I'm Sumana Harihareswara. This is my personal account for personal editing; if I edited in my capacity as a Wikimedia Foundation staffer, I was User:Sharihareswara (WMF). (I no longer work at WMF; I worked there from early 2011 till 30 September 2014.)
I'm (slowly) working to get the Hari Kondabolu article to Good Article status -- see User:Sumanah/Hari Kondabolu draftspace. I like to improve coverage of women in open source software, like Lorinda Cherry and Jane Silber, as well as political figures, such as Tulsi Gabbard (the first Hindu in the US Congress). And I'm mildly interested in creating an article for Sheryl E. Gordon, an Alabama National Guard leader (Alabama's first female Major General). I also do bits of cleanup and cite-adding here and there.
I gave the speech "Hospitality, Jerks, and What I Learned" at Wiki Conference USA in 2014.
