1184185902 20:31:42<seanw> symode09_, I belive you have some issues regarding bad press for Wikinews?
1184185909 20:31:49<symode09_> wikipedia
1184185911 20:31:51<symode09_> ...
1184185925 20:32:05<symode09_> as you know recently, wikipedia has been criticised...
1184185938 20:32:18<symode09_> as being innacurate among other things...
1184185956 20:32:36<symode09_> I was thinking of (while working with wikiversity and wikinews video...)
1184185958 20:32:38<symode09_> ...
1184185973 20:32:53<symode09_> actually creating a vistual press kit with stick footage / comment one liners
1184185986 20:33:06<seanw> Ah yes, this is a pretty good idea imo.
1184185998 20:33:18<fuzheado> ah you mean like a VNR (video news release)
1184186008 20:33:28<fuzheado> jimmy's wanted something like that for a while now
1184186015 20:33:35<symode09_> kool
1184186017 20:33:37<symode09_> for those i haven't already told, a oneliner for the media is like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gY-d_J4ISAo

1184186579 20:42:59<Mike_H> mmhmm
1184186588 20:43:08<fuzheado> If you want a sample, of a video vignette I did at Wikimania 2005
1184186590 20:43:10<fuzheado> see: http://www.andrewlih.com/media/ruisilva.mp4
1184186597 20:43:17<symode09_> kk :)
1184186598 20:43:18<fuzheado> you need quicktime or something that can play MPEG-4
1184186607 20:43:27<fuzheado> forgive the squashed video, i shot in widescreen
1184186607 20:43:27<Wiki_Blue> ohh cool

1184186754 20:45:54<seanw> Wiki_Blue, no need to be quick with this one.
1184186756 20:45:56<fuzheado> seanw: the hope is that we can involve more folks online with Wikimania this year
1184186761 20:46:01<Wiki_Blue> we need people to sign up for Wikimania coverage, collect info, and then compile a virtual newsletter to be sent to reporters
1184186763 20:46:03<seanw> fuzheado, how woyuld that work?
1184186777 20:46:17<fuzheado> online chat, skypecast or audiocast, videoconferencing
1184186789 20:46:29<Wiki_Blue> after Wikimania as in "look how successful it was, and this what was talked about, and look at all the happy conference attenders)
1184186806 20:46:46<Wiki_Blue> we need Wikinews people
1184186820 20:47:00<Wiki_Blue> to particpate in this
1184186833 20:47:13 * symode09_ can get a notice put up at the top of wikinews.org
1184186834 20:47:14<Wiki_Blue> Also 2) The press kit needs to be finished ASAP
1184186841 20:47:21<symode09_> k
1184186842 20:47:22<Wiki_Blue> can you take care of that symode?
1184186846 20:47:26<symode09_> kk
1184186851 20:47:31<fuzheado> seanw: in the past, it's been kind of a loose irc chat... would be nice to have post-panel or midday "call in" type discussions with folks from around the world
1184186851 20:47:31<Wiki_Blue> please sign the project page lol
1184186877 20:47:57<CraigSpurrier> symode09_: I doubt the Wikinews comunity will agree to that
1184186882 20:48:02<Wiki_Blue> 2) so for the press kit, anyone that is involved in Wikimania planning, please review, and add any relevant info
1184186883 20:48:03<symode09_> kk
1184186890 20:48:10<seanw> fuzheado, if you remember, a quick note when that is setup would be much appreciated.
1184186894 20:48:14<Mike_H> If anyone wants to pay for me to go to Wikimania, I'll do anything.
1184186895 20:48:15<Mike_H> thx.

