Hi, Shreyas. Thanks.

The problem with the campus is that its wifi is not open - each user has to have a separate login. There are folks who can give us logins, but it's a bit of a pain.

The BPL has open wifi, but their public room rules say:

"Permission to use the Library’s Community Rooms or Electronic Classroom will be granted to Berkeley-based civic, cultural, educational organizations or businesses, or to locally-operating government agencies, departments or commissions. Organizations not located in Berkeley may be required to provide proof of regular operation or programs within Berkeley such as brochures, newsletters or website printouts."

However, Asaf got a room there once, so I'm going to consider that a possibility.

Hi Karen,

Sorry I did not get back to you earlier. I can think of a couple of
options so far:

1) Campus libraries: It seems it is easy for registered campus
organizations to get access to meeting rooms. The problem is, although
Berkeley Wikipedia club is a registered group, room reservation can only
be done by a "signatory" for the group. The group mailing list itself is
inactive - I wonder if anyone on this list (Kevin Gorman?) is a signatory.

2) The Berkeley Public Library: They seem to have a public room for
community events (free, with free wifi) if you book it well in advance.

3) I've written to my friend who works with the Compass Project, a
student support group in the physical sciences, to see if they have any
space that we can use - but I've yet to hear back from them.

Among these, the Berkeley Public Library looks like the safest bet. I'll
let you know if I can think of anything else..

    Hello, all.

    I've taken up the organizer role for the Berkeley Wikipedia meet-up
    group. I'll do some figuring out on how to use Meetup. Would the
    person who volunteered to find a space on UC campus please contact me?

    I presume that we are aiming at a September first meeting, given how
    summer seems to disrupt schedules.

    If we can't find other meet-up places, my home has wifi, various
    computers and screens, networked printing, and a fridge. We can try
    a meeting here, if it's not a large one.
