Last night I went to the first volunteer session for this years Mozfest, October 28-30, 2016, Ravensbourne College, London. I rediscovered some of the excitement in the lead up to Wikimania 2014 - indeed I saw many familiar faces.
Mozilla have been very good to the Wikimedia community in the past, I am pleased to be part of renewing this friendly relationship. As they are still looking for volunteers, I am sending this out to Wikimedians in the hope some more of us will get involved and share the Wikimedia approach with others at Mozfest. If you are interested in volunteering check the Mozfest volunteer page.
As the event is taking place in East London, it will be a topic of conversation at the East London meetups:
- East London Meetup 7: Tuesday 27th September 2016 — 19:30 - 21:00 Canary Wharf: perhaps we can see what strands WMs want to follow up at Mozfest
- East London Meetup 8: Tuesday 27th September 2016 — 19:30 - 21:00 Canary Wharf: this will be a Mozfest Fringe event, so it will be an opportunity for Mozfest volunteers to find out a bit more about the Wikimedian community.
Even if you are not able to commit to Mozfest it would be great to see some more faces at the East London Wikimedia meetup.
all the best
