Hi Karen,

Sorry I did not get back to you earlier. I can think of a couple of options so far: 

1) Campus libraries: It seems it is easy for registered campus organizations to get access to meeting rooms. The problem is, although Berkeley Wikipedia club is a registered group, room reservation can only be done by a "signatory" for the group. The group mailing list itself is inactive - I wonder if anyone on this list (Kevin Gorman?) is a signatory. 

2) The Berkeley Public Library: They seem to have a public room for community events (free, with free wifi) if you book it well in advance. http://www.berkeleypubliclibrary.org/community/book_a_meeting_room.php 

3) I've written to my friend who works with the Compass Project, a student support group in the physical sciences, to see if they have any space that we can use - but I've yet to hear back from them.

Among these, the Berkeley Public Library looks like the safest bet. I'll let you know if I can think of anything else..

Hello, all.

I've taken up the organizer role for the Berkeley Wikipedia meet-up group. I'll do some figuring out on how to use Meetup. Would the person who volunteered to find a space on UC campus please contact me?

I presume that we are aiming at a September first meeting, given how summer seems to disrupt schedules.

If we can't find other meet-up places, my home has wifi, various computers and screens, networked printing, and a fridge. We can try a meeting here, if it's not a large one.
