Subject: Wikipedians and the Computer History Museum
Dear Wikimedia California folks:
I'd like to announce an exciting opportunity for the week of August 13-17.
I've been working with the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA on
a GLAMwiki (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) gathering that
would provide a way for Wikipedians to work with the museum to improve
Wikipedia articles about objects in their collection. If you haven't been
to the museum, it's a spectacular facility in one of the famous Silicon
Graphics buildings in Silicon Valley and hosts a new permanent collection
about computing machinery through the ages. (http://www.computerhistory.org/
Even more interesting, the museum plans to have an exhibit next year about
seven software technologies that have changed our lives, and Wikipedia will
be one of them. This get-together would also be a time to brainstorm and
have Wikipedians give direct input into what is believed to be the first
physical museum exhibit about Wikipedia.
This would likely be a 4-8pm event on one of the evenings of the week of
Interested parties, please contact me by email or as User:Fuzheado on
English Wikipedia on which days you might prefer, and I'll send out a
