    I enjoyed this text so much that I decided to adopt it for my Museum Education and Public Awareness course at the Institute of American Indian Arts, in Santa Fe, NM.

    Dear Nina,
    Loved your book and adore your work. Thank you. I am referring one of your case studies in one of the courses I teach at the university. One spelling error in chapter 8, the case study about Wikipedia loves art, should it be “Wikipedians” not with a “m” ?

  4. @Fan Ding: I thought the error was “wikipediams!” But no, Wikimedians is correct. They are volunteers who focus globally on the wikimedia community, which includes but is not limited to Wikipedia. Check out http://www.wikimedia.org/

    @Nina, forgot to mention, on the site of Wikipedia, they name all the users “Wikipeidans”. I perceived incorrectly.
