all. Will there be anyone driving to the CHM event from the East Bay with
1-2 extra spaces? Please email me directly to this address!
Happening tomorrow! Please join if you can!

Subject: [Wikimedia-california] SF Wiki Meetup - Dec 12, 2012 at
Computer History Museum
Hi all, hope folks from the SF Bay Area can make this event
coordinated with the Computer History Museum to get a backstage tour
and to brainstorm about their upcoming Wikipedia exhibit.
Please spread the word to Silicon Valley friends non-Wikipedians. The
Museum is right near the Googleplex and is an amazing facility.
PS: I'm driving up from LA, so you don't even need to be from SF area
to make it!
San Francisco Bay Area Wiki Meetup at the Computer History Museum
Time: Wednesday, December 12, 2012, 4pm to 8pm.
Location: Computer History Museum, Mountain View, Calif.
Meet Wikipedians and help edit a museum exhibit about Wikipedia!
The purpose of the meet up is twofold:
1. Meet fellow Wikipedians in the San Francisco Bay/Silicon Valley
area while getting a behind the scenes tour of the Computer History
2. Help edit this exhibit! The Museum is crafting an exhibit about
Wikipedia that will debut in 2013. What should an exhibit about
Wikipedia have? How should it display Wikipedia's activities, live,
for visitors? Who better than ask than Wikipedians. Meet the museum
staff to brainstorm around ideas and how to display and visualize
Wikipedia to the public.
Who should attend: Wikipedians and non-Wikipedians alike, but
especially museum or technology enthusiasts
Address: Computer History Museum,
1401 North Shoreline Boulevard Mountain View, California.
Contact: Andrew Lih (User:Fuzheado), Wikipedian
RSVP and info:
Kirsten Tashev, VP of Collections and Exhibitions

Hi all, I hope the holiday season is treating you well!
I'm pleased to announce the third Wikipedia Women's Edit-a-thon, hosted by the California League of Women Voters and Tech Liminal, a co-working space in Oakland.
The theme is "Women and Democracy." League members will bring valuable expertise to a topic that could use lots of work on Wikipedia, and I look forward to bringing Wikipedians and League members together. (As always, if this topic doesn't excite you, you're welcome to work on any wiki content you like.)
The edit-a-thon will be Saturday, December 15 from 2-5pm; beginners are invited to come arrive promptly at 1pm for an intro session.
Please see the Wikipedia meetup page for more details, and to sign up. And let me know if you have questions or ideas!
