Hello! My name is Phoebe Ayers. My main wikis are en:wp and Meta.

Talk to me: leave a message | phoebe dot ayers at gmail dot com | wikimatrix of my accounts

also often on IRC, AIM, etc as brassratgirl


See w:en:user:Phoebe for bio, etc.

By day, I'm an academic reference librarian in a sciences library, where I am an action figure wanna-be.

Things I do around here:

Community member

  • Editor on en:wp since August 2003
  • Writer for the English Wikipedia Signpost
  • Current maintainer of the List Summary Service for Foundation-l
  • Organizer of the San Francisco Bay meetup group; current mailing list admin for that group
  • Wikimania and events organizer (see "Conferences")
  • I was a member of the now-defunct m:Special Projects Committee (beginning May 2006).

Researcher and educator

  • I'm interested in and participate in Wikipedia and wiki research. I presented a short paper at Wikimania 2005; recently completed a literature review of ongoing research that will be presented at ASIST'06; and helped with a hugely successful research BoF at Wikimania '06.
  • Finally, I give general presentations about wikis and Wikipedia to various groups, particularly librarians. An occasionally updated list may be found here. A handout I developed for librarians may be found. I am happy to share slides, notes, and thoughts on what works & what doesn't.
