Who should come? You should. Really.
If you are interested in Wikipedia or other Wikimedia projects, regardless of your level of experience or involvement, or if you are otherwise involved with free content you are invited and welcome.


The Meetup included an exchange of emails by attendees. We discussed the possibility of both future Wikipedia Loves Libraries and Wikipedia Loves Monuments events. People seemed to think doing a WLM event would be a good idea. Although TonyTheTiger had been disappointed in the prior WLL event, one anonymous guest seemed to have ideas for a WLL event. We will do one or the other in the fall if not both. Thanks to everyone who showed up.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 19:32, 28 June 2012 (UTC)
