Basics[edit]

Through May 2009, I primarily made edits and expansions to articles pertaining to Cornell as a member of the Cornell University WikiProject, though I dabbled in other areas as well.

As of June 2009, I am again living in my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, so I plan to adapt my focus to the people, places, and phenomena of Western Pennsylvania. See my userbox column for current project affiliations.

I enjoy photography, and I have made over one hundred image contributions to Wikimedia Commons, including (apparently) the first photo of infamous politician Buddy Cianci. Here is my userpage on Wikimedia Commons.

I was featured in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for my work on Wikipedia; the column is here.

Username[edit]

My username is a moniker I've been using since about 2003 or 2004. It refers to a They Might Be Giants song from the album No!. Although it was meant as an absurdist joke of sorts, I slowly grew to realize the name can be construed as being aggressive or hostile, especially among those unfamiliar with the song reference, and especially in a collaborative environment such as Wikipedia which makes extensive use of cleaning metaphors and broom imagery. In an attempt to mitigate the issue, I've changed my signature to "—Bill Price (nyb)".

For consistent effort to improve university articles. I rarely award two barnstars to the same editor, but you deserve it! —Eustress talk 01:54, 15 July 2010 (UTC)
