声明 The coming years will be a challenge to Wikimedia (in terms of new technologies, user retention, increasing diversity, directions of content development). I would like to help re-shape our strategy&governance, find good roles for WMF and the chapters, reach out to Academia, as well as de-bureaucratize the movement.

我的经历:

Wikimedia

I’ve been elected to chair the FDC for 3 terms. A steward, checkuser/admin/bureaucrat (pl-wiki). Ex-ombudsman. I ran strategy workshops for Wikimedia chapters.

学术方面

我是一名管理学教授,人称书呆子 (NeRDS)。我是维基百科第一篇民族志的作者(“Common Knowledge?”,斯坦福大学出版社 (Stanford University Press))。我曾在康奈尔大学、哈佛大学、伯克利大学和麻省理工学院举行过多次访问会面。

Professional

I’m on advisory boards of Copernicus Science Center (20 million USD budget/year), and of English Teaching grants. I’ve advised on strategy professionally, and I've been a mentor/juror in international startup competitions (e.g. Intel Business Challenge, KIICS).

多元化方面

我是欧洲人,知道自己可得益于其他特权 (种族、性别等)。我曾在美国和丹麦生活过。然而,我成长于一个现行审查制度和宣传制度的政治体制内,家境简朴(父母每月薪酬约为 30 美元),这一经历丰富了我对南半球多元化及问题的认识。我是波蘭榮譽委員會光榮遊行的一位成員。我希望成為第一位非來自北美或西歐的董事會成員。

声明 我们作为运动和团体现在在转折点。我们也面这个双挑战:过去的时候,我们什么完成?我们的将来怎么建设?我真相信我们做了伟大的事情,但我们可能做更多。我们可能做更多,尤其是发展我们的发展中世界的势力,建设我们的多样性,鼓励团体的发育,领导我们的技术发展,还有培养维基媒体计划的共享所有权。

In this time of great change I intend to find stronger ways of empowering our communities in the developing world, reinforce the role of affiliates in spreading the movement worldwide, streamline the movement's bureaucracy to respond better to community needs, and work to restore communities’ trust in the Foundation through fostering constructive dialogue.

My experience:

  • Wikimedia: I bring ten years' worth of experience with involvement in both Wikipedia and non-Wikipedia projects. I've also presented on Wikimedian community dynamics at different conferences.
  • Governance: I've been a board member of Wikimedia Philippines since 2010 and a member of the Affiliations Committee since 2013.
  • Professional: I was recently the community manager for a prominent Singaporean startup.
  • Diversity: My Wikimedia experiences were shaped in Asia and Eastern Europe, and I am intimately familiar with the movement's challenges and opportunities in the developing world.

声明 The mission is to disseminate knowledge. The obstacles to negotiate are very varied, including scepticism and misunderstanding by outsiders, and good old human nature from insiders. We must reach out for cooperation to those who can help us build, in schools, colleges, universities and professions; and as providers to all those who by poverty or social discrimination have knowledge withheld from them, as well as to those who want to complete assignments or revise for quizzes. So we need to communicate as fully possible with all those who engage with us in whatever form.

About me. 65, British, have worked for 25 years as manager and/or leader in large-scale development aid projects throughout the former Soviet Union. Previous work in clothing manufacture (UK and Sri Lanka), enterprise development. Degrees in economics, maths, psychology and music history.

Created many Wikipedia articles including GAs and FAs. Run an annual music festival in Slovakia. Honorary Research Fellow, University College London. Writer and lecturer on musicology.

声明 Are we reaching our goal of enabling every human being to access the sum of all human knowledge? What should we do to further the mission? Participation and collaboration are key elements of the movement and its spirit, but these need trust to be well established. We should develop a path away from the mentality of "us vs them" that we have experienced in many occasions.
About me

I discovered Wikipedia through the free software world. I begun editing in 2007 and since then I have dedicated a growing share of my free time to Wikimedia: I have been elected in 2010 to the board of Wikimedia Italia where I have been Program Coordinator (2010-2011), Vicepresident (2011-2014) and finally Treasurer (2014-). In 2012 I helped organising Wiki Loves Monuments in Italy and in 2013 I joined the WLM international team. In July 2013 I have been elected to the Funds Dissemination Committee (this was my candidacy statement).

In 2013-2014 I worked in a research centre in Trento (Italy) and my work revolved around OpenStreetMap and Wikipedia. I have a M.Sc. in Physics and since November 2014, I am a PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Trento, Italy.

When I was running for the FDC a friend and long-time Wikipedian asked me "Why aren't you running for the board?", my answer was: "Because the path is long, but it should be walked", this is why I am running for the board, because I want to bring my experience and view in.

声明 The Wikimedia movement, the best thing since sliced bread, faces a challenge that needs to be overcome sooner rather than later; it is the rift between the Foundation and the editor community. This challenge is not just about communication. The Foundation has grown beyond its own expectations. It is now protruding into software development, media literacy, Internet governance, and education. Despite the current abundance of donations the question of what its core business is, needs to be asked and answered.

