Portland WikiWednesday, you’re invited (tonight)

The gang at AboutUs is hosting a WikiWednesday. Today. At 6:30 PM.

On short notice, the AboutUs team is partnering with some Portland, Oregon area wiki enthusiasts for a WikiWednesday event also tomorrow at 6:30. The event will be held at the new AboutUs office at 107 SE Washington St, Suite 520, Portland OR 97214. We’re planning on having the usual social meetup fair with the hopes of organizing a BarnRaising to build out some articles for WikiHow.com — a cool wiki that’s a source of “how-to” information. If you’re in the Portland area you’re warmly invited to drop by and join in the fun. We’ll also try to monitor the AboutUs IRC channel at irc://irc.freenode.net/WikiWednesdayPortland so that people in other locations can maybe “drop by” as well.

Sorry for the last minute notice, but I just stumbled upon it myself.

AboutUs expands into new space

AboutUs, the Portland-based Wikipedia of business listings, has relocated its office, moving to a larger space in industrial Southeast Portland. The Olympic Mill, to be exact. Or the OMCC, as the cool kids like to say.

Need to drop by? Here’s the address:

For anyone needing to send us mail, cookies or other care packages at the new space, the address is: 107 SE Washington #520, Portland, OR 97214

AboutUs is a wiki whose goal is to create a free and valuable Internet resource containing information both about websites and other community created topics. The site was pre-populated with information about many different websites and thousands of updates are now being made by people each day.
