My first name begins with a G, and, and, guess what, I'm a Man, hence the name G-Man. It took me hours to think that up :-)
I've been contributing to wikipedia since February 2003.
Here's some of the images I have added to Wikipedia at my photo gallery.
|4 March 2015|
Here's a list of significant articles I have either created or added significantly to.
You do understand of course that this list is purely for my own benefit so I can remember what I've written, and has nothing to do with me bragging......Honest

Stuff about me
Just in case you're wondering (which you're probably not, but I'll tell you anyway) here are some things about my beliefs etc.
Religion. I don't follow any particular religion, but I believe that all the world's religions teach basically the same common sense rules of morality and behaviour, like treating your fellow men with respect and dignity and loving thy neighbour etc. (it's a shame more people who call themselves religious don't follow them really). I generally regard organised religion as a divisive and destructive force in the world.
Politics. I am on the liberal/left-wing side of politics. I would describe myself as a democratic socialist of Social Democrat. I believe that it's the government's job to re-distribute wealth and ensure that everyone in society has a minimum standard of living, and has the basics of life. Although I tend to vote for the Liberal Democrats or sometimes the Green Party.
Oh yes, I am also a keen Cyclist.
And I am not a Fish
There I hope you found that interesting.
