Post-meetup summary/Blogs/News[edit]

Please list post meeting coverages here.


  1. After a round of introductions, we decided to give updates on the WikiConference India 2011 to the attendees and also discuss a few items of interest. Members took the opportunity to connect with each other and speak face-to-face.
  2. We were not able to view the Oral citations project video since we did not have screening space. We met in the Food court.
  3. Updates were provided on the GLAM with The Museum, Mumbai. We're still awaiting word from the Museum on a good date and a good time to begin our interactions from. We also decided to approach the Bombay Natural History Society.
  4. We also were not able to talk about the World Heritage Site since it became too late.
