Hi, I'm Chris Silver Smith, a writer, artist and technologist. I am an internet marketing consultant, and I also occasionally provide expert witness services in court cases involving internet technology, social media, online marketing, trademark infringement, and defamation.
Welcome to my Wikipedia profile page!
I've contributed to Wikipedia for a number of years now. Some of the articles which I contributed to include:
- James P. Blaylock - biographical info and particularly the bibliography
- Cheap Street Press - info about small, expired rare books press (and also the Small press publishers Category)
- Local Search Optimization - started/authored that article
- Local Search Engines
- Idearc Media - started/authored that article
- Edward Gorey- contributions
- Yellow Pages - contributions
My favorite article I added to Wikipedia is about the Gotham Book Mart - I'm particularly proud of that article due to how much research I put into composing the article from many authoritative references, and because of how notable and influential that independent book store was in Manhattan and worldwide.
Disclosure: In addition, I sometimes will provide my internet marketing clients with guidance and assistance regarding content affecting them in Wikipedia. In this respect, I'm currently representing:
- Thomson-Reuters FindLaw
- Universal Business Listing
- State Bank of Texas

Godaddy.com, Inc., Pension Funds v. Former Executives of R.H. Donnelley Corporation, PODS Enterprises, Inc. v. U-Haul International, Inc., and Daniel Hegglin v. Google, Inc..
