|“||A man with great knowledge of media
wrote an article for Wikipedia.
But sadly, the "Moogle"
didn't show up on Google;
Its deletion could not have been speedier.
I'm a programmer and mostly inactive user. I created my account on Wikipedia on October 23, 2004. After seeing a year's worth of my work here erased piecemeal through the churn of the deletionists, I walked away in frustration. I still pop on from time to time to check in and make the occasional fix to articles I'm browsing. I still use Wikipedia almost every day as a reader, but my days of being an active editor are essentially over. I've left my user page pretty much intact.
I think my most lasting contributions are copyleft images I added to the commons. You can see my photos under the Photographs I've taken section. If you would like me to relicense any of my media contributions under a new license, please contact me and I'd be happy to cooperate.
I feel that I have made a significant contribution to the following articles.
Articles I've started
I started the following articles, but others have (or should have) contributed a great deal.
- Canon GL-2, my new camera.
- Three-CCD, imaging technology used in the GL-2 and most professional video cameras.
Photographs I've taken
To see my full collection of photograph and media uploads, visit my commons user page. However, these are the ones I'm most proud of, either for artistic content or encyclopedic value.
Entries I'd like to write/expand
- The Bracewell Observatory, sadly demolished last year by the coldhearted administration of Stanford University.
- Webchat Broadcasting System, a popular internet communty site in the 90's in which my parents had a founding role
- Bob Lash, my father (an original member of the Homebrew computer club)
- Avid Media Composer, which I have an opportunity to work on starting this year
- Sometimes In April, an excellent and underrated film about the Rwandan genocide that deserves more attention
Things I'd like To Photograph
- My Murphy bed
- Chapman University, my college
Various camera dollies (Including a Fisher), dolly track, cardelini clamp
- A slate*, and a slate being held to represent MOS
- A chapman mixing stage, recording room, foley stage and mocap stage
- Combo stand and High-roller
- Bounce card/quacker clamp, shiny board*, scrims and flags
An HMIand possibly some Mole lights*
- A Fostex field recorder*, maybe a mixer
- My AKG K240 M Headphones
- Anything else I have access to here
- Ronald N. Bracewell* ( )
- The Bracewell Observatory* ( )
*I have photographed this, but I still need to retouch or re-shoot the photo.

Other Wikimedia Projects
- simple:User:Fadookie (I've pretty much given up here. The people who could really use a resouce like this- ESL teachers and adult educators- are being ignored, and the tendency is to ignore the BE 850 or even the BE 1500 and instead write a patronizing, dumbed down, kiddie wikipedia.)

|Picture of the day|
The M-209 is a portable, mechanical cipher machine used primarily by the US military in World War II, though it remained in active use through the Korean War. In this photograph, an intermediate gear unit (center) meshes with gears adjoining each key wheel. Visible to the left of the image is the typewheel that prints out messages and ciphertext onto paper tape.
