This is a collection of data I keep up with regarding my personal contributions to Wikipedia. Some are exact figures and others are based on informed estimations (such as the percentage of text on Wiki that came from me).

Along the same topic of editing, check out this website which allows people to "hear" Wikipedia being edited. It prescribes a tune for each edit (which varies according to edit size) and each time a new user registers. After a few minutes it becomes somewhat hypnotic and even soothing. A very cool site indeed. Take a listen (doesn't require any downloads).
