Come one, come all!
Our next meeting for Wikimedia NYC is Saturday October 16 (next
weekend) at the historic Jefferson Market Library @ 425 Avenue of the
Americas (6th Ave) 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 future 'Wikipedia Academies' and Wiki Workshops for different
groups in the NYC area, 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).
