2019 talk:Meetups/Autistic meetup
Hi AnneJea. Thank you for creating this! :) I hope to attend (mostly to listen/learn-more), although with the late-hour of the schedule I won't promise anything! ;)
I was wondering if you thought it might be useful to add some links into the project page, somehow. I.e. I know of these interesting and related resources:
- m:Learning patterns/Avoiding sensory overload at Wikimedia-events <- this one especially!
- w:en:Wikipedia:WikiProject Autism and w:fr:Projet:Autisme
- w:en:Wikipedia:High-functioning autism and Asperger's editors (essay)
- w:en:User:ThatPeskyCommoner/The Autie Pact
- m:Aspergian Wikimedians and d:Q9490497 ("Category:Wikipedians with Autism" at 3 wikis)
- m:Para-Wikimedians Community User Group (proposed)
- m:Strategy/Wikimedia movement/2018-20/Working Groups/Diversity
- m:Strategy/Wikimedia movement/2018-20/Working Groups/Community Health
and I wonder if one goal for the meetup might be to collect any more existing resources into a list on this page? Perhaps something that could eventually become a hub-page at meta-wiki?
- The main aim of this meetup is first sharing our experiences in an open discussion. We may develop this aspect as well, depending on where our talks will lead us :) I am already thinking to create a meta page about autism and Wikimedia. By the way, the page w:fr:Wikipédia:Contributeurs autistes sur Wikipédia is way more developped than the English one now. Plus, Asperger's syndrome does not belong anymore to the official classifications of autism and its use is very criticized, and for "high-functionning autism" as well.
- I also made several things about Wikimedia/Wikipedia and autism in the past: How to make your event more autistic-friendly (English, original French, French retranscription) at the last French Wikiconvention, and What the Wikimedia projects can bring to autistic people (Ce que les projets Wikimedia peuvent apporter aux personnes autistes) for another lecture.
- But this may be an idea for a working group for a future Wikimania.
- Thanks! AnneJea (talk) 08:15, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
