We're all in this together. It will help to learn more about KDE of
course. But this is a community where it's not necessary to be a one
man band. We are symphonic.

That's great. It seemed like quite a burden for you to assume. High
praises for even considering doing it.

I don't know about wiki pages...Jos, Stu and Lydia blog. Their writing
shows up on PlanetKDE.org. Or Google them...world famous people. Jeff
doesn't blog as much. He works on Amarok and www.tomahawk-player.org/.
All of us participate in KDE Promo...and all of the people I mentioned
know much more about KDE than I do.