I am a lecturer of Computer Science at the Polytechnic of Namibia. I was a member of its Senate for five years, and the head of the Computer Networking department for three. I am researching and writing about the Wikimedia phenomenon as part of my work and as a hobby. I do outreach, lobbying, experiments, and critical analysis. I have presented Wiki[m|p]edia-related thoughts on conferences and in publications, scientific and popular. As such I tick the boxes in the Call for candidates: I reside in Africa, I have experience with a small language project in the incubator. I know and learn and teach about technology, and I have management experience of projects and people. Besides that I am editing English Wikipedia to improve the coverage of Namibian politics, geography, and history.

声明 Hi, I’m a Psychology lic. I’m a long-time volunteer who started out on en.wp nearly a decade ago and am now most active on Meta and Spanish Wikipedia, where I founded the LGBT Wikiproject. I’m a founding member of Wikimedia España, and served as its Vice-President, as well as being involved in international cooperation through Iberocoop. I’ve also served as a member of the Affiliations Committee and on the Individual Engagement Grants committee. I am a big believer of empowering people through official recognition and/or grants.

I’m currently serving my first term on the Board, which has included the ED transition and some high-profile staff changes. It is said that Calm seas don’t make good sailors, and I think it’s true. Being now familiar with Board dynamics and how the WMF works, I offer my experience to effectively support our shared vision, ensuring diversity is at the heart of WMF’s strategic efforts to retain and increase editorship. Our volunteers are our key advantage. I believe the WMF is here to serve Wikipedia and its sister projects, and to support our communities while we face the challenges ahead together. Times of change are challenging: I’m deeply committed to broadening channels for community participation in WMF governance and policymaking. You can count on me for that.

声明 Wikimedia is a modern wonder - and yet, it must change: most of our projects, as they are today, cannot truly succeed. To achieve our mission, we must increase the effectivity of every single contributor. At the same time, the communities are often seen as change resistant - but falsely so: they do welcome change, done right, as I have shown with Wikidata.

I joined Wikipedia in 2003, was the first admin on the Croatian Wikipedia and co-created Semantic MediaWiki (used at NASA, WHO, FSF, translatewiki, etc). I co-wrote WMDE’s first EU research grant, RENDER (budget 4.4M€). With the communities, WMF and WMDE, I developed the Wikidata proposal, secured 2M$ in donations, hired and led the team. Wikidata became the biggest source of new contributors in the past decade. Now at Google, I help to release Freebase content to Wikidata.

I have

  • led large changes in our projects
  • secured major donations and funding
  • worked in small and large Wikimedia projects
  • increased individual effectiveness
  • sustainably engaged new contributors

I worked with and understand the strengths and weaknesses of our infrastructure, the MediaWiki software, the communities - and how they interact.

In the last twelve years, Wikimedia has become an important part of my life - case in point, my wife, also a Wikipedian, and I met at Wikimania! As a trustee, I would offer my skills and experiences to guide and help Wikimedia in the changes ahead of us.

声明 When I started using Wikipedia back in 2004, internet was rare in my country; we didn’t have any good keyboard to write in our language, there was no one who could show me how to write a Wikipedia article or at least tell that I too can write an article. So, it was not until 2008 that I started contributing on Wikipedia on a regular basis. That’s the challenge we still face in the developing regions of the world - the global south where I belong to.

From the start of my involvement, I've been focusing on building the Wikimedia community in Bangladesh, picking volunteers and grooming them up. I am a founder member & Treasurer of WM Bangladesh. Now we have a growing, active and vibrant community. I’ve been involved in organizing most of the Wikimedia events in Bangladesh, from planning to execution, from arranging logistics to running sessions. Some of these events are: Wikipedia's 10th Anniversary Programs in Dhaka-2011, first ever Bengali WP Unconference-2012, WP Zero Launch Event in Dhaka-2013, Nationwide Bengali WP 10th Anniversary Programs - 2014 & 2015.

As a FDC Advisory Group member, I took part in formulating the FDC framework for WMF. I am a member of WMF’s Funds Dissemination Committee for 3 years & served as Vice-Chair for 2 terms.

I've completed undergrad in Finance, MBA in Technology & Operations and have 7 years’ experience in financial sector. I believe I can bring diverse perspective & diversity to WMF board.

