this is the lamest mailing list I ever subscribed to and probably the
wikimedian meetup group with the highest moment of inertia compared to
its size (I know physics is not on my side here, but thats OK it never
really is) I have been part of.
Don't get me wrong I know that anyone I met so far in this Community
does some amazing and impressive projects inside and outside of the
wikimedia universe. And I realize that the fourth dimension is the most
limited and that hanging out with other people at Edithatons has to be
weighted against this other projects. But there is also statistics if it
would take the amount of Editors from more than 7 million Inhabitants to
make a event every other month nothing would ever take place in Germany.
For instance Stephen LaPorte proposed a meetup next saturday a
Edithathon at the Foundation (Stephen is that dead already?) and no one
even looked at the Page. The Wicnik is 2 weeks away and there is some
interest but neither place nor food wich are at least in my opinion some
important part of an Picknick.
OK enough Rant back to you Silence.
Knowledge should be free!
Hello Bay Area Wikipedians!
Some of you know me through Wikipedia. Others through the *Sudo Room
hackerspace <http://sudoroom.org/>*, and others more through the *Oakland
Wiki <http://oaklandwiki.org/>*/*Local Wiki <http://localwiki.net/>*. It
has been a while since I've posted on this list. Hi! :]
Some of you might also be interested in the Mapping Educational Ecosystems
Project (MEEP)'s mapping party, East Bay edition. They will be using
Oakland Wiki and Local Wiki to highlight local educational resources across
intersections of age, space, time and more. Below is the invite!
WHEN: *June 21st, 10a-5:30p*
WHERE: *South Berkeley Public Library // The Internet*
RSVP: *link below*
I'd love for you to join us for MEEP: Mapping Educational Ecosystems
Project <http://www.meepwiki.org/>'s first community learning lab.
MEEP aims to help solve one of today’s biggest challenges - how to build
learning institutions that work for people at all stages of life, from
birth until natural death. Our core values
<http://www.meepwiki.org/#%21values/c12fe> are rooted in community
informatics and the knowledge sharing revolution, which is at the heart of
At our lab <http://www.meepwiki.org/#%21lab/c8f4>, we'll map our
community's educational ecosystem, its many centers for learning and
teaching. We'll also practice cooperative learning techniques such as
spatial mapping, visual thinking, and affinity mapping. Our community
learning lab is on 21 June 2014 from *10:00 - 5:30 pm* at the *South
Berkeley Public Library*.
As a participant, you'll enrich our community's lens for education and
spread the word and worldview of community informatics. You'd also find
allies and form natural partnerships with individuals and organizations
that promote community learning. Plus, you'll eat tasty treats!
If you can join us, please RSVP
