Mike was appointed earlier this year to be 'Wikipedian at Large' and has been travelling the country in that role.  In this interview we talk about his childhood, his PHD in giant flightless birds and their egg sizes, his work in museums over the years and his role now promoting Wikipedia and running seminars across the country on that.
