A vida e morte de Marielle Franco na Wikipédia

Posted março 26, 2018 by Adele Vrana

Marielle Franco foi uma brasileira admirável. Negra, lésbica, mãe, jovem política e ativista dos direitos humanos. Infelizmente, foi somente o seu assassinato que finalmente fez Marielle notável o suficiente para ser incluída na Wikipédia. Mulheres inspiradoras como Marielle, merecem ser vistas em vida assim como são vistas após a morte.

Decolonizing the Internet conference

Posted fevereiro 27, 2018 by Anasuya Sengupta

We are hosting the first ever convening on centering marginalized knowledges online - in July 2018, Cape Town, South Africa! 75% of those online are from the global South, but hardly represented on the internet. We are bringing together community organizers, technologists, scholars, artists, Wikimedians and others, to build more awareness, allies, and joint action plans.
