Note to self, note to others:
I'm currently the Lead Software Architect for the Wikimedia Foundation. I've been around for a while.
- I make no guarantees that things I write have any positive or negative relation to do with any company or person who might pay me; I am a human being with free will and will write on any subject I please within the confines of reasonableness.
Please report bugs to https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/ to make sure we see them!
You can usually find me directly during the day on Wikimedia's IRC channels, especially #wikimedia-dev.
