By way of introduction
I guess this my current source page until otherwise, as it is hard to know where to put personal data in the wiki-sphere.

I accept that collaboration in the wiki-sphere is really at the level of the wiki and rarely at the level of the data, so I expect to do this work solo with a little encouragement, and perhaps a few hassles, which is not a problem.
