[Wikimedia-l] fallout from 2018 Wikimedian of the Year announcement

Фархад Фаткуллин / Farkhad Fatkullin
Dear colleagues,

This is a request for your input and possible ideas (if any) regarding my management of the fallout from Jimmy's announcing myself as a 2018 Wikimedian of the Year.

Emails below are a copy of my ongoing consultations with Wikimedia Foundation staff and other Wikimedians I personally know, as well as a report on what's already brewing in my region of Russia after this unexpected outcome.

I would be grateful, if you can advise me on how to properly steer the enthusiasm of behalf of regional government, mass-media, NGOs, etc. which have just discovered about the possibility of participation in Wikimedia movement (think anything from U.S. is not getting much in-depth coverage in Russian by sources that regional public figures, NGOs, teachers or general regional journalists read) & are now placing great hopes on teaching whole of Tatarstan about how to Wiki & also engaging all Tatars globally (3/4 outside of Tatarstan, 1/5 outside of Russia).

regards,
farhad

Updates:
* Selet WikiSchool got presented to wider public @ the press-conference for Tatar-speaking journalists (July 31), at the poster session in the framework of the World Congress of Tatars Youth Forum (Aug.3), and later at a Tatar projects fair in the Downtown park of Kazan (Aug.5)
* Contribution of those writing into Wikipedia in Tatar was recognized by choosing myself as one of the current year's "For the great service to Tatar nation" medal recipients. (Aug.3)
* We recorded a 40 min interview in Turkish (Aug.4, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HK3tFBWMWcs )
* We didn't yet meet the President of the Republic (his schedule changed once again), but I got another firm request to meet with the Minister for Youth Affairs (another good acquaintance of mine, ex-member of local Comedy Club type activity), as well as with the Head of World Congress of Tatars' Executive Bureau, and more TV & written press interviews are lining up.
* I am trying to manage these guys' optimism & desire to move quickly, keeping in mind they are not really familiar with the Wiki-way or our communities' policies & practices
* Bashkir (ba) & Sakha (sah) communities have shared advice about how to assure that local Wikimedia community stays clearly independent in a cultural environment where neither Education, nor GLAM programs will attract local partners unless those have a strong support of the regional or federal government entities.
* Looking forward to meet with my Wikimania-2017 roommate from the Philippines in Singapore on Aug.16 to collect some more input from Asia

