Greetings! I am User:Groceryheist.
I'm new to the list! Happy to be here!
I'm a graduate student at the University of Washington and I research
online collaboration. My PhD advisor is Benjamin Mako Hill,
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Benjamin_Mako_Hill> who you may know.
I'm writing to introduce myself, and also to invite you all to join my
class next quarter. You see, I'm teaching a class on online communities,
which was last taught by Mako in the Fall of 2015. As before, a
substantial part of this class has the students learning Wikipedia and
how to edit (using WikiEdu <wikiedu.org>). Last time, some of you
visited class to debrief with students about their experiences with
Wikipedia. I think that meeting Wikipedians in person can be a powerful
learning experience, and may increase the chances that students stay
involved with Wikipedia beyond the course. I hope that some of you
would be willing to come visit my class on Thursday February 14th at 1:15.
Thank you for your generosity!

At the annual meeting we were told that the financial statement would be
available in time for Board members to review it before the end of the
year and sign off. I realize we are just coming out of a holiday, but
there are only 5 days remaining in the year, 2 of which are another
holiday weekend. If the report has been posted, I don't see where.
says "To be posted."
Hi Seattle-area Wikimedians,
Would anyone like to join me to see the Christmas Ship Parade of Boats on
Friday, December 14? There are two show times available. See
www.argosycruises.com/christmas-ship-parade-of-boats/. I imagine that there
will be some fun opportunities for photography for Commons.
Alternatively or in addition, would people like to have an end of year
social meetup at Cafe Allegro?
I believe that there will be an official Cascadia Wikimedians annual
meeting, and I don't want to conflict with that. My suggestions above are
for fun and social connection.
