Hi, and welcome to my user page. I'm Brian Kunde, currently registered on Wikipedia as BPK2; previously I contributed briefly as Bpk1, and from IP addresses 171.64.139.118 and 171.64.139.139, among others. My interests are varied, some including, as reflected in my postings, speculative fiction and literature in general, Elizabethan theater, American comic books, and ancient history. Most of my postings concern literary figures and literary works. This page is updated as time and circumstances warrant; the "Articles created" section being the part updated most frequently. ~BPK, 11/9/05, rv. 2/21/06, 10/1/07, 1/5/12, 11/8/13.

Articles created[edit]

The listing is up-to-date as of the latest date cited in the prefatory count table. It includes templates created for use with other articles and recreates of occasional articles originally authored by others (most of which were also extensively rewritten or expanded), which are clearly noted in the list. It does not include items added incidentally to other work, such as discussion tabs, image uploads, redirect or disambiguation articles, and categories.

Count of articles by month[edit]

The count is current through 8/4/14. Numbers that are not final are in orange.

Friends[edit]

My friend and colleague Geoffrey Skinner is also an occasional Wikipedia contributor.

Cited[edit]

I discovered that one Wikipedia article cites me as a source (in an external link). As of this date, at least, the article Magnetic tape selectric typewriter references my old essay "A Brief History of Word Processing (Through 1986)". How about that! —1/26/2007. Looks like that article got renamed IBM MT/ST at some point. —6/30/2010.

Now I note that the article Word processor cites my essay too, which makes a lot more sense. —9/26/2007.

The Remains of the Day is another article now citing me as a source (as of yesterday), this time referencing my site "The Best English-Language Fiction of the Twentieth Century: A Composite List and Ranking". —6/30/2010.

On 9/15/2013 two references to my website on Mary Tappan Wright were added to the article on Wright's husband, John Henry Wright in support of some biographical data. While flattered, I felt compelled to remove them, as my website did not in this case meet Wikipedia's standards as a reliable source (being self-published and not in these instances directly referencing authoritative sources). One citation even pointed to a piece reproduced from the Mary Tappan Wright article I had previously written for Wikipedia itself, meaning that that Wikipedia had been made to cite itself as its own authority (albeit at one remove)! At some point I'll have to replace the no-doubt well-intentioned work of the editor who perpetrated the situation with proper sourcing... —9/19/2013.
