I first worked with hypertext in 1992 and have been writing wiki type stuff for twenty-one years, originally on h2g2 and now in the wikipedia universe.

I see Wikipedia as a garden and myself a gardener, finding interesting articles to plant, tending others and getting the satisfaction of watching them grow and bloom.

The most poisonous thing in the Wikipedia garden is a small minority of the admins that are quick to kill an imperfect article or edit rather than help it along. It's the same thing that halted the momentum of H2G2 will people never learn from history?

I saw that (at the end of 2020) in total across all the wikipedia products so far I have made over 25,000 edits, all of the manually (I really should learn to program tools/bots!)


Latest projectEdit

I would like to record the audio for some Wikipedia pages, its not that obvious end-to-end how to do it

I had an aim is to help with wikis English bias by initiating translation of good articals into English, but ran into deletionists

I would also like to learn to program wikibots

Random thoughtsEdit

I can feel the heartbeat of the world gently drumming on my soul.

The past can be a weapon and whilst you treat it that way, to a happy future, never will we stray.

See it, do it, done it. [1]
