Greetings, I'm Jodi Schneider, a researcher at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign.
Wikipedia & My Research on Wikipedia
I have been editing the English Wikipedia since October 2006. I contribute mainly by adding redirects, fixing typos and grammar, and flagging articles that need improvement. Occasionally I'll set out to edit specifically, rather than editing as I read; fun but time-consuming!
Besides editing Wikipedia, I research it, in part through talking with and interviewing other Wikipedians. If you have any questions or do not feel comfortable, please feel free to ask via email, or for public discussions, on my Talk page.
My scholarly interests are in information, people, and technology. Specifically, I am interested in how people share and create knowledge, and how the technologies we use shape information and knowledge production. I am particularly interested in Internet-based and Internet-mediated communication -- both in shaping it with the Semantic Web and in understanding how scholarly communication, peer knowledge production, and social networks are already operating online. You can see more about what I'm working on my academic homepage. Recently I completed my Ph.D. from the Digital Enterprise Research Institute at the National University of Ireland, Galway; my dissertation used Wikipedia AfD discussions as a case study.
Other wiki projects
I am also an admin for AcaWiki, a structured semantic wiki for summarizing research papers.
Please leave comments on my talk page or get in touch via email.

Things Not to Worry about
- Investigate We Rule A7 deletion, via http://twitter.com/fuzheado/status/12412047177 ; are there relevant sources? Does A7 apply to software (not web content)? -- page is there, no indication of deletion or its reversion. A mystery!
- Investigating notablity of Argumentation Service Platform with Integrated Components, aka http://argumentation.org/ , an EU-funded FP6 project, so Wikipedia:CSD#A7 does not seem to apply.
- Improve notability sourcing for Flirt FM
