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…
My new @IEEESSP paper tries to map anonymity-seeking to types/quality of online participation by comparing @torproject users to other types of @Wikipedia contributors. The short version is that Tor users are pretty similar to other newbies and unregistered editors!
Our new paper suggests that contributors to @Wikipedia that slip past WP's block of @torproject are similar to other newbies and unregistered editors. The …

I'm quoted talking about knowledge equity in the @StanfordDaily@twitter.com for an article reflecting on @email@example.com's legacy and @JSTOR@twitter.com's decision to open things up—a little bit and temporarily—during the #COVID19 pandemic. https://www.stanforddaily.com/2020/03/27/remembering-aaron-swartzs-legacy-in-light-of-jstor-opening-access/

Like the FSF, I use republish my toots on birdsite too. I try to live in freedom but I also don't refuse to meet people where they are.

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
