The Wiki Research Hackathon is an opportunity for anyone interested in
research on Wikipedia, wikis, and other open collaborations to meet,
share ideas, and work together. Whether or not you consider yourself a
researcher, come with questions, answers, data, code, crazy ideas... or
just your insatiable curiosity.
People will be working on attributing credit to authors of wiki content,
screening medicine articles for quality, analyzing first edits for male
and female newcomers, and more. Join them or work on your own idea!
We're meeting at the Impact Hub in Philly and connecting online with
other groups around the world.
On August 6th, join us online, meet other researchers, and get set up to
access any data that you might need (optional).
