Is Wikimania cancelled?

What was only whispered about during the Kudpung kerfuffle – that Kudpung would not be showing anyone the fleshpots of Bangkok because of the coronavirus – is now being talked about openly on the mailing list.
Wikimania is not scheduled until August, but Board of Trustees member Heilman, the same one who nominated Guy “Wikipedia has cancer” Macon for admin, has already made a statement:


Well, yes, as a medical doctor who works in Canada, just across the border from America’s notorious coronavirus incubator, Seattle, he is probably even now working on the Canadian version of Trump’s Mexican wall.


So how did Guy Macon’s RfA turn out?

Oh my.


It’s not every day you see a blanked RfA.  And the reason might be … on his talk page, a message purporting to be from the guy’s wife — I guess he wants us to think he has shared his password.

In the meantime another Ritchie333 nominee, as the Manchester clique continues to pack the court.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Requests_for_adminship

Meanwhile, back in the U.S., nothing to see here, as Trump’s coronavirus czar Mike Pence wipes his nose with his hand just before shaking hands with all the top docs at the press conference.

And in France…

 

As the French government told its citizens that cocaine does not cure coronavirus, the citizens tweeted back comments like “WTF, trop tard !“, “merde….“, “Mdr“, and even “PTDRRRRRR merde“.

Also, “France, Amid Coronavirus Outbreak, Holds Largest-Ever Gathering of People Dressed as Smurfs, for Some Reason“.

Are those blue gloves?  …”Two by two, hands of blue…”

  2. “Dream R” …that is incredible … and the art! For some reason I want to call this jazz fusion, from what I have been able to find out (no Wikipedia article) it is part of the London jazz scene which is becoming somewhat international. Here is a listing of more London jazz club appearances, including some “women in jazz” programming. https://www.thejazzmann.com/news/article/
