[2008-05-28 13:32:02] -->| ZvD (n=chatzill@*) has joined #wikimedia-cpg
[2008-05-28 13:32:32] <kibble> heya ZvD, we were just about to start
[2008-05-28 13:32:35] <brianmc> Synopsis: Walter feels unloved
[2008-05-28 13:32:49] <cary-busy> Yes
[2008-05-28 13:32:53] <ZvD> hi, i just went home from a dutch-german meeting
[2008-05-28 13:33:29] <ZvD> ZvD = Ziko
[2008-05-28 13:33:51] <kibble> brianmc, well, it's a valued production
[2008-05-28 13:33:53] <kibble> but he has no help
[2008-05-28 13:35:02] <NonvocalScream> No clue what wikizine is
[2008-05-28 13:35:05] <NonvocalScream> What is wikizine?
[2008-05-28 13:35:26] <Az1568> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikizine
[2008-05-28 13:35:32] <NonvocalScream> tq
[2008-05-28 13:35:44] <Az1568> np
[2008-05-28 13:35:52] <cary-busy> Okay
[2008-05-28 13:35:54] <cary-busy> what we need
[2008-05-28 13:36:02] <cary-busy> Is some ideas on getting the word out that Walter needs submissions
[2008-05-28 13:36:12] <cary-busy> writing something up for the Village PUmps
[2008-05-28 13:36:44] <NonvocalScream> mailing lists, project specific and perhaps foundation-l
[2008-05-28 13:36:49] <kibble> NonvocalScream, it's like the Signpost, but it's not as kept up anymore (and it's Wikimedia-wide, not WP specific)
[2008-05-28 13:37:01] <NonvocalScream> ok
[2008-05-28 13:37:02] <cary-busy> Yeah... well, foundation-l
[2008-05-28 13:37:12] <brianmc> troll-l you mean
[2008-05-28 13:37:21] <cary-busy> I'm not sure if anyone there cares
[2008-05-28 13:37:28] <NonvocalScream> The Wikizine...
[2008-05-28 13:37:31] <cary-busy> Besides, I'm looking for fresh faces
[2008-05-28 13:37:49] <NonvocalScream> It overlaps the blog in some respects.
[2008-05-28 13:38:10] <cary-busy> Yes and no
[2008-05-28 13:38:19] <cary-busy> Wikizine is primarily distributed to Wikimedians
[2008-05-28 13:38:35] <ZvD> i'd like to have a wikimedia newspaper as a pdf, in a way that i could quote it (better than mailings or sites)
[2008-05-28 13:38:50] <kibble> speaking of the blog, we need to work more on that and I hav esome ideas... but I guess that's a different discussion :P
[2008-05-28 13:38:59] <cary-busy> oh, Jay
[2008-05-28 13:39:21] <NonvocalScream> I don't see him in attendance.
[2008-05-28 13:39:27] * kibble is im'ing him
[2008-05-28 13:39:37] * NonvocalScream loads skype to skype him.
[2008-05-28 13:39:42] <kibble> he's not online
[2008-05-28 13:39:49] <kibble> (skype)

[2008-05-28 13:39:52] <cary-busy> yes
[2008-05-28 13:39:56] |<-- Az1568_ has left freenode (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
[2008-05-28 13:39:57] <kibble> he says he'll drop in, but he's multi... here he is
[2008-05-28 13:40:03] <jayansonvv> hi all
[2008-05-28 13:40:40] <NonvocalScream> Perhaps it would help to centralize the Wikizine onto Meta, and set up a newsroom environ kinbdof like signpost does
[2008-05-28 13:40:41] <cary-busy> so, a message, and distribution of the message
[2008-05-28 13:40:48] <NonvocalScream> That may help with a fresh influx of ideas.
[2008-05-28 13:41:10] -->| effeietsanders (n=chatzill@wikimedia/effeietsanders) has joined #wikimedia-cpg
[2008-05-28 13:42:01] <NonvocalScream> cary-busy The message you would like... the intent is to gather participation into the Wikizine project?
[2008-05-28 13:42:02] <cary-busy> effeietsanders: where does Walter centralize the efforts
[2008-05-28 13:42:04] <brianmc> If I get the Salmond interview through I can give Walter a technical piece on it.
