Lightning talk topics
Lightning talks are very short back-to-back presentations. At WikiConference North America 2019, we have two lightning talk blocks, with each talk lasting up to seven minutes.
Visit 2019/Lightning Talks for more information, the lightning talk schedule, and to sign up with your own topics!
- Caribbean meetup
- IP issues
- Current events on Wikimedia projects
- Edit-a-thon for beginning- to intermediate-level Wikipedians, loosely following the Introductory edit-a-thons model. The goal would be to offer a group of students from Wellesley College (and anyone else who wishes to join) an opportunity to deepen their understanding of how to edit Wikipedia effectively. I would hope for a minimum of 3 hours, which would include a brief introduction and Q&A session, followed by group editing on a specific topic (most likely, U.S. newspapers), with opportunities for sharing back to the group. I'd be happy to work with other in planning and/or executing the session -- please contact me by email if you'd like to collaborate. -Pete Forsyth (talk) 22:27, 30 September 2019 (UTC)
- Screening new articles: a presentation and group discussion on the Draft and New Pages processes. First, a live demo of the current live screening fron New Page Patrol and AfC Submissions, showing the various possibilities. Then, a discussion of what's wrong with it and how we might do it better. Focus about articles with COI and Paid Editing. About 45 minutes to an hour. . User:DGG and others
