I'm Timothy Patrick Farley a computer security analyst who lives in Atlanta, Georgia. I do computer security and reverse engineering work and I'm a skeptic. My main interests in Wikipedia are in the areas of scientific skepticism and pseudoscience as well as the city of Atlanta where I live. I particularly like writing about historic buildings and the architects who designed them. Lately I've also been branching more into music-related articles, particularly jazz.

I also am interested in the Women in Red effort and am personally trying to help with that. I've pledged to myself not to make the man/woman imbalance any worse than it is, by writing more women's bios than I write men's.

Wikipedia Articles[edit]

Here are articles on Wikipedia which I created:


To keep myself honest about my pledge to not make the gender imbalance in biographies any worse, here are the biographies I've created lined up next to each other. I've been writing bios of only women lately, to stay better than 2 to 1 (women to men).


Works in Progress (Sandbox)[edit]

From most active to least:

Other Articles Needing Attention[edit]

I maintain a "to do list" of articles that I could work on, but haven't started a sandbox for here. Also includes existing articles that I've noticed need work.
