- Location: Wikimedia Foundation offices (149 New Montgomery Street, 3rd Floor San Francisco, CA 94105) - Google Maps view
- Event: An edit-a-thon in honor of WikiWomen's History Month
- Hashtag: The Twitter and social hashtag is #wikiathon
Come meet your fellow editors and help improve Wikipedia articles related to women's history. Food and drinks will be provided (vegan/vegetarians welcome). Don't know how to edit Wikipedia? That's ok, friendly, experienced editors will be here to help!
Everyone is welcome to come edit Wikipedia with us at this event. Women, new editors, those who manage library and archive collections that relate to women's history or women's issues, those who want to learn how to edit or can teach others how, and anyone with an interest in women's history are particularly encouraged to attend.
This event falls on St. Patrick's Day, therefore venues for happy hour might be tough to locate. If a volunteer wishes to take on the task by coordinating something, you are encouraged! But at this time, no specific plans have been made. (Feel free to update if an event is planned.)
What to bring
- a laptop
- ideas for topics or articles you might want to work on (though suggestions will be provided for those just looking to be put to work)
- Some suggestions related to broader women's history can be found here.
- Requested articles from WikiProject Women's History (a long list of people, organizations, and topics from around the world)
- any relevant reference materials you might have
- a friend - we love to meet new would-be-editors! (you can also bring your spouse, kids, family, etc.)
- or, if you don't have any of the above, just bring yourself :-)
- any digital photos you've taken that might be appropriate for our topic
Feel free to mention if you'll be bringing a friend, or family member. Children are welcome. New editors are also welcome to signup for the event on our Eventbrite page.
(Simply click the edit button, add your name and hit save page. Or have a friend or Wikipedian sign you up!)
