Better late than ever. Thanks Leila. Very insightful musings. Very curious to know more about incentivising African researchers re: Wikimedia projects. Currently finishing an Msc in Data Sci with Edinburgh. Also curating huge data assets and datasets on Malawi. Will follow Research.Wikimedia (and you) keenly.
