Don't Panic is on the cover of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Sadly Wikipedia does not have an actual cover page, nor does it offer body debit cards to its best editors, but it is still the greatest repository of all knowledge and wisdom in the known universe.

Yes, much of it is apocryphal, or at least wildly innacurate, but it's beautiful. And since any poet can tell you that truth is beauty, and beauty is truth, Wikipedia must be true. Or at least truthy. Ve4cib 02:12, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

Online Computer Science Textbook[edit]

I was involved in the initial creation of the online textbook for the intro computer science course at the University of Manitoba, and gave a couple of presentations to subsequent classes who worked on it.

The online textbook can be found here
