The Signpost
16 July 2014

A century after the 1911 Edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica, Wikipedia too threatens to become "the sum of human knowledge" for modern times, with 4,563,559 entries at this moment.

Many of my contributions to this juggernaut have been initiated by finding empty entries or stubs during 'Random Article' searches. I am also interested in connections. Many of my minor edits have been to fix links, grammar and spelling. Of the articles that I write, I tend to focus on biographical matters rather than technical ones. I have also contributed quite a few photographs, some of which you can find at the bottom of this page.

If you are new to Wikipedia (or you've been here too long and need to come up for air), take a look at the Wikipedia Signpost. If you really need a break, read this, then follow the link. If you want help from the editors of Wikipedia, try the Reference Desk.
