How do you know you'd be blocked? That seems like a strange policy.


This information comes from our NASA coordinator of social media.

So, one suggestion that might help this issue is if Wikipedia had more entries about our data and tools.  For instance, there is no page on Precipitation Data (describing sources, types, etc.).  There is only a stub entry for Giovanni.

Turns out, though, that Wikipedia does not want NASA employees like me contributing.  They would actually block me if I tried to edit from a NASA machine.  So this kind of thing would need to be a community/private citizen effort....
