Like George, I'm local and have a long Wikipedia resume (~6 years). I've always enjoyed talking about Wikipedia and don't get enough opportunities to do that, so this could be fun.
On site I've often gravitated towards policy issues, though I tend not to dip too deeply into dispute resolution / arbitration most of the time, so there may well be better people to choose. Anyway, I'm happy to discuss it. -Robert Rohde On Mon, Jul 6, 2009 at 3:00 PM, George Herbert<george.herb...@gmail.com> wrote: > On Mon, Jul 6, 2009 at 2:27 PM, Sheila > Purcell<spurc...@sanmateocourt.org> wrote: >> Thank you Michael and all- >> >> I am happy to speak by phone with anyone who may wonder what this is about >> before they offer to help further.
