    Hi! I'm Rich.

    I've been here since 2005!

    I spent a lot of time illustrating articles with CC photos from Flickr and government documents. I also started quite a few articles about neuroscience, computer science and pharmacology.

    The largest article I started is Hyperloop, my favorite article I started is Scutoid.

    These days, I mostly make small changes. It appears I have inadvertently developed a new mission to protect and restore information which people often try to sneakily remove for their own personal and professional benefit.

    If you are not an expert on a topic, do not make negative changes to an article. You are destroying Wikipedia. I really cannot stress this enough, if you are a person who goes around trying to drive-by delete articles that other people have written on topics that you know nothing about, you should rethink what you do with your life. I don't see it as being any different than defacing public art.

    Fun fact: I am literally the reason why WP:BLACKLOCK exists, due to my contributions to Texas Instruments signing key controversy.
