Wiki-Workshop (2-4pm)[edit]

New Wikipedians soak up information at the instruction session at the Brooklyn Public Library, March 10, 2013

Meeting at the Brooklyn Public Library's newly opened 'Info Commons Lab', which is an awesome new space on the first floor dedicated to collaborative freeculture-ish activities.

  • Location: Brooklyn Public Library Central Branch, 10 Grand Army Plaza (by Flatbush Ave & Eastern Pkwy)
  • Time: 2-4pm

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

Wiki-Dinner (5pm-whenever)[edit]

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.)

Afterward, we have the option to continue things boozily at The Way Station, Brooklyn's leading steampunk/TARDIS bar.

  • not sure. --Steve, Sm8900 (talk) 15:01, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
  • 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)
  • T. Canens (talk) 18:39, 8 March 2013 (UTC)
  • Sadly, nowhere near the city this weekend, this would have been fun. Courcelles 01:55, 10 March 2013 (UTC)
  • ~ Dogears (talk) 18:49, 10 March 2013 (UTC) Good program 'o events today, enjoy. Hope to get to a meetup soon.