>>> * about to get one with links published to various WMF & Wikimedia Russia projects, including promoting free licenses, Education & GLAM programs, etc.
>>> I'm periodically collecting these @ https://tt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Википедия:Безнең_турында_матбугатта#Ел_викимедиачысы when time permits, but there's more in my Facebook Messenger.
>>>
>>> CONTEXT
>>> This is also generating very positive attention on behalf of the Republic of Tatarstan government, as well as our regional NGO partner, Selet Youth Education Foundation, with whom yet unrecognized Tatar Wikimedians are jointly running Selet WikiSchool project. https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Education/News/May_2018/Selet_WikiSchool The latter want to introduce this joint initiative, as well as Wikimedia Russia executive director Stanislav Kozlovsky (Ph.D. in Psychology, Researcher & a Senior lecturer at Moscow State University) and myself to the President of Tatarstan during his visit to their Annual International Forum of Tatar-speaking High-School Age Youth on August 6th. Unrelated to that I was yesterday called up by a good acquaintance of mine (Tatarstan Vice Prime-Minister, Minister for IT https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_Shaykhutdinov ), who invited me to have a talk with him tomorrow about how promoting Wikimedia projects in wider Tatar-speaking world (only about 25% of Tatars live in Tatarstan) can help him get whatever current President wants him to do to develop Tatar language use online. There are some other Tatarstan Prime-Minister Office level things in the pipeline, & I am also waiting for a call from Russian Federation ex-IT Minister https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikolay_Nikiforov , whom I know from his years in Tatarstan government as well (until 2012). FYI: Wikimedia movement is still unknown in Russia, with local mass media outlets are predominantly speaking about Wikipedia in Russian when there is some lapse that can be exploited to show one's Russian patriotism & thus score some points (basically same political circus, as what we are seeing in U.S. with Russia-collusion story in the overdrive, just opposite direction), and here we get something to reverse the situation big time, explaining to the wide public that it's not only Ok, but even desirable they engage with Wikimedia projects.
>>>
>>> IDEA
>>> Keeping in mind that Tatarstan President is the head of both Russia-Islamic World Strategic Vision Group & Association of Innovative Regions of Russia, Jimmy gave me a-hell-of-an-opportunity for an elevator pitch for Wikimedia movement in Russia and some adjacent counties (think Turkey & Central Asia), and I would really hate seeing it go unused. I will do my part here (about CC-BY for regional government controlled websites, Wikipedia Education Program as an extracurricular activity in all secondary school & universities, GLAM, as well as some locally funded carrots for participants), but I also want your help in driving this to a home-run. Every fall Tatarstan President & the delegation is visiting Silicon Valley & other places of interest in U.S. & it would be great if we could set-up a physical visit to Wikimedia Foundation, with a first hand presentation of best international practices the movement if proud of & have some MoU on cooperation signed (as a bureaucratic basis for continuing the conversation) with either some department in Tatarstan government, just like the one you signed with the Mexican Ministry of Culture www.eluniversal.com.mx/cultura/secretaria-de-cultura-y-wikimedia-firman-convenio-de-colaboracion. To set the context, Tatarstan has such formal documents with a number of American companies & institutions, with our private English-speaking IT Univesity @ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Innopolis having been developed jointly with Carnegie Mellon University (with consultancy fees paid by Tatastan), we have Russia's first publicly funded hospital certified to be meeting https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joint_Commission requirements & plenty of U.S. investors @ our https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alabuga_Special_Economic_Zone .  On top of this, we could benefit from having Selet Youth Educational movement http://selet.biz/en/ to embrace Wiki even further, so maybe a similar MoU on collaboration between them and Wikiedu.org signed simultaneously would be great (I met LiAnna and Jami in Montreal last year & was really impressed with what these guys are doing).
>>>
>>> REQUEST
>>> Please shoot something my way before the same time tomorrow, for me to handle the meeting with Tatarstan Deputy Prime Minister more effectively to progressively open other opportunities I've touched on. On top of what I described above & my last year's ideas  @ https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Frhdkazan/Wiki4RegionalDevt (in Russian), I'll be bringing to the table topics of:
>>> * Wikidata
>>> * OSM, as well as a
>>> * WOK-like project for all things in Tatar (I was contacted by a local 9th grader who, on his own initiative with a help of a teacher, did something similar for students who want to train for Russian-language SAT/ACT type exam www.kakprav.com & now offered to develop such or bigger thing for Tatar). For more on WOK, see https://www.vanguardngr.com/2018/01/wikipedia-wok-seek-nigerian-content-online/
>>> * whatever else you or anybody else can help me think of until then & or later opportunities

There are plenty of possible answers; but to start with I suggest you
make contact with the people in the "Central Eastern European
Wikimedia Community" network:

   https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Central_and_Eastern_Europe

> & also engaging all Tatars globally (3/4 outside of Tatarstan, 1/5 outside of Russia).

For tips on working with a diaspora community, you might talk to
Susanna Mkrtchyan and her colleagues at Wikimedia Armenia.

As you're working in the Tatar language, the "Celtic Knot" conference,
for Wikipedias in smaller languages, may be of interest. You just
missed the 2018 event, but one is proposed for 2019.

Do post here again, if you have other, more specific, questions.

Good luck in your endeavours,

In reply to this post by Фархад Фаткуллин / Farkhad Fatkullin
Hi Farhad,

Thank you for your generosity with your time as you respond to the requests
and new opportunities.

I like Andy's suggestions. Wikimedia Armenia crossed my mind also as
potentially a good organization to contact for ideas, because I have the
impression that they have a good (but not excessively close) relationship
with their national government, and because they have a very successful
Wikipedia Education Program.

Although there seem to be many opportunities for you in the short term, my
guess is that you will be unable to take advantage of all of them, and that
some that you try will be more successful than others. That is all okay.

