Pernyataan

Tahun-tahun berikutnya akan menjadi tantangan bagi pergerakan kita (dalam hal teknologi baru, retensi pengguna, peningkatan keanekaragaman, arahan pengembangan konten). Saya ingin membantu membentuk ulang strategi & pengelolaan kita, [para Akademisi], juga untuk [birokratisasi] pergerakan.

Pengalaman saya:

Wikimedia

Saya telah terpilih untuk memimpin Komite Penyebaran Dana untuk tiga periode. Saya seorang pelayan (steward), dan seorang checkuser/admin/birokrat (pl-wiki). Mantan-ombudsman. Saya menyelenggarakan lokakarya tentang strategi untuk cabang-cabang Wikimedia.

Akademik

Saya seorang dosen manajemen yang memimpin NeRDS. Saya menulis etnografi pertama Wikipedia (Common Knowledge?, Stanford University Press). Saya memberikan kuliah umum di Cornell, Harvard, Berkeley, MIT.

Profesional

Saya anggota dewan penasihat Copernicus Science Center (USD 20.000.000 anggaran/tahun), dan menerima dana hibah program Pengajaran Bahasa Inggris dari Yayasan Nida. Saya secara profesional memberikan nasihat strategi, dan saya pernah menjadi mentor/juri untuk kompetisi startup internasional (misalnya Intel Business Challenge, KIICS).

Dalam hal keberagaman

Saya orang Eropa dan saya menyadari ada keistimewaan lain (ras, jenis kelamin dll.) yang saya rasakan manfaatnya. Namun, pengalaman saya tumbuh besar dalam suatu pemerintahan yang menerapkan sensor dan propaganda, dan juga kesederhanaan (orang tua saya berpenghasilan ~30 USD per bulan) memperkaya kesadaran saya tentang keberagaman dan masalah-masalah Selatan Global. Saya pernah tinggal di luar negeri di AS dan Denmark.

Pernyataan Kita saat ini berada di persimpangan jalan, baik sebagai suatu pergerakan maupun suatu komunitas.

Pernyataan The mission is to disseminate knowledge. The obstacles to negotiate are very varied, including scepticism and misunderstanding by outsiders, and good old human nature from insiders. We must reach out for cooperation to those who can help us build, in schools, colleges, universities and professions; and as providers to all those who by poverty or social discrimination have knowledge withheld from them, as well as to those who want to complete assignments or revise for quizzes. So we need to communicate as fully possible with all those who engage with us in whatever form.

Pernyataan Are we reaching our goal of enabling every human being to access the sum of all human knowledge? What should we do to further the mission? Participation and collaboration are key elements of the movement and its spirit, but these need trust to be well established. We should develop a path away from the mentality of "us vs them" that we have experienced in many occasions.
About me

I discovered Wikipedia through the free software world. I begun editing in 2007 and since then I have dedicated a growing share of my free time to Wikimedia: I have been elected in 2010 to the board of Wikimedia Italia where I have been Program Coordinator (2010-2011), Vicepresident (2011-2014) and finally Treasurer (2014-). In 2012 I helped organising Wiki Loves Monuments in Italy and in 2013 I joined the WLM international team. In July 2013 I have been elected to the Funds Dissemination Committee (this was my candidacy statement).

In 2013-2014 I worked in a research centre in Trento (Italy) and my work revolved around OpenStreetMap and Wikipedia. I have a M.Sc. in Physics and since November 2014, I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Trento, Italy.

When I was running for the FDC a friend and long-time Wikipedian asked me "Why aren't you running for the board?", my answer was: "Because the path is long, but it should be walked", this is why I am running for the board, because I want to bring my experience and view in.

Pernyataan The Wikimedia movement, the best thing since sliced bread, faces a challenge that needs to be overcome sooner rather than later; it is the rift between the Foundation and the editor community. This challenge is not just about communication. The Foundation has grown beyond its own expectations. It is now protruding into software development, media literacy, Internet governance, and education. Despite the current abundance of donations the question of what its core business is, needs to be asked and answered.

I am a lecturer of Computer Science at the Polytechnic of Namibia. I was a member of its Senate for five years, and the head of the Computer Networking department for three. I am researching and writing about the Wikimedia phenomenon as part of my work and as a hobby. I do outreach, lobbying, experiments, and critical analysis. I have presented Wiki[m|p]edia-related thoughts on conferences and in publications, scientific and popular. As such I tick the boxes in the Call for candidates: I reside in Africa, I have experience with a small language project in the incubator. I know and learn and teach about technology, and I have management experience of projects and people. Besides that I am editing English Wikipedia to improve the coverage of Namibian politics, geography, and history.

