I am going to be moving to Brattleboro Vermont at the end of July/early
August and am very excited to be moving within the general radius of WM
Boston / New England Wikimedians more generally.
I am visiting Brattleboro in May during the week of 24-30, and am trying to
schedule a meetup for either Memorial Day (May 24) or sometime else during
that week, just to see if I can pull some Wiki(p/m)edians out of the wood
To find out more about the event, and to help me figure out where/when to
schedule it please respond at:
A reminder about our monthly meeting tonight:
5 Cambridge Center (vestibule), Cambridge, MA
Discussion topic: What's up with gender gap on Wikipedia
Session leader: Yours truly (Maia Weinstock)
Also, we are in need of session leaders for the rest of the spring. Would
anyone like to volunteer to host in May or June? You get to choose the day
and agenda, but must be willing to lead discussion on a specific topic and
follow up logistically with attendees.

As the upcoming Boston group meeting will focus on gender gap projects
across Wikimedia, I would really love your feedback on the Inspire Grant
proposal, "Bored with Boards: Attract Pinterest Users to Wikipedia
The project would entail initiating a match-making program between
Wikipedia articles and women who are actively engaged in content creation
and evaluation on female-dominated social networks, such as Pinterest.
Thanks a lot!
Bored with Board
Hope you've had a good month! I am going to lead our next meeting on April
Topic: Gender gap projects across Wikimedia — What's new, what's working,
Thursday, April 23, 7 p.m.
5 Cambridge Center, vestibule next to Clover Food Lab
Question: Would anyone like to volunteer to host and run our May meeting?
Ideally there would be a common topic to start and then you can freely chat
about whatever. You can decide on the date but will need to be the shepherd
in terms of leading the meeting and following up with ppl if there are
questions about logistics, etc.
A note on location: There is a public vestibule next to the Kendall Square
Clover Food Lab that is open during the evenings. It seems to me this would
be a great place to hold our monthlies, as there are tables and chairs for
quiet conversation and food nearby for those who would like to grab
Please RSVP via Meetup if you are on there for April 23:

Sue Gardner, former ED of the Wikimedia Foundation, received the
Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism from the
Harvard undergraduate community of humanists, atheists & agnostics, and
she's giving a public lecture on Friday April 10 at 7:30 at Harvard. Free!
Everyone should go! She tells me her talk will be a love letter to
