yup. (me at Wikimania 2012)

Hello! My name is Phoebe Ayers. See en.wp for bio, etc.

Big Sur, CA -- from a trip with my father. I tried to show him how to upload his pictures, like this one. But I think this is his only Wikimedia contribution to date.

Things I do around here:[edit]

Trustee[edit]

I am a current member of the Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation. I served one term from 2010-2012 as selected by the chapters, and then was re-elected by the community to a second term from 2013-2015.

The Board is responsible for governing the Wikimedia Foundation, which in turn is responsible for providing the infrastructure to keep Commons and other Wikimedia wikis running.

Unless explicitly stated otherwise, I make edits on this wiki and on Wikipedia as a regular community member, rather than as a trustee.

Community member[edit]

  • Editor on en.wp (and sometimes es.wp) since August 2003
  • Occasional editor on Commons, as well as Wikidata and Wikivoyage, and sometimes other projects
  • sometimes I add photos, but more often I categorize them :) I am not a terribly visual person, but I do like to be organized.

Researcher and educator[edit]

  • I am interested in Wikipedia research, and I often give talks about the Wikimedia projects. See en.wp for more.

Conferences[edit]

  • I have been very involved in Wikimania, and other events, for a long time. See en.wp for more.

Author[edit]

And the rest of the time...[edit]

In my day job, I am a physical sciences and engineering librarian at UC Davis. I am excited for the possibilities of collaborations between GLAMs, especially libraries and archives, and Commons.


Some things I care about:[edit]

  • Community governance
  • Meetups
  • free content
  • good references


Things that are always welcome: coffee, good ideas, enthusiasm
