I am Andy Mabbett from Birmingham, England. You can find me via http://pigsonthewing.org.uk or:
Having programmed machines with paper tape and punched cards (at a very young age!), I'm glad to see things have moved on a little. I gave up programming many years ago, and was involved in the design and management of pioneering, large-scale websites in the UK's public sector from 1994-2011. Since then, I've been a freelance consultant and Wikimedian in Residence, helping organisations to run Wikipedia-related projects, and some involving OSM. I've taught OSM as part of courses at two UK universities, and spoken about it at State of the Map (2013), at State of the Map US (2015), at Wikimania (2014) and other conferences. I delivered OSM training to staff at the UK Parliament and the Open Data Institute.
I am also a published author and journalist - but (as anyone who's corrected my 'typos' will tell you) I can't type.
I live in Birmingham, England. My preferred tool for editing OSM is JOSM, but I also use some Android apps.
Web for all
I believe strongly in adherence to web standards, making web pages as accessible as possible, to everyone, and that it's important to communicate using the simplest language necessary, to convey ideas clearly.
In 2013 started a project, to tag OSM entities with Wikipedia links/ Wikidata IDs.
I'm very keen on adding links to other data sources, particularly those offering linked, open data, to OSM. Key to these are Wikipedia and Wikidata. To that effect, I added and to and started the RfC on a Wikidata tag.
