I'd like invite everyone to 'Wikipedia Day NYC' at NYU this next Sunday January 24th, to come and celebrate the 9th anniversary (!) of the founding of the everyone's favorite online encyclopedia.
We especially want to welcome newcomers to the Wikipedia world with this event! Sign up here: http://bit.ly/wikidaynyc The event will be held at NYU's Kimmel Center at 60 Washington Square South from 1 PM to 7 PM on Sunday, January 24th. The event, sponsored by Free Culture NYU and Wikimedia NYC, and joined by our friends with the eKindling Philippines OLPC group, will include tutorials and all kinds of discussions, and is especially oriented to newcomers and people who are interested in Wikipedia's unique community-driven model of an encyclopedia. There's cake, too. The event is free for everyone.
