At San Francisco Meetup 4 November 10th 2007

For the past few years I've been working as a LAMP engineer in Mountain View, California also known as Silicon Valley. I created an article more or less on a whim, and finding I enjoyed it, signed up as a registered user the next day. The name Prove It was actually a quote from Dean Edell, who advocates making decisions and laws based on facts and research instead of other more traditional methods.

The Great American Wiknic[edit]

Hi there! In the past, you've expressed an interest in local meetups of Wikipedians. Well, here's your chance! On Saturday, June 25, we'll be joining Wikipedians in cities all over the country for the first annual Great American Wiknic -- the picnic that anyone can edit! We'll meet up at a park in SF -- hopefully in the sun -- all other details are still in deliberation!

If this sounds fun, please add your name to the list: Wikipedia:Meetup/San Francisco/Wiknic and add that page to your watchlist. (And of course, feel free to edit that page with your ideas, questions, etc.) I look forward to wiknicking with you! -Pete (talk) 00:05, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
