What is a Wiki? Community Norms 
This is a Wiki. A Wiki is a web page that everyone in the community can edit. This means that we need some norms for civil behavior, if this is going to remain a positive and useful resource:
- Use "E for Everyone" appropriate language and content.
- Enhance & Improve each other's content -- do not destroy the work of others (As admin, I can put it back -- the Wiki preserves everyone's changes, but if I have to do this to correct uncivil behavior, I'll most likely ban the bad actor from the site - permanently. Don't worry though - I understand that "accidents happen", and the Wiki let's me restore things deleted or changed in error -- just let me know, and I'll fix it.
- Only post links to resources that allow re-linking and shared use. On the web, that's most things, by-and-large. We're not "taking" them, only referring people to the resources, which most websites appreciate.
- If you are in doubt or have questions, e-mail me. I'm happy to help! Send Email
You may have noticed that (like a lot of teachers) I'm something of a fiend for including source citations and references. As a perennial student and researcher, I think this is really useful when I want further information -- I don't have to bug you; I just go straight to your source. But I'm also lazy, and (probably like most folk) don't really enjoy writing bib entries. My solution is to add the "MyBib Citation Generator" to my web browser. This nifty, free tool lets me auto-matically generate most references, and just copy and paste them as I make my posts. Just search the internet for "Mybib Citation Generator", and you will likely find a link to the "store" for extensions for your browser, where you can download this and similar tools!

Deepest Valley: Guide to Owens Valley by Genny Smith
"In Eastern California four hours north of Los Angeles lies a long trough-shaped valley, bordered on either side by massive mountain ranges. Valley and mountains together form a region of superlatives. Here you will find our highest peak outside Alaska, Mount Whitney. The oldest of all living things, the bristlecone pine, and our deepest valley, the Owens.
