Hello, I am Samuel Klein, wikipedian, linguaphile, and
inclusionist. I am currently working on a national digital library, and at a "purpose of the Internet" research group. I recently directed outreach and community content for a global education project. I am a trustee of the Wikimedia Foundation.
Currently working on
Matchery to help groups improving the open Internet find legal help in all jurisdictions. My writing background consists of a few journals and newsletters, doggerel on the back of exams, broadsheets on telephone poles, philosophical essays, and marked-up drafts of [others'] texts in red and blue. My academic background includes physics, mathematics, algorithms and language. In the Wikiverse: you can find me on the English Wikipedia, and occasionally on Wikibooks, Wiktionary (see also mod-wiktionary), the OLPC wiki, and some smaller language wikis: Nahuatl and Swahili. Currently taking collab notes on Hypothesis XXX - synchrony across annotation systems for all sorts of knowledge (e.g., via hypothes.is and open annotation).

The Dao of Wiki * Quirks of int'l grantmaking
Resolved, that ...
WMPH - why did these stop being shared on Meta? Cross-wiki links needed.
I am thinking of ways to
improve key sites:
Wikimedia website (, Main, Fundraising, GFDL) http://www.wikimedia.org redirection page improve key meta pages:
( Goings-on t), ( Meta:Babel t, Interorg relations.) move
meta-discussions to meta:, from en: and other subprojects. improve community:
/ multilingualism translation across WM, nuanced interactions with new users, playful
trolls, nascent vandals, non-editor readers; article validation meshed ideas, empirics, and [pre]conceived notions relating to
community infrastruture, vision-building,
interaction, insight and insanity, ... unify discussion:
within power structures WM and across WP-instances ( covering ) Ver ein/ Wreader and es: split issues as well as the mundane help propose new projects:
Wikifamily, Wikinews, Pa/Pr/Fu, Media, Prufing, Review... design a few
feature improvements help people who
reuse wikimedia content recognize the projects the content came from help others and future selves
see what I see share
test writing and wiki work
