I'd also love to help :) I work for Ushahidi but on a collaborative Wikipedia/Ushahidi project and I'm based half of my week at the Wikimedia Foundation so happy to synch up with folks here.

Hello! I'd love to support this effort!

For those of you who don't know me, I'm Wikimedia Foundation's new Chief Talent and Culture Officer. 
I can touch base with Asaf to help plan something.

Warm regards,
Gayle

Thank you Merrilee for being so generous to offer OCLC resources and space for an edit-a-thon :) Very very cool!

We have started a page on English Wikipedia about the event, please update as needed: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiWomen%27s_History_Month

Hi all,

 

Im Merrilee, and I work at a non profit that supports libraries we are based in Central Ohio, but also have an office in San Mateo. Id be happy to host an edit-a-thon and to reach out to our members that have archival and library collections featuring women (particularly those that have online content in the public domain) to provide fodder. I am a Wikipedia newbie, but we are hoping to develop a Wikipedian in Residence position this summer. I would love to work with a local partner to do something. So Asaf, Id be interested in being a partner in crime!

 

Best,

 

Merrilee
