My user name -- RoyGoldsmith -- has nothing to do with my quality, or lack thereof, as a editor (or anything else). My first name is Roy and Goldsmith is a re-working of some of my logins; it has no meaning beyond that.

Who am I?[edit]

I've been active in wiki-editing from March 2009 (that's 8 years, 6 months and 29 days). Beside correcting grammar, I usually choose one significant article at a time: the Fiscal cliff and the Shooting of Michael Brown are two of my favorites.

In real life, I live in the New Jersey suburbs of New York City. I'm a computer programmer specializing a niche called the Pick system or IBM U2. I've recently learned Java. I am 61 years old, male and a definite and premeditated nerd. I think the Wikipedia concept is the greatest thing I've ever heard of since sliced bread.
