Welcome back from Wikimania 2016!
- Option 1: Shared Experience: What is one way you shared something from your experience with your community (either locally or globally), after the event?
- This year we decided —as Board Members of Wikimedia Chile (along with User:Superzerocool)— to share our experience live on Twitter through our personal accounts and the official account of the chapter. I tweeted (mostly on Spanish) about the sessions and meetings I assisted, many of them related to topics of my interest, as the legal relation of Wikipedia with copyright (freedom of panorama included), privacy (right to be forgotten) and net neutrality. I also posted some stuff on my other social media accounts as Facebook or Instagram. You can see my shared experience in this Storify.
As usual in Wikimanias, I met a lot of people of the Wikimedia movement, including wikipedians, WMF staff and volunteers, and also local people of Esino Lario not (still) related to Wikimedia projects.
I had an interesting conversation with User:Reem Al-Kashif about the implementation of dialects (of "new languages") in different Wikipedias, mostly about Reem's experience in Arabic Wikipedia, that could be replied in Mapudungun Wikipedia. I gave a little interview to User:Mboix of Wikimujeres, about the work of Wikimedia Chile in gender-topics.
Other wikimedians I met for the first time in this conference were (among others) User:Xabier Cañas, User:Vitor Mazuco, User:Satdeep Gill. I also share a lot with User:ProtoplasmaKid, User:Atropine, User:Wotancito, User:Vini_175, User:Oscar ., User:Rodelar, User:Millars, and many others.
As president of Wikimedia Chile, I assisted to the chairpersons meeting (with new ED Katherine Maher and WMF chair Christophe Henner) and the Iberocoop meeting.
