2019:Meetups/Wikimania remote meetup

From Wikimania
We're aiming to facilitate interaction amongst and between on-site and remote participants

About[edit | edit source]

This page is meant to facilitate a remote meetup at Wikimania 2019 about remote participation in Wikimanias. Folks attending Wikimania on-site are most welcome to participate individually or in groups.

Timing[edit | edit source]

It is being proposed to run about twice:

  • on Saturday August 17 from 20:00 Swedish time (i.e 18:00 UTC) for initially an hour but possibly longer
  • on Sunday August 18, from 11:30 am Swedish time (i.e. 9:30 UTC) as a remote viewing party of the session "[[2019:Environmental sustainability/Panel on coverage of environmental topics|Climate change, civil engineering, and butterflies - a panel on how to cover environmental sustainability topics on Wikimedia projects]", which is to be live-streamed via https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4N-RJ89I24 (which still states the initial starting time of 9:30 am)

Mode of connection[edit | edit source]

We're still figuring this out.

For simplicity, let's use https://meet.jit.si/Wikimania2019 as a starting point (preferably with the video switched off to save bandwidth), taking notes in the etherpad if anything goes wrong. This meeting can be joined by phone, e.g. via tapping +1.512.402.2718,,1861959595# or using any other dial-in number listed at https://meet.jit.si/static/dialInInfo.html?room=Wikimania2019 . If you are connecting by phone for audio and via the Jitsi room, then make sure to join the latter without connecting to audio: https://meet.jit.si/Wikimania2019#config.startSilent=true .

However, mishaps are likely, so we are exploring other options, including ones that require less bandwidth. If you have suggestions in this regard, please put them forward.
