Hi, Asaf,
Just checking -- I am a Wikipedia editor for the last few years, with 50,000 
However, I do not have a laptop that I can bring to the Wikimedia office.
(I was just there on Feb. 4 for the meeting they had of local Wikimedians.)
Let me know if any chance you might take someone without a laptop, since this 
is on such short notice.

Subject: [Wikimedia-SF] This Saturday: Editing Workshop at WMF for Fulbright 
To: "San Francisco Bay Area Wikimedians" <wikimedia-sf@lists.wikimedia.org>
Date: Tuesday, April 10, 2012, 12:43 PM

Hello again, Bay Area Wikimedians!
I have been talking to the west coast Institute of International Education, 
known for running the Fulbright scholars programs, and we have agreed to hold 
an editing workshop for visiting Fulbright scholars (i.e. Fulbright scholarship 
recipients from around the world studying in Bay Area universities).

The editing workshop will be held at the Wikimedia Foundation office (149 New 
Montgomery St., 3rd floor, San Francisco, a two-minute walk from the Montgomery 
BART), on Saturday April 14th, 12pm-5pm, and approximately 12 scholars, a few 
IIE staff members, and a few new WMF employees will participate.  Lunch and 
refreshments will be provided.  Bring your own laptop, please! 

We'll need volunteer veteran Wikipedians to tutor the visiting scholars in 
basic editing, introduce them to Wikipedia norms (possibly not just in English 
Wikipedia), and help them navigate to useful places such as 
[[Wikipedia:Backlog]], or WikiProjects matching their academic (or other) 

If you're interested in attending and providing tutoring, please let me know in 
the coming 48 hours (I apologize for the very short notice!) so we can plan the 
I look forward to seeing some of you on Saturday!
