To Wikipedians in Colorado, and allied communities involved with
OpenStreetMap, Linux and other open source software, Ushahidi, etc:
Wikipedia is celebrating its 10th anniversary on Saturday, Jan 15
Wikipedia is much more than an encyclopedia; it's a volunteer movement
of hundreds of thousands of everyday people from all corners of the
world. We're committed to providing free knowledge to people who need
it. To date, we have produced over 17 million articles in 270
languages. We're the 5th most popular website in the world with over
400 million unique visitors every month. And we want your help!
A lot of effort is being put into this anniversary worldwide, so this
is an ideal opportunity to get the message out, expand the base of
contributors, and do our part hosting some fun local celebrations.
At least one local event is already set up, on Jan 15th, in Boulder
from 11:00 to 1:00:
We'll be getting t-shirts and other give-aways from the Wikimedia
Foundation. So come and share in the diversity and energy of the
Wikipedia community. Be bold and "Edit this Event" to add your own
ideas for how we can celebrate.
Some ideas and stories are gathered here:
