I've used this account as a WikiGnome since 2004—I edited anonymously before that. In 2010 I published Good Faith Collaboration: The Culture of Wikipedia, a book about Wikipedia's historical roots, collaborative culture, and much debated legacy. That same year I reconstructed Wikipedia from its first ten thousand edits. You can read more about my work at my home page.

I'm working on a collection of essays for Wikipedia's upcoming 20th birthday.
