Re-sending as a second invitation to those who are interested
(and please feel free to pass it along to others). The page on
MediaWiki.org has been updated recently with additional
The exact area of DC we will be in is called Tyson's Corner.
We're talking with two hotels right now, so we should have
an answer on which of the two we'll be staying at in the next
day I hope.
Also, a few people have asked me about getting funding for
travel expenses. So if you'd like to come and money is an
issue for you, please talk with Danese (danese at wikimedia.org)
Thanks, and I hope to see you all there!
