It is with great pleasure that I welcome Erik Zachte as a part-time
contractor to the Wikimedia Foundation. Erik will start work with us
officially on September 1.
Fantastic news! Perhaps this is a good time to kickstart a set of pages on Meta to help facilitate other researchers in accessing and using data - both qualitative and quantitative? I'd also be very happy to set up a learning community on Wikiversity with this in mind... (cross-posted to wiki-research-l).
