I have known about Wikipedia for years. I've used it frequently over the past couple of years, especially when looking for information from my BlackBerry.
I first heard about the concept of a wiki about ten years ago, and wasn't impressed at the time. I went to work for a new company in September 2006 and they established an internal wiki soon after. That was my first exposure to editing a wiki.
I created an account here in order to post a comment on Xylitol without showing my work IP address on 2-Oct-6. I started making minor edits that afternoon.
These are project pages that I found myself repeatedly looking for at some time. It isn't clear whether they will be useful to anyone else, but it is nice knowing that they are only a couple of clicks away.
When I first joined Wikipedia, I kept track of most of my edits. I stopped when I branched out into more projects and started using AWB and other similar tools. These have not been maintained for months (or longer):
