That's "wiki" not "wicca"

It's amazing how many people have asked me whether "wiki" had anything to do with witchcraft! I was talking up my wiki project with the Dean yesterday - at my "performance review" - and even she did something of a double take, having never even heard of the wikipedia. I soon set her straight, though. I'm so thrilled with how well this project is going in my lit class - they are moving in and taking ownership of it. Someone said in class today that it was "awesome" - high praise! When I looked in on the weekend, they had put their names on it: "this wiki is being built and maintained by students of Camosun College, Victoria, B.C. Canada"

  • RIP Ray Bradbury

    I wanted to write something about Ray Bradbury

  • The Weakness in Me

    Robinson's death has hit me hard. Also, the general feeling of doglessness. I haven't been without a dog, except for when on holiday, for eighteen…

  • Profound Gifts

    My tribute to Robinson, blogged elsewhere.
