I can be reached by email at fredbaud at fairpoint. I have been an active editor on Wikipedia since but decided that substantial improvements could be made and started Wikinfo. I hope others will also find a separate project worthwhile. I continue to edit Wikipedia and have some administrative responsibilities. I will insist that Wikinfo's founding principles be followed, but, in general, editors are free to contribute to policy discussions.
I have an undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Colorado, earned in the days when behaviorism advocates were in control of instruction, with a minor in sociology. Probably my most vivid undergraduate experience was a brief introduction to sociology of knowledge. My legal education was at night school at the University of Denver. I have read widely in almost every imaginable area of interest and continue those wide ranging interests here.
