I'm Dave Waterson, I'm 35 years old, and I currently live in Birmingham in the West Midlands of England, where I work for the Council. I previously worked for a town planning consultancy specialising in mobile telecommunications mast planning applications (primarily for Hutchison 3G, Vodafone, O2, and T-Mobile), and so maintain an interest in the telecommunications industry.

I was born in Portsmouth, Hampshire, and grew up in nearby Fareham on the sunny south coast. I am a graduate of St Chad's College, University of Durham, and I pay occasional visits there. In September 2006 I began studying for an MSc in Real Estate Management at UCE Birmingham Birmingham City University. I have been Wikipeding since August 2005, and I hope I can help further.


Articles to which I have contributed significantly include:

Association of Wikipedians Who Dislike Making Broad Judgments About the Worthiness of a General Category of Article, and Who Are in Favor of the Deletion of Some Particularly Bad Articles, but That Doesn't Mean They Are Deletionists


Est omnino difficile iudicare inclusionis meritum cuiusdam rei in encyclopædia cum ratio sciendi quid populi referat incerta sit, sed nihilominus aliquid encyclopædiam dedecet

It is generally difficult to judge the worthiness of a particular topic for inclusion in an encyclopedia considering that there is no certain way to know what interests people, but some topics nevertheless are not fit for an encyclopedia.

This motto reflects the desire of these Wikipedians to be reluctant, but not entirely unwilling, to remove articles from Wikipedia.