Please avoid burning yourself out. Hopefully you can work at a pace that is
reasonable for you and will lead to long-term successes. Also, hopefully
you can find people who want to help you, and have the time and the skills
to do so. You might try to contact people that you have met on-wiki who
could help you as you consider the opportunities and how you would like to
move forward. I have the impression that you already know many Wikimedians
who work on Russian Wikipedia, so hopefully you can get some help from them.

If you could share occasional updates about your progress, maybe by sending
an email to Wikimedia-l with once per quarter, I think that at least a few
people would be interested to read what you share.

Good luck,

Pine

Re: [Wikimedia-l] fallout from 2018 Wikimedian of the Year announcement

Фархад Фаткуллин / Farkhad Fatkullin
Dear colleagues,

Since yesterday all subdomains hosted @ http://tatarstan.ru/ (including websites of the http://president.tatarstan.ru/, the Cabinet http://prav.tatarstan.ru/, ministries/departments, state-owned organizations, municipalities and Representative offices of the Republic around Russia and abroad) moved to Creative Commons Attribution. The only exceptions are those of the First (ex-) President & the Parliament, that already had their own unique type free licenses (in Russian, non-standard).

Russian Wikinews requested me to draft an article & my counterparty at the Regional Ministry of InfoComm has gladly approved. I will probably need to find time for that today. That was the easy part. Some context: Russian President, Executive Branch of the Federal Government, both Chambers of the Federal Parliament, etc. are using Creative Commons Attribution for a while now, thanks to Senior Volunteers efforts of Wikimedia Russia members. I just communicated the benefits of this to the Regional (Republic of Tatarstan) Deputy Prime-Minister https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_Shaykhutdinov, head of the regional infocomm department & he championed it far and wide within his area of responsibility.

I started engaging high-school & university students into helping the Infocomm ministry people to learn what is Wikimedia like & how it works - Deputy Prime-Minister is interested in anything that can benefit Education, Heritage Outreach, etc. development in the region &  help in making culture of the Republic better known globally & promote Tatar language use online (Wikidata, GLAM, etc.). Another minister I met is excited with examples of Greek school children https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Education/News/July_2017/A_class_of_26_8-year-old_Wikipedia_article_creators & youth in Italy http://www.rivistabricks.it/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/BRICKS_4_2017.pdf & other places develop critical thinking and develop immunity to mass & social media stories painting the world black & white as they please (stories from any outlets, including the BBC or New York Times, have to be taken with a pinch of salt - there's no unbiased human). In parallel, we are starting a cooperation with private Cambridge International school in Kazan http://school.balacity.ru/ (the founders & the director know me, invited me for cooperation, key contact person was part of the meeting, I provided necessary initial links). I know that our youth is now inspired to organize a User Group, report on their Spring & Summer efforts at Wikimedia Conference Russia this September & take their existing Selet WikiSchool project even higher. https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Education/News/May_2018/Selet_WikiSchool , more stories coming.

Last night WMF Partnerships agreed to support me in organizing a videoconference type seminar with best practices in Education/GLAM/Heritage promotion/Wikidata/etc. to explain locals about how great is the Wikimedia movement (something mainly unheard of in Russia, even though Wikipedia is actually used). I would love to have you, my dear international colleagues, to find time to connect and give a video talk on some Use Case implementation during the upcoming public seminar, organized in conjunction with Tatarstan InfoComm ministry (whenever we get the dates they will be able to gather local crowd in the IT-Park in downtown Kazan). I will take care of the simultaneous interpretation — all the necessary equipment is there, so I'll try to find the funding & qualified people.

In parallel I'll continue working on organizing a short in-person version at WMF Headquarters for the President of the Republic, if and when we can fit it into his schedule (Tatarstan Deputy Prime-Minister - Regional Minister for InfoComm wanted this to take place during one of the annual regional government delegation visits to California). President Minnikhanov is a co-chair of the Association of Innovative Regions of Russia, as well as Russia-Islamic World Strategic Vision Group, so I think we can use Jimmy's well-timed pass to score well: spreading Wikimedia movement popularity throughout Russia and the Islamic world even further, helping in unblocking Turkey in the process.

