Work on Wikipedia:[edit]

  • On Wikipedia I am primarily a "gardener", I find it relaxing.. but some articles I added a lot to;

Work on Wikiquote:[edit]

Avro Arrow 1959
"Canada has an Alice in Wonderland view of the world.." (Wikileaks..)
  • This user did not go to University, but he did read the text....

Pages with extensive additions:[edit]

  • Marcus Aurelius, filled in the rest of the "Meditations"...
  • Peter Drucker, provided the quotes from; MANAGEMENT: Tasks, Responsibilities, Practices.(1973) I believe this book is to the art of management what Isaac Newtons Principia was to math ....
  • John Kenneth Galbraith, A great Canadian, but what did he do with all his money? Added quotes from several missing works and added a lot to others...
  • Benjamin Graham, added quotes from several of his works, especially his obscure early works..in my humble opinion this man was very well read and seemed to be very familiar with another great German economist I dare not name....
  • James Joyce, added Pomes Penyeach, I love my Joyce.
  • John Maynard Keynes, added much to The General Theory and several of the seldom heard of minor works, from first editions out of my own library....
  • Thomas Malthus, Provided the quotes from his very first work and his very last work in his lifetime. The amazing thing I discovered is the 180 degree change from the first work and the last. Also added all the "Quotes about".
  • Karl Marx, Added the remaining 50% of Capital, Volume I, all of Capital, Volume II and Capital, Volume III of Das Kapital.. all of the Grundrisse, and sequencing of the Communist Manifesto with section, paragraph, line references... Also made extensive additions to the "Quotes about" section. (I am a little Marxed out at present....)
  • David Ricardo, added extensive quotes from Ricardos main work and "Quotes about"..
  • Joan Robinson, The most under rated and the most quotable economist that has ever lived...
  • Joseph Schumpeter, provided the quotes from; Capitalism, Socialism and Democracy (Third Edition)
  • Adam Smith, found as a total mess, added extensive quotes from the whole work of The Wealth of Nations (unabridged, of course...), and provided all the "Quotes about".
  • Thucydides, really filled this one in, added full citations for all the quotes and added images of the time of Thucydides, giving a very nice effect.
  • Vitruvius, consisted of six un-sourced quotes, now very near complete.
