Friejose, my handle, originates from the silly nomenclature that the Cornell Law School formerly used to create internal e-mail addresses. The word is created from the first four letters of my family name "Frie", the first three letters of my given name "jos", and my middle initial "e". Can you guess my name?

For anyone who's interested, please do check out my blog.

I initially added to the Hingham, Massachusetts and Red Sox Nation entries, although my favorite work is for the Hongosan entry. A secret fear of mine is that Hongosan will get deleted because I failed to grasp some important piece of WikiEsoterica. I will probably add to more entries subsequently in an attempt to procrastinate effectively. If, for some reason, you're interested in the WikiContributions I'm most proud of, well, now you know where to look.

Help me[edit]

The following articles are either ones I've run across and taken some kind of personal interest in, and I think they are subpar in some way. I don't mean that as an insult, especially since I've created some of them, but rather that they could use some significant copy editing, expansion, and/or other work. Help me make these articles better:

Amusements or are they?[edit]

I used to go a wide variety of pages in 2005 and edited some and read lots of articles and talk pages. For example, for an amusing peek at how serious some Wikipedians can get, I suggest you check out the WikiAbsurdity at the Votes for Deletion page for The Fray.

But I interjected myself into too many nationalism related POV arguments, and other charged disagreements. If you have a moment, and speak Greek, you may enjoy this exchange. I didn't enjoy it much after awhile. So I left. For 2+ years.

Now I'm trying to be mellow and just do fun little edits on non-controversial topics. Let's see how long that lasts.

  • Wow, I have gotten pretty much nothing done at work today due to my WikiAffliction. Posted at 22:20, 9 August 2005 (UTC)

I reached 500 edits (according to Kate's edit counter, which now appears to be defunct) on 22 August 2005. Wikipedia's own counter puts me at 778 edits as of 3 October 2007. As I said, I was off the reservation for some time.

I made my 1,000th edit in Wikipedia as a whole to the MyFootballClub article on 15 November 2007. Check it out!. Or not. Whatever.

Eek! I'm up over 1,800 edits as of 10 July 2008, and I found a new edit counter to replace Kate's defunct one mentioned above.

Apparently, I am now at 2,636 edits on 3 January 2009. This seems a bit excessive to me, maybe I'll dial it back a bit.[1]
