So, I've been in contact with [[User:LauraHale]] , and she's coordinating efforts for a few Wikimedia Australia people to come to Colorado to take pictures and write articles about a Paralympic ski event that's happening in Vail this December. ( https://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Wikinews:IPC_Nor-Am_Cup )
I was thinking about it, and how cool would it be if we met them at the train station and welcomed them to the US? Their train arrives on December 1, at 18:38 (local time, I'm assuming). A small group of Colorado Wikimedians would go a long way in making them feel welcome.
I've already talked with LauraHale, and she likes the idea. So, what say y'all?
Wikipedia Loves Libraries will be at Norlin Library, CU Boulder, this
Thursday! The focus is going to be mainly on primary resources, but
come on down to meet with other local Wikipedians! It'll be on
Thursday, November 1, at 4pm.
I'm going to be doing a presentation on "your first edit" on
Wikipedia, covering the absolute basics of using the Sandbox, the edit
page, previewing your changes before committing and taking part in
conversations on Wikipedia. Lisa suggested that this might be more
interesting if multiple editors presented this -- giving multiple
perspectives and giving us a chance to show off our diversity. Any
volunteers? Let me know!
