I remember, for a long time before I met her, wondering what “a wade wit” meant.
I remember a Skype conversation, years ago. Adrianne, Phoebe, SJ and I talked for probably three hours about the gender gap on Wikipedia, late into the night. Then and always, she was relentlessly thoughtful and incredibly sharp. As superb as she was in writing, she was even better in live conversation and debate.
I remember laughing and talking and laughing and talking at Wikimania 2012. I took this picture of her that she used for a long while as a profile pic. Someone on Facebook said it looked “skepchickal”, which she loved.
I remember her unfailing kindness and generosity, indomitable work ethic, and voracious appetite for knowledge. She made me proud to call myself a fellow Wikipedian.

Thank you Sage <3
I’ve been thinking about that skype call a lot lately, too. It was so unexpected and so natural — I didn’t really know her very well at all at that point, and there we were, talking and arguing half the night like we’d been doing it all our lives. Magical.
