Please post any comments to me on my talk page - thanks!



A bit about me[edit]

My book, Wikipedia: The Missing Manual, was published by O'Reilly Media (Pogue Press) on January 25, 2008. It was the first book about how to edit Wikipedia; the second, How Wikipedia Works, was published in September 2008. You can find out more about my book at my website www.gopedia.org. (As of January 2009, it is also on Wikipedia, as a set of "Help:" pages that can be edited.)

Within Wikipedia, my primary accomplishment has been the creation of the Editor's index to Wikipedia. I've done a bit of almost every type of editing since I became a registered editor in August 2005.

Since August 2012, I have lived in Sonoma County, California. My LibraryThing page is here. And I'm not the Australian astronomer about whom Wikipedia has an article: John Broughton.

Wow, I saw the manual was scheduled to be shipped to Borders the other day, and while browsing Wikipedia, I find the author. This manual was a great idea, and hopefully will do well. Good luck, Malinaccier (talk) 00:08, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
I concur, from the limited previews I've read online, it looks excellent. Must get to a bookstore ASAP. :) Keilana|Parlez ici 00:09, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
