My name is Patrick Earley. I'm a British Columbian, from the Interior of the province (hence the username). I mostly edit topics related to Canada, but will branch out on occasion to anything that catches my attention. There are many aspects of Wikipedia that interest me; at present I'm involved with The Wikipedia Library, where I help coordinate the project with Ocaasi. Outside of Wikipedia, I work for the Wikimedia Foundation as a Community Advocate, and for the Vancouver Public Library.
Although I work for the Wikimedia Foundation, contributions under this account are exclusively in my individual, personal capacity. To contact me in my role as Community Advocate, please leave your message at User talk:PEarley (WMF). To speak to me as a volunteer on Wikipedia, please leave your message at User talk:The Interior.
Thank you for reverting the vandalism on my userpage. Much appreciated! ConcernedVancouverite (talk) 14:59, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

For the article on the Illecillewaet Glacier - took my breath away! Have you considered putting it up for Good Article status? Ironholds (talk) 12:03, 27 September 2012 (UTC)

Congratulations on reaching the milestone of 25 DYKs. Your efforts and contributions have significantly added to Wikipedia's coverage of Canada and BC. Excellent job and keep up the great work! —Bloom6132 (talk) 21:10, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
I used my new JSTOR access in anger for the first time today - it's fantastic. Just wanted to drop by and say thank you for your hard work organising that project. Hope you enjoyed Wikimania! Yunshui雲水 13:19, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
