Our work together here should be our armor, not some sharp, angry, burning sword. I would strongly recommend that everyone here find an article to work on for a while; not the cliche "random article", but something that gives you a nice tug at the heartstrings. It feels great to be out there doing work on something you genuinely care about, and I assure you it'll help you regain the sense of why you're here.

My Wiki-bio, circa 2015, for an article about me by a journalist.

Professionally, I'm a software engineer. (That's a computer programmer that's more full of themselves.) I currently work for a company that makes software, after having worked for a company which knows everything except how to spell its name (I've been a Wikipedian longest). I've written most of a few articles about people from each.

I got to do this neat thing for the earlier one, which helps lots of people find free (as-in-speech) images, including those usable for this project. Using it and other tools I've found over 1,000 images to illustrate articles and put them on Wikimedia Commons. Here is my images to-do list.

Wikipedia:WikiProject Countering systemic biasEdit

This project tries to make up for the fact that most Wikipedia editors are technically savvy first world males.


Creationist museumsEdit

From an Articles for deletion discussion where I was challenged to create some articles to prove it could be done.

Not creationist museumEdit

James Jones Literary Society First Novel Fellowship authorsEdit

From another Articles for deletion discussion where the claim was made that winners of this award aren't notable. So far - well, as I look into it, some were, and some weren't. These are some that were. Also expanded article on the society and award.
