Happy new year. Yes, I’m writing here again as part of my new year plan. I’ll be covering the arts in Altadena and Pasadena (and elsewhere no doubt) over on http://Altadenaaboveitall.com

Here’s where I’ll talk about anything I choose as my interests are many. And check out my blog on politics and photography, Polipics, at www.digiphotomag.com.

Thought I’d pick  up this blog again with a post from Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia.

I’m impressed that Americans have heeded the call and are supporting such a worthy endeavor as Wales envisioned: “Imagine a world in which every single person on the planet has free access to the sum of all human knowledge.”

And, in  contrast to what some people believe, I recall that recently a study that found Wikipedia’s entries exceedingly accurate. Damn fine contribution to the world.
