Wow, thanks for sharing Sailesh! It's exciting to see such a collaboration with a newspaper on this topic, and to involve journalists in the writing process.
I'm really curious to how you came to work together, and hope you'll share a bit more for learning purposes on that. Will this collaboration focus on the newspaper as employer of potential Wikipedians, or will there also be an effort down the line to encourage the readers to follow the example? Exciting!