"Imagine the world in which every human is a Wikimedian. That's my commitment!"

regards,
farhad

[Wikimedia-l] fallout from 2018 Wikimedian of the Year announcement

I just communicated the benefits of this to the Regional (Republic of Tatarstan) Deputy Prime-Minister https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_Shaykhutdinov, head of the regional infocomm department & he championed it far and wide within his area of responsibility.

I started engaging high-school & university students into helping the Infocomm ministry people to learn what is Wikimedia like & how it works - Deputy Prime-Minister is interested in anything that can benefit Education, Heritage Outreach, etc. development in the region & help in making culture of the Republic better known globally & promote Tatar language use online (Wikidata, GLAM, etc.). Another minister I met is excited with examples of Greek school children https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Education/News/July_2017/A_class_of_26_8-year-old_Wikipedia_article_creators & youth in Italy http://www.rivistabricks.it/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/BRICKS_4_2017.pdf & other places develop critical thinking and develop immunity to mass & social media stories painting the world black & white as they please (stories from any outlets, including the BBC or New York Times, have to be taken with a pinch of salt - there's no unbiased human). In parallel, we are starting a cooperation with private Cambridge International school in Kazan http://school.balacity.ru/ (the founders & the director know me, invited me for cooperation, key contact person was part of the meeting, I provided necessary initial links). I know that our youth is now inspired to organize a User Group, report on their Spring & Summer efforts at Wikimedia Conference Russia this September & take their existing Selet WikiSchool project even higher. https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Education/News/May_2018/Selet_WikiSchool , more stories coming.

Last night WMF Partnerships agreed to support me in organizing a videoconference type seminar with best practices in Education/GLAM/Heritage promotion/Wikidata/etc. to explain locals about how great is the Wikimedia movement (something mainly unheard of in Russia, even though Wikipedia is actually used). I would love to have you, my dear international colleagues, to find time to connect and give a video talk on some Use Case implementation during the upcoming public seminar, organized in conjunction with Tatarstan InfoComm ministry (whenever we get the dates they will be able to gather local crowd in the IT-Park in downtown Kazan). I will take care of the simultaneous interpretation — all the necessary equipment is there, so I'll try to find the funding & qualified people.

In parallel I'll continue working on organizing a short in-person version at WMF Headquarters for the President of the Republic, if and when we can fit it into his schedule (Tatarstan Deputy Prime-Minister - Regional Minister for InfoComm wanted this to take place during one of the annual regional government delegation visits to California). President Minnikhanov is a co-chair of the Association of Innovative Regions of Russia, as well as Russia-Islamic World Strategic Vision Group, so I think we can use Jimmy's well-timed pass to score well: spreading Wikimedia movement popularity throughout Russia and the Islamic world even further, helping in unblocking Turkey in the process.

"Imagine the world in which every human is a Wikimedian. That's my commitment!"

Alex Stinson-4
Thank you Farhard for sharing out the progress that you have been making as
a benefit of the Wikipedian of the Year! I look forward to continuing to
support these conversations, and hope that this kind of impact can repeat!

Cheers,

Re: [Wikimedia-l] fallout from 2018 Wikimedian of the Year announcement

In reply to this post by Фархад Фаткуллин / Farkhad Fatkullin
http://mic.tatarstan.ru/rus/index.htm/news/1273420.htm

The article is about the Republic of Tatarstan government portal http://www.tatarstan.ru/ and its subdomains now being available under Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International, just like a number of others throughout the country https://ru.wikimedia.org/wiki/Список_сайтов_со_свободным_использованием_материалов

It's probably the first time regional government website in the Russian Federation quoted Russian Wikinews article https://ru.wikinews.org/wiki/Главные_сайты_Татарстана_перешли_на_свободную_лицензию ― the part about local seminar initiative to be dedicated to Education, GLAM etc. was left out, but their press-service made the day of Russian Wikinews community by also being attentive to proper attribution.

farhad

Re: [Wikimedia-l] fallout from 2018 Wikimedian of the Year announcement

Фархад Фаткуллин / Farkhad Fatkullin
Dear colleagues,

On Monday, our high school Senior User:Тимерхан & myself met with the First President of Tatarstan, State Councillor of the Republic of Tatarstan, UNESCO Special Envoy on Intercultural Dialogue  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mintimer_Shaimiev where I received an unexpected offer to think about launching a Wiki-program on a publicly funded Tatar language satellite TV channel, and a request to prepare for a meeting with a group of regional ministers (tentatively end of October) and whomever I would like to invite if I can figure out how they can be of help in speeding up penetration of Wikimedia projects & respective skills into the mindustry of peopl having something  with respective fields.

