I'm Peter Benjamin Meyer. I'm in this chapter. I'm a candidate for the Wiki-DC board of directors in the Feb/March 2013 election. Here are my candidacy statements. I'd welcome feedback about the chapter.

My regular user page is on the English Wikipedia.

  • list of verified users on this wiki (generally authorized people, not robots)
  • /Glossary for Wiki-DC
  • Wiki DC committed to advocating for Internet freedom (along the SOPA/PIPA issue line) and has some budget capacity for this. contact person at Lofgren's office is senior legislative counsel: harley.geiger at ; 225-3072.
  • It is conceivable that Wiki DC could get a federal contract ; e.g. for a Wikimedian in residence or a NARA project. These are longshots.
