Hi All

While on the subject of doing something I'd like to take this opportunity
to announce

*Toodyaypedia*our latest WikiTown QR project, this comes as of the
result of a lot of
hard work by a number of people including our President who spoke with the
Shire while in Perth to launch Freopedia, this will include a Wikitakes
event on Saturday
SatuSuro, Andrew Owens and myself will spend the day unlocking
mysteries of Wikipedia for the public while shire staff will be approaching
people with cameras to upload photographs from the Toodyay Agriculture
Show, which also happens be celebrating 160 years since its first
show(there has been only 4 years where the show hasnt occured). This will
be followed up with workshops on 2 November.

Shire Museum staff will be using Wikiversity to create a number of
exercises for school students to do prior to visiting the museum, while at
the museum and follow up projects afterwards, while these will be Toodyay
museum specific the formula/formats etc will readily replicable for any

Shire Tourism staff will be focusing on developing Wikivoyage content for
the region, Library and Community Resource centre staff will be readily
available to help the community add content, today SatuSuro and myself
spent 4 hours with them working thorugh contributing to Commons, it was a
wonderful collaborative effort where we showed one person how to create an
account and they then help other participants do the same, then I show
walked the group thorugh uploading a photograph using upload wizard they
each then went on to upload more photographs and not just ones I had
supplied for the workshop but also some of their photographs by the end of
the session they were uploading their own photographs, adding categories,
then adding content to en.wp articles. Given the small number of regular
contributors in WA the 8 new people today are a significant increase in
editors over here and definately took the idea of contributing.... Watch
this space more exciting things happening soon
