From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

I'm a computer scientist. I've worked on a broad range of topics in computer science research as well as in industry. With respect to wikis, I founded the Wiki Symposium in 2005. I was the WikiSym program chair in 2005 and I was the conference chair in 2006. I'm interested in all things wiki, which includes Wikipedia and the Wikimedia Foundation. I'm also interested in the general principles underlying this be they called chaos theory, self-organization, collective intelligence. I've started to call it open collaboration.

I maintain a personal website at where you can look up my research and industry work (mostly papers, but also a research blog).