This was the outcome of a two hour long conversation with the 81 y.o. elder statesman was around Tatar Wikipedia, growing Wikimedia movement in the region, using it as a channel to promote knowledge about cultural heritage, lifelong open learning and other issues related to my upcoming presentation at CEE Meeting 2018 in Lviv
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_CEE_Meeting_2018/Programme/Submission/Wikipedias_in_the_languages_of_Russia:_Growing_multilingualism_online and lightning talks there.

The invitation came on the Friday afternoon, so I was a little tense over the weekend but we managed OK

Today Russian Wikinews published our report on 1st of October meeting with Mintimer Shaimiev
https://ru.wikinews.org/wiki/Минтимер_Шаймиев_встретился_с_татароязычными_викимедистами
See all pictures from the meeting among my uploads via https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:ListFiles/Frhdkazan

The working title of "Preparing the population of Tatarstan and the Tatar speaking world for living in the Industry 4.0 Global Economy: What Wikimedia projects have to offer".
I have not yet have the time to identify which ministries, departments and other organizations (Tatmedia, National Museum, National Library, Regional TV & Radio company, etc.) are worth to be invited, so here I would very much welcome your recommendation  — it's a balancing act as we are limited on the volunteer time to adequately support each of these players, but we certainly don't want to miss those capable of demonstrating interesting results relatively quickly.

Tatarstan Deputy Prime-Minister - Minister for ICT Roman Shaykhutdinov has today inquired about possibility of engaging myself to deliver lectures on Advanced Uses of Wiki (I guess it's best to engage volunteers with extensive experience of presenting at various Wiki-conferences, Russian-speaking ones first of all). As for the open to the public introductory level wiki-seminar about Wiki and related practical Use Cases from various countries about using it in Education, GLAM, Wikidata applications, etc. - with speakers connecting over the video-conference & simultaneous interpretation support - it's offered to be organized locally in an IT-Park in a downtown Kazan during the last week of November (I guess WMF staff would be best able to help me with identifying most appropriate Use Cases and international volunteers that were responsible for their implementation, plus we'd have to figure out the schedule for their connection & possible overall routing - we might have plenty of folks around the world to benefit from this video-conference, as well as professional Russian-speaking simultaneous interpretation of the presentations). Plus Roman invited local Tatar Wikimedians to include two Russian-speaking schools into the pilot run.

I would go about translating the above Wikinews into Tatar & English (as well as the report on 2018 Wikimedia Conference Russia https://ru.wikinews.org/?curid=185095 sometime next week — as I have to finish my presentation plan and slides for 2018 CEE Meeting shortly.

