Happy 10th Birthday, Meetup!

Can you believe Meetup is ten years old? It seems both like it’s been around longer and that it’s newer. Was it that long ago that I went to my first Meetup? And I still attend some gatherings and read group postings. Meetup is particularly awesome because of its ability to create and support communities online and face-to-face/in person.

I learned a ton about Wikipedia in its early days from the folks in the local Meetup group. Then I was able to share the wiki love with folks wondering what wikis are in the first place, let alone pondering some of Wikipedia’s complicated issues, like how do you trust the writings of the anonymous crowd.

Aaah, yes, those days were good ones. But I can’t wait for the future!
