On January 15th, 2011 Wikipedia will turn 10 years old.
Cities around the world are throwing parties to celebrate and I’d like to host one at Hive13.
I’ve added it to the calendar and made an eventbrite for it: http://wikipedia10cincy.eventbrite.com/
I just found out about it today, so I don’t know a whole lot of details yet, but I believe I will be getting some swag/merch to giveaway. There will likely be some other activities too.
More information about the whole thing can be found at: http://ten.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page I’ll keep you posted as I get more info.
This Wikipedia party will be this coming Saturday, January 15th, 2011. I’ve put the start time down as 7:00pm. I plan on being here earlier to clean up and get things organized. So far, almost 30 people have signed up via the eventbrite page: http://wikipedia10cincy.eventbrite.com/
If you’re coming, let me know. Also, I’m still looking for wikipedia-related activities to have going on, so if anyone has any ideas, let me hear them.
I’ve got 50 t-shirts in men’s and women’s sizes and a whole bunch of buttons and stickers to give out to anyone that shows up. http://www.flickr.com/photos/dave_menninger/5353792778/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/dave_menninger/5353180465/
I’ll try to have a little bit of promotional material on hand about Hive13 to give out. And I’ll make sure people know where the donation jar is.
What time are you planning on going to the hive to clean? I can come by and help.
(sorry for sending that to everyone)
I’m grabbing something to eat right now and will head down afterwards. Probably around 430 or 500.