I’m a founding member of Wikimedia España, and served as its Vice-President, as well as being involved in international cooperation through Iberocoop.

I’m currently serving my first term on the Board, which has included the ED transition and some high-profile staff changes. It is said that Calm seas don’t make good sailors, and I think it’s true. Being now familiar with Board dynamics and how the WMF works, I offer my experience to effectively support our shared vision, ensuring diversity is at the heart of WMF’s strategic efforts to retain and increase editorship. Our volunteers are our key advantage. I believe the WMF is here to serve Wikipedia and its sister projects, and to support our communities while we face the challenges ahead together. Times of change are challenging: I’m deeply committed to broadening channels for community participation in WMF governance and policymaking. You can count on me for that.

Pernyataan Wikimedia is a modern wonder - and yet, it must change: most of our projects, as they are today, cannot truly succeed. To achieve our mission, we must increase the effectivity of every single contributor. At the same time, the communities are often seen as change resistant - but falsely so: they do welcome change, done right, as I have shown with Wikidata.

I joined Wikipedia in 2003, was the first admin on the Croatian Wikipedia and co-created Semantic MediaWiki (used at NASA, WHO, FSF, translatewiki, etc). I co-wrote WMDE’s first EU research grant, RENDER (budget 4.4M€). With the communities, WMF and WMDE, I developed the Wikidata proposal, secured 2M$ in donations, hired and led the team. Wikidata became the biggest source of new contributors in the past decade. Now at Google, I help to release Freebase content to Wikidata.

I have

  • led large changes in our projects
  • secured major donations and funding
  • worked in small and large Wikimedia projects
  • increased individual effectiveness
  • sustainably engaged new contributors

I worked with and understand the strengths and weaknesses of our infrastructure, the MediaWiki software, the communities - and how they interact.

In the last twelve years, Wikimedia has become an important part of my life - case in point, my wife, also a Wikipedian, and I met at Wikimania! As a trustee, I would offer my skills and experiences to guide and help Wikimedia in the changes ahead of us.

Pernyataan When I started using Wikipedia back in 2004, internet was rare in my country; we didn’t have any good keyboard to write in our language, there was no one who could show me how to write a Wikipedia article or at least tell that I too can write an article. So, it was not until 2008 that I started contributing on Wikipedia on a regular basis. That’s the challenge we still face in the developing regions of the world - the global south where I belong to.

From the start of my involvement, I've been focusing on building the Wikimedia community in Bangladesh, picking volunteers and grooming them up. I am a founder member & Treasurer of WM Bangladesh. Now we have a growing, active and vibrant community. I’ve been involved in organizing most of the Wikimedia events in Bangladesh, from planning to execution, from arranging logistics to running sessions. Some of these events are: Wikipedia's 10th Anniversary Programs in Dhaka-2011, first ever Bengali WP Unconference-2012, WP Zero Launch Event in Dhaka-2013, Nationwide Bengali WP 10th Anniversary Programs - 2014 & 2015.

As a FDC Advisory Group member, I took part in formulating the FDC framework for WMF. I am a member of WMF’s Funds Dissemination Committee for 3 years & served as Vice-Chair for 2 terms.

I've completed undergrad in Finance, MBA in Technology & Operations and have 7 years’ experience in financial sector. I believe I can bring diverse perspective & diversity to WMF board.

Wikimedia

Impressed by Wikipedia, I have started my contributions in Telugu and Urdu Wikipedia. Inspired by the motto of WMF, Free Knowledge and Open Source, I have been working in content creation in Wikipedia to enrich it. I have a passion in outreach too, in this regard I have been working to bring Wikipedia to the masses of Indian Sub-continent. Recently I have created Urdu Wikipedia India User group to bring awareness of Wikimedia movement in Urdu speaking clusters of India.

Aims and goals

  • Help Indic language communities in content creation and outreach programs.
  • Help User groups to collaborate each other and with the WMF.
  • Bring Wikimedia to masses through media for a broader use of Free Knowledge.
  • Create a road map for Indic language User groups to do better from the past learning.
  • Unify the diversified communities, to distribute free knowledge.

Pernyataan We have a lot of excellent candidates, many of which have a great deal of experience. My prior work is visible on my user page. I, however, think we should concentrate on discussing the issues that currently face the WM movement and how to solve them.

Some of our challenges include:

  • shrinking editor numbers especially on En Wikipedia
  • undisclosed paid advocacy
  • poor template compatibility between languages
  • copyrighted material being added to Wikipedia and not being removed
  • software development that has not been supported by the editing community
  • lack of breadth of content in languages other than English and major European languages
  • use of language that is more complicated than needed
  • like minded organizations wishing to support our work but not knowing how

Some of these have relatively simple technical fixes. Others can be addressed by collaborating with other organizations. All can be improved by prioritizing a better relationship between the editor communities and the WMF. About a year ago I cut back on work as an ER physician to give more time to improve Wikipedia. I have worked to try to address all of the above issues. While some may never be fully solvable, the WMF in collaboration with the community can and should do much more to address them. I will prioritize efforts to bring this about.

