Yes, I'd be interested in meeting up for a meetup/hackday.  I'm currently an Outreach Program for Women intern for the QA automation team at Wikmedia, so I could hack on one of our QA tests, and I can show others how we are automating our tests these days.  It's a pretty cool setup using Cucumber/Ruby/Selenium, and volunteers might be interested in learning the tools  and helping out with one of the tests.

I've asked Adam Hyland, a Boston wikipedian who works at the swank
software-house Bocoup, if they might have space we could use in their
demesne that week.

You would also all be welcome at the Berkman Center - I could find a
room for us all in the new Wasserstein building at Harvard -- more
academic, less startup-culture.  (more people hacking on annotation

Either way, I'd be glad to spend those weekdays in a shared space. And
other Wikimedians would be welcome to come by and spend time with us.
