I've BCC'ed all attendees of the Meetup. Hey, The Second Wikipedia Meetup in COIMBATORE was help on Sunday, the 12th of February 2012, from 11am to 2pm at the KGISL Institute of Technology [KITE], Saravanampatti, Coimbatore-35. The meetup was attended by 5 people including me.
Bala [User:SodaBottle] was unable to attend as he was busy with some other work. All the attendees [except me] were Engineering Students. We started of with a basic introductory session to what Wikipedia is, and how it works. I mostly echoed what Bala had said in the last meetup. We moved on to how the Community runs, how an individual benefits from contribution [the usual enhancement of skills, improvement of language stuff]. After this, I took some time to explain what Wikipedia is NOT, including answering one question: Why does the Kolaveri video not exist on Wikipedia inspite of being World Famous? This was what we spoke about. The computer we were provided with didn't work and there was noone from the administrative staff to help out since it was a Sunday, so we let it go. That was all that happened. We hope that by next meetup, we'll have more active members. Last time, there was me from English and Bala from Tamil. THis time Shanmugam from Tamil. We sincerely hope more people join us. -- Regards, Srikanth Ramakrishnan, Sathyamangalam-Gobichettipalayam Star Gazers, Coimbatore.
