I'm a writer and programmer-for-pleasure, originally from San Francisco, now living in Montreal. I'm one of the co-founders of Wikitravel, and I'm passionate -- yea, fanatical -- about Open Content, Free Software, and Free Culture.
I'm also one of the developers on the MediaWiki software that runs this site. I think it looks great, by the way.
My page on Wikitravel: http://www.wikitravel.org/en/article/User:Evan .
One bit of advice: please, don't ghettoize this wiki!
