- Gene from our oakland wants to be involved with Team OaklandWiki Geographers!
- What should the Team OaklandWiki Geographers team work on?
Need a nice fatty hella epic photo for the front page.
- Suggestion: use photosynth?
- Victoria is interested in organizing bike parties! If you would like to help organize a bike party, please email the list!
Bike party tasks:
- Set a date
- make an invite page, publicize, etc.
- Pick a theme/split the map into sections that we can assign to people
- Instructions? What should people take pictures of? What defines a landmark?
- pick an app/service - ushahidi?
- have everyone meet back up at sudo or other location where we will all upload the photos and have food. (*will also need instructions for how will people note what they're taking pictures of and where it is and easy instructions for uploading photos to wikimedia for people who have to leave!) **can also use http://i-am-cc.org

OPL Youth Leadership Council
- Gave a presentation on OakWiki at the monthly (third Sat. of every month) meeting of the OPL Youth Leadership Council.
- All of the youth were super interested in Oak Wiki and want to be more involved! We even got one youth who is interested in joining the Dev team.
- They would like us to come back and do a workshop on editing the wiki and brainstorming how to build the Youth Portal - may need a volunteer to do this!
