    after the Piratepad began having difficulties, it was not easy to find an article ready for editing or someone willing to work as a team.

    none of these gigs in the past were outta work when playtime came.
    this won't be any different.
    :o)
    know of an article ready for editing?

    You don't have to be an expert! We'll all learn!
    FYI I have some work to do related to this exposition but not its artists. I'll bring that along and may be distracted into using it.

    ok - in my excitement - i neglected to ask if I need to be an expert in American Artists of World's Columbian Exposition. I have done GLAM editing at the World Digital Library and was not the expert to make the edits. If I need to have subject matter expertise for this editathon, please let me know.

    Oh, shoot. I just RSVP'ed "yes", but then realized it's during work hours, so I won't be able to make it. Thanks to the shutdown, I'm about 20 hours in the hole on vacation time. :(

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
