to support new work to understand the relationship between community lifecycles and governance in a range of digital public goods. I'm excited, grateful, daunted, and grateful. Here's my department's writeup: com.uw.edu/post/benjamin-mako-

In addition a bunch of new research and teaching related to (Wikimedia and Wikia/Fandom), /#opensource, and Reddit, I'm particularly psyched about funds to support new outreach and community-building from my research group w/ companies, non-profits, and more.

So many to thank! The proposal is a direct result of my year attempting to think big at CASBS at Stanford
as well as feedback from folks in the Community Data Science Collective (especially @aaronshaw), Clark Bernier, @margaretlevi..activitypub.actor, and many others.
