My name is Erik Möller. I am an employee of the Wikimedia Foundation, but this is my volunteer account. (If you're mad about something I did, it's probably this guy's fault.) I joined Wikipedia in 2001 and have since been involved in the project in pretty much all different areas. I spend most of my available time these days in my professional role, but you'll still see me occasionally doing some semi-useful volunteer work, I hope. :)
- Until August 25, 2014, this account was also my staff account. All edits from this account after that date should be assumed to be in a volunteer capacity.
What I believe
I am a socially liberal secular humanist and an optimist. I believe that effective collaboration is essential to the growth and survival of our species, and hope to learn and share ideas about collaboration through my work. I have concluded that certain memes (ideas) are destructive to society, including: the idea that strong intellectual monopoly rights are required to develop a rich and expressive culture, the idea that abortion is murder, the idea that physical pleasure and affection is an inherently dangerous or corrupting influence, and virtually any totalitarian/dogmatic belief system. I consider myself highly pragmatic about the present, and highly aspirational about the future.
Symbols I identify with include the "happy human" , an international symbol of secular humanism, and the "Eye of Sauron" , the logo of the Definition for Free Cultural Works.
