So three of us were sitting in Teviot Row House, Edinburgh University Students Association having some drinks after the Wikimedia UK board meeting. Outside the door of the room was one of those pull up stands with an old Wikipedia globe image, and in walks this young student chap and asks what the Wikipedia sign is all about. We explain the situation.
“So you guys are Wikipedia?” he asks on the point of incredulity. Well, no and we have another go at explaining what Wikimedia UK does. He’s having none of that. “I can’t tell you how much you guys have saved me on textbooks…you guys are awesome”. He smiles, we thank him: and it’s beautiful.
