It is my pleasure to introduce our newest Wikimedia Community Fellow of 2012, Peter Coombe. As a fellow, Pete will be working with the community to improve help documentation on English Wikipedia. He’ll be leading a 6 month effort and taking a data-driven approach to reorganize and rewrite key help pages in order to make them more usable for new and experienced editors alike.
Pete comes to the fellowships program with an impressive resume. He’s been editing English Wikipedia as The wub<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:The_wub>since 2005, he’s an admin with over 75,000 global edits, and an active member of Wikimedia UK. Pete volunteered on the Social Media Team in the 2010 Fundraiser, and worked as a Production Coordinator in 2011. He’s got a B.A. and M.Sci. with honors in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge, and much experience breaking down complex topics into clear written information. He’s participated twice in a program at Cambridge to create online teaching and learning modules on advanced materials science and engineering topics. He’s also worked at The Helpful Book Company, publishing books that teach senior citizens how to use computers. Pete’s talent for making the complex seem simple, combined with his experience A/B testing in the fundraiser and 7 years editing Wikipedia, make him a great fit for his fellowship project.
