Blog by Sumana Harihareswara, Changeset founder
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2011 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
At some point this week I hope to post more about the MediaWiki hackathon I just led. Right now I am exhausted and .... too tired and distracted to even effectively finish that sentence, evidently.
People got a lot done, collaborators who had never met before got to see each other face-to-face, and we did not break any of the physical plant lent to us by our hosts (e.g., chairs or projector cables). Weak huzzah (weakened by hunger). Off to the airport again.
