about me

Hi there!

Ohai! I’m Sage Ross. I’m a Wikipedian and a father of two. I build software for Wiki Education, 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, our dog Ember, and our cat Galileo, 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.

  2. 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.

  3. My sweetest Sage,

    Please, find time between your remarkable endeavors to bring yourself back to a video you made in 2010 for the Wikipedia article on “blowing a raspberry.” Before today, I was ignorant, although not blissful, that such an act had a title. In casual conversation with a dear friend of mine, I was directed towards that fated article.

    It is not the kindness of my soul that has changed me in such a way, but the beautifully overwhelming magnificence of your actions. For this, I long to tell you how much that video meant to me. However, I do not possess words of the appropriate magnitude. All that comes to mind is raw emotion that continues to burst through dams of my soul with each thought.

    For you, your video, and the acquisition of knowledge I am eternally grateful. Thank you. If I could, I would repeat my much too simple thanks until my death, halting only to your command.

    Sage Ross, you have saved me.

  4. I found your work via the babbling baby video. I love it,but am also interested in your academic and cultural work.Hope that blessed baby is doing well.Thank you for your endeavors!