Regards,
farhad

The only exceptions are those of the First (ex-) President & the Parliament, that already had their own unique type free licenses (in Russian, non-standard).
>>>
>>>   Russian Wikinews requested me to draft an article & my counterparty at the Regional Ministry of InfoComm has gladly approved. I will probably need to find time for that today. That was the easy part. Some context: Russian President, Executive Branch of the Federal Government, both Chambers of the Federal Parliament, etc. are using Creative Commons Attribution for a while now, thanks to Senior Volunteers efforts of Wikimedia Russia members. I just communicated the benefits of this to the Regional (Republic of Tatarstan) Deputy Prime-Minister https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_Shaykhutdinov, head of the regional infocomm department & he championed it far and wide within his area of responsibility.
>>>
>>>   I started engaging high-school & university students into helping the Infocomm ministry people to learn what is Wikimedia like & how it works - Deputy Prime-Minister is interested in anything that can benefit Education, Heritage Outreach, etc. development in the region & help in making culture of the Republic better known globally & promote Tatar language use online (Wikidata, GLAM, etc.). Another minister I met is excited with examples of Greek school children https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Education/News/July_2017/A_class_of_26_8-year-old_Wikipedia_article_creators & youth in Italy http://www.rivistabricks.it/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/BRICKS_4_2017.pdf & other places develop critical thinking and develop immunity to mass & social media stories painting the world black & white as they please (stories from any outlets, including the BBC or New York Times, have to be taken with a pinch of salt - there's no unbiased human). In parallel, we are starting a cooperation with private Cambridge International school in Kazan http://school.balacity.ru/ (the founders & the director know me, invited me for cooperation, key contact person was part of the meeting, I provided necessary initial links). I know that our youth is now inspired to organize a User Group, report on their Spring & Summer efforts at Wikimedia Conference Russia this September & take their existing Selet WikiSchool project even higher. https://outreach.wikimedia.org/wiki/Education/News/May_2018/Selet_WikiSchool , more stories coming.
>>>
>>>   Last night WMF Partnerships agreed to support me in organizing a videoconference type seminar with best practices in Education/GLAM/Heritage promotion/Wikidata/etc. to explain locals about how great is the Wikimedia movement (something mainly unheard of in Russia, even though Wikipedia is actually used). I would love to have you, my dear international colleagues, to find time to connect and give a video talk on some Use Case implementation during the upcoming public seminar, organized in conjunction with Tatarstan InfoComm ministry (whenever we get the dates they will be able to gather local crowd in the IT-Park in downtown Kazan). I will take care of the simultaneous interpretation — all the necessary equipment is there, so I'll try to find the funding & qualified people.
>>>
>>>   In parallel I'll continue working on organizing a short in-person version at WMF Headquarters for the President of the Republic, if and when we can fit it into his schedule (Tatarstan Deputy Prime-Minister - Regional Minister for InfoComm wanted this to take place during one of the annual regional government delegation visits to California). President Minnikhanov is a co-chair of the Association of Innovative Regions of Russia, as well as Russia-Islamic World Strategic Vision Group, so I think we can use Jimmy's well-timed pass to score well: spreading Wikimedia movement popularity throughout Russia and the Islamic world even further, helping in unblocking Turkey in the process.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] fallout from 2018 Wikimedian of the Year announcement

Pine W
Hi Farhad,

I'm very impressed with your successes so far.

My main concern is how much of this you seem to be doing by yourself. I
hope that you have a group of people who are collaborating with you so that
you don't feel responsible for doing everything personally, and that you
aren't putting yourself into personal financial difficulty due to the
amount of time that you're spending on Wikimedia activities.

Regarding which people would be good to invite to a conference, I think
that GLAM and educational organizations would be natural partners so I
suggest starting with them.

WMF might be willing to provide you with some advice and/or funding for
GLAM or education related work if you request it, although the wait times
for WMF "Rapid Grants" funding seem to have become lengthy, so I suggest
that if you want funding from that program that you should request it at
least two full months in advance and not rely on receiving it in time for
any particular deadline.

I'm glad to hear that you're participating in Wikimedia CEE and I hope that
the affiliates in that group can provide you with good advice.

Best wishes,

Pine

Re: [Wikimedia-l] fallout from 2018 Wikimedian of the Year announcement

Фархад Фаткуллин / Farkhad Fatkullin
Dear colleagues,

Below is my October activities report & description of upcoming events

1) On Oct.13-14 at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_CEE_Meeting_2018 we presented some of the things we are doing in Russia (FYI: without any WMF grants). See details at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/CEE/Newsletter/October_2018/Contents/Russia_report

2) On Oct.20 I had a two hour long meeting with the Deputy head of Tatarstan Presidential Adiministration responsible for internal policy http://president.tatarstan.ru/eng/apparat/structure?person_id=19792&department_id=49064 who officially invited me to engage Wikimedia Russia and other Wikimedia movement volunteers to develop "Smart wiki-region" roadmap for regional authorities throughout the Russian Federation to start learning about the Wikimedia movement and understanding how partnering therewith could be of mutual interests. This was a follow up of the Oct.1 meeting with Mintimer Shaimiev https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikimedia-l/2018-October/091151.html, but mainly around my last year's musings I finally finished translating into English today @ https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Frhdkazan/Wiki4RegionalDevt

3) On Oct.23 We have started growing the project on WMRU-wiki at https://ru.wikimedia.org/wiki/Умный_регион (currently in Russian only), using also eponymous thread at [wikimedia-ru] mailing list (last message https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikimedia-ru/2018-November/004914.html ).

