I have a Wikipedia entry

While Googling for any new information about myself on the Internet (in case I want to work for Barack Obama - see earlier post), I came across my own Wikipedia entry.

As I have no idea how it got there, I am quite chuffed, although I wonder if it is an accurate statement of my body of work:

Terry Flew is an associate Professor of Media and Communication in the Creative Industries faculty at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia. He has authored the books Games: Technology, Industry, Culture (2005) and Understanding Global Media (2007). He is primarily known for these publications, which centre on a new participatory culture that has risen in the media sphere. This book provides an overview of global media production and circulation using the perspectives of politics, political economy, media and cultural studies, and creative industries. Terry Flew also explores how the industries and their audiences function on an international scale.
Now for the next question: do I edit my own entry?

Terry, editing one's own entry is generally a little bit frowned upon, with the exception of correcting outright factual errors or unsourced criticism (which the Wikipedia is now very sensitive about fixing promptly).

I'd suggest you leave a comment on the article's talk page if you believe that the article could be improved.

Thanks Robert. The statements are all accurate, just not really what I thought my main contributions to knowledge were, but there you go.
