It was great learning about offline Wikipedia meetups' dynamics in the March Conversation Hour through Dr. Schwitter’s research. Thanks, DCW, for organizing!
It is a fantastic step in the right direction.
It [The March Conversation Hour] was one of the best online gatherings I have attended in the recent time. I am honored to have been invited by the DCW.
Thank you all for this very insightful afternoon! You are doing amazing work with DCW – I’m happy I was made aware of it through this event.
An affiliate like DCW, hailing from South Asia, trying to cover the heritage of the community it represents in the largest open knowledgbase, is really a wind of hope for us who are constantly working to build capacity and strengthen the local movement. These conversation hours are an amazing attempt to increase global interaction and perspective sharing. I hope that this initiative will continue building capacity and a practice of collaborative mindset through the facilitation of exchange of ideas and experience.
