June 6, 2013 in Meetups, San Francisco

Following this event, Matt Senate of @PLOS blogged on their Recipe for a Good Event. It’s recommended reading when hosting a popular meetup.

I started open notes for the event at http://okfnpad.org/20130606sf. Below the following Meetup.com embed, I have published select tweets, photos, and other reports from #okfSF and other media. You can also check out our recap of the #okfSF meetup from March 2013.
