Wikipedia is one of the most successful online communities in history, yet it struggles to attract and retain editors who are women -- another example of the gender gap online.In a recent University of Washington study, researchers interviewed women "Wikipedians" to examine the lack of female and non-binary editors in Wikipedia.The team identified a common theme: safety."If you're constantly getting negative feedback for doing something, how often are you going to do it?"The researchers presented their results May 9 at the 2019 ACM CHI conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems in Glasgow, Scotland.The team interviewed 25 well-established editors to find out their stories.

After two tests of Verizon's 5G network in Chicago and one in Dallas with Sprint, we're starting to see a picture of what kind of 5G speeds and services you can expect in the US.The results aren't anywhere near a conclusion that either network is "better."But the tests do indicate the trade-offs you might see the first time you use 5G, whenever that may be.However, Verizon is the largest US network by population coverage, while Sprint is currently fourth.However, Sprint's strong start with 5G makes it an attractive bargaining chip in the proposed merger between Sprint and T-Mobile.If the DOJ approves the merger, the newly strengthened T-Mobile will be in a strongly competitive position to take on Verizon and AT (which has a network for 5G hotspots but has not yet invited journalists to publicly field test them.)

Many officials claim that governments should regulate Facebook and other social platforms, but few describe what it actually means.A few days ago, France released a report that outlines what France — and maybe the European Union — plans to do when it comes to content moderation.It’s an insightful 34-page document with a nuanced take on toxic content and how to deal with it.There are some brand new ideas in the report that are worth exploring.Instead of moderating content directly, the regulator in charge of social networks would tell Facebook and other social networks a list of objectives.For instance, if a racist photo goes viral and is distributed to 5 percent of monthly active users in France, you could consider that the social network has failed to fulfill its obligations.
