ImpactEdit

  • The Chrome Book (PC) that was donated to me has changed the way i use the wikimedia projects and in my day to day life on these projects. Well for starters when i discovered the Chewa Wikipedia i don't think i would have been able to edit the homepage to the way its looking now if i was using my phone. The chrome book is efficient on data usage making me spend less on data. I have also been able to fully take part on wikidata one of my favorite projects and also able to upload images on commons which i was not able to do with my phone. And also I was introduced to Translatewiki.net that can't work on my phone and looking at the translations that i have been doing i dont think i would have had enough money to be visiting the internet cafe but as it stands now am doing it in the comfort of my home and at any given time. From wikimania, one of the connections i got, landed me on the international team for wiki loves love and the work am doing with wiki commons i dont think it would haved worked well with my phone but the Chrome gives me this unlimited workspace and in general the chrome book has just changed my playing field.
