We need to schedule a meeting.
We have some stuff to discuss with the WikiConference West Coast. It's
now late August, and January is just around the corner.
I'm sure there are some other things we can talk about too, perhaps
discuss the WikiConference NYC, and how it wen this time? :)
Maybe we should meet up in the East Bay. How does Berkeley sound?
The Foundation is developing a set of resources for creating instructional
screencasts and is looking for help from the volunteers. They are looking
for (preferably) some experienced contributors to come into the Foundation
office between September 23 and 27 to record the screencasts.
You can find all the details over at
Pete is in charge of the project and asked me to ping the local lists. If
you're interested in participating, please email Pete (CC'd) as soon as
(PS. Some expenses covered!)

Thanks Jon for choosing a date :)
So... don't forget about the meetup next Saturday (Aug 7):
We still need to set a location and time. Please make suggestions, along
with adding agenda items, to the meetup page above.
So far on the agenda:
* reports from Wikimania & WikiSym
* planning for West Coast WikiCon: I have some updates on possible venues;
we have a lot of other areas to go over as well. If you're working on a
venue, can you please try to bring information about it on Saturday or
update the wiki?
