As part of the FOSS event called Carte Blanche (http://cb.csmit.org/) to be held
at the Madras Institute of Technology, a Wikipedia workshop is being conducted
on February 6 between 9:30 am and 4:30 pm. Following is the proposal, the exact
timings will be finalised soon.
* English Wikipedia - general introduction for participation (Sundar)
* தமிழ் விக்கிப்பீடியா பயிலரங்கு (Tamil Wikipedia Workshop by users Manian,
Sengai Podhuvan, Paridhimathi, Surya Prakash, and Mahir)
* Hacking with Wikipedia (Srikanth's previous presentation will be used +
Sundar's introduction to pywikipediabot and a few bot examples + Mahir's talk
about templates and other things)
The organisers have kindly agreed to give us a stall as well. If any of you can
participate or, better still, conduct sessions, you're most welcome.
On a sidenote, I've been asked to inaugurate the event on Feb 5 at 9:00 am. All
"That language is an instrument of human reason, and not merely a medium for
the expression of thought, is a truth generally admitted."
- George Boole, quoted in Iverson's Turing Award Lecture
