Wikipedia is first and foremost an effort to create and distribute a free encyclopedia of the highest possible quality to every single person on the planet in their own language. Asking whether the community comes before or after this goal is really asking the wrong question: the entire purpose of the community is precisely this goal. Jimmy Wales, March 8, 2005
My name is Konstantinos Stampoulis aka Geraki. Wikipedia user since 2003. Out of Wikimedia I also contribute to OpenStreetMap, translate free software applications, and I am a member of Open Knowledge Foundation Greece and GreekLUG. I have a wife and three kids, study European Civilization at the Hellenic Open University, and I am a professional firefighter. You can find about me at geraki.gr.
I am a 100wikidays survivor, but also a gadget creator and bot owner.
Most of my outreach activities are around the Wikipedia Education Program, in several departments in the University of Thessaloniki, some GLAM related activities (e.g Thesswiki, and organizing the first Science Photo Competition, Wiki Loves Earth, and Wiki Loves Monuments contests in Greece.
