[African Wikimedians] Fwd: Wikimedia Clinic #010 - Tue Sep 15th 13:00UTC - Abstract Wikipedia

Dear Wikimedians,

This is an update from the Wikimedia Clinics series.[1]

On Tuesday, September 15th, at 13:00 UTC[2], we will be hosting Wikimedia Clinic #010.[3] The scheduled segment this time would be an introduction to Abstract Wikipedia, featuring project founder Denny Vrandečić himself!

As always, beyond this scheduled segment, there will be time to bring up any Wikimedia-related questions or topics other call attendees are interested in.

Hope to see you there!


[1] Wikimedia Clinics are live video calls hosted by the Community Development team, as a way to keep in touch during the pandemic, and offer an opportunity to ask questions, share recent work, brainstorm ideas, etc. In addition to whatever topics attendees bring up on the spot, there is a pre-schedule segment in each call.

[2] this time, the time of day was chosen to accommodate the ESEAP region, in particular.

[4] Our experiment using Jitsi-based Wikimedia Meet resulted in a clear conclusion that it is not a suitable platform for Wikimedia Clinic calls, as it cannot reliable handle more than about 10 people, as we learned the hard way at Clinic #009.
