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.

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 <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Signpost/2009-02-16/In_the _news> ). Has anyone tried recruiting him to Wikimedia UK?
