Just a reminder that the WMF will have an unofficial,
community-member-staffed table at the Students for Free Culture
conference, on Oct 11 on the UC Berkeley campus. Find out more about
the conference here: http://conference.freeculture.org/
(Note that we will not table on Oct. 12, which is more of a
planning-meeting/unconference day for SFFC).
Tabling runs from 10am--7pm. We'll start setup sometime after 8am. So
far we just have a basic table & chairs reserved. Hopefully we will
get buttons or stickers to handout. Any ideas for other things we
could do, such as displays on laptops (especially static displays --
the internet access will probably be sketchy), signs, displays of
works reusing Wikimedia content, etc. etc., would be great.
I'm planning to be there all day. If you are planning on attending and
would like to help out with tabling, please let me know directly with
what times you are interested in being there, and I'll try to
coordinate a volunteer schedule. If you know of other wikipedians who
are attending from afar who would be interested in helping out but
might not get this, please forward it along.
I am Mayo (User:Lilaroja). I recently moved from Rome to Berkeley. Apart of
a Wikipedian, I am an active promotor of wiki and Wikipedia tools and
philosophy at the World Social Forum process.
I would be happy of meeting other Wikipedians in the area.
In solidarity! Mayo
If someone from SF could go there, it would be very nice.
There is a huge potential for cross-projects collaboration with IA.
I'd love to go myself, but unfortunately, I am a bit far... ;o)

Subject: [ol-discuss] Announcement: Internet Archive "Using Digital
Collections" Conference, October 27-28, 2008
On October 27-28 the Internet Archive will host its annual conference
in San Francisco with the theme "Using Digital Collections". The
meeting is being expanded from its previous one-day format in response
to participant feedback from the 2007 meeting.
This year we will build on prior themes of creating and accessing
digital content by spotlighting how digital collections are being used
to promote scholarship and to bridge institutional and geographic
boundaries. The agenda will also include technical updates on
scanning projects and a meeting of the Open Content Alliance.
A detailed agenda will be distributed in September; in the meantime,
please block out the dates and plan to join us in San Francisco!
Monday, October 27 - Tuesday, October 28
Golden Gate Club, Presidio of San Francisco
If you have questions or have suggestions for others who should be
invited, please contact Casey Nelson at casey(a)archive.org or Linda
Frueh at linda(a)archive.org.
RSVP by October 1 to casey(a)archive.org

I know I mentioned this at the meetup on Saturday but thought I'd just
post a reminder here. For those who are interested in Freebase, we're
having our own usergroup meeting in about a week's time, on Wed 17th,
at the same location as the Wikimedia meetup. We'll have about 5
speakers, many of whom are developing apps with Freebase's structured
data and API.
If you're interested in attending, please RSVP here:

Hey all, I don't think we're going to send anyone "officially" from the
Foundation, but if volunteers want to put something together for this,
we'll totally support it.

We can fwd to SF list - I'd like to go, and we can give whoever goes
some swag to hand out. What do you think?
I like the sound of it. Gives me an excuse to make some simple pop up
displays for Wikimedia/pedia as well.
