Come one, come all! Our next meeting for Wikimedia NYC is Sunday March 21 (next weekend) at OpenPlans @ 148 Lafayette St in Lower Manhattan..
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. A couple of big topics of discussion, out of many, will be preparing for our 2nd annual Wiki-Conference New York this summer, and making the way for 'Wikipedians in Residence' to volunteer at local cultural and academic institutions. 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: OpenPlans @ 148 Lafayette St, between Howard and Grand in Lower Manhattan. Meeting to be held in their fantastic penthouse event space on the 13th floor. 5:00 PM onwards: Meetup at OpenPlans, and then walk together to a local neighborhood restaurant (help us decide!).
