Broad Universe Wikipedia Project – a signal boost

I think this will be relevant to the interests of several of the people who read my blog.

Women artists made a concerted effort recently to get more of them written into history. More people turn to Wikipedia than to any other source. Women are still largely missing unless they are the few really big names in history…
Only 2% of the users edit Wikipedia. A huge percentage of them are male. And as time goes on fewer people are doing any editing, so diversity is bound to be an issue.

Weight loss blog: I’m not talking to my scale.

Stayed well within points all week. Ate veggies, drank plenty of fluids, went to the gym three times. I’m being healthy and proper and everything.

I am not currently on speaking terms with my scale.

We’ll see if I am again in a couple days.
