I wanted to spark more off-line activity amongst Paleo enthusiasts the world 'round and therefore have created a Meetup Everywhere page. Use it to self-organize and find Paleo folks near you and on July 8th 2010 have a great time.
No more pussy-footing around and talking about meeting up. Just 'effin do it.
So, will you be at Paleo Diet Meetups Everywhere on July 8th 2010?
Following up on some of your emails to me, I asked the friendly folks at Meetup.com about how one would go about associating an existing Meetup Group with Meetup Everywhere. Here is what Kathryn from Meetup had to say:
Psyched to see that you created a Meetup Everywhere for the Paleo Diet.
There's a great feature that enables organizers to associate events within an already existing Meetup Group to the corresponding Meetup on the Everywhere map. Feel free to pass these steps along to the organizers who asked you about this...
If you schedule a Meetup in your Group, you can plug the event's URL into the corresponding event you schedule in the Meetup Everywhere. Check it out! Go to http://www.meetup.com/paleodiet/event_create/ and you'll see a check box for "Should people also RSVP or register somewhere else?" You can plug in the URL for the Meetup within your Group, and then whenever people click 'I'm interested,' they'll be directed to your Group's Meetup page so they can also RSVP there. Conversely, Meetups within Groups can easily link to the Meetup Everywhere page in the event description to encourage activity there.
I hope that helps! Feel free to encourage your members with questions to write me at email@example.com.
