Dear Tinu, from what I understand, an earlier Wikimeetup happened at Kolkata more than a year ago in Joka. I was informed of this by a participant at that earlier event who had expressed inability in attending the current meetup on the relevant page. I met her at a conference in Bangalore recently and got to know this. We may want to exercise caution in branding events as the first meet-up etc., "meet-up" should suffice.
Regards, Srinivas Gunta. ________________________________ From: CherianTinu Abraham <tinucher...@gmail.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Sent: Tue, 14 December, 2010 7:03:13 PM Subject: [Wikimediaindia-l] Wikipedia Wikimeetup1 @ Kolkata, Dec 2010 Photos Wikipedia Wikimeetup1 @ Kolkata, Dec 2010 Photos http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Kolkata_Meetup_Dec2010 There were around 18+ attendees for the first Wikimeetup @Kolkata .
