    @enqueue_russ That’s why we do WordPress 101 days before WordCamp. So people attending the camp know what “The Dashboard” is before showing up to the camp.

    @HTCIndiana Not true. Starting a meetup is Administrative.

  16. Jason Tucker Avatar

    (thats not real btw..)

  17. Shawn Hooper Avatar

    @HTCIndiana Not at all! You can be the organizer without knowing WordPress in depth. Just coordinate, connect people, and you get to learn too.

  18. Verious Smith III Avatar

    @ShawnHooper ha ha! Absolutely!

  19. Adam Thomson Avatar

    ICQ!!! That takes me back.

    @bamadesigner Isn’t that kind of what we’re doing right now?

  29. Verious Smith III Avatar

    Dang The Innevation Center is Awesome!

  30. alex vasquez Avatar

    @htcindiana you either have to find a meetup group and talk to the organizers or get started with your own.

  31. Delores Steele Avatar

    @alexjvasquez I Think I’ll do that

  32. alex vasquez Avatar

    @htcindiana do which one?

  33. Rachel Carden Avatar

    A lot of WordCamps are being hosted by universities these days. Universities are usually really flexible to provide space, esp. if you know someone who works there.

  34. alex vasquez Avatar

    I’m going to hold you accountable.

  35. Bridget Willard Avatar

    @PappyOyler That happens

  36. alex vasquez Avatar

    @htcindiana I have appointed myself as your accountability partner

  37. Paul Oyler Avatar
