Let wealth and commerce, laws and learning die,
But leave us still our old nobility.

Hey! My name's Matt Flaschen, but I go by Superm401 around here and on IRC. I'm from Lower Merion, Pennsylvania. I'm 26. I graduated from Georgia Tech in December 2010, with a BS in Computer Science. I'm currently living in Philadelphia.

I am a Wikipedia administrator. Feel free to make requests on my talk page or on the administrators' noticeboard.

I am a software engineer on the Growth team. Since December 2012, I have been employed by the Wikimedia Foundation. Two of my primary projects are GettingStarted and Guided tours.

I am also the lead developer on ProveIt, a graphical tool for Wikipedia referencing.

Although I work for the Wikimedia Foundation, contributions under this account do not necessarily represent the actions or views of the Foundation unless expressly stated otherwise. For example, edits to articles or uploads of other media are done in my individual, personal capacity unless otherwise stated.

Wikipedia Quotes[edit]

  • "There wasn't a big encyclopedia, then people were allowed to edit it just for fun. There was nothing, and people were allowed to create an encyclopedia." -- Notinasnaid
  • "At the end of the day we are all flawed meatbots trying to build a great encylopedia together." -- R.D.H. (Ghost In The Machine)
  • "I'm addicted to reading Wikipedia, it's the only encyclopedia that grows faster than you can read :D" -- Taraborn

I'm mostly a wikignome. Besides admin duties, I do verification and referencing, and update diagrams and illustrations to use SVG, an easily editable vector graphics format. Below are a few of my other contributions.
