Forwarding because it's so impressive to see Wikipedia exhibited and
photographed this way.

Victor Grigas delivered! :D
Someone also reminded me that xkcd's "What If?" covered a variant of this
topic in "Updating a Printed Wikipedia" <https://what-if.xkcd.com/59/>.
Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at:
Wiknic is Wikipedia's annual community picnic. For those of us who are in
parts of the world where the current season is summer, we usually celebrate
Wiknic in June or July. Wiknic started in the United States, and I'm told
that the idea has spread to other countries with diverse languages
including the Netherlands, Israel, and France. This year's suggested Wiknic
dates are Sunday, July 5th or Saturday, July 25th.
So, organize or join a Wiknic in your area!
You might also consider inviting members of other open source, technology
enthusiast, and public service communities to join you at Wiknic. We are
doing this in Cascadia Wikimedians.
More information about Wiknic is available at
Photos from a few of last year's Wiknics made it to Commons. See
