In an effort to change this, the Jake is organizing a Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

communities to participate in Wikipedia editing, and improve its coverage

We will provide childcare, snacks, and tutorials for the beginner editor.
Bring your laptop, powercord and ideas for entries that need updating or
creation. No previous Wikipedia experience required!
