Hi All,

I was talking to another today about interest in setting up a WikiData
learning event in Manhattan, where the entire focus is on educating
ourselves and each other about the possible uses of WikiData.

WikiData was a big focus of the tech track at Wikimania, and among the
murmurings of most other sessions.

I think we could use some sort of informal meetup where we can all learn
better ways of using it, and perhaps also what kinds of projects we can
suggest it to. For me, I want to start talking to GLAMs about it, but I
don't know a lot of use cases of institutions doing so (yet!)

Anyone else have interest? Perhaps we could do this meetup somewhere in
lower Manhattan (WiFi a necessity!)
