Hello Folks,

Hope you are doing great and bracing yourselves for this Saturday's
edittathon that shall evolve around but not limited to the subject of this
Email.

We shall cover the remaining bit of the Kenyan syllabus as a basic intro to
Wiki and later on do more editing on Wikipedia.

My proposal is we could as well engage in the April Wikification Drive (see
[1] below) but of course not limit ourselves to that as well.

The venue of the Meet up is at the environs of Upper-hill in Nairobi at
Mugo's place which is near the public Service Club.

For those who do not know how to get there please contact me off-list for
prior arrangements on how to get there.

The edittathon starts at 600PM local time and runs through the Night till
Sunday Morning.

  *What to Bring:*
*
*
1. Laptops plus the chargers of course;)

See you soon.

PS: There is an experienced Wikipedian who is in the country on a short
private visit and he tells me that he would like to be part of this
edittathon on 21st and to meet other awesome Wikipedians.

//Stephen
