Hackathon newsletter article draft


@Melina Masnatta (WMAR): @Anna Torres (WMAR):

Querida Melina,

Thank you so much for your contribution to the education newsletter! I love the title: "Educational hackathon about digital sources, big data, and Wikipedia". :)

My concern is that this article is very long. It is at least 3 times as long as all of the other articles. It stands out, and not necessarily in a good way. Because as readers scan or skim the page, they see relative consistency in article length, except for this one. It's an anomaly, and I'm afraid at that it won't get read in its entirety, given the tradition and expectation of typically concise submissions to this newsletter.

Please understand, it is really great content, and we should definitely include it! But a much shorter summary of it would be better, in my opinion.

I recommend that you create a subpage of Education/Countries/Argentina and link to that subpage in the newsletter article. That way those who want to learn more about the event can do so if they wish to. Both México and Bulgaria have created several subpages. This is helpful for bigger and more mature programs with much great programmatic work to document.

Melina, you should also consider writing a blog post about this later on. Big data is a compelling and timely topic.

Thank you again for this tremendous effort to document the hackathon and share your experiences with the global education program.

@Msannakoval: Dear Anna, I have just finished to edit the lenght of the article. I proposed it as a post in the WF´s blog but nobody published it. I´ll take care about your recommendations. Abrazos Melina Masnatta (WMAR) (talk)
