The March 2013 New York City Meetup event was held on Sunday March 10 in Brooklyn, and included both a Wiki-Workshop at the Brooklyn Public Library's pioneering new Info Commons Lab and a Wiki-Dinner in the same neighborhood.

This section will include a Wiki-Workshop to help introduce newbies to writing on Wikipedia, and also a Wiki-edit-a-thon sprint to improve Brooklyn and NYC free content on Wikipedia and the hyperlocal NYCwiki.org.

The traditional food-and-chatting customs of the "wiki-meetup", with hearty provisions and strong opinions shared by all.
(We might alter the location of Wiki-Dinner, depending on the general consensus of the group at the library, this page will be edited to reflect any change.)

- Will be in the neighborhood tonight, may end up staying the night in which case I will come, otherwise the chances are slim. Mar2194 (talk) 20:08, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
- Thomas Craven (talk) 08:49, 5 March 2013 (UTC) Massive regrets, as this looks like both exactly the kind of Wiki event I'm looking for and an awesome excuse to try out that cool new space at BPL! Unfortunately I'm travelling in Asia for work this week and next and will be flying from Seoul to Taipei on the 10th. Next month, I hope!
- Out of town this weekend. I hope to get to an event soon. Newyorkbrad (talk) 16:12, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
