I doubt if we have anything to worry about -- or someone would be chasing after the entire MeetUp world. The article is very vague but my sense is that the state of CA is going after folks who claim to be "schools," who charge $$, and run courses with at least a pass/fail outcome and some concept of an earned certificate. That's a far cry from folks getting together from time to time to teach each other stuff.

All,

I read this article with some concern. Thoughts?

Of course, hackathons and editathons in the Wikimedia space are
typically offered for free, but I don't know from the article whether
that makes a difference. (The article doesn't have anything to say about
what "compliance" entails.)

Interested in learning more about what's going on here.
