A few months ago, I wrote about a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon workshop at the UCR Library on the CDH and HGSA websites. From these posts I was approached by Amy Tyson of the National Council on Public History’s History@Work blog. Amy covers the “In the Academy” section and she asked if I’d write about my experience at the workshop, which I happily agreed to. As it turned out, I also attended a THATCamp with a Wikipedia component, and I included that in my article as well.
My post, “Editing in public: Online identity and the Wikipedia Edit-a-thon,” is now live on the Public History Commons website.
