OaklandWiki Edit Party : Oakland's Geography & its Neighborhoods
OaklandWiki is a community website about Oakland that anyone can contribute to. Oakland Public Library is hosting a series of neighborhood "edit parties" where Oakland Wiki volunteers will help people share what they know about Oakland (It's very easy - no computer experience necessary!) You can information such as what your neighborhood is like, your family's history and experience, cultural events and history, fun things to do or anything else you think other people should know about Oakland.
This session will take a particular interest in Oakland's often misrepresented geography: it's four directions (N-S-E-W), it's neighborhoods and what they're named and where they seem to be situated. Don't hesistate to come, though, if this is not what you want to share. Oakland Wiki wants to gather whatever it can about our city.
