About[edit]

I am an active Wikipedian, Global Voices reader, and news junkie. I started the "press corps" on meta before Wikinews had taken form. I'm mainly interested in underemphasized international stories, initiatives like the local in-country news depots, and reporting on technology and innovation (particularly social networks and massively-parallel collaboration; but there's too little of that these days).

Activity: meta|wikimania!|translation > wp > wn > wb > wikt
Contact: See meta.sj and Sj for meta- and wikipedia content, respectively. See also User:Samuel Klein.
Projects: Daily throughput. Please help me process and classify these stubs. Paused for a while for classification.
Recent work: E3 reports and images | Boston T turnstile upgrade (if I can find that elusive camera...)
