a follow-up session later at Wikimania if there is interest.

**Saturday, 17 August, 13:00 – 14:00 (1:00 - 2:00 pm) Central European Summer Time - meet at lunchtime in Lessing (D499)**

Sign up here:

Thanks,
Richard

Would love to be part of the discussion but....  I like to see a oral or intangible knowledge project to collect both cultural histories and personal experiences to add to the stories being told on Wikipedia

Indeed, representing oral knowledge in wikis is very much part of the goal here!

Hope those interested in oral history / knowledge can join sometime during the lunch hour today.

Thanks,
Richard

Ok, that was much more remote than I thought - relocating to Myrdal Space (J) just outside Magna Aula instead.

Will convene outside at 12:15.

Thanks,
Richard
