|<-- Theo10011 has left freenode (Client Quit)

Subha Hi Arun,
|<-- gkjohn has left freenode (Quit: Page closed)
Subha sure, i got to few things to discuss abt Odia Wiki academy
arjunaraoc_ Subha: can you cover Shiju's proposals for reviving wikipedias and your thoughts
arjunaraoc_ also
Subha sure
arjunaraoc_ thx Subha
arunram hello
srikanthlogic feels we are missing theo who is pro in driving IRC hours
arunram Folks
arunram let me take the lead ...
-->| RadhaKrishna_ (75c052ec@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #wikimedia-in
arunram for starters let us discuss the SIGs and the plans for SIGs
Subha Hi RK
RadhaKrishna_ Hi Subhashish
Noopur28 +100 @arunram
arunram the intention of the SIGs is to form a volunteer task force
arunram that can plan for goals that can be set for the projects in those languages
Subha yes, and conduct more outreach campaigns
jairodz Could someone change the channel topic.
arunram SIGs are either city or language focussed
Noopur28 Sounds good. Is there some hierarchy there?
arunram for now we have SIG chairs who have volunteered for some languages and cities
Noopur28 ok
arunram we need to do two things
arunram get more SIGs boot strapped
arunram and get the current SIGS moving interms of goals and actions
arunram no it is not meant to be hierarchial but flat
arjunaraoc_ Hi RadhaKrishna_
arunram the SIG chair is only a lead for the task force for the SIG
RadhaKrishna_ Hi ArjunaRao
Noopur28 but u do expect these chairs to tell us all what their SIG is upto?
arunram would like to hear suggestions from all on how we can make SIGs effective
arjunaraoc_ thx arunram for the context setting.
arjunaraoc_ We have Radhakrishna, Bangalore SIG Chair on the chat.
RadhaKrishna_ I will breif some of my plans
arunram I have some suggestions to offer...
arjunaraoc_ Thx RadhaKrishna_
Subha Welcome RK,
RadhaKrishna_ I am Bangalore SIG chair
|<-- DRFUAD_ has left freenode (Quit: Page closed)
arunram Each of the SIGS should look at a task force of volunteers passionate about that SIG
naveenpf hi noopur each sig has kept there priorities set in the SIG pages
Noopur28 IMHO it would be great if the SIG had diversity, like ppl who take up spl responsibilities.
RadhaKrishna_ I am planning to conduct wikiAcademy in corporate companies
arunram prefereable across geographies
arunram the task force can comeup with pans for that SIG
arunram specific goals, projects, initiaives
-->| ShijuAlex (3bb2dc4b@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #wikimedia-in
arunram over to Radhakrishna
arjunaraoc_ RadhaKrishna_: just wait till arunram finishes the top level clarifications
RadhaKrishna_ yes
Subha Hi Shiju
naveenpf hi shiju
arjunaraoc_ RadhaKrishna_: you can go ahead now
RadhaKrishna_ I go now: I plan to start conducting wikiAcademy in corporate companies starting with my company Alcatel-Lucent
Subha yes, and SIG chairs can also concentrate on other languages apart from their languages
arunram Noopur28 the SIG are welcome to come up with ideas to carry out their activities
ShijuAlex hi all, good evening. carry on the discussions
[21:26] Subha yes, thats a good idea
[21:26] RadhaKrishna_ in Manyata Embassy Tech park, we have many companies. and around 1 lakh s/w engineers
[21:27] arunram go ahead Radhakrishna
[21:27] RadhaKrishna_ In my company I got a slot in January 2nd week
[21:27] arunram ok
[21:27] arjunaraoc_ RadhaKrishna_: that's great.hope it will be a good begining in reaching out to corporates
[21:27] RadhaKrishna_ also, planning to conduct a very brief talks in locall communities
[21:28] RadhaKrishna_ one such community is marathi mitra mandal
[21:28] arunram my request would be to expand the local volunteer base at bangalore
[21:28] RadhaKrishna_ it is a community of marathi speaking people living in bangalore
[21:28] Noopur28 do u guys have local SPICMACAY chapters?
[21:28] arunram it is now down to a few regualr people....
[21:28] Noopur28 they already have a filtered volunteer base
[21:28] Noopur28 might be useful to tap into
[21:28] Subha sorry to interrupt, @arunram and @arjunaraoc_ can we have a calender to update all the activities by SIG ?
