Basic information[edit]

Topics I created[edit]

(most recent at the top) (I left out stubs that I made)

Major contributions[edit]

  • Angela Beesley - this was an interesting one, I accidentally got caught in some internal Wikipedia politics after voting and getting curious about why she resigned. Well, score one for persistence and a thick skin...
  • Ultimate (sport)
  • Computer science (and related articles) - I discovered this page with a weak summary and very little substantive content. I added substantial content and did a lot of mediation around the highly contentious summary. Eventually I managed to get the ball rolling on dispute resolution in part by forcing a 3RR and waving a flag at the mediation forces, before I took off for XMas 2005. Now it seems that things have been settled excellently by various people.
  • Information graphics (and related articles) - a pet project for quite some time
  • Tunis - beefed it up through translation and research/images, prior to the WSIS Tunis event
  • Chart - enhanced coverage of all the myriad kinds of charts people use
  • Hurricane_Katrina#Media_involvement
  • Wisdom
  • Tram - translated major portions from french - much of it still survives
