About Crtew (a.k.a. "Sir Tew")
I'm not really a "Sir" in the royal sense, but it adds a pronunciation to my clunky User name!

For more about me, please view my main page at User:Crtew on Wikipedia. I also have site specific pages on the Outreach project at MetaWiki and on Wikimedia Commons.

This page tracks news or projects that interests me, such as journalism or reporting about human rights issues.

I subscribe to the "Politics and conflict" category, but I like to read obituaries and keep track of new techologies.
