Hi, I'm N2e. I've been contributing to Wikipedia since 2004 but did not arrange to obtain a Wiki user ID until March of 2006. I never took the time to write a User Page until July 2008).

I have formal education in economics, engineering, organizational behavior, software engineering, information technology and management, and hold degrees in the first two. I have made my living in technology product development for many years, and I now teach economics at a small liberal arts college. I currently live in the western region of the United States.

About making Wikipedia a better encyclopedia[edit]

This I believe...

"I really want to encourage a much stronger culture which says: it is better to have no information, than to have information like this, with no sources. Any editor who removes such things, and refuses to allow it back without an actual and appropriate source, should be the recipient of a barnstar."
--Jimbo Wales, 19 July 2006
  • "The freedom to read and learn what you wish, without being spied upon, is a fundamental human right which is core to everything that we do and everything that we stand for." --Jimbo Wales. 15 January 2014

  • Take a look at the New product development article: the current (Dec 2014) instance is overly focused on merely the marketing and sales conceptualization of NPD. Need to get the equally-applicable parallel technical side of development better represented, dealing with requirements --> design --> build prototypes and write software --> validate and test --> release side on the map, as it is quite underrepresented in that article.
