Lane Rasberry’s journey with the Wikimedia movement has been almost a decade. Currently, Lane is the Wikimedia-in-Residence at the Data Science Institute of the University of Virginia. Lane has also been involved with a good number of studies related to the impact of Wikipedia projects in the academic sector. In 2013, Lane visited Bangladesh, so his attachment with the Bengali projects is old as well!
After getting the request for an interview with WikiBarta back in Wikimania 2019, Lane immediately agreed. After a prolonged break, in this joyful moment of Bangla Wikipedia, WikiBarta conducted the interview with Lane Rasberry. Here Lane expressed his views and thoughts regarding the Wikimedia movement worldwide. By Ankan Ghosh Dastider.
