Welcome, Srishti!

From the MIT Media Lab to Wikimedia Foundation! How great!

It would be great to chat further about your work at the Media Lab with
UnHangouts and at the WMF - and wiki CC WUaS as well; might you participate
in the open ArchCom (Architecture Committee) meeting this afternoon from
2-3pm PT in Internet Relay Chat - #wikimedia-office ...
https://webchat.freenode.net - as a start?

I'd like to invite you, Srishti, (and all
Wikitechans/Wikidatans/Wikimedians in the SF Bay Area) to the Wikidata 4th
birthday party on Wednesday, October 26 from 12:30-1:30 at Red Door Coffee
SF on 111 Minna Street - https://www.wikidata.org/
wiki/Wikidata:Fourth_Birthday/Events. (CC World University and School
donated CC WUaS to CC Wikidata last autumn. WUaS is bringing the cake to
this party. Wiki WUaS is accrediting on MIT OpenCourseWare in its 7
languages+ to create free CC "Harvards of the Web" with free CC Uni degrees
in all countries' main languages. WUaS holds an open hive meeting space at
AFSC / SFFM on 9th Street at Mission on M & W, 10-noon, not far from the
Wikimedia Foundation at all).

(Waiting here to hear if I made the short list for a tenure track MIT Media
Lab junior faculty position. Will head back to Cambridge, MA, to give a
talk and for interviews in late October / early November if I do.)

Welcome to the WMF wiki world of SF and looking forward to meeting and
talking with you in person.

Namaste, Scott