1184186957 20:49:17 * cary_in_meeting reminds people that in order to receive a scholarship to wikimania they have to have applied for it
1184186959 20:49:19<Wiki_Blue> thanks thats it
1184186964 20:49:24<cary_in_meeting> past tense
1184186981 20:49:41<symode09_> :'(
1184186988 20:49:48<seanw> Groovy.
1184186995 20:49:55 * symode09_ dances to disco
1184186995 20:49:55<seanw> On we go.
1184187004 20:50:04<seanw> cbrown next
1184187005 20:50:05<seanw> Arg
1184187008 20:50:08<seanw> Where is he? :\
1184187015 20:50:15<Mike_H> Charlie Brown?
1184187023 20:50:23<seanw> Cbrown1023, woooooooooooooooooooooo
1184187025 20:50:25 * symode09_ pokes cbrown1023 repeatedly in the eye
1184187038 20:50:38 * symode09_ has an idea... I developed earlier in the year where all you need is the webcam and the software (i can send) a internet connection and a pc - it will film when there is movement and, upload the video via ftp
1184187044 20:50:44<seanw> Well, I can tell you what his topic was if you want to brainstorm.
1184187052 20:50:52<seanw> It was Cary's getting the word out to seniors.
1184187055 20:50:55<seanw> How can we do it? :)
1184187063 20:51:03<fuzheado> symode09_: interesting
1184187063 20:51:03<symode09_> wha?
1184187078 20:51:18<seanw> Um
1184187079 20:51:19<symode09_> it works - all we need is the hardware :p
1184187080 20:51:20<seanw> Let's keep on topic :)
1184187083 20:51:23<Wiki_Blue> Creating page on ComProj
1184187085 20:51:25<symode09_> kkkk
1184187088 20:51:28<seanw> Wiki_Blue, thanks.
1184187134 20:52:14<fuzheado> symode09_: where does it upload to exactly?
1184187143 20:52:23<symode09_> a ftp server
1184187148 20:52:28<fuzheado> Wikimedia still kinda does not have its video act together
1184187150 20:52:30<symode09_> i can supply that if needed
1184187164 20:52:44<fuzheado> it has outlawed any format normal people use
1184187166 20:52:46 * symode09_ is even more annoyed that he can't go L;(
1184187173 20:52:53<seanw> um
1184187175 20:52:55<cary_in_meeting> Cary needs help getting the word out to seniors
1184187176 20:52:56<fuzheado> and Ogg Theora is still a basketcase
1184187182 20:53:02<seanw> *Please* can we come back this after we've done seniors?
1184187184 20:53:04<cary_in_meeting> And I don't mean seniors like me and fuzheado
1184187186 20:53:06<fuzheado> cary_in_meeting: can you explain that again?!? :)
1184187200 20:53:20<symode09_> in all honesty, i think the media and how it is "unfree" is a load of shi*
1184187200 20:53:20<Wiki_Blue> http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Senior_Outreach
1184187201 20:53:21 * Mike_H gives fuzheado some Geritol
1184187202 20:53:22<cary_in_meeting> I mean really old.  Like over 50 :)
1184187203 20:53:23 * fuzheado goes to find the Geritol
1184187207 20:53:27<Mike_H> cary_in_meeting has some
1184187208 20:53:28<fuzheado> Mike_H: jinx
1184187219 20:53:39<seanw> Wiki_Blue, are you categoising these under ComProj (do you know how to?)
1184187221 20:53:41<cary_in_meeting> Let me explain it again
1184187239 20:53:59<cary_in_meeting> Seniors are, by far, the largest growing group on the internet in developed countries
1184187244 20:54:04<fuzheado> seanw: sorry ... ok seniors :)
1184187255 20:54:15<cary_in_meeting> They also have a lot of time on their hands
1184187260 20:54:20<symode09_> and it keeps their mind active!
1184187263 20:54:23<cary_in_meeting> and lifetimes of knowledge.
1184187264 20:54:24<Mike_H> Some of them don't. I know. I watch The Golden Girls.
1184187267 20:54:27<fuzheado> so get to seniors ... for reading or to glean their knowledge as editors?
1184187277 20:54:37<cary_in_meeting> Editors, but not necessarily on wikipedia
1184187288 20:54:48<cary_in_meeting> Unless it's for maintenance
1184187297 20:54:57<schiste> got to go, see ya later :)
1184187298 20:54:58<cary_in_meeting> Wikibooks and Wikiversity are great places that Seniors can help out
1184187301 20:55:01<seanw> By schiste 
1184187302 20:55:02<fuzheado> cary_in_meeting: I think this merits long term discussion yes... but I fear Wikisyntax is as bad as its ever been in terms of confusing-ness
1184187304 20:55:04<cary_in_meeting> by schiste
1184187309 20:55:09<cary_in_meeting> fuzheado: I know
1184187311 20:55:11 * symode09_ huggles schiste
1184187313 20:55:13<cary_in_meeting> So we need to have some basics
1184187327 20:55:27<cary_in_meeting> and other users who will be eager in working with seniors
1184187329 20:55:29<cary_in_meeting> holding hands
1184187337 20:55:37<cary_in_meeting> And formatting their pages
1184187354 20:55:54<seanw> Okay
1184187358 20:55:58-!- BrianNZ_aw [n=bcandert@wikinews/Brian-New-Zealand] has joined #wikimedia-cpg
1184187362 20:56:02<seanw> So, we set up a Wikiprojecyt or something to help them?

1184187383 20:56:23<cary_in_meeting> This is a great deal of information
1184187393 20:56:33<cary_in_meeting> and completely compiled by a senior citizen

1184187475 20:57:55<symode09_> seanw: can i add something at the end if we have time?
1184187476 20:57:56<seanw> heh
1184187481 20:58:01<seanw> symode09_, sure, msg me it
1184187482 20:58:02<fuzheado> HOLY COW THAT IS QUITE A CONTRIBUTION
1184187487 20:58:07<cary_in_meeting> Indeed.

1184187495 20:58:15<cary_in_meeting> It was originally transwikied from Wikipedia

1184187545 20:59:05<cary_in_meeting> But this underscores some of the issues we're dealing with when seniors edit

1184187592 20:59:52<symode09_> :0
1184187592 20:59:52<seanw> So, do we have some strategies here?
1184187614 21:00:14<symode09_> erm, create kits that can be sent to seniors....
1184187617 21:00:17<Wiki_Blue> a) first lets compile a list of senior associations and publications
1184187623 21:00:23<Wiki_Blue> without that, we can't do anything
1184187627 21:00:27<Mike_H> AARP magazine
1184187629 21:00:29<cary_in_meeting> Modern Maturity
1184187633 21:00:33<Wiki_Blue> whatever they are
1184187633 21:00:33<Mike_H> we should contact them and ask if they want to write a story.
1184187639 21:00:39<fuzheado> Fix wikisyntax... doh
1184187640 21:00:40<Wiki_Blue> so first step is research
1184187641 21:00:41<cary_in_meeting> Golden Juggs
1184187642 21:00:42<symode09_> create a plugin which increases the font size of all wmf pages? :p
1184187655 21:00:55-!- schiste [n=schiste@ip-179.net-81-220-91.toulouse.rev.numericable.fr] has quit ["see ya space cowboys :)"]
1184187663 21:01:03 * fuzheado is still savouring Golden Juggs
1184187665 21:01:05<Wiki_Blue> b) and then see if some comprojj members want to recruit people from teh community who might want to work with seniors
1184187666 21:01:06<Platonides> create a senior edition of the browser for edit wikis
1184187667 21:01:07<cary_in_meeting> symode09_: We actually have a skin
1184187673 21:01:13<symode09_> O_o
1184187686 21:01:26<Wiki_Blue> posting this stuff, like the browser idea
1184187702 21:01:42<symode09_> i think if we can have a set of printable easy to learn stuff that they can use
1184187703 21:01:43<cary_in_meeting> http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Main_Page?useskin=Chick
1184187707 21:01:47<cary_in_meeting> maybe not Chick
1184187717 21:01:57<seanw> Wiki_Blue, thanks for all your work with these pages today
1184187725 21:02:05<seanw> Right, let's move on to an issue symode just brought up.
1184187727 21:02:07<seanw> Okay?
1184187730 21:02:10<fuzheado> something with a abigger font would help no doubt
1184187732 21:02:12<symode09_> koolness
1184187745 21:02:25<seanw> symode09_, off you go.
1184187750 21:02:30<symode09_> k...
1184187758 21:02:38<symode09_> >	I would actually like to bring up alternative means of accessing the WMF (ie. from non iphone mobiles)
1184187770 21:02:50<symode09_> and having portals that collaborate infromation from various wmf projects
1184187812 21:03:32 * symode09_ clicks pen, then continues
1184187840 21:04:00<symode09_> portals are rarely used by the public and school children - i think it is extremely valuable
1184187853 21:04:13<symode09_> but my main point is alternative media :p

1184187959 21:05:59<symode09_> :0 really?
1184187962 21:06:02<Wiki_Blue> people can access wikipedia from their phones
1184187975 21:06:15<Wiki_Blue> Nokia Chile set that up with the foundation
1184187980 21:06:20<Wiki_Blue> (i think its nokia chile)
1184187987 21:06:27<symode09_> not many - most phones still have simple browsing functionality

