Wikinews/wikipedia updates

Wikonews one year old! The wikians (wikinews contributors in English, Polish, Swedish, and Dutch) interview Jimmy Wales about the state of the wiki.

Brian Chase of Nashville, TN confessed that he was the wiki-hoaxer who wrote the notorious changes to the John Seigenthaler bio. He immediately had his own Wiki-bio added. Katharine Steelye’s New York Times article in Today’s paper is one of the best sources on the details and the characters involved.

Stirred up over Stir up Sunday

Paul, · Categories: Alumni and other friends, Amusements, General

Amongst American Episcopalians, this is Stir Up Sunday (see last year’s post). Others hold that Stir Up Sunday is the first Sunday before Advent, but we go with the American Prayer Book (the Commonality of the Book of Common Prayer is only national).
We are all astir as this is a very busy season for the North Carolina Boys Choir. Tucker and the Choir were in Raleigh singing the Service in Lessons and Carols at Saint David’s while Sally and I made the rounds to various School parties.
The Boys Choir big Christmas Concert is Monday, December 19th at 7:30 at Duke University Chapel.
