Very awesome that no travel is required!
Yes, we did that just for you ;-). Seriously...we were hoping to
attract some of the many "super-users" of MediaWiki in the greater DC area.
What help do you need from local DC wikipedians?
Although we are not
yet a chapter, we could perhaps help with getting a venue (though
danese probably can handle it too) or other ways of helping organize.
Well, we've spoken to our CrisisCommons pals about help seeking a venue
(after scrubbing out with some of our vendor friends), and we're hoping
to close on that issue this week or early next. We're currently looking
hard at Balfour Center and also hoping we'll get an offer from Sunlight
Foundation or NPR. Either way, we should be able to open a block of
hotel rooms shortly.
Glad you think so :-). This is a "first year" version of the Hack A
Ton. I'm sure we'll learn a lot and hopefully schedule more of these
around the world.
