Sorry, I started the meeting but the meeting ID number was wrong. I don't
know how that happened. I think that this problem has been corrected, so if
you were trying to connect, please try again.
Hi, the Wikimedia Café for January will be on
Wednesday the 23rd at 11 AM
Pacific / 7 PM UTC. The Zoom link is below. Because of the monthly limit
for emails from any one person to Wikimedia-l and my wish to conserve my
remaining emails to that list for other topics, I likely will not send a
reminder about this event, so please mark your calendars now if you want to
