Come one, come all!

Our next meeting for Wikimedia NYC is Sunday January 18 at Columbia University.

This is a meeting for volunteers to the projects of the non-profit
Wikimedia Foundation, and everyone else too, who has ever looked at
Wikipedia and wondered what's going on behind it.

One big topic of discussion, out of many, will be a special planning
session for our February 'Wikipedia Loves Art' event with Shelley from
the Brooklyn Museum and Alex from the Metropolitan Museum of Art:

We're also on Flickr:

And Facebook:

So spread those links around :)

Other topics will be the next stage of our progress as a chapter and
projects we might pursue such as classes at the New York Public
Library (we may be officially approved as a chapter by meeting time),
and discussing issues like Biographies of Living Persons articles.

We'll also be collecting folks to join our little 'Wikipedia Takes the
Subway' adventure which will be held the day after the meeting.

We welcome all guests.  If you support open education and free
culture, we are your people.  If you have a project you want to work
on with us, this is a great opportunity to get acquainted. If you want
someone to give a talk or teach a class with an inside view of
Wikipedia, meet your volunteers.  And if you just have any questions,
we'd be glad to try to answer them.

Remember, the agenda here is up to you!  I encourage anyone who is
interested to sign up to give a presentation or suggest a topic for
general discussion at our wikimeetup page (given below).
