Call to Indian Wikipedians
- On Friday, Jimmy "Jimbo" Wales met up with a bunch of indian Wikipedia
editors in Bangalore.
Jimbo was very involving, focussing on Indian Language wikipedias, and
brainstorming on how we could extend these. Recognising that awareness is
half the problem, I invited the Indian Wikipedia community to participate
at FOSS.IN/2006, and have offered them free expo space, with connectivity,
computers, etc. that they may require to highlight their work. I have also
invited them to submit talks on the subject.
Wikipedia is about as FOSS as a project can get, so it is dead in line
with the objectives of FOSS.IN. Please spread the word to other Indian
Wikipedia editors (*especially* Indian language wikipedia editors), and
get them to participate. I am reserving stalls, conectivity, machines and
anything else needed for this.
