The Sidewalk Owls of the Bay Area – This Tiny Western Screech Owl Lives Just Above Your Heads – A Great PhotoWednesday, March 13th, 2013
“A pair of little owls (Western Screech Owl) were in a hole in a live oak tree that hangs over a quiet street in the SF Bay Area. Very cool seeing them in a quiet urban situation, cars drove right under the hollow branch at a steady residential pace. Shortly after sunset, one owl stood near the edge for a moment before flying away, allowing me to photograph it. “

How Can You Say No to Wikipedia Founder Jimmy Wales? Just Try It! Try Looking Into His Eyes and Then Saying NoMonday, November 15th, 2010
All right, here take $50, Jimbo.
To speak is a sin/ you look first then stare:
Or, in other words, from TroyMcClureSF:
“Jimmy Wales’ eyes reach further and further into my soul every year.”
All right, here, take another $100, just make it stop.

“I got a lot of funny looks ten years ago when I started talking to people about Wikipedia.
Let’s just say some people were skeptical of the notion that volunteers from all across the world could come together to create a remarkable pool of human knowledge – all for the simple purpose of sharing.
No ads. No agenda. No strings attached.
A decade after its founding, nearly 400 million people use Wikipedia and its sister sites every month – almost a third of the Internet-connected world.
It is the 5th most popular website in the world – but Wikipedia isn’t anything like a commercial website. It is a community creation, written by volunteers making one entry at a time. You are part of our community. And I’m writing today to ask you to protect and sustain Wikipedia.
Together, we can keep it free of charge and free of advertising. We can keep it open – you can use the information in Wikipedia any way you want. We can keep it growing – spreading knowledge everywhere, and inviting participation from everyone.
Each year at this time, we reach out to ask you and others all across the Wikimedia community to help sustain our joint enterprise with a modest donation of $20, $35, $50 or more.
If you value Wikipedia as a source of information – and a source of inspiration – I hope you’ll choose to act right now.
All the best,
P.S. Wikipedia is about the power of people like us to do extraordinary things. People like us write Wikipedia, one word at a time. People like us fund it, one donation at a time. It’s proof of our collective potential to change the world.”
