1. What is your name?

Maria Alexandra Orbe (Klavdia Perez in some webs through the internet.)

2. Tell us something about you, your background, and what you've been up to lately?

Complicated life. Medicine in awful countries.

3. How did you discover Everything, and how did you become a noder?

Through comments of a friend of mine who used to be a writer in E2. Also, I'm not sure, but I think I read some references about it in a newspaper, perhaps in the NYT.

4. What are your favorite writeups -- both your own and from other noders?

I am a woman who does not like assholes, The United States should not go to war with Iraq, Napoleon Bonaparte, What girls aren't taught and many more.

5. What are your favorite and least favorite memories from E2's history?

I don't know almost nothing about E2 history. As for my history in relation with E2 I remember a lot of troubles trying to assume some E2 policies (which seemed to be both discouraging and unjust when I was a beginner.) That history's a funny history now.

6. What keeps you coming back?

Nostalgia mainly.

7. What do you hope for E2's future?

'Softly, I will leave you softly, long before you miss me long before your arms beg me to stay for one more hour for one more day', in the way of Sinatra. Seriously, I don't think it'll be bad even though people is more an more reluctant to write.

8. What does E2 mean to you?

English training and testing different points of view about a lot of issues which differ from mine.

9. Who are your favorite noders? Which ones do you miss the most?

Tem42, drownzsurf, The Custodian, Matthew, agazade, Hatshepsut, Aresds, Lometa among a lot of people elsewhere. And I miss the most campion and sensei.

10. Who would play you in the Everything2 movie?

none ;P

11. Please fill in the blank: "E2 is to the Internet as ___ is to the world."

E2 is to the Internet as -growth- is to the world.

12. Any questions that I didn't ask that I should've?

Why didn't you ask me anything about Wikipedia?