声明 今年我們有許多傑出的候選人,這些人之中不少已經有豐富的經驗。我先前的工作成果可以在我的用戶頁上查到。然而我個人覺得,我們應該集中精力討論現在維基媒體運動面臨的問題以及這些問題的解決方法。

維基媒體運動面臨的挑戰包括:

  • 編輯者人數下降,英文維基百科尤其嚴重。
  • 沒有被發現的付費編輯。
  • 跨語言之間的模板使用缺乏相容性。
  • 放在維基百科但違反著作權使用的內容並未被移除。
  • 編輯社群並不支持的軟體開發。
  • 除了英文以及幾個主要的歐洲語言的內容之外,其他語種維基百科的內容深度與廣度都仍然十分貧乏。
  • 維基媒體運動所使用的語言都太複雜,超過平常所需。
  • 想要協助維基媒體運動的合作組織不知道要怎麼跟維基來合作。

上述問題有些相對簡單,只要技術上做些修復即可。其他也可以透過跟不同的組織合作來達成。但上述所有的問題都可以透過維基媒體基金會與編輯社群之間協調出更好的合作關係而有所改善。大約從去年開始,我減少了我在急診室外科醫師的工作時間,以便改善維基百科。我已經嘗試要去解決上述的問題。也許上述問題中有部分可能永遠無法解決,維基媒體基金會與社群一同合作應該可以大幅的改善現況。我將會優先努力讓這樣的願景成真。

声明 I am a content writer on English-Wikipedia with nearly 58,000 edits and more than 250 starts. I'm also well versed on Wikipolitics through participation and reading at Jimbotalk, Wikipediocracy (where I contribute as "Randy from Boise"), ArbCom, and AN/I.

We hear that the community doesn't own Wikipedia, that WMF owns Wikipedia. This is actually true. But we are not helpless. We, the community, have three designated seats on the WMF Board to provide direct input as fundamental policy decisions are actually made.

We, the volunteers, are in an uneven power relationship with WMF's expanding paid staff. We see the negative effects in the SuperProtection fiasco on De-WP and the seemingly inexorable move towards implementation of the execrable Flow.

This is why the community desperately needs alert, critical, questioning voices for its seats on the 10-member WMF Board.

The WMF Board has the vital function of oversight of a multimillion dollar charity's professional staff, organizational goals, vision, and general practices. Don't expect strong oversight from those afraid to question authority and to say their piece when necessary.

Thanks for your consideration.

声明 I have been on the WMF Board since 2009, and chair the Audit Committee.

The WMF is restructuring this year, open to new ideas. It doesn't want to continue as before: with large, slow projects and troubled community relations. We should all take this chance to bridge WMF-community gaps:

  • Replace centralized programs with distributed ones
  • Design software with the communities that will use them
  • Solve pressing project needs (experiment on new spaces instead!)
  • Use targeted messaging to inspire contributing knowledge more than money
About me

On-wiki, I've been an editor, translator, publisher, and steward. I led Wikimania in 2006 and planned the Kiswahili WP Challenge in 2009.  

I've lived in Germany & Kenya.  As Director of Content at One Laptop per Child, I oversaw sending Wikipedia and Wikijunior to 2M children in the developing world. I am currently a Fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center, and chair the technical committee of the Digital Public Library of America.

This will be my last run for the Board. Supporting Wikimedia is one of the joys of my life, but I support term limits and have proposed one for adoption this year.

声明 WMF Vision

We can be a lot more than we are. Two main barriers:

Community tools: Mediawiki falls far behind contemporary norms in user experience for non-readers, e.g. group communication, community development, cross platform experience, API/developer platform. Obvious symptoms: The developer community is tiny. Wikiprojects are lacklustre, but could be a huge source of community growth. Sister projects exist in silos, hindering contribution & readership. We could be the home of data journalism on the web, but we aren’t.

Organisational outreach: We are largely ignored within the wider media landscape; it is critical to our mission to develop more effective ways of interacting with academia, education, politics & government, journalism, publishers of all types, the startup ecosystem, third sector etc, beyond expecting them to become editors.


關於我

I was originator and conference director for Wikimania London, the largest ever gathering of Wikimedians & an enormous outreach project. In 2014 I was awarded UK Wikimedian of the Year. I received an IEG Grant for Open Access Reader, a tool to identify significant academic research missing from Wikipedia - an example of a new type of editing, with potentially a new audience. I am currently community strategist for the third largest political party in the UK, & previously was community strategist for the largest UK startup hub.

声明 致親愛的維基人們:

the coming years will be a challenge for our movement. Mobile contributions, organised vandalism, paid advocacy, and above all - changing numbers of volunteers. People should come first. We need to appreciate our volunteers. I believe in direct communication with boardmembers. Full discussion on all issues. If 1000 people want to talk, that is only 3 a day. I believe in less bureaucracy. Simply ask what you need, and we can discuss it. Less paperwork. Hire developers to solve small software requests.

Contributions

I mostly write articles and add images to pages. I’m a steward, admin on wikidata and bureaucrat and ex-arbcom at the Dutch Wikipedia. Also an OTRS-volunteer.

Wikimedia

I'm a member of WM Netherlands and WM Belgium, and assist/coordinate starter courses, GLAM cooperations and activities. Wikipedia won the Erasmus Prize, and I discussed this on television. I currently work with the WMF, to get an online volunteer knighted.

Professional

Medical intern from the Netherlands, with bachelors in medicine and biochemistry. Work at the plastic surgery department of Utrecht University Childrens Hospital, and am a Basic life support instructor.

On diversity

I'm Malaysian Chinese and Dutch. Lived several months with my family in Malaysia and spend time in South America (Curaçao). I assisted at Gender Gap meetings. Am against discrimination in all forms.