Pernyataan I am a content writer on English-Wikipedia with nearly 58,000 edits and more than 250 starts. I'm also well versed on Wikipolitics through participation and reading at Jimbotalk, Wikipediocracy (where I contribute as "Randy from Boise"), ArbCom, and AN/I.

We hear that the community doesn't own Wikipedia, that WMF owns Wikipedia. This is actually true. But we are not helpless. We, the community, have three designated seats on the WMF Board to provide direct input as fundamental policy decisions are actually made.

We, the volunteers, are in an uneven power relationship with WMF's expanding paid staff. We see the negative effects in the SuperProtection fiasco on De-WP and the seemingly inexorable move towards implementation of the execrable Flow.

This is why the community desperately needs alert, critical, questioning voices for its seats on the 10-member WMF Board.

The WMF Board has the vital function of oversight of a multimillion dollar charity's professional staff, organizational goals, vision, and general practices. Don't expect strong oversight from those afraid to question authority and to say their piece when necessary.

Thanks for your consideration.

Pernyataan I have been on the WMF Board since 2009, and chair the Audit Committee.

The WMF is restructuring this year, open to new ideas. It doesn't want to continue as before: with large, slow projects and troubled community relations. We should all take this chance to bridge WMF-community gaps:

  • Replace centralized programs with distributed ones
  • Design software with the communities that will use them
  • Solve pressing project needs (experiment on new spaces instead!)
  • Use targeted messaging to inspire contributing knowledge more than money
About me

On-wiki, I've been an editor, translator, publisher, and steward. I led Wikimania in 2006 and planned the Kiswahili WP Challenge in 2009.  

I've lived in Germany & Kenya.  As Director of Content at One Laptop per Child, I oversaw sending Wikipedia and Wikijunior to 2M children in the developing world. I am currently a Fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center, and chair the technical committee of the Digital Public Library of America.

This will be my last run for the Board. Supporting Wikimedia is one of the joys of my life, but I support term limits and have proposed one for adoption this year.

Pernyataan WMF Vision

We can be a lot more than we are. Two main barriers:

Community tools: Mediawiki falls far behind contemporary norms in user experience for non-readers, e.g. group communication, community development, cross platform experience, API/developer platform. Obvious symptoms: The developer community is tiny. Wikiprojects are lacklustre, but could be a huge source of community growth. Sister projects exist in silos, hindering contribution & readership. We could be the home of data journalism on the web, but we aren’t.

Organisational outreach: We are largely ignored within the wider media landscape; it is critical to our mission to develop more effective ways of interacting with academia, education, politics & government, journalism, publishers of all types, the startup ecosystem, third sector etc, beyond expecting them to become editors.


About me

I was originator and conference director for Wikimania London, the largest ever gathering of Wikimedians & an enormous outreach project. In 2014 I was awarded UK Wikimedian of the Year. I received an IEG Grant for Open Access Reader, a tool to identify significant academic research missing from Wikipedia - an example of a new type of editing, with potentially a new audience. I am currently community strategist for the third largest political party in the UK, & previously was community strategist for the largest UK startup hub.

Pernyataan Dear fellow-Wikimedians,

the coming years will be a challenge for our movement. Mobile contributions, organised vandalism, paid advocacy, and above all - changing numbers of volunteers. People should come first. We need to appreciate our volunteers. I believe in direct communication with boardmembers. Full discussion on all issues. If 1000 people want to talk, that is only 3 a day. I believe in less bureaucracy. Simply ask what you need, and we can discuss it. Less paperwork. Hire developers to solve small software requests.

Contributions

I mostly write articles and add images to pages. I’m a steward, admin on wikidata and bureaucrat and ex-arbcom at the Dutch Wikipedia. Also an OTRS-volunteer.

Wikimedia

I'm a member of WM Netherlands and WM Belgium, and assist/coordinate starter courses, GLAM cooperations and activities. Wikipedia won the Erasmus Prize, and I discussed this on television. I currently work with the WMF, to get an online volunteer knighted.

Professional

Medical intern from the Netherlands, with bachelors in medicine and biochemistry. Work at the plastic surgery department of Utrecht University Childrens Hospital, and am a Basic life support instructor.

On diversity

I'm Malaysian Chinese and Dutch. Lived several months with my family in Malaysia and spend time in South America (Curaçao). I assisted at Gender Gap meetings. Am against discrimination in all forms.
