Autobiography?[edit]

The second-most prolific contributor to this article is User:Wenapoon, who may in fact be the subject of the article. The article's creator and most prolific contributor is an anonymous editor with an IP address in Austin, Texas. According to the aforementioned user page, that Wenapoon lives in Austin, Texas.

There is at least one reference to a reliable, independent source (CNN International), as well as several other presumably reliable sources (Steven 2013; various reviews), though I am not able to access them to verify that fact. The New York Times article does not appear to refer to Wena Poon, as far as I can see.

It seems to me that this article is probably an autobiography, but the subject might satisfy Wikipedia:Notability (people). I am not sure of notability, as the cited sources don't seem to suggest a major influence on the field but might add up to a body of work subject of multiple independent reviews (WP:AUTHOR #3). I'd like other editors to weigh in on the subject. Cnilep (talk) 04:14, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
