I had a great time doing this last year and very much regret it
is not possible this year. I have an all-day summer camp staff
training on Saturday, and am attending another event on Sunday.
Please keep me notified of future opportunities to support

We do have a Wikimedia booth spot at Maker Faire, which is next
weekend in San Mateo! (Saturday & Sunday, May 18 & 19th)
We are urgently looking for volunteers who can staff the booth
talk about Wikimedia projects with passers by. It's a fun way to
interact with the public and answer lots (and lots and lots) of
questions; we also have free tickets for volunteers, so you can
the rest of the ultra-cool Maker Faire too.
We are especially short on coordinators this year as several of
long-time volunteer coordinators (including myself) have other
commitments that weekend. Hence the short notice! So we are
* setup help on Friday evening (after work)
* staff for Saturday
* staff and a coordinator for Sunday -- the coordinator will
sure that the booth gets broken down and is adequately
* people with cars who can help drive on Friday and Sunday
Let me and Stephen Laporte (stephen.laporte(a)gmail.com) know if
do any of these things. Wiki page coming shortly.
