A reminder to everyone that Wikipedia Day @ NYU is this Sunday, ie the day after tomorrow.
Sign up here: http://bit.ly/wikidaynyc Welcome newcomers and wiki-wannabes! Welcome to old hand Wikipedians and people who want to learn more about our relevance to libraries and other institutions. Bring a friend! Bring a lightning talk! Bring a scrabble board (or whatever other fun geeky stuff you can think of)! And be ready for pizza, and especially for cake. More details of the event below in the previous message.
