This reception and networking event celebrates the one-year anniversary of METRO’s engagement with Wikipedia and its creation of the Wikipedian-in-Residence and Open Data Fellow position. Attendees are invited to connect and socialize with others interested in Wikipedia, Open Data, and Open Access Projects.
During the reception, Dorothy Howard, METRO’s Wikipedian-in-Residence, will give a “State of the Wiki in NYC” with observations about Wikipedia initiatives in New York, and her thoughts on the future of the Open Access movement in New York. Brief lightning talks on successful METRO Wikipedia projects by Marek Zielinski, Megan Wacha, and other special guests will follow.
This event is open at no cost to METRO members and all those interested in attending.
