I'm so excited about the West Coast WikiConference happening this weekend,
January 15! We are very pleased to have two fabulous speakers lined up:
Ward Cunningham, inventor of the wiki, and Kevin Kelly, co-founder of
"Wired" magazine. We plan a day-long event of speakers and open space
sessions, followed by a special birthday party for Wikipedia hosted by the
Wikimedia Foundation (offsite at GAFFTA).
The conference is filling up quickly -- we are at over 2/3 of our absolute
maximum capacity for the venue! THE DEADLINE TO REGISTER IS THIS WEDNESDAY.
You can register on Eventbrite: http://wcwc2011.eventbrite.com
If you are planning to come, please register ASAP so we can plan the food
etc. There is also a scholarship for current project contributors who can't
afford the ticket; please let me know (by sending your situation and your
username) if you are interested in this.
Additionally, we are looking for on-site volunteers to help with
registration etc. Let me know directly at phoebe.ayers(a)gmail.com if you can
