* Amanda Menking: Doing a study on women's participation on Wikipedia. Put her in touch with Emily since their projects complement each other very well.
 
* Jethro (I JethroBT): "Reimagining Wikipedia Mentorship," changing how online training of Wikipedians happens. Wikimedia DC's activities should have a strong online complement, so this research is worth observing. We could also help with testing.
