I'm back, baby!
I am currently freelancing as a software engineer.
I have a passion for not only increasing my own knowledge but helping others access free (as in freedom) knowledge.
I am particularly interested in: (in no particular order) Science, Technology, Theology, Philosophy, Politics and Music (and, particularly, how they relate to and converge with each other in society).
- I studied Bsc Computer Science at the University of Greenwich as a mature student in the United Kingdom.
- I also studied Diploma of Christian Ministry, a two year full time intensive course, at the International Bible Institute of London (graduated with Distinction in 1994).
I will probably be restricted to authoring a few article stubs in the Computer Workgroup and hopefully develop them into full articles with the help of others.
I will generally make minor improvements to, and monitor, articles in the Religion and Science Workgroups but I don't really have enough expertise in those areas to do any significant authoring.
Computer Workgroup activity
- Software engineering. Major rewrite. I'd like to get this article to approved status.
- Software Engineering Institute. Stub started. May add more later.
- Capability Maturity Model. Stub started. May add more later.
- Capability Maturity Model Integration. Stub started. May add more later.
- History of computing (Additional information, some clean up and restructuring)
- Computer science. This major article was imported from Wikipedia in April 2007 and then blanked. Sadly, it's remained a stub since then. This is a major article in the CZ:Computers Workgroup and needs to be developed into an approved article as soon as possible.
- British Computer Society. New article to write.
Religion Workgroup activity
- Young earth creationism - Restructured and re-wrote. Keeping a watch to ensure it remains neutral and accurate. This is the sort of article where opinions and feelings run high on both sides and if CZ can remain neutral on this (and some other articles) then I am confident we can succeed where other projects fail.
- [list to be added]
Every author should make sure they fully understand the Citizendium Neutrality Policy in full before editing or creating any controversial articles (or, indeed, all articles).
The above is paramount to the success of this project; the misunderstanding and misapplication of the Neutrality Policy is a common problem on wikis (especially Wikipedia, in my personal opinion). Please let that not happen to the Citizendium—avoid endless edit wars by being familiar with and ruthlessly applying this policy in your writing.
