Moving to backlog for now. Purpose of the blog post will be more of a retrospective case study than a call for participation in the community prototype submissions.

First draft has been finished. It will be shared with a few people soon.

Actioned edits by proofreaders.
Cut down the blog post for publication in Diff by removing the section about HCI and readability

Still outstanding:

  • I need a graphic that visualizes the scope of Wikipedia reading
  • I need to understand how I should add citations and references to the blog
  • It needs a last pass before publication
  • I need help with the title, I think

Waiting to hear back from Movement Comms on this.

Still stalled on movement comms with this.

I have a separate task to re-write the blog post for the Design blog more based on the HCI literature, our community prototyping and the weirdness of doing desk research for Wikipedia. They are two different things now. Going to pop this back into doing, and focus it on that task.
