Wiki Wednesdays are events for people interested and excited about Wiki software and the communities that use it. People get together to chat, learn about wikis, find jobs, talk deals and generally cavort. Wiki Wednesdays in Portland, Oregon are generally held the first Wednesday of each month. Everyone, from the expert to the merely curious, are welcome.

Additional Ideas for Venues

- Teresa Boze

GreenDragon Pub and Bistro | 928 SE 9th Ave | Portland, OR 97214
Don't be daunted by the purported noise level in the reviews. There is a room that is dinning oriented on the south side of the building. It has bench, table and a bay window view seating of the brewery. This room would suit us any week day evening. Families go in and out all evening with children. There are high chairs, games and chalk. WiFi is Personnel Telco and reliable. Adequate wall plugs. Beer and Blog has met there for three years; the website has a picture of the space.
The PDX11 Knowledge Network group is working on the needs for space for all the "hacker" community groups.
It could behoove us to make contact for our needs, as one of the outcomes ePDX has included WikiWednesday as an acknowledged tech | geek | hack community. Take note that Friday, April 1, 2011 at the PDX11 Hackathon and Unconference Portland State University | 1930 SW Fourth Avenue | Portland, OR 97201, there is a Hackathon WikiWednesday might want to be part of as it blends well with the current needs work on the Portland wiki.
