Registered on Appropedia on 26 June 2006.

I'm an Australian engineer with a passion for sharing knowledge to make a better world, and I've been involved in Appropedia since the very early days. I spend most of my time in Asia, especially Indonesia.

What I'm doing here

I'm an admin on Appropedia, and I help to...

Specific tasks I'm focused on now:

  • Finding funding
  • Ekopedia merger
  • Porting - esp finding help in converting appropriate PDF documents and web pages to MediaWiki markup.


My favorite videos (on appropriate technology etc) are on my Youtube homepage.

Contact me via my talk page, or try me on instant messenger:

Microblogging: Identi.ca & Twitter

Follow me on Identi.ca, an open source microblogging service that gives you more freedom than Twitter (and also lets you link to Twitter). But I use the same usernames on Twitter:

I manage Appropedia's Identica account and Twitter account, and my personal Identica account and Twitter account. Below are the Twitter feeds:

Wikiholism alert
"My username is Chriswaterguy and I am a wikiholic.W"
  • I cancelled my plans to live and work in China when I learnt they blocked Wikipedia.
  • I often read (non-fiction) books and mark things that I want to put into Wikipedia.
  • I'm a registered user of about 15 wikis.

Yes I'm an addict. No, it's not a problem. I'm going to take a break, just as soon as I finish editing this...

Maybe I need a 12 step programW...

  1. We admitted we were powerlessW over wiki-editing and our lives had become unmanageable.
  2. Came to believeW that a power greater than ourselvesW could restore us to sanityW.
  3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood HimW/HerW/ItW/Them.W
  4. When that failed, we took responsibility for our own actions.
  5. Admitted the Wexact nature of our wrongs.
  6. Left the computer occasionally, in order to meet attractive people and flirt with them.
  7. Sought through prayerW and meditationW to improve our conscious contact Wwith God as we understood Her,W praying only for Wknowledge of Her will for usW and the powerW to carry that out.
  8. Having had a spiritual awakeningW as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this messageW to wikiholics.W
  9. Realised the irony of creating this notice.
  10. Learnt to count.
