I drive to college with Jeremy Wales three days a week. You might remember him from such driving to college adventures as “crossing a raging torrent“… So, after posting about wikipedia editing just then I was inspired to create a Wikipedia entry for him. Apparently it has been done before but he was considered “not noteworthy.” I’m hoping that will have changed.
Here’s what I’ve said:
Jeremy Nicholas Wales (born July 24, 1978) is an intellectual polymath from Brisbane, Australia. After completing his studies in Information Technology at the University of Queensland, Jeremy enjoyed a short but distinguished career with one of Queensland’s leading financial institutions.
Jeremy is famous for having read every theological book and idea in existence. He has become a notable figure on the Brisbane evangelical preaching scene – sharing the pulpit at Mitchelton Presbyterian Church on more than one occasion. The audio of his sermons reveal him to be a bold and daring speaker destined for great things. Some have called him the Australian Stephen Fry others have compared his exploits to those of fictional wizard Harry Potter.
He is also a bold and experienced on-road rally car driver – videos of his exploits behind the wheel in the streets of Brisbane have become a phenomenon on YouTube.
Feel free to contribute. I made his birthday up.
