I am a Swede living in southern Stockholm and I was born 1948.
I have been working with IT since 1968 och been employed as a consultant and from 1974 at Ericsson for many years as senior manager of a telecom software development unit. I am now retired and active in many local non profit organisations.
I was between 2012 and 2014 a member of the Funds Dissemination Committee as its secretary for the first year. I am a former treasurer in Wikimedia Sverige, former member of Chapters committee and former member of Audit committee.
I have made 215 000 edits om sv:wp and spend several hours a day writing articles. I am an administrator and active as a contributor under the nickname user Yger
I believe the power in the Wikimedia Foundations projects will change the world in a positive way.
I also believe it is necessary for this potential to evolve, that strong Local Chapters exist in order to create cooperation between all the different actors in the local society. I also believe it is important that the power and dynamicity in the user community must be encouraged and that the activities from the local chapters must support and complement the local community and never impede or double up what the community can do by themselves
