I'd expect Speaker's Corner to be reluctant to give out contact details but
I'll do some investigation.


I may be a bit late for the start of the meeting as I have to go out and
grab some dinner now.

Words of praise from David Mitchell

In an article
published on guardian.co.uk <http://www.guardian.co.uk/> , actor and
comedian David <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Mitchell_%28actor%29>
Mitchell praised Wikipedia as being "brilliant." Mitchell defended Wikipedia
against criticisms of inaccuracy, writing "readers should always question
the veracity of what they read and the motives of whoever wrote it, and in
the internet age more than ever.... And if Wikipedia, while being very
informative in most cases, teaches a few lessons about questioning sources,
then that's all to the good." Mitchell also criticized the UK Conservative
Party <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UK_Conservative_Party>  for manipulating
the Titian <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titian>  entry (see related story
_news> ).


Has anyone tried recruiting him to Wikimedia UK?
