Attendees at September's GLAM Café were sad to say good-bye to organizer Jeff Guin, who is leaving the Chemical Heritage Foundation for the Wolfsonian in Miami Beach, Florida. The GLAM Café will continue to be hosted by co-organizer Mary Mark Ockerbloom, Wikipedian in Residence at CHF. The next GLAM Café will be held Tuesday October 14, from 5 to 8 p.m. Wikipedians can celebrate Ada Lovelace Day by editing information about woman scientists!
September and early October saw a number of Wikipedia events in New York, with several more recently added to the fall and winter schedule.
