Anyone can edit Wikipedia—but less than 10 percent of people who actually do edit the world's largest encyclopedia are women. At this event, people of all genders can learn how to edit Wikipedia for the very first time or put their existing open source skills to use in the company of nerdy friends. Also featured: delicious cookies!
We'll be focusing on adding and improving the entries for queer and feminist artists and writers. Have someone in mind whose Wikipedia entry you'd like to work on!
If you're coming, try to bring a laptop. There are also a couple computers at the IPRC we can use.
Hosted by Sarah Mirk and RECESS, with much-appreciated editing help from Jason Moore, as part of the OROR art and technology festival. Hopefully some of the fine people attending XOXO Festival will come, too!
