Ada Lovelace Day: 24-Hour Global Edit-a-thon 2021-10-12 4:00:00 AM 2021-10-12 9:00:00 AM 11 International

Join a global edit-a-thon to create more biographies of women in STEM on Wikipedia.

Inspired by English mathematician and pioneer computer programmer Ada Lovelace, a group of volunteers are holding a 24-hour global event to create more biographies of women in STEM on Wikipedia.

Ada Lovelace Day 2021 robot with badge.png

This combined New Zealand and Australia event on 12 August 2021 will go from noon New Zealand time (NZST), then in Australia from 3pm until 8 pm Sydney time AEDT, covering a total of 10 hours of the 24 hour event and then handing off to Wikipedia friends in Asia, Africa, and the UK.

This edit-a-thon is especially for people who want to learn how to edit Wikipedia and create new biographies about women. There will be coaching available for the duration of the event with four sessions run first by a team in Aotearoa and then a team in Australia.

Training sessions for new Wikipedians will be held at 3pm and 6.30pm AEDT. No experience required!

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics and covers a range of careers from architect through to aeronautical engineer, including chemist, data analyst, epidemiologist, biologist, doctor, food technologist, data analyst and software product designer.

Wikidata is a free and open knowledge base that can be read and edited by both humans and machines. Launched in 2012, Wikidata acts as central storage for the structured data of its Wikimedia sister projects including Wikipedia, Wikivoyage, Wiktionary, Wikisource, and others.

People are meeting up across the world to help link data across different Wikimedia platforms. The City of Sydney Library has joined this movement in partnership with Wikimedia Australia to host training and edit-a-thons to increase and improve content relevant to our diverse communities.

No experience needed. Just sign up for a Wikipedia account in advance and bring along your laptop and connect to the library’s free wi-fi!

Automated Decision-Making Wikipedia Edit-a-thon 2021-10-26 11:00:00 PM 2021-10-27 2:00:00 AM 11 National

Edit-a-thon hosted by the ARC Centre for Automated Decision Making and Society

The ADM+S Centre aims to promote greater understanding of automated decision-making technologies, applications and impacts and working with Wikipedia, Wikidata and other Wikimedia platforms is one of the best ways to do this. To support this process ADM+S we are running an editathon.

Blurred people walking across yellow lines.jpg

The ARC Centre for Automated Decision Making and Society(ADM+S) is a new, cross-disciplinary, national research centre, which aims to create the knowledge and strategies necessary for responsible, ethical, and inclusive automated decision-making.

One of the aims of the ADM+S Centre is to promote greater understanding of automated decision-making technologies, applications and impacts and working with Wikipedia, Wikidata and other Wikimedia platforms is one of the best ways to do this. To support this process ADM+S has appointed Amanda Lawrence as Wikimedian-in-Residence for 6 months to help with engagement between Wikimedia platforms and the researchers, students, partners, projects and issues associated with the Centre.

To get the ball rolling we are running an edit-a-thon to bring together ADM+S members and other interested people to work on Wikipedia (and Wikidata) content related to automated decision-making systems and their social, legal and ethical implications.

We now have a new Wikipedia page on automated decision-making, however this is just a stub and needs lots more work. We also need to improve pages for content, people and organisations related to the centre's work that are already on Wikipedia and to create new pages as required.

There is already lots of content on Wikipedia about automation, AI etc but some pages don't have much up to date information or could be improved in lots of ways, particularly in terms of social impacts. Citations to quality research sources are also a key issue for Wikipedia content and it is always great to increase pages on women in technology.

The Edit-a-thon will start with an introduction to the work of the Centre and the topic of automated decision making and an introduction to Wikipedia editing. We will then break into groups for those who are new to editing and those who are more advanced to come together and start editing.

More details and lists of suggested pages to work on will be posted on the ADM+S Wikimedia in Residence page.

Please register with Wikipedia before starting the workshop.

Automating Wikimedia: Open Knowledge, Linked Data and Search 2022-05-04 6:00:00 AM 2022-05-04 7:00:00 AM 10 International

Join the ADM+S Centre for a discussion on search results, fact checking and the free knowledge movement

The power of search engines has become further entrenched in the wake of the current move to restructure the Web according to the logics of ‘linked data’ and the ‘semantic Web’. With the goal of sharing information according to structured formats that computers (rather than humans) can easily process and analyse, linked data engineers are developing algorithms that abstract information from fact sharing websites like Wikipedia into short, uniform statements that can be more efficiently shared, compared and analysed. Yet it is often unclear when viewing structured information on search results where the information is coming from – some is from Wikimedia but not all – and whether it is credible. At the same time the Wikimedia Foundation has launched Wikimedia Enterprise a new cross-departmental service of the Wikimedia Foundation available via enterprise.wikimedia.com which aims to provide commercial services for ‘organizations that want to repurpose Wikimedia content in other contexts, providing data services at a large scale’. What are the implications of these recent trends for verifiable search results, fact checking and for the free knowledge movement?

Assoc Prof Heather Ford is Head of Discipline for Digital and Social Media in the School of Communications at UTS. She has a background working for global technology corporations and non-profits in the US, UK, South Africa and Kenya. Her research focuses on the social implications of media technologies and the ways in which they might be better designed to prevent misinformation, social exclusion, and algorithmic bias

Liam Wyatt is the Senior Program Manager at the Wikimedia Foundation and has been closely involved with the development of Wikimedia Enterprise. Liam was founder of “GLAM-Wiki” – the intersection of the cultural sector and the Wikimedia movement – and was the world’s first Wikipedian in Residence in 2010.

Prof Mark Sanderson is Dean for Research and Innovation at RMIT University for the Schools of Engineering and of Computing Technologies in the STEM College. He is also a Professor of Information Retrieval (IR). Mark’s research focuses on information retrieval (IR) (e.g. web search engines). He has published on topics such as cross language IR (CLIR), summarization, human interaction and search, image retrieval by captions, word sense ambiguity. His speciality area of research is in the evaluation of searching systems.

Prof Julian Thomas is Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making and Society, and a Distinguished Professor in the School of Media and Communication at RMIT University. He has written widely about digital inclusion, automation and other topics relating to the pasts and futures of new communications and computing technologies.

Two key conversations about the Census and Wikimedia platforms, and the Universal Code of Conduct

Universal Code of Conduct

A discussion and opportunity to offer feedback on the Enforcement Draft Guidelines of the Universal Code of Conduct, a document that will outline the mechanism, reporting system, division of role, and disbursement of responsibilities within the Wikimedia movement to enforce the UCoC.

Guided by Ramzy Muliawan, Facilitator, Movement Strategy and Governance at the Wikimedia Foundation, the conversation will focus on current and best practices of enforcing similar behavioural policy within the context of Wikimedia volunteers in Australia and Wikimedia Australia.

Census Tools: A discussion

The 2021 Census results will be released next year. This offers massive challenges in terms of updating and maintaining data across Wikimedia platforms. What opportunities might there be for automation or tool development to assist with this process? What needs are there and what might we build together?

Ed Noveras, Project Management Officer, of the 2021 Census Dissemination team and Hugh Stehlik, Digital Service Designer, Dissemination Systems Support and Modernisation from the Bureau of Statistics, will provide and update about the Census and join the discussion.

Join Elena Lappen from the Movement Communications team will be joining our July community meeting to discuss the Wikimedia Foundation’s new annual plan.

How can the Wikimedia Foundation better support the movement in accomplishing objectives and overcoming obstacles? How can it help people in the movement solve problems? What does the movement most want from the Wikimedia Foundation — and how might better communications help?

The Wikimedia Foundation conducted a series of focus groups with participants across communities to explore these questions. They have synthesized the findings into six key recommendations for how the Foundation can better support communities through communications.

Elena Lappen from the Movement Communications team will be joining our July community meeting to discuss the findings and their impact on the Foundation’s new Annual Plan. She will lead a discussion on how to utilise these findings in support of the Australian community and larger regional community.

