You say "we all have a meeting planned for Allegro the day afterward,"
but isn't that supposed to be tonight (the day *before*)? If I am wrong
about that, could someone let me know ASAP? As far as I know, we have
*always* held those meetings on Tuesdays, and I have another commitment
I plan to be at tonight's meeting, and I think that it is useful that if
people want a chance to talk to me about the strategy planning, we get
that chance. I cannot make an event Wednesday evening on this short
notice. If I'd known even 24 hours ago I could have arranged it, but at
this point I have a different commitment, meeting someone downtown
around that time. If people want to cancel tonight's meeting and meet
tomorrow instead, feel free, but please let me know (by email, before
4PM) not to come tonight and do not expect me to be there tomorrow.

I sent this email a week ago but it appears to have not gone through?
I think I may have emailed from the wrong address.
In any case, I know the notice is very short but I wonder if anybody
be able to make it to my class on Wednesday?
Details are below.

I mentioned this at the annual meeting but here is the official
I am putting together a panel of Wikipedian for my class on online
communities and I would love for any/all of you to join! The class
meets next next Wednesday and I was planning for the panel from
5:30-6:20pm in Mary Gates Hall (MGH) 389 at UW.
Please (a) let me know if you can make it and (b) try to arrive at
or before 5:25 we can get going *at* 5:30!
There's nothing to prepare but I'll probably ask you to briefly talk
about your experience in Wikipedia and the students will have
The class is a big one (90 students) and by Wednesday all the students
will have all finished attempts to make significant improvements to
stub class articles and written short essays in the User page
namespace reflecting on their experience in Wikipedia over the last 6+
We'll be spending the first half of the class talking through their
experience with the WikiEd curriculum and comparing it to the approach
used by the Wikipedia Adventure and the Teahouse.
I'm happy to take folks out for coffee or a drink afterward. Since we
all have a meeting planned for Allegro the day afterward, maybe this
can substitute for that meeting?
