Category talk:Bloomington Expats

From Bloomingpedia

This category doesn't make much sense to me. An expat is someone who lives outside their native country. All of the people tagged, with the exception to Joshua Bell, are not native to Bloomington. I'm not even native to Indiana, and I'm tagged as an expat.

It would make more sense to tag people who are current residents. Every year, a great number of people come to Bloomington, and a gread number leave. It's a much smaller group who call it home on an ongoing basis. Jkonrath 19:58, 1 July 2007 (EDT)


The genesis of this category came from a conversation between Mark and myself commenting about the number of people editing Bloomingpedia even after they have left Bloomington. We found this interesting that people who have left still care enough about Bloomington to contribute to Bloomingpedia. I used the term Bloomington Expats rather than just Expats to indicate that they have just left Bloomington, not necessarily left the country. Just a thought from the two of us.
