First, regarding wikipedia of yesterday's tip. This link: http://snipurl.com/vpfd is a video of Jimmy Wales, Founder of Wikipedia, at the TED Conference in 2006. (Would anyone care to sponsor me to go to the next one? It's only $4400. Let me know. :-) ) This short movie is EXCELLENT in telling you how Wikipedia works, straight from the horse's mouth, so to speak. No matter what your opinion of Wikipedia, you should give this a listen. DOWNLOAD it, rather than stream it. With over 1000 people getting these tips (and dozens actually READING them :-) ), streaming this video could bring the network to a halt in no time. Thank you!

I've got enough of these now to be able to print out a calendar to give to my wifes' aunt who just loves hummingbirds.
Anyway... I hope you enjoy this one.
