about me

Hi there!

Hi there!

Ohai! I’m Sage Ross. I’m a Wikipedian and a father of two. I work for the Wiki Education Foundation, a nonprofit that helps bring together the worlds of academia and Wikimedia projects.

In the past, I’ve been a graduate student in the History of Science and Medicine program at Yale. At last check, I was all-but-dissertation and writing my thesis on the history of molecular evolution, the intersection of the two great metanarratives of modern biology (evolution and the molecular vision of life). After that, I spent a few years working for the Wikimedia Foundation.

I live with my wife Faith, our son Brighton, our daughter Everly in Seattle, Washington. I’ve been an active Wikimedian since 2006, and served as editor of The Wikipedia Signpost from January 2009 to June 2010. Beyond history and wikis, my interests include lolcats, the free culture movement, free software, science fiction, photography, bonsai, and progressive politics.

    I very much enjoyed your blog. I am working on a book-blog of my own, which can be seen at [one word] theoryofirony.com, then clicking on either the “sample chapter” or “blog” buttons at the top. My Rube Goldberg contraption of a brain processes the world with an odd, well-caffeinated kind of logic: Why is there an inverse proportion between the size of the print and the importance of the message? History. Literature. Art. Science. Religion. I call this eccentric thinking the Theory of Irony and if your busy schedule permits, why not give a read, leave a comment or create a link?

    P.S. Sorry if this seems like spam, but it was written by a real live history junkie.
