Subject: Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon Tomorrow, Sat Nov. 2nd at Jefferson Market
To: glamwik...@googlegroups.com

Dear Wikipedians,

Wikimedia NYC, NYPL Jefferson Market Library, and METRO would like to
remind you of the Edit-a-Thon that we'll be hosting tomorrow from 10am-5pm
at Jefferson Market Library in Greenwich Village . Please forward this
message to anyone that you think will be interested.


*Adding to Wikipedia  is an exercise in research and writing to avoid
biasing language, and a way to contribute to the framing of public
knowledge. It also allows you to instantaneously share your knowledge and
subject specialties with an international community. The average American
takes a look at 5 Wikipedia articles a day and Wikipedia is consistently in
the top two search results on any given topic.*
An Edit-a-Thon is an event meant to build attendees Wikipedia editing
skills and critical understanding of Wikipedia content and most of all, to
generate Wikipedia articles, content, organize pages, and upload
photographs on topics of interest to attendees.
