3,000 Wikipedia Contributions

Well, it’s actually been a while since I passed the 3,000-edit mark on Wikipedia, but now I have reasonable assurance that external edit counters will also show it, not just the internal api.php output. But anyway, I’m very happy about it. The secret to doing this is to ignore everything else you’re supposed to be doing and sneak off to Wikipedia to watch for vandalism. Yes, you can get behind in school (or your work), but isn’t improving the Internet’s best free encyclopedia worth it?

(Note: That was a joke; I do not advocate getting behind in anything for the sole purpose of editing Wikipedia.)

I am an avid technology and software user, in addition to being reasonably well-versed in CSS, JavaScript, HTML, PHP, Python, and (though it still scares me) Perl. Aside from my technological tendencies, I am also a theatre technician, sound designer, violinist, singer, and actor.
