I am a graduate student at the MIT Media Lab and this summer I'm working on a Wiki related project that uses visualization to understand how Wiki pages evolve over time.

Because Wikipedia seems like such an interesting and thriving community, I would like to know whether any of you would be available to chat with me about how the community works and how consensus is achieved? 

Also, I would be very appreciative of any pointers you might have to other academic work being done on Wikipedia.

thanks a lot,
Fernanda Viegas
