I joined this wiki in 2007 and was around intermittently for many years. When Citizendium considered closing down in mid 2020, I returned after a long hiatus and took ownership of the domain to help the project continue, in honor of the past great efforts by Larry, Anthony, Milt, Norman, Ro and others, and the continuing efforts of John S. and the many technical staff who've helped in the past. The sense of community possible here was especially valuable during the COVID-19 shutdowns--and I value it all the time.
My interests in this wiki are as often personal as professional, and wide ranging. On the academic side:
- M. A. in public sector management (Fels Center, Univ. of Penn., 1992)
- M. S. in computer science (Univ. of Tenn., 1983)
- academic work towards a Ph. D. (not completed) in Germanic linguistics and literature, 1975-1976, Univ. of Tenn.
- B. A. in liberal arts (Univ. of Tenn., 1974); my major was English, with a minor in German
