WikiSeder Monday April 13

Pharos-3
I would like to invite everyone to join me in drinking four cups of wine to free knowledge, next Monday!


The WikiSeder is a secular celebration of wiki wisdom and free culture in the age of the quarantini. As we pass through our current plague, let us come together from our lockdowns to retell stories of liberation and crisis overcome through fellowship and information-sharing.

All are very welcome, this is not meant as a religious or exclusive thing. There is an American tradition since the 1960s of interfaith and secular seders highlighting social causes, and I hope WikiSeder can be in this tradition.

For content, it would be a sort of playful strategy session, mixed with some editathon arguments over holiday-related Wikidata items. We will probably also read aloud some Wikipedia article intros and talk pages for relevant topics, this is very much meant as the seder you can edit.

It is planned for Monday April 13, the sixth night of Passover, and also the day after Easter.

I'm thinking to do it 7pm Eastern, and maybe a regular WALRUS meeting at 9pm Eastern if people want to hang around for that.ย  You are encouraged to eat and drink during the event.

We'd do it as a livestream episode on the Wikipedia Weekly Network podcast, so it would be public and go on Youtube, etc:


Let me know if you are interested!

Thanks,
Richard

Anyone here, let me know if you'd like to be a guest at our virtual WikiSeder table 7pm Monday, and I'll share with you the link to appear on the livestream broadcast.

Also, bring any creativeย WikiSeder ideas you have,ย this is the holiday anyone can edit.

I'll schedule our WALRUS call for afterward, at 9pm (probably an abbreviated one).

Thanks,
Richard

Sounds like a great idea. Thanks for organizing this and the other WALRUS events during the national stay-at-home effort. 

Best,

Jackie
