About me[edit]

I am Dutch, born in 1955 and live in Leiden. Wikipedian since 2002. Data analyst for the Wikimedia Foundation since 2008.

My blog about Wikimedia stats, my Wikimedia projects, my LinkedIn profile, my Twitter account and art academy projects.

Visualizations: Wikipedia Growth Animated, Wikipedia Edits On A Random Day.


My work sometimes involves interacting with the Wikimedia community or using Wikimedia wikis for documentation. However, unless otherwise stated, any edit to Wikimedia projects by myself is a reversible act of a regular member of the community, not a legal or official action.