1184188004 21:06:44<Wiki_Blue> is that what you mean?
1184188013 21:06:53<symode09_> kinda...
1184188036 21:07:16<symode09_> i think we need a central page where anyone in the world can go and get the latest news and word definitions
1184188056 21:07:36<fuzheado> so a WAP-friendly or mobile browser friendly portal
1184188061 21:07:41<fuzheado> with the most used and useful parts of WP
1184188062 21:07:42<fuzheado> WM
1184188064 21:07:44<fuzheado> exposed
1184188064 21:07:44<symode09_> exacttly
1184188069 21:07:49<fuzheado> nice idea
1184188071 21:07:51<symode09_> yes
1184188081 21:08:01<symode09_> nice wordin :p
1184188082 21:08:02<fuzheado> a fill in box for searching any or every part of WM content
1184188091 21:08:11<symode09_> yer
1184188096 21:08:16<Wiki_Blue> Vishal is actually working on something like this
1184188109 21:08:29<Wiki_Blue> I can send you guys the link tomororw, if thats okay
1184188110 21:08:30<fuzheado> an extension of this, might be a real Dashboard widget (if you're a Mac user) that has more than just "search Wikipedia"
1184188115 21:08:35<symode09_> really? koolness
1184188119 21:08:39<seanw> Wiki_Blue, cool :)
1184188123 21:08:43 * symode09_ has that on vista!
1184188125 21:08:45<Wiki_Blue> I think a dashboard widget would be very good
1184188130 21:08:50<Wiki_Blue> and less problematic
1184188141 21:09:01<symode09_> it is sooooo kool you type in what you want and, it will search wikipedia, wikinews, commmons etc.
1184188181 21:09:41<Wiki_Blue> These ideas are awesome, but let me just say one thing...they require participation from other departments at wikimedia foundation
1184188190 21:09:50<symode09_> np
1184188192 21:09:52<seanw> Yeha, I was thinking ghat.
1184188194 21:09:54<Wiki_Blue> not just communications, and harder to execute, etc
1184188196 21:09:56<seanw> This is a bit beyond comproj.
1184188216 21:10:16<Wiki_Blue> but I'll get you in touch with vishal, okay
1184188222 21:10:22<Wiki_Blue> send me your email symode
1184188232 21:10:32<seanw> Right.
1184188233 21:10:33<symode09_> symode09@hotmail.com
1184188237 21:10:37<seanw> So, that's all the agenda items.
1184188245 21:10:45<seanw> Do we have any other things people want to bring up?
1184188249 21:10:49<Wiki_Blue> i have one
1184188265 21:11:05<Wiki_Blue> can i go
1184188270 21:11:10<symode09_> never!

1184188281 21:11:21<symode09_> heh
1184188286 21:11:26<Wiki_Blue> this is still under the blankets, okay? so no announcing anything yet
1184188290 21:11:30<Wiki_Blue> just wanted to get comproj's reaction
1184188291 21:11:31<symode09_> kk

1184188315 21:11:55<Wiki_Blue> so do you guys think there was an interest in
1184188317 21:11:57<seanw> But rememebr this is opublic
1184188324 21:12:04<Wiki_Blue> for people to sign up to a fundraising list serv
1184188326 21:12:06<Cbrown1023> make sure you post logs, please :)

1184188340 21:12:20<seanw> Cbrown1023, will do.
1184188351 21:12:31<Wiki_Blue> but generally in the community, to work on fundraising proposals, grants etc
1184188359 21:12:39<Wiki_Blue> and if we go ahead with this
1184188367 21:12:47<Wiki_Blue> would comproj be able to help recruit people?
1184188375 21:12:55<Wiki_Blue> this is still just an IDEA
1184188378 21:12:58<seanw> Hmm
1184188384 21:13:04<seanw> I don't see why not - people have the ideas.
1184188386 21:13:06<fuzheado> Wiki_Blue: you should talk to some folks about the history of fundraising community volunteers
1184188386 21:13:06 * symode09_ has lost focus - what do you mean>
1184188392 21:13:12<fuzheado> from what i understand, it has not been pretty
1184188401 21:13:21<cary_in_meeting> we need fundraisers
1184188404 21:13:24<symode09_> kk
1184188404 21:13:24<Wiki_Blue> but comproj is working so well, that it would be cool to have a similar group from fundraising

1184188426 21:13:46<Wiki_Blue> okay Fuzheado - I'll email you, see if you can give me names
