Look for a group of geeky-looking folks with laptops. (Sometimes there's lots to choose from!) For folks who don't recognize the "regulars," we don't yet have a great way for you to find us but we're usually at a table near the electrical outlets. Just ask any geeky people at any geeky looking table if they're there to "wrangle their wikis."

OMG!! PortlandWiki's "Weekly Wiki Workouts" are always lotsa fun!!!

PortlandWiki's weekly "edit parties" are free, open to everyone, and casual. They're a great chance to meet the diverse group of people who edit PortlandWiki and experience the fun of collaborating in person on a wiki. There are always friendly wiki experts willing to lend a hand and answer questions. Participation is casual, you can pick a topic to write about if you want, or you can just chat with some wiki geeks over some food and drinks.

Monday Meets

WikiWednesdays

See the WikiWednesday page for details.

Can't find the right tent?

Ask the folks in the camp Library. The Occupy Portland Library is located in the Lownsdale Square encampment.

Can't Make the Meetings?

If the days or times don't work out for you but you're curious about meeting work and discussions, check out Meetup Notes.

Expanding Meetup Options

If PortlandWiki's current meetup days don't work for your schedule, consider starting your own PortlandWiki meetup on a different day or time. Feel free to post your PortlandWiki meetup schedule here or start a new page!

Since PortlandWiki's inception a small group of PortlandWiki administrators and other interested people have gathered each Monday in a meetup we've called our "Monday Meets." As PortlandWiki continues to expand and bring in new contributors, it's become apparent that also expanding meetup options is an increasingly good idea. We've also recognized that adding additional venues is also necessary.

Name ideas for alternate meetups.