[2008-05-28 13:42:10] <effeietsanders> on meta
[2008-05-28 13:42:15] <effeietsanders> [[m:wikizine]]
[2008-05-28 13:42:16] <unilinky> http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/m:wikizine
[2008-05-28 13:42:32] <NonvocalScream> http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikizine
[2008-05-28 13:43:09] <NonvocalScream> I like that setup on meta.
[2008-05-28 13:43:16] <ZvD> my problem with wikizine was that the messages, even when translated, were uncomprehensible to many readers, because the content was written for people who know wikimedia well
[2008-05-28 13:43:36] <effeietsanders> ZvD: that is all going with the people who write it :)
[2008-05-28 13:43:44] <effeietsanders> walter is a very long time user :)
[2008-05-28 13:43:52] <effeietsanders> and he doesnt really like it any more
[2008-05-28 13:44:00] <effeietsanders> so goes to write as comprehensive as possible
[2008-05-28 13:44:23] <effeietsanders> if others help out, i'm sure he has no objection to another writing style :)
[2008-05-28 13:45:01] <ZvD> it's not exactly the writing style, but the question who is it for
[2008-05-28 13:46:05] <cary-busy> Longtime wikimedians
[2008-05-28 13:46:09] <cary-busy> so we need a feedback page
[2008-05-28 13:46:14] <kibble> maybe we just need to publicize what he wants and where they should send it
[2008-05-28 13:46:28] <kibble> right now, there's an e-mail and his talk page, I think
[2008-05-28 13:46:55] <jayansonvv> is wikizine listed on planet wikimedia?
[2008-05-28 13:47:04] <cary-busy> Yes, but we need willing participants to help gather
[2008-05-28 13:48:28] <effeietsanders> you need to get it weekly again i think
[2008-05-28 13:48:31] <effeietsanders> to keep momentum
[2008-05-28 13:48:40] <effeietsanders> otherwise people won't stick
[2008-05-28 13:49:12] <cary-busy> so we need to create a message.  Place the message.  enjoy the results.
[2008-05-28 13:50:43] <NonvocalScream> feedback area was added in this edit: http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikizine&diff=1015572&oldid=1013558
[2008-05-28 13:51:10] =-= CraigSpurrier is now known as CraigSpurrier_aw
[2008-05-28 13:51:15] <cary-busy> okay
[2008-05-28 13:51:32] <NonvocalScream> So a "Wikizine needs your help!" style message to place on the local projects community (VP) areas?
[2008-05-28 13:51:56] <cary-busy> Yes
[2008-05-28 13:52:13] <cary-busy> effeietsanders can probably draft it best
[2008-05-28 13:52:23] <effeietsanders> ehm... :S
[2008-05-28 13:52:29] <cary-busy> because he knows exactly what Walter needs
[2008-05-28 13:52:36] <effeietsanders> i dont know exactly
[2008-05-28 13:52:43] <cary-busy> don't be humble
[2008-05-28 13:52:48] <cary-busy> of course you do
[2008-05-28 13:53:23] <NonvocalScream> http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikizine&diff=1015577&oldid=1015572
[2008-05-28 13:53:27] <NonvocalScream> I added a workspace
[2008-05-28 13:53:35] <NonvocalScream> translation services might be needed
[2008-05-28 13:53:56] <effeietsanders> cary-busy: i can be helping, but i cant pull the writing by myself
[2008-05-28 13:53:57] <cary-busy> NonvocalScream: Generally, we can list messages and they'll get translated :)
[2008-05-28 13:54:03] <cary-busy> effeietsanders: no, of course not
[2008-05-28 13:54:11] <effeietsanders> just dont have time even for that
[2008-05-28 13:54:16] <effeietsanders> sorry :(
[2008-05-28 13:56:25] <NonvocalScream> whats the interwiki for en wiki?
