Episode 10: Governing Wikipedia

What’s in this episode?

We talk with two veteran functionaries about the system of governance for Wikipedia and what the challenges are. We learn about IP blocks and notability criteria. We ask provocative questions like… does Movement Strategy make everything worse? Does the system need to change or do the people need to better learn to obey the rules? What can be done to strengthen our community governance and the people holding it up? (Note: this will not be the last conversation we will host on these issues, as other voices should be surfaced too)

Our guests are…

Florence Devouard

Co-executive Director of Wiki in Africa, former Steward and WMF Chair, active Wikipedian since 2002

Martin Rulsch

Wikimedia Steward (volunteer) and project manager at Wikimedia Deutschland (employee), active Wikimedian since 2005
