Hello I'm h2g2bob. I contribute to wikipedia every so often, and I'm also involved in other wiki sites. Feel free to leave me a message.

Who are you?

A picture of myself

My real name is David Batley, but I'm known to many as Physics Dave. I live in Eastwood, Essex in the United Kingdom. I'm a python programmer for a small company. I'm also an alumnus of the University of Exeter, having earned a 2:1 MPhys in theoretical physics.

My name is a compound of h2g2, a website founded by Douglas Adams as The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy's Earth Edition; and Bob a name which sounds funny.

My website is dbatley.com. In my spare time I do UnPlug (download video from websites), DipDaq (see how much some money is actually worth) and Deletionpedia (see old Wikipedia pages).

On Wikipedia, I'm mostly looking at improving coverage before the 2010 general election.