[2008-05-28 13:56:40] <cary-busy> w:
[2008-05-28 13:56:41] <ZvD> well if wikizine is intended for a small group of users already knowing everything well, there is no need for translations, because those who understand the subjects will read the english version
[2008-05-28 13:56:54] <cary-busy> ZvD: this is for contributors
[2008-05-28 13:56:58] <cary-busy> from all projectrs
[2008-05-28 13:57:00] <cary-busy> but yeah
[2008-05-28 13:57:08] <NonvocalScream> http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikizine/draft
[2008-05-28 13:57:33] <ZvD> i tried to translate those wikizine news, it it did'nt seem to make much sense to me
[2008-05-28 13:59:31] <ZvD> (i hope i did'nt kill the conversation) :-)
[2008-05-28 14:00:54] <effeietsanders> well, maybe you should read some older versions
[2008-05-28 14:01:01] <effeietsanders> they represent better the idea
[2008-05-28 14:01:12] <effeietsanders> from roughly 9 months ago or so
[2008-05-28 14:01:33] <NonvocalScream> cary-busy is that draft an illustration of what you might be looking for?
[2008-05-28 14:01:45] <cary-busy> oh, wait
[2008-05-28 14:01:57] <cary-busy> yes
[2008-05-28 14:02:04] * NonvocalScream holds his edits
[2008-05-28 14:02:08] <NonvocalScream> ok
[2008-05-28 14:02:10] <cary-busy> Yes, it is
[2008-05-28 14:02:29] <effeietsanders> cary-busy: can't we pull in someone from wikinews to pull the car too?
[2008-05-28 14:02:50] <brianmc> I'm here, but SWMBO is talking and I must listen
[2008-05-28 14:03:19] <cary-busy> SWMBO = Single White Male w/ Body Odor?
[2008-05-28 14:03:32] <NonvocalScream> What was that slang term for news reporter
[2008-05-28 14:03:34] <brianmc> She Who Must Be Obeyed
[2008-05-28 14:03:38] <NonvocalScream> I want to use it on the draft
[2008-05-28 14:03:42] <NonvocalScream> gumshoe?
[2008-05-28 14:03:43] <NonvocalScream> no
[2008-05-28 14:03:45] <NonvocalScream> help?
[2008-05-28 14:03:51] <cary-busy> contributor
[2008-05-28 14:03:57] <NonvocalScream> no thats not it
[2008-05-28 14:04:01] <NonvocalScream> Its on the tip of my toung
[2008-05-28 14:04:04] <NonvocalScream> e
[2008-05-28 14:05:06] <cary-busy> sources
[2008-05-28 14:05:57] <ZvD> well, after the subject wikizine i would like to table another issue, about pr for little wikipedias
[2008-05-28 14:06:23] <cary-busy> ZvD: I like that too
[2008-05-28 14:06:48] <ZvD> thanks
[2008-05-28 14:06:55] <ZvD> i made a little research about small wikipedias
[2008-05-28 14:06:58] * kibble 3
[2008-05-28 14:07:07] * cary-busy wonders who ZvD is
[2008-05-28 14:07:11] <ZvD> some have excellent contact with language institutions
[2008-05-28 14:07:19] <ZvD> (ZvD =Ziko-W)
[2008-05-28 14:07:21] <ZvD> some don't
[2008-05-28 14:07:24] <cary-busy> ah
[2008-05-28 14:07:41] <cary-busy> ZvD: ht.wikipedia was one of my pets... and we have a single active user on it
[2008-05-28 14:07:48] <cary-busy> but would like to get more
[2008-05-28 14:08:00] <ZvD> i must look up now what's ht :-)
[2008-05-28 14:08:01] <NonvocalScream> http://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikizine%2Fdraft&diff=1015615&oldid=1015586
[2008-05-28 14:08:07] <kibble> (make sure you post research ventures to [[mail:wiki-research-l]])
[2008-05-28 14:08:08] <unilinky> http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/mail:wiki-research-l
[2008-05-28 14:08:23] <effeietsanders> aaah, ziko :)
[2008-05-28 14:08:46] <NonvocalScream> Incidentally, SUL autologin will make it easy to repost on the projects.
[2008-05-28 14:08:50] <ZvD> kibble, i cannot post to wiki-research-l, my mails are rejected, and noone answered at owner-list - i am not the only one with the problem
[2008-05-28 14:08:51] <cary-busy> ht = Haitian Kreyol
[2008-05-28 14:08:59] <cary-busy> oh?
[2008-05-28 14:09:00] <ZvD> cary-busy: interesting
[2008-05-28 14:09:02] <kibble> ZvD, did you subscribe?
[2008-05-28 14:09:05] <cary-busy> I can access lists
[2008-05-28 14:09:07] <NonvocalScream> Would anyone like to add to the draft?
