Philadelphia Meetup

This weekend, there will be a meetup in Philadelphia for interested Wikimedians. Details are located at Wikipedia. The meetup will start on March 15th at 3PM at Drexel University.

This isn't just a normal meetup, it's the first meetup of Philadelphia Wikimedians as part of the new Wikimedia New York chapter. The Philadelphia area is part of the NYC chapter, and there is the potential for us to create our own regional committee to get Philadelphians involved in the chapter's activities. This is quite a cool opportunity, and I look forward to seeing a lot of our local friends attend.

In other chapters news, there has been some scattered talk about a Mexico chapter forming, and a few communications have even come in to the Chapcom. If you are from Mexico and know anything about this effort or have any thoughts about it, I would love to hear from you. Send me an email or leave a comment here on this blog with any information.
