Hello, I'm Spencer Diamond and I am a student at the University of California Berkeley. I originally hail from the San Fernando Valley which is part of the greater Los Angeles area, but now I call the San Francisco Bay Area my home. I am currently double majoring in Molecular Cell Biology and Microbial Biology, and I hope to get my PhD if i do not go insane first. I have been using Wikipedia significantly for information since I have come to college, and have regarded it as quite an incredible resource. However, while browsing Wikipedia I have noticed many errors as well as gaps that I would like to fill in and correct. Unfortunately, as somewhat of a perfectionist, I have hesitated to edit articles or create new ones for fear that I would introduce new errors or not write something good enough. However this year I have found that editing wikipedia articles while I am studying for finals provides an incredible means for procrastination (which I am very fond of). Further, because I am in the process of studying the information for my articles is very fresh in my head. But alas, Wikipedia seems to be quite addictive and I feel that even after finals are over I hope to continue being a productive part of the Wikipedia biological community...maybe even one day becoming an admin. Ok well thats my story, see below for some more interesting information about my work on Wikipedia.