4) In mid-November we are expecting to have a presentation of the project and our domestic experience https://ru.wikimedia.org/wiki/Selet_WikiSchool  at the large meeting called on by the ex-President of Tatarstan, State Councillor to the Republic, UNESCO Special envoy for Intercultural Dialogue Mintimer Shaimiev http://shaimiev.tatarstan.ru/eng - with invitation of
* First Deputy Head of the Tatarstan Presidential Administration (http://president.tatarstan.ru/eng/apparat/structure?person_id=32&department_id=84096),
* a large body of regional ministers
** Tatar community affairs http://prav.tatarstan.ru/eng/pravit/3.htm
** Education and science http://mon.tatarstan.ru/eng/rukov/minister.htm
** ICT http://mic.tatarstan.ru/eng/minister.htm
** Culture http://mincult.tatarstan.ru/eng/rukov/minister.htm
** Youth affairs http://prav.tatarstan.ru/rus/pravit/ministr-min-molodezhi
* head of regional media holding http://tatmedia.tatarstan.ru/eng/director.htm
* head of the Institute of Tatar encyclopedia http://antat.ru/ru/ite/staff/5679/ 
* head of the House of Friendship of Nations of Tatarstan http://addnt.ru/house/management/director/

5) Tomorrow morning I will be meeting with the Vice-Primier - Minister for the ICT https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_Shaykhutdinov for preliminary discussions, then my high-school senior Timerkhan https://tt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Кулланучы:Тимерхан  will assist him the next day at the preparatory meeting with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mintimer_Shaimiev.  

6) I didn't yet have time to think in detail about the potential schedule or invited participants of the first public Wiki-seminar in Tatarstan, meant to expose locals to the Wikimedia movement and its best practices even if only via the video-conference (which I mentioned in the previous update), because I am doing this in between of my rather demanding work and some limited family life. The topic will most likely surface among other things tomorrow.

regards,
farhad

Re: [Wikimedia-l] fallout from 2018 Wikimedian of the Year announcement

Фархад Фаткуллин / Farkhad Fatkullin
Dear colleagues,

This is a heads-up on the fact that on Jan.29 I will be speaking in Tatar (with simultaneous interpretation of my words into Russian) at the Republic of Tatarstan Ministry for ICT closing conference for 2018 in front of the President of the Republic, Russia's Federal minister for ICT, members of Tatarstan government, industry & the press, possibly some participants from nearby regional ministries.

I will have some 7-10 min to present on https://ru.wikimedia.org/wiki/Smart_region , rough English translation for the base page completed today.

It will be a basic intro level talk accompanied by slides about some  things that can be appropriately mentioned without overburdening the public hearing about Wiki-community activities for the first time in their lives. I will email you draft text around the end of the week (once I am comfortable with it), with some ideas on the slides I will play along my speech and a list of recommended follow-on measures.

Expected outcome: Presidential instruction to the Tatarstan government to for a cross-departmental working group to study what ICT ministry led Wikimedia working group (since August 2018) has came up with & look into possible way of integrating this into Tatarstan social life (I was offered to formulate it myself today).

