I write this sitting in a mostly-empty auditorium, the technical checks for David Wiley’s virtual keynote completed, hoping things go smoothly, as I’m the putative moderator on this end. I’m looking forward to hearing what David has to say for a number of reasons, not least of which is that I have been reusing a version of the talk he gave last year in Vancouver ever since, and I could use some fresh material.
And wrapping up the day it will be my privilege to co-present with Jon Beasley-Murray and Wyeth Wasserman for a session entitled Academic Adventures in Wikipedia. Both these guys have done some very impressive work with their students, and I’m very excited about the session.
As an aside, I finally broke through my diffidence and started my first Wikipedia article yesterday, made a few other signed edits as well… but that’s another blog post.
