Come one, come all! Our next meeting for Wikimedia NYC is Sunday November 15 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 preparing for our ongoing 'Wikipedia at the Library' classes in planning for the Wireless Harlem nonprofit (Spanish-speaking volunteers could help here!) and at the Brooklyn Public Library. Other topics will include the particular problems posed by Wikipedia articles about racist and anti-semitic people and movements such as the article 'Controversies related to prevalence of Jews in leadership roles in Hollywood', and discussing other issues relevant to Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects. 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). ---Meeting details--- 2:30 PM - 5:00PM: Room 1402 Pupin Hall, Columbia University. Take the elevator to the 13th floor and then walk up one flight of stairs. Meeting to be held in the library at the east end of the hall. 5:00 PM onwards: Meetup at Pupin Hall, and then walk together to either the Chinese restaurant Columbia Cottage, or the Kosher Moroccan restaurant Cafe Nana (help us decide!).
