Hello I'm a Wikipedian editor and administrator who lives in Jedburgh in Scotland. I've worked as an engineer, teacher, consultant, an information technologist, lecturer and manager. I've worked for Rolls-Royce. I have spoken and trained about Wikipedia in several countries from Norway to Israel and in Monmouth, Gibraltar, most Universities in the East Midlands, Edinburgh Uni and UCI.
I got mentioned in January 2019 in the Washington Post's story about Wikipedia coming of age because of Women in Red. I worked on the #wikiWomeninRed tweetfeed and their projects in general.
I was at the Monthly Women in Red meetings in Edinburgh. I was at #44 in January 2021 virtually. In October 2020 I completed trying to write an article a day for a year. I failed some days but I completed ~450 articles. My run of one every day started on 22 March 2020 as the first? UK lockdown started 456 days ago and lasted for ~360 days.
I was the 3rd Wikipedian in Residence (first British).[dead link] I co-founded QRpedia, Monmouthpedia and Women in Red. QRpedia is still used in Bremenpedia, Joburgpedia, Freopedia, Toodyaypedia and in education applications in Algeria. I was chair of WikimediaUK when it became a charity and gained its first staffed office. I've spoken about Wikipedia related projects in Israel, Europe, America and Africa. Noted editathon at the Pankhurst centre.
Many thanks for your support and a special gift baklava!
