I'm a Software Engineer at the Wikimedia Foundation, and so of course my personal website is a wiki (running on MediaWiki). In my spare time I volunteer with WikiClubWest to work on Wikimedia projects, mostly around my family's genealogy and local Western Australian history (especially to do with Fremantle). I try to keep up with issues on all the things I maintain.
To contact me, you can email me or find me on Twitter or the Freenode IRC network (as 'samwilson'). If you want to edit any of this site, you need to know the secret code 'preservation' (it's not very secret).
