About me

I've been at the Wikimedia Foundation since June 2010. Prior to that, I worked at Linden Lab (makers of Second Life) and before that, at RealNetworks for nine years, where I co-authored/edited the RTSP and SMIL specifications, and later helped Real open source much of its code as "Helix".

My work

I use this account (RobLa-WMF) for any editing relating to my job function. When I'm just goofing around, I use RobLa.

For example, edits to articles or uploads of other media are done in my individual, personal capacity unless otherwise stated.
