Turns out, Alexa can’t tell us much about the Barnes. Her worldview is limited to the first blurb of a Wikipedia page, so when you ask her “What is the Barnes Foundation?” she responds with “The Barnes Foundation is an American educational art and horticultural institution with locations in Lower Merion, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Philadelphia…” That’s right, Alexa still thinks the Barnes is in Merion because she doesn’t continue to read the rest of that sentence which goes on to give our current location. So, note to self — now our Wikipedia entries need to be both accurate and carefully composed, so that first blurb can stand alone without additional context.
What can Alexa teach us about the Barnes?

Interesting new issue for #GLAMwiki projects to be aware of…

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
