My name is Gero Scholz and I am a German IT professional.
I have been developing a wiki-like system (GREP = Generic REPpository) for some time and I try to integrate the best ideas of that system into Mediawiki.
The main difference between GREP and Mediawiki is a strong typing concept which makes the definition of semantic relations easier (RDF, semantic web,etc.).
Regarding my general interest in algorithms, please see my German Wikipedia User Page.
