People are organising Wikipedia Takes [Place] around America this September to encourage people to take photographs for Wiki Loves Monuments (http://wikilovesmonuments.us/). Last year , we followed around a bunch of photographers and took pictures of buildings on the University of Colorado campus here in Boulder. Does anybody have ideas on what we could do this year?
I'd love an editathon to improve the article on the University of Colorado and noteworthy buildings, people and organisations on campus or associated with them, which we might be able to organise with Norlin Library. On the other hand, it'd be great to have an excuse to enjoy the cooler temperatures we'll hopefully have up here as summer turns into fall!
You can find out more about Wiki Takes America here, if you're interested in organising meet ups elsewhere in Colorado: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Takes_America
