I'm Mark Jaroski, a software developer living in [[Lausanne]], [[Switzerland]], and working (as a sysadmin) at the [http://www.who.int World Health Organization] in [[Geneva]].
I was born in [[Carbondale]], [[Illinois]] in 1968 and lived there or nearby for my first 24 years.  Since then I've lived in [[Chicago]], [[San Francisco]], [[Geneva]] and [[Lausanne]] and for a short 3 months in [[Amsterdam]].

I'm on the Docent list for all of the places I've lived above.  Drop me a line here or by email if you need more info than is available in the article for the destination you are visiting.

I've been making maps for Wikitravel for about 6 months, and have been trying to work out a consistant graphics style for Wikitravel destination maps which should be easy for others to use if they wish to.  I started with Paris in part at least because I was there when I first started the map-making project.  You can see a full list of maps and some of the reasoning on my [[User:Mark/Maps|Map page]].
[[User:Mark/WWW-Mediawiki-Client]] is a perl library which provides a client API for the Mediawiki software.  It comes with a script called '''mvs''' which allows one to edit a Mediawiki site using a normal text editor and commit changes and get updates from the command line, very much like '''cvs'''.
I've visited a number of places (other than the places where I've actually lived), and may or may not have something interesting to contribute about them.  If you've got a trip to one of these planned, bug me and I'll put some time into the article.
