Hi folks, The first Wikimedia Café meetup was surprisingly well attended with four people. Also, a few people contacted me off list to express interest. So, I will host another Café meetup next month, again one hour before the WMF-hosted Wikimedia Activities Meeting. If you're interested in the Café then please mark your calendars now, because I will send at most one more reminder before the September meetup.
