My name is Sandy and I teach management at a US university. If I do ever get tenure, I would like to study the sociology of Wikipedia... especially policies like "ignore all rules", which encourage common sense and minimize the drawbacks of bureaucracy. This is consistent with my assumption that most organizations will be more effective if every member thinks like a manager.
For now, though, I'm putting my nose back to the grindstone to see if I can win my next hand in the game of publish or perish. I will only be on Wikipedia at most once or twice a week to do some little edits and perhaps some light translation.... I view Wikipedia as stress relief and a mechanism for coping with insomnia, so please be kind if you need to raise some issue with anything I'm doing here.

Things I have learned by exploring Wikipedia
- I learned of the existence of the Philosophical Gourmet Report (although at first I thought it might be a joke).
- I learned that the European higher education system is moving toward standardizing on the same types of degrees that are used in the US and UK systems, as part of the Bologna process.
- I learned that Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono received more votes in the Indonesian presidential election of Sept. 20, 2004 than George W. Bush received in the U.S. presidential election of Nov. 2, 2004.
- I learned that the shōjo style of manga is targeted to Japanese girls as an audience.
- I learned that scientists of different nationalities have different estimates of the height of Mount Everest, and the latest is 8,844.43 m.
- Edit-counting may not be fatal, but it can certainly be addictive. Sometime in late November, 2005, I surpassed 1500 edits according to Kate's tool.
