Asaf Bartov

Asaf has been a practicing (volunteer) Wikipedian for many years; his home wiki is the Hebrew Wikipedia, but he is also active in Wikidata and the Wikimedia Commons, and he makes occasional contributions on the English Wikipedia as well, all under his volunteer account. He has a strong background in software engineering, and an abiding interest in literature, education, open access, linked data, classics, and library science. Because people consistently mistake his last name to be Russian, he wishes to clarify it is in fact 100% Hebrew.