Regional conference for Wikimedia communities throughout East, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific in Sydney

ESEAP Conference 2022 is a regional conference for Wikimedia communities throughout the ESEAP region. ESEAP stands for East, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific. Taking place in Sydney, Australia on 18-20 November 2022, this is the second regional conference for these Wikimedia communities.

East and Southeast Asia and the Pacific is a developing region within the Wikimedia community. There is a significant number of Wikimedia contributors across the regions, and we have grown the community since our first meeting in 2018 and continue to work towards establishing a well-managed hub. This conference will bring participants from various ESEAP communities together to strengthen collaboration and better understand the issues faced in the region and to look for solutions.

ESEAP will be hosting Wikimania 2023, the first in-person Wikimania post-Covid. Following on from the last Wikimania in 2020, this conference will also bring the Core Organising Team for Wikimania 2023 together to help design Wikimania for the post COVID and climate impacted world.

Our last ESEAP regional meeting was hosted by Wikimedia Indonesia in Bali in 2018, and a successful ESEAP Strategy Summit was held in Bangkok in June 2019. A lot has changed since then so we aim to re-connect people of the Wikimedia movement within the ESEAP region, to share ideas, and to build regional collaborations.

How editing Wikipedia reshaped an academic career

For Dr Sam Bowker, creating a Wikipedia on decorative Egyptian tentmaking changed his life. His research for the page led to a series of peer-reviewed publications and exhibitions, and ultimately grew into a project that was recognised by the ARC for research impact in 2018.

Egyptian Khayamiya - a typical "Street Panel" design by the tentmakers of Cairo, circa 1970-2000..jpg

This February community meeting, we will hear about his collaborative work with the Historians of Islamic Art Association on initiatives for Wikipedia editing as a teaching strategy that has resulted in new pages, expanded stubs, and improved existing sites for Islamic art. Dr Bowker is the Sub Dean Graduate Studies (Faculty of Arts & Education) and a Senior Lecturer in Art History and Visual Culture at Charles Sturt University.

Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia, it’s the 6th most visited website on the internet. Wikipedia content is created and edited worldwide by volunteer contributors.

It has long been acknowledged that there is a lack of diversity among contributors.

People are meeting up across the world to help remedy the imbalance and bias in the diversity of voices on Wikipedia. The City of Sydney Library has joined this movement, hosting edit-a-thons to increase and improve content relevant to our diverse communities.

Everyone is welcome to join our online edit-a-thon. It will be led by Kirsten Thorpe, Nathan “Mudyi” Sentance, and experienced Wikipedia editors Toby Hudson and Caddie Brain. Kirsten’s professional and research interests relate to Indigenous self-determination in libraries and archives. Nathan works to ensure that the cultural and historical narratives conveyed by memory institutions are being told and controlled by First Nations people. With their help, participants will focus on improving articles of importance to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities on Wikipedia.

No experience is necessary to join the edit-a-thon. Bring your own laptop or tablet and connect to our free wi-fi or use one of our devices. (A limited number of library devices will be available for use at the event).

Participants are encouraged to set up a Wikipedia account prior to the workshop.

Franklin Women is excited to be hosting a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on World Health Day to increase the online representation of women working in health and medical research.

It's back!! We are thrilled to announce that our second Franklin Women Edit-a-thon will be held on Thursday 7th April 2022.

Register here!

Did you know that there is a serious gender bias on Wikipedia, one of the world’s most-visited websites? Only 19% of the people profiled on Wikipedia are women. This means that many talented women (and their work) are not getting the recognition they deserve, as well as critically skewing perceptions about the contributions that women make to society.

Wikipedia Edit-a-thons are a wonderful (and fun!) way to combat this bias and make the internet just that little bit better.

Franklin Women is excited to be hosting a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on World Health Day, Thursday 7th April, to increase the online representation of women working in health and medical research.

You don’t need any experience to participate as we will provide all the training you need and several experienced Wikipedians will be there to help you on the day. Editing Wikipedia might sound daunting but the platform is designed so that anyone can contribute, and you can do this in many different ways – from improving the quality of existing articles to adding a whole new page, it all makes a difference!
