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).
