On Monday, May 30th (TOMORROW), at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear 
Tomer Ashur talk about

How to Spread Knowledge Throughout the World While Wearing Only Your 
Slippers (or Wikimedia, Wikipedia and free content projects)


Since its first emergence in 2001, Wikipedia had grown drastically to 
become the fifth most viewed website over the Internet in 2012. With 
over 12,000,000 articles in more than 250 languages this is now the 
largest source of information ever existed. The Wikimedia foundation has 
been founded in 2003 as a non-profit organization to support Wikipedia 
as well as other online and offline free content projects.

In this talk I will present Wikipedia and other projects of the 
Wikimedia foundation and how they work. I will show how one can become a 
Wikipedia editor and why would she want to do so. We will talk about 
readers, editors, Neutrality, reliability, dispute resolution, style and 
free content.


We meet in Taub (CS Faculty) building, room 6. For instructions see: 

Attendance is free, and you are all invited!