[21:29] arunram not yet Subha
[21:29] arunram but that is a good suggestion
[21:29] RadhaKrishna_ may be we can have google group calendar
[21:29] Noopur28 +1
[21:29] Subha hmm
[21:29] srikanthlogic suggests more PR in media for monthly meetups
[21:29] naveenpf 23-Dec-2011 WikiAcademy @ OUCIP, Hyderabad
[21:29] arjunaraoc_ SIG pages can be used for advance planning. once finalised, they can move to main page of under events section
[21:29] naveenpf 30-Dec-2011 Wiki Academy @ P S R Rengasamy college of engineering for women
[21:29] srikanthlogic esp Bangalore ones
[21:29] naveenpf 05-Jan-2011 Wiki Academy @ Cochin University of Science and Technology
[21:29] Subha And it'll b easy to track places, events and language based initiatives
[21:29] naveenpf 11-Jan-2012 Wiki Academy @ SSN College of Engineering, Chennai .. we are having four wikiacademies upcoming in TN,KA,KL... we need to have wikiacademies in different parts of India....
[21:30] Subha yes, abt KA I need to add few things, let me know when will be the rite time
[21:30] arunram Bangalore has many language groups like the marathi group you are tapping
[21:31] arunram infact there is poentioal to run focus groups for at least 10 languages
[21:31] arunram the catch is we needmore volunteers for those languages like Odisha1
[21:31] Subha hmm yes
[21:31] arjunaraoc_ arunram: that's where language SIGs could help city SIGs
[21:31] arunram yes
[21:32] arunram suggest Radhakrishna to publish plans for Bangalore SIG along with other volunteers
[21:32] arunram any other city SIG folks on the IRC?
[21:32] Subha And language/city SIGs have to be in regular touch with active members of the community
[21:32] arunram anyone else wants to chime in on city SIGs
[21:32] naveenpf mikelynch
[21:33] arunram city SIG folks first please....
[21:33] Subha Odisha1
[21:33] arjunaraoc_ We only published Pune so far. they are busy with expo as of now.
[21:33] arunram what about Mumbai, Kolkata and Hyderabad SIGs
[21:33] arunram any one we can tap into
[21:33] arunram to take the lead.....
[21:33] RadhaKrishna_ I have a friend who can volunteer hyderabad SIG
[21:33] arunram who would that be?
[21:33] arjunaraoc_ we have kolkata also finalised, i think SIG chair may not be on call.
[21:34] RadhaKrishna_ talked to him over phone. he is quite interested
[21:34] arunram infatc srikanthlogic is there tooo
[21:34] RadhaKrishna_ Chaitanya
[21:34] arunram srikanthlogic do you want to take the lead for Hyd initiaitves?
[21:34] RadhaKrishna_ ok
[21:34] srikanthlogic arunram: me prefers to reduce offline engagements ..
[21:34] arunram ok
[21:35] arunram can you support chaitanya to get this started?
[21:35] srikanthlogic arunram: sure
[21:35] arunram or maybe srikanthlogic you could assist for the first few months to get the hyd activies bootstrapped
[21:35] arunram please
[21:35] arunram what abt Mumbai?
[21:36] arjunaraoc_ naveenpf: We need to send bunch of mails based on city of residence inviting members to help form SIG/join SIG
[21:36] srikanthlogic arunram: will try best. rahim (telugu sig) is also here, so shouldnt be a problem..
[21:36] Subha thats great, Arjuna als suggested another active user from hyd?
[21:36] naveenpf ok
[21:36] arunram we should look at Jan endhaving SIGs for 5-6 cities going with at least 5 volunteers each by
[21:37] arjunaraoc_ We just had our first of the weekly calls for telugu wikipedia. Rahimanuddin joined that. He is busy with book exhibition and may not be able to make it for today.
[21:37] naveenpf Chennai sig should be bootstrapped tooo ..
[21:37] RadhaKrishna_ Rahim agreed to organize a wikiAcademy in an engineering college in Hyderabad. Thanks to Rahimuddin
[21:37] Subha btw i had a suggestion, not sure how it fits in, apart from the city/language SIG chair, do we need subchairs?
