I'm Brian McNeil on all projects, but my home project is the English Wikinews where I'm a 'crat, and accredited reporter. I've contributed approximately 10% of that project's Featured content and have a keen interest in Original Reporting. I'm based in the city of Edinburgh and keen to see a "Scottish branch" of WikiMedia UK established.

In relation to GLAM issues, I'd be particularly interested in covering museum, gallery, and exhibition openings in the Central Scotland area. I'd ideally see that as being one or more interview segments with curator(s), a tour of the exhibition, and collecting low-to-mid resolution images of exhibits (2M-pixel camera phone). Since Wikinews articles are subject to independent peer-review, it is deemed a reliable source; thus, any such article on Wikinews may be used as a source for Wikipedia.
