Exploring Tourette's through Wikicompulsion

As noted in today's SignpostMichaelas10, a former Wikipedia admin with mild Tourette's, shared a private and remarkable aspect of his life as a Wikipedian a few years ago, and what it helped him discover about himself.

It is a lovely vignette, one I will remember for some time to come.


  1. Wikilinks apparently don't work from Blogger ;-). The first link looks like it should be http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Signpost/2011-07-04/In_the_news - but there's nothing there about Michaelas10 or Tourette's.

  2. Thanks for the linkfix! It's noted there, though neither he nor Tourette's is mentioned by name. Search for 'Reddit'.
