Hi, I'm Barry Desborough.

I started the Wikids and Wikidia pages. I'm a retired schoolteacher and software engineer. As soon as I can spare the time, I'll tell you a bit more about myself.

I'm British, but I've moved to France in my retirement. Anyone communicating with me, please bear in mind any turnaround delays due to time-zone differences.

My specialist teaching subject was mathematics, but I started this project on the subject of biology, because debating it with people on the net revealed a big deficit in people's understanding. I've created a separate space, mathepedia to put up some material that has arisen from tutoring a teenager in mathematics. It is material that can be worked on and eventually incorporated into the the main project. (It's so easy with wikispaces - just put the material up and it can be re-used and improved upon!)
