[Wikimedia-l] Monthly skill share idea

John Lubbock
Hi all, after talking to community members at the London meetup yesterday,
I want to suggest that we start running a monthly skillshare after work at
the Wikimedia UK office. It would be good to organise a 12 month programme
with skillshares on things like 'getting an article to featured article
status', AWB, Wikidata infoboxes, something on commons or photography
perhaps.

Would anybody like to suggest other subjects which it would be good to have
a workshop on? We need a list of 12 which would have some broad appeal to
the community and chapter members.

I would suggest Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, maybe first week of the
month. How does that sound to everyone?

Excellent idea. There was an idea to start something similar "what have you
learnt recently/Share your exciting new learning (of course Wiki-related)".

Thanks

I like the idea. Once you have worked out how to do it efficiently, maybe the WMF can send out trainers to places where the skills are thin on the ground.
Cheers,

Have you checked about similar initiatives from other chapters or user
groups? I've heard that Wikimédia France ou Wikimedia Deutschland host
similar workshops, both in their offices or inside of local groups. They
may have some feedback to share.

You are on the main mailing list, did you know? Is this UK workshop to be
online?

Ideas:
Using the Programs and Events Dashboard.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Monthly skill share idea

Arne Wossink
Hi all,

Wikimedia Nederland has done something similar last year. We've organized a
couple of evenings that were also streamed online. Topics included Commons
(photography tips & uploading), Wikidata, copyright, mass-uploading
(Pattypan mostly). Feel free to contact me for more details.

Best,

Arne Wossink

Do you mean burning hundreds of litres of jet fuel for one or a few
workshop for an handful of people?
How irresponsible. You may didn't get the emergency of global warming
mitigation.
For the Wikimedia movement, to get organised in a way that lead to drop
the flights needed by 5 or 10 time in the next few years would be only
taking its fair share in the action.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Monthly skill share idea

Peter Southwood
Matthias,
Since you presumably have a better suggestion, go ahead and suggest it.
While you are at it, look into a solution for all the air transport for even more frivolous objectives, also the land transport. We could do with a few good workable alternatives for daily commuting. I assume you do not own or use a private motor vehicle, they are generally less efficient than large passenger aircraft.
Also, a lot depends on where the trainers start from. Wikimedia is a worldwide movement, they do not all have to come from WMF headquarters, and you appear not to take into consideration the chain reaction effect, once there are people in a region with the skills, they can spread them locally far more efficiently, but somewhere it has to start.
Cheers,
Peter

I may have some suggestions, anyone can have one, provided the target is
met.

> While you are at it, look into a solution for all the air transport for even more frivolous objectives, also the land transport. We could do with a few good workable alternatives for daily commuting. I assume you do not own or use a private motor vehicle, they are generally less efficient than large passenger aircraft.

Sure, except that one typically count a trip by hours, and hours in an
aircraft consume far more by passenger than the biggest car.
The point is not to wait for "workable alternatives" if there is no
perfect ones, but as far as transport is concerned, to travel less
often, less far, less quickly... or possibly for a longer time.

> Also, a lot depends on where the trainers start from. Wikimedia is a worldwide movement, they do not all have to come from WMF headquarters, and you appear not to take into consideration the chain reaction effect,

You told it, we may consider that we are very closed to a chain reaction
effect in global warming if nothing changes rapidly.
