Note however that Reddit is an all-male environment, as noted on some
other list linking this:
(Still not as bad as Wikimedia!)
This was a wonderful idea. Thank you both for organizing it. SJ

Just a reminder that the meeting is today for selecting the provisional
board. It is on irc on freenode in the room #wikinews-group . It will
start at 13:00 UTC (23:00 Sydney time). It should take no more than an
hour, and the selection process will largely be consensus driven based on
those who signed up already as supporters of the group.
