Firstly, I hope that you all have been having a great day, as it has been beautiful all
this week! As you all know, the fall semester is fast approaching, and the Wikipedia
Education Program is searching for Campus Volunteers to help facilitate the teaching of
Wikipedia to students at local Boston-area college campuses. A few people receiving this
e-mail already are already involved in the program and know what I’m talking about, but
for those of you are are interested in finding out more information, you can go here:
. Mainly all of the classes
will be occurring within the 128 belt, but there is one class that will be occurring at
Merrimack College, so if anyone would be able to easily go there, that would be great! In
terms of involvement, if anyone wants to become involved, please let me know, and I will
be happy to do a very brief interview and guide you along on the process.
Finally, some updates on the user group front. Due to the developments at the last
meeting, we have moved from the “In discussion” phase to the “Planned” phase. Our next
group step is to be approved, now that Maia and I have agreed to sign and submit the User
Group Agreement (http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_User_Group_Agreement
hopefully we will be at this stage during our next meeting, when we can plan on electing
an interim steering committee to help lead until our next annual meeting, where we will
pursue the idea of possible chapter status.
If you have any questions about the Education Program, e-mail me (but not the entire
list), and if you have any questions about the User Group, e-mail the list (but not me
directly). Have a great weekend!
