Hi, I'm Mark. Though on the internet I'm more often "Delirium", a handle I picked in the mid-'90s in middle school, and kind of kept by inertia. In real life, I'm an academic with a background in computer science, specializing in artificial intelligence, though lately I've drifted more into history of technology. Much of my Wikipedia editing relates to my hobby of researching historical figures and events, though I occasionally edit in my "official" specialty. I grew up in Chicago and Houston, and since then have lived in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Santa Cruz, and Copenhagen. I've also spent a good amount of time in Thessaloniki.

Article lists[edit]

My Wikipedia interests are mainly in history. I'm especially interested in writing articles on people and events from non-English-speaking regions, even subjects of relatively minor importance. Since Wikipedia is a hypertext encyclopedia, good coverage in an area demands a dense article web, and for many non-English-speaking areas, the English Wikipedia's article web is quite sparse. And even minor subjects help illustrate the contours of a time and place, as well as providing link scaffolding to more easily add additional articles in that area into the English-Wikipedia web of knowledge.

For a combination of vanity and organizational purposes, here are some of the articles I've written, and which are still mostly my work the last time I checked:
