[liberationtech] Article Specific Censorship of Wikipedia Across Countries

Last month Xia Chu (@summer.agony) shared an evaluation and dataset on the
Great Firewall of China on the list [1], which really warrants attention
for its thoroughness. It far exceeds the work that I released this week on
Iran, called "{{Citation Filtered}}" [2], (which has been in production for
a few months -- scooped!). However, both demonstrate the opportunity to
aggregate data on censorship through Wikipedia, and Citation Filtered's
data collection was based on a custom OONI plugin that can be extended
elsewhere [3]. China and Iran are clearly not the only countries that
censor Wikipedia, so I wanted to send a note to everyone here to request
suggestions for other countries or invite partnerships on extending this
sort of research.
