Hi everybody!

Thanks so much for your responses, everybody! How about date and time for this 
event? Does September 21 (Saturday) around 11am (so it's _just_ before the 
worst of the noon heat) work for everyone? Earlier? Later?

Yes, walkability is nice, especially if you're a graduate student without a 
car. However, we _might_ be able to get enough cars together for everybody. Any 
volunteers on this mailing list? I have a friend or two I could ask.

Sounds good! Wikipedia Loves Libraries comes around in October/November, and we 
could definitely have more editathons in January and February, once the weather 
really gets icy.

I really like this plan. Here's some articles which could benefit from 
better/more recent photos:
 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byron_G._Rogers_Federal_Building (B&W photo)
 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Children%27s_Museum_of_Denver
 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elitch_Gardens_Amusement_Park
 - More photos of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LoDo?
 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byron_White_United_States_Courthouse (maybe?)
(wider photo?)
 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paramount_Theatre_%28Denver%2C_Colorado%29 
(wider photo?)
 - http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Regional_Transportation_District 
(oddly enough, the only photos of RTD buses on Wikipedia appear to be the 
MallRide -- I'll try to fix this with a few photos of Boulder buses when I'm 
outdoors in the daystar next)

(It's possible that some or all of these images are hiding in 
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Denver,_Colorado somewhere)

Looking at the WikiMiniAtlas (http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WikiMiniAtlas), it 
looks like most of the historical sites are near the Denver Botanical Gardens. 
So another way to plan this could be a day trip to the botanical gardens!
