User:Ben Louis Yates
I have had a long interest in new ways of writing, and have been active for several years in the Wikipedia hive -- and in critiquing and filtering Wikipedia on my weblog, wikip.blogspot.com. I designed the Wikimania logo and manage Wikipedia's CafePress store.
In a similar vein, I'm sporadically studying for a degree in technical communication; I have a certification in the field from Washtenaw Community College.
I'm also a pianist with interests in indy rock, jazz, hiphop, and electronica. A few aging music samples are on my myspace page.
To pay the rent, I work as a data entry clerk and occasional web designer. My professional website can be found at http://benyates.info.
I'm from Ann Arbor, Michigan and was born in 1982.
