This idea was prompted by a discussion on another forum where Richard Long's name came up and the the other guy hadnt heard of him... Doing a search I realized that there doesnt seem to be a reliable link to a good concise bio about Mr Long.
I checked in the Wikipedia online Encyclopedia, but he is not listed in there yet.
Based on the fact that what what I DO know about Richard Long was learnt primarily from this forum, I want to suggest that the board members here collectively write a short and authoritive bio for the Wikipedia.
It seems fitting that someone so hugely influential and almost the "Patron Saint" of this board needs a clear no-nonsense bio for all to read. And the
Wikipedia seems like the perfect place for it!
