Date Activity Was Created: 
June 26, 2013
Target Completion Date: 
May 1, 2015
Goal statement: 
I've written guidelines on how to write a Wikipedia biography with the intent to get more pages up on notable women in computing, and also to get more women writing Wikipedia pages (they are mostly written by men). I've also created a spreadsheet of notable women in computing (about 300 women) and the status of their Wikipedia page (whether they have one and if so, if it needs work) I'm looking for volunteers to help me write such pages and help with the status of women's pages.

Progress On Activity: 
Have completed the guidelines.  Looking for people to try them out and write Wikipedia pages on Notable women in computing.
Lessons Learned: 
It is easy to edit a Wikipedia page for a small update, but very difficult to write a new page that has no errors on it.