Other related Wikimedia Russia news:

* On or around Feb.8, we are to have first follow-on introduction of Wikipedia Education Program to wider professors & students' body of Kazan Federal University Institute for International Relations, with director of which we had a productive meeting on Dec.21, following the events described in https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/CEE/Newsletter/December_2018/Contents/Russia_report


* On Feb.28-March 1 we are invited to field speakers for http://eduforumkazan.ru/ (attended by Russia's Federal Minister for Education and her team)

regards,
farhad

Re: [Wikimedia-l] fallout from 2018 Wikimedian of the Year announcement

Фархад Фаткуллин / Farkhad Fatkullin
In reply to this post by Фархад Фаткуллин / Farkhad Fatkullin
Dear colleagues,

You can track my preparation in English @ https://ru.wikimedia.org/wiki/Умный_регион/05.02.2019/en (date move to accommodate VIP participants' schedules).

I had to skim my original 18 minute text to under 7.

I intend to touch on most of what had to go via the Slides which will accompany my talk.

Tatar components will be prepared last, as Russian and English are best tools for getting feedback from across the Wiki-world.

regards,
farhad

Re: [Wikimedia-l] fallout from 2018 Wikimedian of the Year announcement

Фархад Фаткуллин / Farkhad Fatkullin
In reply to this post by Фархад Фаткуллин / Farkhad Fatkullin
Some news:

I managed to get vocal approval of the proposal to transfer Wiki-competencies to Tatarstan public by Federal Deputy Prime-Minister Maxim Akimov and had Regional President Rustam Minnikhanov express his invitation to the subject-minister (Vice Prime-Minister of Tatarstan - InfoComm minister Roman Shaykhutdinov) to prepare necessary proposals for organizing the process in a successful scalable way. I will have to do more thinking and writing now so as to try have this implemented first in my Republic, then across Russia.

I was given less than a minute during pre-Conference tour of the project stands prepared by corporations and state enterprises (without slides or any visual support), so I had to skim to the very facts and the value proposition that would get their attention.

On a more tangible side, https://ru.wikimedia.org/wiki/Selet_WikiSchool that I started back in 2016, will get support from the regional budget & thus expand. Currently this is on the shoulders of a team consisting of high-school senior, a University freshman and a sophomore/junior from one rural school.

regards,
farhad

>>  Dear colleagues,
>>
>>  This is a heads-up on the fact that on Jan.29 I will be speaking in Tatar (with simultaneous interpretation of my words into Russian) at the Republic of Tatarstan Ministry for ICT closing conference for 2018 in front of the President of the Republic, Russia's Federal minister for ICT, members of Tatarstan government, industry & the press, possibly some participants from nearby regional ministries.
>>
>>  I will have some 7-10 min to present on https://ru.wikimedia.org/wiki/Smart_region , rough English translation for the base page completed today.
>>
>>  It will be a basic intro level talk accompanied by slides about some  things that can be appropriately mentioned without overburdening the public hearing about Wiki-community activities for the first time in their lives. I will email you draft text around the end of the week (once I am comfortable with it), with some ideas on the slides I will play along my speech and a list of recommended follow-on measures.
>>
>>  Expected outcome: Presidential instruction to the Tatarstan government to for a cross-departmental working group to study what ICT ministry led Wikimedia working group (since August 2018) has came up with & look into possible way of integrating this into Tatarstan social life (I was offered to formulate it myself today).

This was a follow up of the Oct.1 meeting with Mintimer Shaimiev https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikimedia-l/2018-October/091151.html, but mainly around my last year's musings I finally finished translating into English today @ https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Frhdkazan/Wiki4RegionalDevt

>>>
>>>   6) I didn't yet have time to think in detail about the potential schedule or invited participants of the first public Wiki-seminar in Tatarstan, meant to expose locals to the Wikimedia movement and its best practices even if only via the video-conference (which I mentioned in the previous update), because I am doing this in between of my rather demanding work and some limited family life. The topic will most likely surface among other things tomorrow.

>>>>    Hi Farhad,
>>>>
>>>>    I'm very impressed with your successes so far.
>>>>
>>>>    My main concern is how much of this you seem to be doing by yourself. I
>>>>    hope that you have a group of people who are collaborating with you so that

>>>>    Regarding which people would be good to invite to a conference, I think

>>>>
>>>>    WMF might be willing to provide you with some advice and/or funding for
>>>>    GLAM or education related work if you request it, although the wait times

>>>>    I'm glad to hear that you're participating in Wikimedia CEE and I hope that
