On Sunday, January 14, the NYC Wikipedia+free culture community will celebrate its annual mini conference and celebration. At this event last January, Tim Wu spoke with Noam Cohen, from the New York Times, and Katherine Maher, executive director of the Wikimedia Foundation, on a thought provoking panel about the state of the internet and journalism. This year, confirmed speakers so far include Jessie Daniels, who will take part in a discussion on online harassment, and Jason Scott, from the Internet Archive.
There will be a number of students, librarians, and faculty from the CUNY universe participating and presenting on classroom and archival Wikipedia projects, including those from LaGuardia Community College, Baruch, and Macauley Honors College.
Please stop by for some or all of this year’s Wikipedia Day! It is free and open to all. There will be cake.
