Inkshares Book Contest (Currently in First!) & The Story I Wish I'd Written
Exciting News on a Saturday Afternoon
Last week, I entered my novel Infodemic into a contest through Inkshares. The book tells the story of an "unlikely group of volunteers who must race to defend the world’s most popular online encyclopedia against malicious disinformation during a global pandemic."
The book is currently in first place in the Inkshares contest, which is based on reader engagement. The winning novel will be published and considered for potential TV/film development. 😃
Could do me a favor and "follow" the book at the link below, and consider preordering a copy?

You can also preview the first five chapters for free. Thanks very much to everyone who has supported so far!
A Story I Wish I'd Written
My colleague Mark Kaufman wrote a story for Mashable on "The guardians of Wikipedia's climate change page." One contributor invested 90 hours and read through 3,000 pages of scientific literature to rewrite just one section of Wikipedia's climate change article. Kaufman's story is definitely worth reading to learn more about these vigilant keepers of truth.
