Jerome West

I am a SEO specialist, web and multimedia designer/developer living in Johannesburg, South Africa for the last two decades after moving up from the south coast of KwaZulu-Natal. My pet project is a daily photo blog at One Day in the Life of Jerome which started on the 1 January 2007 and depicts one photo per day from my life.

I discovered wikis when a client asked me for one for their website. The client gave me wikipedia.org as an example when I returned a blank look. The following week wikipedia won a Webby award so I had to go look for myself. Since May 2004 I have since become addicted to wikipedia and to the way information has become accessible to the masses.

I started editing on 19 May 2004 and passed the 9000 edit mark. (see: X!'s Edit Counter) My Wikipedoholic rating is 45 97 121 59. Okay it has dropped due to my family life and work load at Bosasa. To be fair Bosasa is in a eco park which makes it easier.

My contributions so far have been centered around my love for Africa. I have compiled this list (most of them stubs) below so that I can find articles that I am still working on quickly.
