Welcome to my talk page!
Please place new messages at the bottom of this page, or click here to start a new discussion, which will automatically be at the bottom. I will respond to comments here, unless there's a better place for them. Please read the following helpful hints, as well as our talk page guidelines before posting:
- Think. Use common sense. Failure to do so may see your posts ignored.
- Wikipedia is an encyclopedia. That means it is not a social networking site, a place for self-promotion, a marketing tool or a free web host.
- The possibility that the blog/MySpace page/Youtube Video/sign on a telephone pole you read is a reliable source is roughly equal to the chance that I will be the next Pope. I'm a lesbian. You do the math.
- If I nominated your page for deletion, read the CSD I nominated it under, one passing mention in a trade magazine does not make your company/band/mummified cat juggling act worthy of a Wikipedia article.
It's important to realize the propaganda coup the disastrous spying policies of the NSA have handed to authoritarian governments worldwide. They can push through laws clearly designed to tighten control over their citizens, on the premise of protecting them from the NSA, and the public in Russia is likely to have some sympathy. After all, the Brazilians (who appear to have little authoritarian aims at all) are heading down the same path. It's a disaster for an open and free and neutral Internet, an Internet of the world. ~ Jimbo Wales

Looking for editors to help with an Asian Pacific American edit-a-thon in Honolulu
Last summer I moved to the Seattle area after 14 years in Kailua on Oahu. I immediately fell in with the Cascadia Wikimedians User Group as it formed, joined its board and became its first president as well as the GLAM representative for Washington State.
Recently, Adriel Luis, Curator (Digital & Emerging Media) at the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, contacted me about setting up an edit-a-thon like the previous Wikipedia APA edit-a-thon. In addition to discussing one for Seattle, he wrote:
||It's awesome to learn about your past in Honolulu - I'm actually going to be there for another SmithsonianAPA project mid September, and thinking that this could be an opportunity to do an event there as well! I have lots of contacts with UH and the museums, but do you know of any contacts on the Wikimedia side out there?
As I was working two jobs while I lived on Oahu, I did not have the opportunity to meet your or any other Wikipedians at the time. Hence, the reason why I am contacting you now.
If you would like to help, please contact me through one of these methods:
