Nice writeup by the @torproject of some recent work I've been doing on Tor users contributing to @Wikipedia. The two papers described were led by @kaylea and Chau Tran!
Wikipedia has tried to block Tor users since 2007, alleging vandalism, spam, and abuse. New research tells a different story: people use Tor to make high-quality contributions to Wikipedia, often to topics like politics, technology, and religion. https…
Woohoo! @jdfoote got @ICA_CAT's dissertation award! I feel super honored to server on @jdfoote's committee and know what the selection committee saw. Jeremy did *great* work. Thanks for making @comdatasci look good, Jeremy!

I'm finding @firstname.lastname@example.org's "Rise and Fall of the Note" dataviz on previous CSCW paper word lengths to be SO USEFUL in the part of @ACM_CSCW@twitter.com reviewing where we are asked to decide if a paper's contribution is commensurate to its length. https://doi.org/10.1145/33593241

The analysis is built around a series of Bayesian regression models at different stages of user experience that we used to unpack the way that the relationships between gender/feedback and sharing/participation look very different among less/more experienced users.
One important takeaway hidden by looking only at overall averages is that although boys are more likely to share the the projects they create initially, the reverse is true among more experienced users!
Check out my new paper documents how online collaboration platforms imagine anonymous users in ways that are strikingly differently than anonymous users see themselves. Paper was led by Nora McDonald w/ Rachel Greenstadt and Andrea Forte. #CHI2019 https://blog.communitydata.science/new-research-on-how-anonymity-is-perceived-in-open-collaboration/
To help you make your scientific study #exceedinglyreproducible, my student Jeremy Foote has published software to make PDF flipbooks of your lab meetings for deposition into your university's institutional archives. https://blog.communitydata.cc/exceedingly-reproducible-research/
