I would love to see an SF Loves Wikipedia event too, but yes --as you suggested, Cary-- it would need to be driven by volunteers. The Wikimedia Foundation's not the SF chapter or even the US chapter; we shouldn't do stuff for SF that we can't do for Cairo or Montreal or Johannesburg.
(Having said that, if something gets underway, I might participate as a volunteer too :-) -----Original Message----- From: Cary Bass <c...@wikimedia.org> Date: Mon, 28 Sep 2009 16:57:45 To: San Francisco Wikimedians<email@example.com> Subject: [Wikimedia-SF] SF loves Wikipedia? (was next meetup) -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 I would also like to see us do something like "San Francisco Loves Wikipedia" or "The Bay Area Loves Wikipedia" or similar, given the fact that we were unable to take part in last February's "Wikis Love Art" because our museums did not get back to us in time. See <http://uk.wikimedia.org/wiki/Britain_Loves_Wikipedia> as an example of a future event. I think we might even plan something for sooner, on a smaller scale. Heck, I'm even willing to devote myself under "volunteer time" for something like this :) Cary Jon Davis wrote: > ...crickets chirping and all that jazz... > > Anyways, the last meeting 2 important suggestions came up. 1) We > should have meet ups more often (like once a month) with the > knowledge that people simply wont make every single one (rather > than trying to accommodate everyone every time). 2) We should have > "field trips" - translation: We should have a meetup where we go > and _do_ something rather than sit around and chat. > > Since last time we talked, I'd say we should do a field trip. > We've got a small list on-wiki already [[w:Wikipedia:Meetup/San > Francisco#Future]] ( http://enwn.net/Ae10 ).
