'''Monday Meets''' are weekly PortlandWiki "edit parties" that are free, open to everyone, and casual. They're a great chance to meet the diverse group of people who edit PortlandWiki and experience the fun of collaborating in person on a wiki. There are always friendly wiki experts willing to lend a hand and answer questions. You can stay for as long as you want, work on anything you want (or just shoot the breeze), and wear anything you want (though the venues will probably frown on complete nudity). All you need is a laptop (or nothing if you just want to hang out and chat).
