Wikipedian inside

February 25, 2021

The more you know a Wikipedian, the less, you realize, you know. I have always been impressed with Vassia Atanassova’s knowledge and passion in various areas, to name a few: Wikipedian, scientist, thinker, traveller …

Vassia is among the most rational people I have ever known and imagine my surprise when I accidentally discovered a blog on irrational basis, called Natural Blogorithm (written in Bulgarian) and it turned out to be hers. Photo courtesy: MyFuture.School
