InterestsEdit

File:Library of Congress in front of Minerva.JPG

Currently, I am interested in articles about space law, DPRK (North Korea), feminism,[1] and the economics of high fashion and haute couture.

As of December 2013, I actively edited articles about DPRK (North Korea), feminism, and the economics of high fashion and haute couture.

As of July 2013, I actively edited articles about South America, taxation, economics, and business entities.

As of 2004, I was interested in discussions of DPRK (North Korea), Arabic, taxation, financial crimes, China, Japan, feminism, and business entities.[1]

I do my best to contribute to the articles with citations, editorial changes, and typographical fixes. After all, each editor "brings something different to the table, whether it be: researching skills, technical expertise, writing prowess or tidbits of information, but most importantly a willingness to help". Also, I am interested in the use of the number 11.

PhotographyEdit

I edited a photography textbook, The Art and Craft of Digital Photography by Professor Kristi Eisenberg. The photography book focused on several types of subjects, such as landscape, portrait, and design. Professor Eisenberg autographed her book with a special dedication to me.

I am Geraldshields11, the former volunteer Wikimedia DC event promotion coordinator, an EN Wikipedia editor since 2004, who has contributed photographs of notable monuments and notable people in Washington, DC, USA; Shenyang, China; and Dandong, China. Also, I have taken photographs of the waterfront of Sinuiju, North Korea on a quest to get a photograph of Ri Sol-ju.

I am a prolific but efficient user of Wikimedia Commons and my photographs are used across Wikis in different languages. One of my photographs is used across the same topic in 48 different languages. When I add a photograph to Wiki Commons, I added it with the realization that each photograph may only be seen by a small subset of people. But, if I can inspire at least one person into STEM or becoming a contributor, then "it is a far far better thing I do than ever before".

Some of my Wiki-inspired photographs have been used in the Business Insider magazine, US National Archives promotion material, London events, Wikimedia DC promotions on Twitter, Smithsonian Institute promotion material Secretary Presents E-book on Future of Museums near the end of the video, and events where “the Board wears nice clothing.” I worked at numerous GLAM projects as the photographer, as part of my volunteer duties at Wikimedia DC.

See the small sample photographic works, below, and various links for explanation.

To Err is Human; To Improve is WikipediaEdit

Like all humans, I make the odd but good faith mistake. If you are wishing to inform me of something that in your eyes I have done wrong, please contact me on my talk page, and I will gladly discuss. Let us make good articles with great cites.

Mighty Oaks From Little Acorns GrowEdit

Examples[1] of early variants of 'mighty oaks from little acorns grow' are found in:

Geoffrey Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde, 1374:

"as an ook cometh of a litel spyr" [a spyr, or spire, is a sapling]

Thomas Fuller's Gnomologia, 1732:

"The greatest Oaks have been little Acorns."

and in an essay by D. Everett in The Columbian Orator, 1797:

"Large streams from little fountains flow, Tall oaks from little acorns grow."

The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations states that 'great oaks from little acorns grow' is a 14th century proverb. Unfortunately, they don't include any details to support their view.

The 'mighty' version is known, in the USA at least, from the middle of the 19th century. It appeared in A. B. Johnson's The Philosophical Emperor, a Political Experiment, 1841.

North Korean subject articlesEdit

Dear Fellow Wikipedia Editors: I understand the concern that articles about North Korea are currently stub articles and I am taking appropriate action to solve the problem. North Korea is a secretive state, some information about govenrment officials, companies, and events is known from official North Korean media, other information has been reported in foreign media. So, any North Korean article will likely be stub class until a major change.

I am trying to use libary research, instead of just Google, to expand Wikipedia articles about a largely unknown country. I have found a source to expand the the North Korean articles at the Global Resources Center at the Gelman Library at George Washington University library.[1] If someone is reported in the paper newspaper in the DPRK, then that person is noteworthy.

For example, much of the information is from unnamed south Korean analysts reported in Western news sources. Even, the Ri Sol-ju, the wife of Kim Jong-un, article is lacking definative information because the DPRK sources are few.

Please give editors time to flesh out these articles. I am seeking consensus to increase understanding that stub articles about North Korea may be all that is possible. WikiProject Korea North Korea working group is a category I plan to work on. Please discuss. Geraldshields11 (talk) 00:24, 22 October 2012 (UTC)

List of inline templatesEdit

= Only part of it is superscripted.
‡‡ = Has a non-superscripted mode as well.
‡‡‡ = Only part of it is inline.
Superscripted

Noteworthy for features:

  • {{vague}} — has feature where optional parameter becomes the mouseover/tooltip message
Non-superscripted
  • While I try as far as possible to copy edit articles, this is not always achievable where the text is confusing or in need of content expertise. I am then forced to use a tag to attract such help for the article. Some useful tags are:

{{off-topic}} ~ {{Expert-verify}} ~ {{Expert-subject}} ~ {{contradict}} ~ {{confusing}} ~ {{refimprove}} ~ {{nofootnotes}} ~ {{notability}} ~ {{original research}} ~ {{crystal}} ~ {{POV}} ~ {{unreferenced}}
