About me

I'm an ex-lawyer and ex-programmer. I've spent my entire adult life doing peer production of various sorts, including hacking Lego robots, debugging Linux desktops, and revising the Mozilla Public License. Now I lead the Community Engagement department at Wikimedia. You can find more about me at w:Luis Villa and

Personal/for-fun edits are mostly at w:User:LuisVilla.

My work

I help Wikimedians build a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
