I founded the MediaWiki consulting company WikiWorks, and the MediaWiki- and Semantic MediaWiki-based wiki hosting site Referata. I was formerly a significant contributor to the SMW Project. I've written over 15 MediaWiki extensions so far, some of them Semantic MediaWiki extensions. My best-known extension is Page Forms. You can read more at my mediawiki.org user page.
