“Wikipedia Takes Manhattan” Free Culture NYC meet-up

Timothy Vollmer, March 26th, 2008

NYC affiliates, check out this awesome free culture photography scavenger hunt being put on by Free Culture @ NYU and Free Culture @ Columbia.

Each member of the winning team will receive an iPod shuffle loaded with Creative Commons music! Second and third place teams will win copies of “Wikipedia, The Missing Manual” donated by O’Reilly.

All photos will be uploaded to the Wikimedia Commons for inclusion into Wikipedia articles about NYC that need photos. We’ve got hundreds of locations, sites, and things to document for Wikipedia and it should be a really fun day.

The event will be held Friday, March 28 (April 4 is rain date). See the announcement here.
