Bryan Derksen is a Wikipedia article editor who has become somewhat hooked by Wikipedia. His areas of interest and/or expertise include biology, computer science, astronomy, science fiction, and a scattering of all kinds of other stuff with little apparent connection. He has Bachelors in genetics and computer science. He first started editing on July 28 2001 (the Actaeon article, to be precise). He gained sysop status in April 2002.
He apparently hit the big time in March of 2005 when Wired Magazine mentioned him in no less than two articles, one of them dead-tree: The Book Stops Here, Wiki Becomes a Way of Life. This will no doubt give him a swelled head and result in a meteoric rise to fame, followed by a descent into obscurity and madness. Watch this space for updates.
On April 22 2005 he noticed that he had reached first place on Wikipedia:List of Wikipedians by number of edits (bested only by Rambot and D6, both bots). W00t! He has sworn to use his new position of prominence wisely, possibly spinning it off into a movie career.
Alas, this was not to be as he discovered on August 5 that the young whippersnapper User:SimonP had surpassed him in edits. He gave the new star editor some sage advice on dealing with fame, while secretly beginning a quest to destroy the usurper forever.