[2008-05-28 14:09:12] <ZvD> kibble, I did, and complained twice
[2008-05-28 14:09:25] <kibble> NonvocalScream, [[Communications subcommittees/Internal/Distribution list]]
[2008-05-28 14:09:26] <unilinky> http://tinyurl.com/3n2bmr
[2008-05-28 14:09:30] <ZvD> once the same problem with comproj
[2008-05-28 14:09:47] <ZvD> Haitian Kreyol is close to France, I suppose?
[2008-05-28 14:09:51] <ZvD> sorry, French
[2008-05-28 14:10:15] <NonvocalScream> kibble i like
[2008-05-28 14:10:34] <cary-busy> sort of, and yet not
[2008-05-28 14:11:06] <ZvD> cary-busy: but people who are active in the net are mostly capable to communicate in french, I suppose? diglossia?
[2008-05-28 14:11:21] <cary-busy> yes
[2008-05-28 14:11:42] <ZvD> this makes it very difficult, especially in a country that is not rich
[2008-05-28 14:12:05] <ZvD> how about the language planning? are there modern dictionaries, a unified spelling?
[2008-05-28 14:12:11] <cary-busy> Knowledge of French tends to come with literacy
[2008-05-28 14:12:53] <ZvD> the problems should be similar to those of Arabic: who uses the net prefers English
[2008-05-28 14:13:16] <kibble> yep
[2008-05-28 14:13:17] <cary-busy> Well, Arabic is changing, now that they've developed roman text shorthand
[2008-05-28 14:13:23] <ZvD> i see
[2008-05-28 14:13:36] <ZvD> they say that arabic lacks a good search engine
[2008-05-28 14:13:48] <ZvD> but what about language institutions?
[2008-05-28 14:14:07] <cary-busy> Well, there's the Koran
[2008-05-28 14:14:17] <ZvD> no I mean Haitian
[2008-05-28 14:14:24] <cary-busy> oh, no...
[2008-05-28 14:14:26] <cary-busy> not really
[2008-05-28 14:14:29] <ZvD> de.WP tells me about Institut Pédagogique National that is busy with language planning
[2008-05-28 14:14:38] <cary-busy> just interest at university level
[2008-05-28 14:14:49] <cary-busy> I don't know anymore
[2008-05-28 14:14:59] <ZvD> Two Wikipedias of small or weak languages that work very good are Esperanto and Latin
[2008-05-28 14:15:03] <cary-busy> NonvocalScream: Maybe let Walter have a look at it too
[2008-05-28 14:15:14] <cary-busy> Esperanto is not so small :)
[2008-05-28 14:15:18] <cary-busy> I call that Medium sized
[2008-05-28 14:15:20] <cary-busy> latin too
[2008-05-28 14:15:28] <ZvD> The Eo and La Wikipedians have excellent contacts to language instituions and associations
[2008-05-28 14:15:43] <NonvocalScream> Sounds good to me. :)
[2008-05-28 14:15:44] <ZvD> Eo may have for about a quarter million speakers
[2008-05-28 14:15:56] <ZvD> like icelandic or luxemburgese
[2008-05-28 14:16:02] <ZvD> but Eo.WP is much bigger
[2008-05-28 14:16:31] <ZvD> on the other hand, dialect Wikipedians (Bavarian, Low German, Limburgih etc.) DON'T have such contacts
[2008-05-28 14:16:35] <NonvocalScream> I would like if we could also post a short message on the village pumps about our suggestion area for the blog.  It seems we've been getting kindof stagnenet.
[2008-05-28 14:16:45] <NonvocalScream> What are the thoughts around the table?
[2008-05-28 14:17:05] <NonvocalScream> suggestion area is located on meta at [[m:blog]]
[2008-05-28 14:17:05] <unilinky> http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/m:blog
[2008-05-28 14:17:11] <NonvocalScream> unilinky is broken
[2008-05-28 14:17:13] <cary-busy> certainly
[2008-05-28 14:17:23] <brianmc> invite Wikilinker. :D
[2008-05-28 14:17:49] <NonvocalScream> http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/blog
[2008-05-28 14:18:17] <NonvocalScream> cary-busy and others
[2008-05-28 14:18:39] <NonvocalScream> what are the thoughts about posting a piece on SUL/Unified Login and AutoLogin across the projects as internal-tech?
