Could use some help with the draft WikiPedia article _Dean Cameron Allen_.

The guidance I've received from WikiPedia editors is that more,
arms-length and verifiable sources/references are needed to
demonstrate notability. Perhaps some mention of favrd, citation of
AListApart articles, Joyent press releases, etc. Also, WikiPedia is
fussy about photography rights, so anyone with unambiguous ownership
of useful photos can be very helpful here.

Please contribute. I'm optimistic that a dca article will be approved
once there's more meat on its bones and it has multiple contributors.
