About me

I am Ganesh Krishnamurthy, an Indian American, originally from Chennai, living in the metro Atlanta area, United States. I am a software developer by profession. I am interested in topics related to astronomy, biology, geography, history and technology. On Wikipedia, I am focused on improving India-related topics, as a member of WikiProject India. I have also been helping WikiProject Gastropods with software development expertise. I can be reached via a message on my talk page or an e-mail.

I had started actively editing Wikipedia in November 2005, and became an administrator in June 2006. I operate a bot, Ganeshbot and help automate some tasks with it. In June 2006, Ganeshbot created about 5000 Indian town articles on the English Wikipedia based on the data collected from Indian Census of 2001. Ganeshbot has been assisting WikiProject Gastropods since March 2010 and has so far created more than 18,000 snail articles using the data downloaded from the World Register of Marine Species. The bot is ranked #9 on the list of Wikipedians by number of pages created.

I had developed the CSVLoader plugin for AutoWikiBrowser and support it on a regular basis. It allows for articles to be created based on the data from CSV files. It has been used on the Dutch Wikipedia to create more than 300,000 articles and on the Tamil Wiktionary to create more than 100,000 dictionary entries. I had also written the WoRMS and Category creation plugins for AutoWikiBrowser.

Offline, I had helped organize Wikipedian meetups in Atlanta.
