Richard C.S. "Doc" KinneEdit

Doc Kinne in his Library, April, 2002


I am Richard "Doc" Kinne. I live in East Somerville, MA. I am an Astronomical Technologist with great interest in Linux computer operating systems and variable star research.

I live with cat, Castor, and my boyfriend, Morgan, in Norfolk Flat, a small, pinkish duplex.


High School was spent at Rome (NY) Catholic High. I was semi active in the newspaper and yearbook.

Undergraduate years were spent at SUNY Oswego in NY where my major was Computer Science with a minor in Astronomy. I was active in the local TV media, WTOP-TV Ch. 10, as weather reporter, then weather director, and a Board member.

Graduate school was virtually done in Melbourne, AUS at Swinburne Technical University where I received a MSc. in Astronomy.

Current ActivitiesEdit

Wiki CareerEdit

I first began doing a bit of edits with Vikipedio, the Esperanto version of Wikipedia a few years ago. From there I moved to Wikipedia. I spent a bit of time involved in Wikinews starting in November, 2006 after seeing and being very impressed with Good Night, and Good Luck. Hey, everyone needs an inspiration.

The BlogEdit

The Wiki Projects have a strict policy of a neutral point of view, and in this context NPOV is a wise, wise policy. However, as a human being, I have a hell of a lot of opinions. You can read them here on my LiveJournal.
