I was recently reading a blog post in response to one of my posts and noticed that the author used my wikipedia entry as the primary resource to figure out who I am. The only problem with that is my Wikipedia entry is pretty outdated and quite scanty. Since it is poor form to edit your own Wikipedia entry I am at a quandary.

My resume is slightly more up to date, it is primarily missing descriptions of the stuff I worked on at Microsoft last year. Thus I saw two choices. I could either change the “About Me” link on my blog to point to my resume or I could implore some kind soul in my readership to update my entry in Wikipeda. I decided to start with the latter and if that doesn’t work out, I’ll be updating the “About Me” link to point to my resume.

Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to update my Wikipedia entry (not vandalize it Smile ).

Some quick advice: be very, very careful. Wikipedia is extremely selective as to when and where it will allow anyone -- even people who aren't you -- to use your own writings or publications as sources for who you are and what you do.

I believe it is appropriate wikibehavior to edit the talk page associated with your reference page; you can add least add your updates there.

I tried to play it straight but couldn't. Sorry. :(

:) nice one. I think you should rather update your resume rather than depend on Wikipedia, coz as the last commenter pointed, what if you were said to be a basket-ball player.
