As you might have guessed, I am interested in Austrian Economics and economic history. I am also interested in other things and have read quite a few books on many a topic (long live generality!). I work hard, when I'm not goofing off and I like animals. Most of them.
- I am the creator of the Austrian Economics Wiki (now closed), which became the foundation of the Mises Wiki.
- If you are looking for obscure topics on economics and history, particularly of the Austrian bent, try the "Economic Resources and Books". It is a customized search engine and it may give you better results than a general search.

- If anybody needs to enter large numbers of similar references, consider using this Greasemonkey script. Use this script for daily articles and blog entries from Mises.org (now also supports the Circle Bastiat blog).
- Preferably working on: MisesWiki:WikiProject Economic History, Calls to Action, other stuff or this stuff - anything in fact.

Have fun contributing to the wiki,
- April 23, 2009 - first edit on Austrian Economics Wiki
- August 1, 2010 - over 100 articles on AEW ( + 1 year 3 months)
- October 6, 2010 - over 300 articles after all countries were added (+ 2 months)
- November 5, 2010 - migration to Mises Wiki (+ 1 month)
- March 3, 2011 - 600 articles reached (+ 4 months)
- January 30, 2012 - 1000 articles reached (+ 11 months)
So in a third of time a highly active community produced about three times as much content, if only article count is concerned. There's more to it than simple count, but...
...not bad at all. :)
Then, it took almost a year to get to one thousand. Things have predictably slowed down. Let's hope there shall be more!
