About the meetupEdit
This is intended to include any interested Wikimedians who find themselves in Edinburgh or can make their way to Edinburgh on the day. Anyone who has attended previous meetups in Glasgow or Edinburgh encouraged to return to meet new faces! It will be a social gathering for Wikimedia enthusiasts, where we...
- Drink coffee and/or beer and some of us have Sunday lunch.
- Chat about Wikipedia and any other topics we fancy.
Mainly a casual social event. You can expect to meet some very keen Wikipedians, however this is also an open invitation to anyone interested in finding out more about Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, projects re-using Wikipedia, and other collaborative wiki projects. Feel free to come along and raise these discussions over a beer. Alcohol consumption is optional.
The Malt Shovel Inn is mere minutes away from Edinburgh's Waverley station, which we hope will make this meet up more accessible for those who might wish to join from outside of Edinburgh. It serves food and drink from 12:30 on Sundays, and offers wifi. We will probably be booking a table to ensure we get a seat on the day but will need to call if the booking is for more than 8 people, so please do add your name if you hope to attend!
The Malt Shovel is located at 11-15 Cockburn St. Their website has an embedded map which will provide directions for both walking and driving.
We will most likely be buried in laptops, tablets, smartphones, and any other portable internet-accessible devices there might be. User:ACrockford will probably be wearing a Wikimedia UK shirt and there will likely be some other Wikimedia/Wikipedia logos about. Plus we will have booked the table so if you happen to be a bit early or a lot late you should be able to ask.
