About me

I have been a practicing (volunteer) Wikipedian for many years; my home wiki is the Hebrew Wikipedia, but I make occasional contributions on the English Wikipedia as well. I have a strong background in software engineering, and an abiding interest in literature, education, open access, linked data, and library science.

As an unpaid volunteer, I am a founding editor of Project Ben-Yehuda and a teacher of classical Greek and Latin. I used to serve on the board of Wikimedia Israel.

My work

I am working on increasing reach (readers) and participation (editors) in the developing world, through community support as well as partnerships with other NGOs and governments.

Disclaimer: I work for the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I intend to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
