I never know how to introduce myself in these things. I suppose I could say that I'm an aging hippy, a nerd, gamer, amateur historian and genealogist, a Mac fanatic, and lover of trashy and genre media and popular culture.

I am not a particularly prolific Wikipedian, but I do tend to contribute periodically to articles of interest to me. If you check my contributions, you'll see they are all over the place in terms of subject.

I maintain a large collection of web pages on things of interest to me, a couple of which parallel articles here. Many of my edits of Wikipedia articles relate to these topics one way or another.

Wikipedia topic My Web Page Description
Nerd The Origin of the Nerd The origin of the word "nerd"
Julie d'Aubigny The adventurous La Maupin The life and times of La Maupin, aka Julie d'Aubigny, a bisexual 17th century opera star and duelist
Pin-up Cheesecake and the Art of the Pin-up The history of pin-up art from the late 19th century to the present.

As you can see, the topics are fairly diverse. Each started as a subject I knew a bit about but wanted to know more, and so I started a web page on the topic and after a decade or so of researching and receiving e-mail on the topic I begin to feel like I know something about it. I think that's one of the really great things about the Web. Wikipedia seems to have found a way to speed up the process.
