Ongoing Wikipedia Activity[edit]

Featured Articles[edit]

  1. Featured article The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. - With the exception of a few sentences, I researched and wrote this entire article, which was in bad shape when I found it.

Pending Wikipedia Projects[edit]

Current projects[edit]

  • Camera - a vital article that I've been working on for a while, when I have time.
  • Jeffrey Boam - My current "project". I'm getting this one researched, written, sourced, and up to a quality that Boam deserves (notable screenwriter and co-creator of Brisco).
  • Westchester Community College - another major project. I love the historical digging I've got to do for this one. Musty newspapers, deep database searches, and lots of the New York Times.
  • Rob Bowman - Great tv director. I've been building this article bit by bit. Most recently I acquired some pro photographs for the commons.
  • Kim Manners - notable director of Brisco and X-Files
  • Legend (TV series) - Needs much cleanup, like the Brisco article originally needed.
