My moment of fame as Wikipedia team leader captured for digital eternity

In 2010, I was recruited by a good friend and former colleague Peter Forsyth to co-lead a Wikipedia project about “screencasts.” That is the art of capturing a “How-to” on your computer’s screen as you go about ACTUALLY doing it. For about five days I was in San Francisco, and for most of those days I was at the Wikipedia offices. It was a very exciting for me and Wikipedia. Near the break room, they had a dry wipe board with a list of users who had come by the office. I remember how I felt when I wrote my name on the board, I was thrilled to be part of this project and Wikipedia in general. I simply took a picture of the board with my signature on it and then promptly forgot about it. However, I was delighted to find that that that day’s board was featured in a YouTube video.
