My name is Erik Möller. I am an employee of the Wikimedia Foundation, but this is my volunteer account.[1] (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. :)

  1. 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" HumanismSymbol.svg, an international symbol of secular humanism, and the "Eye of Sauron" Definition of Free Cultural Works logo notext.svg, the logo of the Definition for Free Cultural Works.
