I hope there will be demos? tasters? of zombie ice cream.  Plus, you can meet the whole Forsyth family :)

Hmm, maybe we can find some zombies and *make* some zombie i scream. I'll put my mom on the task!

Pete - is there a venue yet?   Are you looking for a place that serves food?  We could probably do this in the (power-enabled) public spaces of Wasserstein Hall where the Ada Lovelace editathon was held; campuses are quiet this time of year.

Yes, we have a venue (in Somerville, near the Red Line) -- one that can unfortunately only accommodate 30 people. I made the (perhaps erroneous) recommendation not to publish the location ahead of time, to ensure we don't overflow. But at this point, I'm less worried about that!

I've asked permission to publish the place, just waiting on a response. I'll post back when authorized :) In the meantime, if you'd like to come, please sign up so I have an up-to-date idea how many to expect! (Also note any special dietary needs, we'll be providing lunch.)

My personal focus this week is Public Domain Week -- I'm compiling a list of works that just entered the public domain in Europe and most other countries; many by authors that don't (e.g.) have Works lists on their biographies which is making said compilation difficult :)

Awesome! Don't forget to check Wikisource, I've found Author: articles often have good bibliographies when Wikipedia bios lack them.

Hi Wiki-Pilgrims,

I'm going to be joining this editathon on Saturday, along with a small
NYC delegation, I heard one of the editathon topics was zombies!
