Oi pessoal!

O pessoal da WMF e grupos de pesquisa associados fazem um resumo
mensal de estudos em torno dos projetos Wikimedia. A versão de março
tem umas coisas interessantes, como um estudo do Erik Zatche sobre o
crescimento dos projetos ao longo do tempo. Recomendo a leitura.

Podemos publicar tópicos (traduzidos) de interesse para os projetos em
Português, é uma forma de inspirar coisas na Central de Pesquisas e de
melhorar a comunicação com outros voluntários. O que vocês acham?