[2008-05-28 14:18:51] <NonvocalScream> FOr tomorrow perhaps?
[2008-05-28 14:18:53] * Az1568 nods, the blog has been sorta stale
[2008-05-28 14:19:02] <Az1568> seems like a good idea
[2008-05-28 14:19:06] * kibble notes Az1568 is kinda lagged out
[2008-05-28 14:19:25] <kibble> or he's misreading the name of the channel ;-)
[2008-05-28 14:19:30] <NonvocalScream> jayansonvv
[2008-05-28 14:19:34] <cary-busy> yes, the blog (nudge jayansonvv) can use help
[2008-05-28 14:19:36] <jayansonvv> yes i'm here
[2008-05-28 14:19:42] <jayansonvv> i just made a post
[2008-05-28 14:19:46] <NonvocalScream> what are the thoughts about posting a piece on SUL/Unified Login and AutoLogin across the projects as internal-tech?
[2008-05-28 14:19:50] <jayansonvv> as a matter of fact
[2008-05-28 14:20:16] <Az1568> kibble: well its a good thing to bring up, since we're all here  :)
[2008-05-28 14:20:34] <kibble> Az1568, nvm ;-) it was me who was misreading his comment :P
[2008-05-28 14:20:39] <Az1568> hehe :P
[2008-05-28 14:22:15] <Az1568> jayansonvv: Nice :)
[2008-05-28 14:22:31] <jayansonvv> i expect the google lawyers to come down on us for using their copyright blue oceans, but what the heck
[2008-05-28 14:22:32] <cary-busy> yay
[2008-05-28 14:22:34] <jayansonvv> fair use!
[2008-05-28 14:22:35] <kibble> heh
[2008-05-28 14:22:42] <Az1568> kibble: now update Blogbox/2008 :)
[2008-05-28 14:22:47] <kibble> I saw that image on wmf:rc and thought it was cool :P

[2008-05-28 14:22:54] <Az1568> lol
[2008-05-28 14:22:54] <kibble> Az1568, make NonvocalScream do it, I'm busy and he likes to :P
[2008-05-28 14:22:58] <kibble> or make david create your account
[2008-05-28 14:23:02] <Az1568> :P
[2008-05-28 14:23:46] <jayansonvv> i'm working on a few more posts
[2008-05-28 14:24:08] <jayansonvv> but i'm still struggling to figure out a method of assigning regular time to the process
[2008-05-28 14:24:23] <brianmc> If this damn woman from the Scottish parliament gets back to me I'll have one for you. ;)
[2008-05-28 14:24:39] <NonvocalScream> jayansonvv perhaps we can delegate the posting to a small group of contributers, what are your thoughts?
[2008-05-28 14:24:40] <cary-busy> jayansonvv: allowing our contributors to help write our posts :)
[2008-05-28 14:24:50] * Az1568 nods...
[2008-05-28 14:24:56] <jayansonvv> yup, both options
[2008-05-28 14:25:04] <kibble> NonvocalScream, why don't we just say "send us your material!"
[2008-05-28 14:25:13] <kibble> we don't need to delegate, just let them know that they /can/ do it
[2008-05-28 14:25:21] <NonvocalScream> I like that also
[2008-05-28 14:25:27] <brianmc> I think I'd prefer a process where more people can edit, but there are gatekeepers on publication
[2008-05-28 14:25:34] <Az1568> yeah we could have a post that says that
[2008-05-28 14:25:46] <kibble> yep
[2008-05-28 14:25:50] <cary-busy> mwa ha ha
[2008-05-28 14:25:54] <jayansonvv> I'm still sussing that out
[2008-05-28 14:26:05] <NonvocalScream> sussing?
[2008-05-28 14:26:25] <cary-busy> It's a Nova Scotian slang thing
[2008-05-28 14:26:27] <jayansonvv> Part of the external perspective on the blog is that people see it as a place for... authoratative info
[2008-05-28 14:26:30] <jayansonvv> Ha ha, it is not
[2008-05-28 14:26:33] <jayansonvv> Figuring it out
[2008-05-28 14:26:41] <jayansonvv> authoratative isn't the right word
[2008-05-28 14:26:47] <jayansonvv> and isn't even spelled correctly there
[2008-05-28 14:27:02] <NonvocalScream> Moderators / the small group of folks, can act as quality control... or gatekeepers as kibble put it.
