Natalie Dessay article[edit]

It's good to see that you are expanding it from the French article. However, a comment needs to be inserted in the TALK PAGE rather than in the body of the article itself.

Someone had already deleted your comment. I moved it to the Talk page. Vivaverdi 20:39, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your comments. Keep up the good work. I'll take a look and see if I fill in some dates, etc. by checking my refs. on Dessay (wo is here in Santa Fe right now singing "Pamina" in Magic Flute. Vivaverdi 22:11, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

I've been looking at the French version and doing some "translation" myself (at least, I get the gist of it, I hope...). However, 2 things puzzle me:

  • "Dessay was encouraged to study voice when someone heard her sing Pamina's aria in a production of Moliere's L'amour peintre"

What does this mean??

  • Where did you find out that Dessay will sing in La traviata in Santa Fe in '09???

Thanks for the response on my talk page. Anything more you can add to the English article would be appreciated. I did have to remove some unsubstantiated comments without any supporting "evidence". Vivaverdi 00:38, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Pittsburgh event for Wikipedia's tenth anniversary[edit]

Hi! Since you have a connection to Pittsburgh, I wanted to invite you to the Wikipedia Tenth Anniversary celebrations we're having in Pittsburgh on Saturday, January 15. During the daytime, we're going to be having a photo contribution drive where anyone can bring in their digital photos or prints and Wikipedians will teach people how to upload them and add them to articles, and maybe introduction to Wikipedia workshops as well. Then in the evening, we'll have fun at the Carson City Saloon. There will be free Wikipedia t-shirts and other goodies, as well. See the Pittsburgh meetup page for more details. I hope to see you there!--ragesoss (talk) 15:51, 1 January 2011 (UTC)

Teaching with Wikipedia Workshop at CMU (Aug 15)[edit]

Since you are one of the editors in the Category:Wikipedians by alma mater: Carnegie Mellon University, I'd like to invite you to the Teaching with Wikipedia Workshop that will take place at CMU on Aug 15 (this workshop is open to general public, and is a joint imitative of CMU and Pitt). There will be another workshop held at Pitt in the Fall as well. It will cover how to include Wikipedia in one's course (WP:SUP) and also how to become a Wikipedia:Campus Ambassadors. Pennsylvania has currently only one ambassador (myself) and it would be great if we could recruit at least several more. Ambassadors help course instructors, showing them how Wikipedia works, and interact with students. Many current ambassadors come from the body of students, faculty and university staff; it is a fun adventure, and adds to one resume/CV, to boot :) If it sounds interesting, feel free to ask me any questions, or to come to the workshop.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| talk 20:14, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
