Why Dante would have contributed to Wikipedia

All men whom the higher nature has imbued with a love of truth should feel impelled to work for the benefit of future generations, whom they will thereby enrich just as they themselves have been enriched by the labours of their ancestors. Let there be no doubt in the mind of the man who has benefited from the common heritage but does not trouble to contribute to the common good that he is failing sadly in his duty.

My name is Iain McIntyre. I am a male 30something and live in the UK. I am also a musician with a Bachelor's Degree in Music, but I no longer work in music. I have composed several works — including a concerto for piano and alto flute, and a large-scale work for wind instruments — all of which remain unpublished. My poem "Unaccompanied" won an award after I submitted it on and was published in a compilation in 2004. I presently live here (as a carer for my father), though I was born here (of parents from here) and have lived here, here, here, here and here, among other places. I am not an Australian rock star (unfortunately).

Picture of the day
Magdalene College, Cambridge, dining hall

The dining hall at Magdalene College, Cambridge. Built in the early 16th century, the hall is used for Formal Hall. Fellows and their guests dine at the High Table, placed on a platform one step above ground level at the far end of the hall. Students dine at three long benches in front of and perpendicular to the High Table and spanning to the entrance.

Magdalene College is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge. It was founded in 1428 as a Benedictine hostel. Today it is one of the smaller constituent colleges.