[2008-05-28 14:27:07] <jayansonvv> but I'm now trying to think about a way of adding a 'volunteer contributor' system.
[2008-05-28 14:27:11] <kibble> NonvocalScream, brianmc*
[2008-05-28 14:27:34] <jayansonvv> But the very best way would be for me or someoen else to flag the best post of the day from planet wikimedia, and/or a major media hit of the day
[2008-05-28 14:27:45] <NonvocalScream> Perhaps we can reconfigure the meta suggestion area, into a draft system, see what happens, see what is drafted.  Then we can decide what the next step it, would that be ok?
[2008-05-28 14:27:49] <jayansonvv> Then if nothing else we could just do a pointer post - echo effect
[2008-05-28 14:27:58] <jayansonvv> we have had no traffic there, right?
[2008-05-28 14:28:07] <NonvocalScream> lemme check
[2008-05-28 14:28:28] <NonvocalScream> The last incoming link was set 7 May.
[2008-05-28 14:28:43] <NonvocalScream> jayansonvv should we go ahead with the above, draft area?
[2008-05-28 14:28:49] <jayansonvv> sure
[2008-05-28 14:28:53] <jayansonvv> where's the page again?
[2008-05-28 14:29:07] <NonvocalScream> http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Blog#Suggest_a_topic
[2008-05-28 14:29:22] <NonvocalScream> I'll reconfigure it to look like a post drafting area, we will see what happens :)
[2008-05-28 14:29:44] <NonvocalScream> Unless someone else wants to reconfigure it first...
[2008-05-28 14:29:48] * NonvocalScream glances at Az1568
[2008-05-28 14:29:49] <NonvocalScream> :)
[2008-05-28 14:29:59] <Az1568> heh...
[2008-05-28 14:30:56] <brianmc> I see Wikipedia is now on the syllabus in Australia
[2008-05-28 14:31:01] <jayansonvv> can we make that page spit out an RSS feed?
[2008-05-28 14:31:18] <jayansonvv> or i guess i could just watch it
[2008-05-28 14:33:32] <NonvocalScream> jayansonvv you talking about the drafting page?
[2008-05-28 14:33:34] <kibble> jayansonvv, add &feed=rss to the end of the url on the history page
[2008-05-28 14:33:41] <NonvocalScream> yup what kibble says
[2008-05-28 14:33:45] <jayansonvv> is it that simple?
[2008-05-28 14:33:48] <kibble> yes
[2008-05-28 14:33:50] <NonvocalScream> If you want to rss it, it may be best to use a subpage
[2008-05-28 14:35:08] <Az1568> NonvocalScream: You can do it, i'm sorta busy atm :)
[2008-05-28 14:35:09] <jayansonvv> right right
[2008-05-28 14:35:18] <NonvocalScream> ok Az1568
[2008-05-28 14:35:25] <NonvocalScream> later on tonight I'll mess about it :)
[2008-05-28 14:35:34] <Az1568> :)
[2008-05-28 14:36:30] <NonvocalScream> I'm going to suggest a blog post on SUL unified login
[2008-05-28 14:36:40] <jayansonvv> I'm not sure if it's there yet - is it?
[2008-05-28 14:36:44] <jayansonvv> I'm playing with it now...
[2008-05-28 14:36:45] <NonvocalScream> This is a major achivement for the Wikimedia tech arena
[2008-05-28 14:36:48] <NonvocalScream> it is
[2008-05-28 14:36:50] <jayansonvv> I like it!
[2008-05-28 14:38:06] <jayansonvv> Maybe I can bug Brion to give us a few sentences on that
[2008-05-28 14:38:16] * kibble goes to eat
[2008-05-28 14:38:31] <NonvocalScream> oops I just did
[2008-05-28 14:38:39] <cary-busy> bah, what's the wikimedia canada list name

[2008-05-28 14:39:03] <jayansonvv> no, it shouldn't :)
[2008-05-28 14:39:10] <NonvocalScream> cary-busy tells me is should be ws, what I need to visit google earth sometime :)
[2008-05-28 14:39:24] <jayansonvv> it is the plural of w
