That works for me. Anyone who wants to ride with me,
please send me where you would like to meet, so I can plan the best route and figure out
what time we should arrange to meet up. You can ping me separately if you like so we
don't spam the list or have addresses recorded. I'll have 3 seats, 4 if someone
doesn't mind the middle in the back, so first-come first-served.
a ride, but I'm also PERFECTLY happy catching the bus to Boulder -- it's free for
me as a college student! So put me at the very end of the list, and let me know if you
have a seat free on Friday! I live really close to Spencer, so you won't need to
reroute much on my behalf.
I think given the greater interest in Denver and the
fact we'll have better participation there, it would probably be wise to move it back
there. Any objections to that?
I'm loving this! As Spencer pointed out, the only
people who might not be able to make Denver are Gribeco and Isarra. I'll e-mail them
separately and double-check with them. If both are fine, then I'll get rid of all the
Boulder stuff and put out a Geonotice. Hopefully tonight!

So here's what I propose: Anyone who is absolutely gung-ho about about taking America
on behalf of Wikipedia this weekend should definitely sign up in the likely attendees
section. In this editor's humble opinion, I think that whoever has the balls, or lady
balls, to sign up as an attendee of high-likelihood on the site should have the greater
say-so in how we organize this year's event.
Could I please ask we keep this
mailing list testicle-free? We've had under-18s at Wikipedia meet ups before, and
I'd rather keep things "12+" as much as possible.
However, there is another option... we could be so
bold as to take back America at two locations, in both Denver and Boulder... but I
understand that could take away from the spirit of Colorado Wikimedians all working as one
I LOVE this idea, especially since my friend Andy is going to miss this one
since he's out of town! I'm out of town on Sunday and next weekend, but I'm
not going to mind TOO much if you organise something while I'm away. If anybody would
like to organise something in October, set up a page and let us know!
So, let's do this: Since this year's
Boulderites and Denverites are so landed, whoever is on the sign up sheet by, let's
say mid-to-late-day tomorrow, should have the most say in how we might go about organizing
this, giving great deference to their geological location. And I swear to everyone, if I
had more money and a car, I would drive all of you anywhere. What are your thoughts on
such a plan?
If I hear back from Gribeco and Isarra tonight, I'll put in for a
geonotice. Is everybody okay with the meeting location (Market Street Station, Denver) and
time (4pm)? Does Denver get creepy or weird or crowded or absent after 4pm or anything?
By the way, as a completely irrelevant aside, I just
saw the Let It Be movie from the 70s and it was incredible. Highly recommended :-)
Is that the Beatles' Let It Be? I've heard it was really depressing -- is
it? If you like Beatles movies, you'll LOVE
