Brilliant presense on Wikipedia - but not so hot on OSM. Can you help?
We founded a UK Charity

Victuallers name is Roger Bamkin. I'm a newbie on OSM. I'm also a wikipedian administrator who is a director of Wikimedia UK, Victuallers Ltd, co-creator of QRpedia and heavily involved with MonmouthpediA at present. My background is in [http://scholar.google.co.uk/scholar?hl=en&q=bamkin+r+-Kavanagh&btnG=Search&as_sdt=2000&as_ylo=&as_vis=0 relational databases although I have dabbled in artificial intelligence, material science and engineering. Actually I've dabbled in quite a few things so that is why I probably like Wikipedia. I'm passionate about sharing information and I believe we are making a difference.

I spoke at the GLAM WIKI conference in November 2010 (presentation) and in Bristol at the Wiki Academy and the 2011 Wikimedia UK AGM. I was a Wikipedian in Residence with Derby Museum during their their partnership with Wikimedia U.K.. I co-invented QRpedia codes and I was running "The Wright Challenge" with Andrew Dalby. (See video). I've spoken in Haifa, Bristol, London, Berlin, Vienna and Lillehammer concerning Wikimedia UK this year. I'm currently involved with the exciting project MonmouthpediA which links Wikipedia with the people of Monmouth. I have worked, and do work, as a consultant on project management and I.T. relasted issues.
