I'm going to be submitting a presentation about the work I've done with two
archives and an online library as Wikipedian in Residence and the power of
utilizing open culture data. It'll be a slight overlap to presentations
I've given at other library conferences, but, it'll be a chance to show off
unique open culture opportunities...

If panels or other things come into fruition I'm happy to participate as
well if desired. And yes, I love licensing talk ;)

Thanks Phoebe for posting this.
