Checking that little box in the PCS is for @ACM_CSCW, @sigchi is nice too (ACs should use it!) but doesn't really replace the whole acknowledgement from another human thing.

I've sent email followups to acknowledge/thank folks who wrote really high-effort reviews/quality reviews for me as an AE/AC in the past and I've always been surprised by how much reviewers seem to appreciate this. I need to remember to do this more often.

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!

I'm quoted talking about knowledge equity in the for an article reflecting on's legacy and's decision to open things up—a little bit and temporarily—during the pandemic.

I'm finding's "Rise and Fall of the Note" dataviz on previous CSCW paper word lengths to be SO USEFUL in the part of reviewing where we are asked to decide if a paper's contribution is commensurate to its length.
