We've had a number of online Appropedia Jams, and some in person in Arcata.
For the time being, the online jams are not being held. If you'd like to organize and promote the jams, please leave a message at User talk:Chriswaterguy.
This is a monthly editing "jam" with internet chat - we get together online (and in person where possible) and edit articles, help each other out, ask and answer questions, and talk about Appropedia. As this is new, we may try out different chat tools, so check here for details each month. You can also join the Appropedia Working Group to help with planning.
