Hi, I'm Will, residing in Seattle with my wife and son. I don't have as much time as I once did, so I'm just a wikipedia browser mostly these days.

These userboxes are an interesting thing, aren't they? I guess there's some sort of userbox war that went on (or is going on)? Is that with people trying to have the most? The oddest? I think they're a handy way to put out quickly what your interests are but like all things Wikipedia, I'm sure people go too far.

Wikipedia really has given the stay-at-home crowd a good hobby, hasn't it? I'm both happy that this resource has benefited from their focus and slightly appalled at someone who gets an award for "More than 1000 edits to medieval clothing coloration" or something like that. Or maybe I'm just jealous!
