Hi, I'm Rita. The username Uxbona comes from an ancient name for Lisbon. That's where I live and work as a copywriter. I registered in Wikipedia in December 2008, after a while researching on history. It as since became a habit, a pleasurable - and, I hope, a helpful- variation.
I seek clear informative articles grounded on verifiable references. To that end, I fight weasel words wherever I find it, and dig worthy references whenever I can. In two years I've made 2944 editions in 7 projects, including translating to, and from, the Portuguese Wikipedia.
Exploration and Portuguese history have been the main interests. Traveling with European explorers through history - mainly Portuguese countrymen- I've reached the Indian Ocean, and now explore the Portuguese history in these shores.
Some articles I have worked on
- I gave a major contribute to develop this unreferenced and partial article into the current Age of discovery.
- A "coathrack" driftage on previous article leading to the creation of Major explorations after the Age of Discovery
- I went trough Afonso de Albuquerque's feats, a number of biographies, the Mare clausum policy, Factories, Casa da Índia, the Columbian exchange, and the history of globalization.
