About me

I've been a Wikimedian since 2004. I've mainly been active on Swedish Wikipedia, but also done a fair number of edits on English Wikipedia and Commons, as well as written the odd article on a dozen other Wikipedias and dabbled in editing on a number of the sister projects.

My volunteer account is Julle. If I do any content edits logged in here I probably meant to do it from that account. My apologies.

I live in Malmö, Sweden. I pronounce my name like this.

Short personal essays

My work

One of the ways the Wikimedia Foundation tries to involve the communities in the software development process is to partner with specific wikis who are willing to try out a new product as it's being developed, making sure that we tailor it to their needs so that the tools we build reflect the Wikimedia editors' workflows. I manage the Product Ambassador program, our way of being able to communicate with these wikis in their language and to understand the specifics of the local communities.

In general, I work with the technical development of the Wikimedia wikis as part of Movement Communications. I try to make sure the communities and different technical teams at the Foundation understand each other and that we can get the information we need from the Wikimedia communities to prioritize the things that will help the communities the most.

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
