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. Now that I'm better than 50/50 I intend to write 2 for 1 women over men.


Works in Progress (Sandbox)[edit]

From most active to least:

  • South-View Cemetery - historic Atlanta cemetery
  • Agnes L. Ballard - early Florida architect and otherwise awesome woman
  • Clermont Lee - one of the Georgia Women of Achievement for 2017.
  • Mary Sullivan - NYPD officer, first female homicide detective, buster of psychics and quacks
  • Amy Tanner - revamp of existing article, I think I can expand it enough to get her a DYK so I'm gonna do it all at once.
  • Mike Marmer - Emmy-winning comedy writer for Get Smart and The Carol Burnett Show. I may write this as a two-person bio with his writing partner Stan Burns as many of the same sources apply.
  • Lindsay Beyerstein - journalist, podcaster. At least 21 articles already mention her by name.
  • Buckhead Theatre - just reopened venue in Atlanta - the current Roxy Theatre article is about a long-gone movie theater, and many other articles are mis-linked to it, actually meaning this venue in Buckhead. [1] [2] [3] [4]

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.
