Repeated mentions at ACM CFP-2006
Three users - Raul654, Mindspillage, and Sj - represented Wikimedia at Friday's session of the ACM CFP-2006 conference. Several speakers - notably EFF lawyer Mike Godwin and science fiction author Vernor Vinge - spoke in glowing terms of Wikipedia. (Vinge later said the plenary session discussing Wikipedia was one of the highlights of the conference for him.)
Mr. Vinge also passed along a request for a certain feature (a sort of "Wayback Wikipedia" where it would be possible to view all articles on Wikipedia as they existed at a certain point in time) and Mindspillage dutifully filed the request for him.
