[CIS-A2K] July Newsletter

Dear all,

CIS-A2K would like to share with you the newsletter for the month of
July 2015. We look forward to hearing any feedback or input you might have.

The Goan Konkani Wikipedia (available at gom.wikipedia.org) has gone
live after spending nine long years in incubation.

Konkani Wikipedia has many heroes, Melissa Simoes and Darshan Kandolkar
are two of the many long-term contributors who joined Konkani Wikipedia
during the Konkani Wikipedia  <at>  Goa University program and are still
active even after the program was formally concluded. Darshan is an
Assistant Professor at the Government College Pernem in Goa. His
professor at Goa University, Dr. Madhavi Sardesai—who passed away last
year—played a vital role in inspiring him to pursue higher studies in
Konkani. Darshan realized that there is a lot to be written in Konkani
when he was introduced to Wikipedia, and after that, he became dedicated
towards contributing to the project.

The Konkani Wikimedia community has been using social media actively to
promote the Konkani Wikipedia project, and to celebrate the successes of
its contributors. After Melissa became the top contributor to the
project, her fellow editor Luis Gomes congratulated her. That brought
Melissa into the spotlight, gaining the attention of editors from the
global Wikimedia community. The community is continuing a tradition to
rewarding the most prolific contributor of each month as the "Wikipedian
of the Month".

Re: ഭാഷ

ഒരു പക്ഷേ, കൂട്ടാണ്മ എന്നായിരിക്കും ശരിയായ പദം. കൂട്ടു ചേര്‍ന്നുള്ള ഉടമസ്ഥാവകാശം/ഭരണം എന്നര്‍ത്ഥം. ഇതുപോലെ മറ്റ് ചില പദങ്ങളുണ്ട്. ഊരായ്മ (ഊരാണ്മ), കാരായ്മ (കാരാണ്മ), നാട്ടായ്മ (നാട്ടാണ്മ). യഥാക്രമം ഊരിന്റെ, കൃഷിഭൂമിയുടെ, നാടിന്റെ ഉടമസ്ഥത/ഭരണം എന്നര്‍ത്ഥം.

അതൊരുതരം ദുർവായനയാവണം. ഒരിടത്തുപോലും അങ്ങനെയൊരർത്ഥത്തിൽ കൂട്ടായ്മയെ ഉപയോഗിച്ച് കണ്ടിട്ടില്ല. ഇല്ലാത്ത വല്ലാത്ത അർത്ഥം ഉണ്ടാക്കി ഒഴിവാക്കേണ്ടതൊന്നുമില്ല. ഇനി ഉണ്ടായെന്നു തന്നെയിരിക്കട്ടെ, പ്രചാരത്തിലുള്ള അർത്ഥത്തിൽ തന്നെ ഉപയോഗിക്കുന്നതിൽ ഒരു തെറ്റുമില്ലതാനും. :-)

MediaWikiTTT-2015

Dear Wikimedians,

 

It gives WMIN and CIS-A2K great pleasure to announce that we have started preparations for MediaWiki Train the Trainer Program. It is a matter of grave concern that while the Indian Language Wikipedias are slowly improving their content and expanding their volunteer base, there is very less and often zero representation from the Indian Language Communities towards MediaWiki software and the available tools around.

 

CIS-A2K intends to bridge this gap by creating and grooming 'tech' leaders in the MediaWiki sphere from the existing Indian Language Wikipedians. MediaWiki Train the Trainer program aims to facilitate discussions around nurturing leadership regarding tech related issues, file bugs that hinder the growth of Indian Language Wikipedias, active contribution towards improving the existing MediaWiki software and understanding the importance of mediating technology for outreach activities. The 4 day residential event will happen in last week of June, 2015.

 

Exact dates and venue will be announced soon.

 

We welcome specific issues that should be discussed during the MWTTT as well as feedback and suggestions. Please write to us if there are any concerns.

 

The event page :

Thanks and regards,

Pavanaja
