I am James Hare, also called "Harej". I have been a contributor to Wikimedia projects, principally Wikipedia and Wikidata, since 2004. I co-founded Wikimedia District of Columbia in 2011 and served on its board of directors until 2018. I worked as a grantee of the Wikimedia Foundation, working on software design and research, and as a consultant to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (a division of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) on Wikimedia engagement and contribution. I worked as a contractor and then employee of the Wikimedia Foundation from January 2018 to August 2019.

I currently work as a consultant to the Internet Archive on InternetArchiveBot (fixing dead outgoing links and improving references) and Wikidata outreach/integration. Earlier in 2020 I worked on Covid19Relay, a wiki for coordination during the COVID-19 pandemic, but discontinued the project due to low interest.