[21:37] naveenpf wikiacademy requests are coming from chennai too
[21:37] arunram jan end would be a good goal to set for these SIGs to get going
[21:37] ShijuAlex I suggest while doing programs in Bangalore, give some focus to Kannada also. Kannada wiki community strength is going down. Since most of us are based in bangalore can we have some special plans for Kannada?
[21:37] srikanthlogic naveenpf: few months, sodabottle moving to chennai. about time it will be done.
[21:38] arunram what does eviery one thnk?
[21:38] naveenpf we need make wikiacademy more effective also
[21:38] Subha sometimes if one persons gets busy there would be bunch of others to help
[21:38] naveenpf a draft timeline has been put in @
[21:38] arunram sure shijualex, kannad needs focus
[21:38] MikeLynch-sgrao i strongly agree with shiju..
[21:39] arunram what does everyone think of a jan end goal to have 5-6 city sigs going with 5-6 volunteers each
[21:39] naveenpf omshivprakash has volunteered as Kannada sig chair...
[21:39] MikeLynch-sgrao should be gettable..
[21:39] arunram fols please chime in....
[21:39] arjunaraoc_ Subha: each SIG can decide on Dy Chairs and identify them as they grow.
[21:40] naveenpf we should help him to bootstrap kannada wikimedia activites
[21:40] Subha thats a good idea
[21:40] tinucherian back
[21:40] Subha welcome back Tinu
[21:40] srikanthlogic arunram: 5-6 sig with 5-6 might be tough imo. 5-6 with 2-3 is possible
[21:40] Subha And abt kannada Wiki academy i have a good news
[21:40] arjunaraoc_ Omshivprakash has participated in the Kannada wiki academy for Dept of Public libraries.
[21:40] Subha i have communicated with my engg college, they have agreed for a kannada academy
[21:41] arunram to amke sigs successful we need at least 5 active volunteers
[21:41] Subha and I'd like to ask any Kannada WP active user to lead it
[21:41] arunram otherwise things fall apart when a few get busy with other commitments
[21:41] arjunaraoc_ He has deep interest towards Kannada computing and wikipedia. I am hoping Kannada will become more active in future
[21:41] arunram can we agree on the city sig we will take up to bootstrap/
[21:41] ShijuAlex there are 2 more moderately active Kannada wikipedians in Bangalore. We shall connect them together and do some programs together
[21:42] arjunaraoc_ Subha: I will talk to Omshivaprakash and will update about your proposal.
[21:42] Subha that'd be good
[21:42] arunram may I propose chennai, mumbai, kolkata, delhi, hyderabad, kochi
[21:42] ShijuAlex while doing language wiki academey represetation from respective community will add more value and resuts
[21:43] arunram bangalore is already running as is mumbai
[21:43] Subha yes, conducting language academies in native languages is a must
[21:43] Noopur28 Delhi should have something too. I am in.
[21:43] arunram shijualex what is your view on Kochi
[21:43] arunram thanks Noopur28
[21:44] tinucherian 2 more moderately active Kannada wikipedians in Bangalore ?
[21:44] ShijuAlex Kochi should work. there are active members from kochi. Use them
[21:44] tinucherian can you name them
[21:44] tinucherian ?
[21:44] ShijuAlex Tejus and Hareesh

[21:44] MikeLynch-sgrao Harish is in Blore..
[21:44] tinucherian Tejas Jain and MG Harish?
[21:44] tinucherian ok
[21:45] arunram folks your comments on the city sig to get going - chennai, mumbai, kolkata, delhi, hyderabad, kochi - please comment
[21:45] Subha wow, then it'd be good. I am trying for a meeting, the insti head is very happy with the proposal for a Kannada academy
[21:45] arunram shujualex can you please comment on Kochi, is that the city we need to shoot for...
[21:45] srikanthlogic arunram: let a group in the sig gets formed first.. as such it 1-2 people everywhere. lets not attach a date now
[21:45] Noopur28 JNU is a good place to start in Delhi
[21:46] tinucherian +1 to Noopur28
[21:46] Noopur28 great bunches of concentrated students in diffnt disciplines
[21:46] Noopur28 plus IIT is nearby
[21:46] naveenpf +1
[21:46] Noopur28 however we should start with meetups first
[21:46] anirudh noopur28, and you're already connected to some of the students there through himanshu and others
[21:46] Noopur28 who all are there in Delhi anyway?
