Re: [Internal-l] Fwd: [Wikimediach-l] PR and Media

Ilario Valdelli
About the last e-mails I am a little bit confused and I place a question
(Frieda, president of Wikimedia Italia is reading this e-mail in Bcc).

I received this e-mail (sorry it is in italian):

> Mi occupo della formazione e dell'informazione per ADISI Associazione
> di Diritto Informatico della Svizzera Italiana www.adisi.ch. Facciamo
> anche una trasmissione radiofonica presso R3iii e Radio Fiume Ticino,
> con possibilità di riascoltare le puntate online o di scaricarle: Tam
> Tam (cfr. <http://www.adisi.ch/tamtam>).

> Sarebbe d'accordo di farsi intervistare telefonicamente sul progetto
> Wikimedia CH per Tam Tam?

It is from Claude Almansi to have an interview about Wikimedia CH in a
local radio in Tessin.

At moment I don't understand who should be informed. Normally I asked to
Wikimedia Italia because the interviews was almost about Wikipedia, but
this interview discuss about Wikimedia CH.

In my opinion the problem of PR and Media relations in Wikimedia CH
should be clarified. I see that the other local chapters has not faced
this problem because the language was only one (italian, french,
english, polish), but Wikimedia CH is tri-linguistic (and perhaps
4-linguistic or 5-linguistic) and the problem could be present with
other wikimedias in future and also in chapter with same language (i.e.
Irish Chapter and English Chapter).

The swiss chapter at art.2 says:

(you can find in www.wikimedia.ch the translations)

but how this points could be reached whitout specific coordination by
swiss chapter in three languages? The division of competencies in three
different wikimedias could be self-defeating for swiss chapter or can
became the swiss chapter to be a "swiss-deutsch" chapter. But I
understand that Wikipedias are language-based and Wikimedias are
country-based. How can we harmonize this scenario?

In my opinion we can have a "master PR Coordinator in each languages"
who directs "regional PRs" for the condition like Swiss, but regional
PRs should be "managed by local Wikimedia". It is important to not split
the competencies between different wikimedias otherwise the Romandie and
the Tessin and the Graubunden could be disadvantaged in this situation.

Sincerely

Ilario
