I prefer to go by Z. (zhe/zir) here
(as simplified US-English name initial, instead of a Slavic name challenge that too many fail)
as ~Zblace (would be ~zBlace if MediaWiki would allow).
I am (kind of) committed to FLOSS, OpenKnowledge and OpenCulture, but also SituatedKnowledge and passionate about UnderCommons, and supportive of OpenData and OpenGov initiatives, as well as participatory methods, that can help emancipate under-represented.
More of my biographic info in the context of new media culture curating, advocacy, activism, and CEE is on https://monoskop.org/Z._Blace
My wiki background is in (scattered) histories of different wiki and media cultures, and was mostly outside the Wikipedia sphere.
Though I am a fairly early wiki user/promoter/educator, I was an on and off Wikipedia contributor, but recently turned into Wikimedia/MediaWiki advocate, educator, and somewhat researcher in wiki cultures, including local (metapedianism).
My contributing here is related to:
- supporting new projects/activities and learning from existing/past
- learning about systems, workflows, tools, and policies
