Happy Birthday Wikitravel[edit]

Today is the 1-year anniversary of Wikitravel. The first edit to a Wikitravel page happened on July 24, 2003. This year Wikitravel has seen a lot of success:

  • Three language versions (English, Romanian, and French), with more on the way
  • Over two thousand articles in the English version; nearly three thousand overall
  • Over 750 registered users in English; almost a thousand overall
  • Press coverage in the New York Times, BBC, CBC, and elsewhere

Wikitravellers old and new should feel some pride for these accomplishments. It will be interesting to see what milestones we'll be looking back on for our 2nd birthday in 2005.

Bay Area meetup August 16, 2004[edit]

Maj and Evan will be in the San Francisco Bay Area for the month of August. It'd be great to do a Bay Area meetup on the Wikitravel Meetup day for that month (August 16). Wikitravellers who haven't already signed up for http://wikitravel.meetup.com/ should sign up there for a meeting.
