Public outreach/Open hour
The public outreach open hour is a bi-weekly one-hour discussion forum on the IRC channel #wikimedia-outreach. Everyone interested in public outreach is welcome and every participant is invited to suggest topics.
In order to guarantee a structured meeting, topics have to be announced in advance. If you want to discuss a certain topic, please add your topic to the section on the right hand. Topics shall be added at least 48 hours before the meeting takes place. All topics being added later will be discussed at the next meeting.
Well, then no meeting will take place ;-)
Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a form of real-time Internet chat, mainly designed for group communication in discussion forums, called channels. Our discussion will take place on the channel #wikimedia-outreach. All you need to join our discussion is an Internet connection and an Internet Relay Chat (IRC) client software (ChatZilla is one of the many free IRC clients available). If you've never used IRC before, please have a look at IRC tutorial on the English Wikipedia. And please read IRC Meeting Recommendations before joining the discussion.
Great idea! Hearing the voice of your dialog partner helps to prevent misunderstandings. Every good idea aimed at facilitating our communication is highly appreciated. Just let everyone know about your plans long enough in advance (e.g. at least a week previous to the scheduled meeting)
