Date and time: Sunday 14 February 2021 13:00—18:00
(join at any time you can, no need to stay for the whole afternoon)
We will use Zoom video chat, the link is below. the wub will host.
Note that we're using video conferencing, but there's no obligation to have your camera on if you prefer not to show your face. Or indeed your microphone: some people do just come along and listen in.
Although this meetup is a continuation of the regular "London" pub gatherings, going virtual means that geography is no longer a constraint so do feel free to join from anywhere you may be, in the UK or elsewhere!
Please invite any Wikimedia people you know (or have had wiki dealings with) who might be interested – spread the word!