[21:46] arunram srikantlogic just feel have a high level set of goals we all agree has a way of focssing us all... just a thought
[21:46] ShijuAlex JNU is a good place. lot of interested people. last week I conducted a small workshop for Sanskrit there
[21:47] Noopur28 Cool!
[21:47] Noopur28 I passed Sumana some contacts for her meet as well
[21:47] anirudh noopur28, is sumana in new delhi?
[21:47] Subha that's great, and u get a lot of academicians when it's a place like DU/JNU
[21:47] arunram for delhi, one of the wikiconf participants offered his school as a venue with wifi
[21:48] Noopur28 ohgreat
[21:48] arunram incase other venues dont work out
[21:48] Noopur28 @anirudh i think she s doing things all over
[21:48] naveenpf Rohini is also there in delhi
[21:48] arunram noopur28 we can catch up offlist and i can connect you to this person
[21:48] Noopur28 i am noting these names down, will take details late
[21:48] Noopur28 yes
[21:48] Noopur28 thank you
[21:49] Subha @ShijuAlex, pls connectme to the Kannada Wikipedians
[21:49] arjunaraoc_ arunram: a mail to all members about the focus on SIGs will be helpful. Adding their names against the relevant page also will be helpful.
[21:49] -->| Teju2friends (7aac2323@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #wikimedia-in
[21:50] ShijuAlex I do not think space or infrastrucre is an issue in Delhi. The issue is interested participants. In JNU it worked because the target was specific language students who are working exclusively on that language (Sanskrit)
[21:50] arjunaraoc_ arunram: hope some script can help do that
[21:50] arunram the challenges for city sigs may be the following - gettting 5 core volunteers, a free venue, a plan and regular meetups going
[21:50] Noopur28 @shijualex that is true
[21:50] ShijuAlex See Tejus from Kannada wiki joined us
[21:50] Noopur28 there are more such language and region based communities in JNU
[21:50] arunram bangalore wikipedians can share experiences of what works and doesnt on getting meetuos going
[21:50] Noopur28 i can connect u to all of them
[21:50] naveenpf hi tejas
[21:50] arunram maybe we can create a wiki page for this.
[21:50] Noopur28 except i d need ur guidance

[22:08] Noopur28 yes i did finally
[22:08] Noopur28 Alsp
[22:08] arunram we need members to please start volunteer for some of the taskforces....
[22:08] arjunaraoc_ Noopur28: will be more an exception.
[22:08] arunram SIGS, GLAM are a few
[22:08] arunram maybe @naveenpf can share about the taskforces....
[22:08] Noopur28 to update you all, there is a WM Argentina conference coming up
[22:08] subha well, IMO SIG should lead for inviting community members for chapter membership
[22:09] -->| drno_ (75c70066@gateway/web/freenode/ip. has joined #wikimedia-in
[22:09] Noopur28 they are doing an exclusive Gender gap event plus something with women and wikipedia in general
[22:09] Noopur28 I request you all to update your respective women wikipedian friends
[22:09] arunram maybe @Noopur28 we can have a sig to focus on getting more lady wikipedian volunteers
[22:10] subha Thats an nice idea Noopur
[22:10] Noopur28 I was wondering if there should be a Gender gap initiative in the chapter as well
[22:10] subha +1 arunram
[22:10] srikanthlogic runs away
[22:10] arunram we have quite a few prolific lady wikipedians. we know 3-4 active wikipedina
[22:10] Gyan great
[22:10] Noopur28 I remember meeting Netha from Malayalam wp and i thought ppl like her should go
[22:10] <--| NKS has left #wikimedia-in
[22:10] Noopur28 @srikanthlogic now they have removed their no men policy

[22:11] subha And bishakha would be interested for more outreach and communications
[22:11] Noopur28 @subha i already told her
[22:11] subha thats good
[22:11] Noopur28 just telling u guys cos this is on some private list
[22:11] srikanthlogic Noopur28: better, but i prefer to keep quiet / run away when someone talks gendergap
[22:11] subha the idea of a separate SIG sounds good
[22:11] Noopur28 SIGs should have a woman member too
[22:11] Noopur28 that makes it more approachable
[22:12] |<-- Odisha1_ has left freenode (Ping timeout: 244 seconds)
[22:12] Noopur28 i dont favor pitying women or givine spl places but its less intimidating this way
[22:12] subha well, SIG nomincations include the active participation
[22:12] arunram ok
