Spectrum links[edit source]

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:

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?

Just a thought. I'll leave it with you to decide whether/how to incorporate it into the page and the meetup. :) Best wishes, Quiddity (talk) 00:54, 29 July 2019 (UTC)Reply

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 for the additional links, and the notes (I've now researched and learned a bit more). :) Quiddity (talk) 16:45, 30 July 2019 (UTC)Reply
