Comment (by iandunn):

 I like this idea.

 I wonder if a link would fit in better than a button? cc @mapk

 I think it'd be better to link to https://make.wordpress.org/community
 /meetups-landing-page (like the Core Events widget does), rather than
 directly to meetup.com, since that'd give us more flexibility and DRYness.
 See https://github.com/coreymckrill/nearby-wordpress-events/issues/9 for

 Although, I wonder if it'd be better to just say something like,
 "Interested in joining the community? Just login to wp-admin on your site
 and enter your location in the WordPress Events and News widget."

 That might be better long-term, since they'd see it regularly instead of
 just once when they manually look for it. It'd also include WordCamps in
 addition to meetups. It might be best to avoid using the word "widget",
 since that might confuse people into looking in at `Appearance > Widgets`
 instead of the Dashboard.
