I take my travel philosophy from the Tim Exile song Family Galaxy:
I've been away for so long that I've ended up right back home, Amongst the family galaxy of nothing that stays the same. I'm in the family galaxy and we only have one rule: Keep changing every day, don't stay the same or you'll be a fool! The family galaxy keeps changing no matter what you do. We don't know who we are, but we will always be here for you!
I see wikitravel as an incarnation of that family galaxy, the connection of all the people who close their eye while wandering streets and want to feel with those others worldwide who also close their eyes and wonder who else is wandering.
Beside backpacking and updating where I can using my half-completed English degree, I could also provide assistance using my fully-completed Maths degree.
