TALK:EBOLA virus epidemic in WEST AFRICA

Yesterday I was being interviewed on Sky News in the UK. The interview was supposed to be about a conference that I'm attending here in Dublin (One Young World) but took an unexpected (for me) turn into discussing ebola. The interviewer quite confidently challenged me on the importance of ebola with the claim that "only 4 people per day are dying of it". I was astonished and challenged back and she cited The Economist and insisted on the number and tried to move on. I stopped her right there and said look, if The Economist says that, then they are wrong. I said that people should come to this article and look at the table where we have a meticulous table with exact reference to the authoritative data. Later, on twitter, she appeared to be continuing to push the line by tweeting a screenshot of something from the Economist - dated early August. Sheesh.

Anyway, I was very proud to know that our article is very good, and that we are doing something that unfortunately talking heads on television can't or won't do: responsibly and thoughtfully working very hard to get high quality information out to the world. This journalist didn't turn to us, but we know that thousands of journalists do. Your work is meaningful to the world, and I thank you for it.--Jimbo Wales (talk) 09:10, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

You are to be commended for your tireless work on the Ebola virus epidemic in West Africa article.

Thank you so much for taking the initiative to tidy up the article on medullary cystic kidney disease. I did not expect such a rapid response from anyone. Though I've been on Wikipedia for quite a long time, I still consider myself a newbie, and so I'm still learning proper etiquette. Thanks man! NJ (talk) 01:08, 3 June 2016 (UTC)
