My current project here is Wikipedian in Residence/Ladd Observatory
My Freenode irc nick and cloak is
Bricks and Mortar
I am the Curator of the historic Ladd Observatory  and a Visiting Scholar at Brown University. My research focus is the history of science and technology, in particular late 19th century astronomy and horology.
In my spare time I contribute to computer history articles on Wikipedia and upload images to Commons:Category:Retro-Computing_Society_of_Rhode_Island.
