THIS IS OLD NEWS
Craig Fergus is a UC Davis graduate with a major in Conservation Biology, has interned with the California Water Resources Board working on wetland and riparian protection policy, monitored wood duck nest boxes along Putah Creek, helped write species profiles for calfish.ucdavis.edu, and this summer will be conducting Northern Goshawk and Spotted owl surveys for the Forest Service in El Dorado National Forest.
The Haggis name comes from the fact that he is incredibly Scottish even though he was born and raised in the disappointingly boring "city" of San Jose.
Craig used to swim and play water polo in high school and has been planning to get in the pool again for 3 years. In the mean time he hopes that his use of bicycles as his main form as transport will suffice for exercise.
Craig also thinks the Varsity is pretty rad.
- Explore The Green Belt (sorta)
- Take pictures of Davis with my new camera and add them to the wiki. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/deependdriver)
- Use the Bike Church more to turn my bruiser into some kind of mutant cruiser (new bike)
- Learn the basics of some foreign languages (I have a nice start on Welsh)
- Become informed on important issues from primary sources (still an ignorant American)
- Book a show (see the Villanova House for proof)

2007-08-30 07:20:28 For two reasons: first, because it has been archived before — several times (and those are just the ones off the top of my head). A set of similar topics come up periodically, and the previous times it has come up are never cited the next time it is debated. I'm not even sure they should be cited, as the editorship changes, and the current group might come to a different conclusion this particular time. As a result, I don't think even trying to archive them into something that could be pointed at would be a good idea because the eventual community decision is subject to change as the editors change, and you wind up creating dogmatic phrases rather than casual, shifting tradition that takes into account the current editors. Yes, it is a contradictory combo of "it doesn't have an effect", and "if it has an effect, it locks us into a view that doesn't accept the input of new editors", but that's my reasoning. It's about giving the right to new editors to have a voice in the community not completely negated by editors in the past. Experienced editors already have a strong voice if their reasoning is sound, and tradition carries enough weight to prevent a series of radically contradictory changes that are destructive to the content... there's no need to turn their views (including mine) into dogmatic liturgy. You had a perfect right to question the issue, and the resulting discussion is productive as a venue for all current editors to take stock of the current status, raise their opinions and maybe change their minds a bit. —JabberWokky

2010-09-27 22:04:01 Well, we could make the two of them side-by-side. But there is no way to guarantee that they will go across the whole window because people will have their browsers open to different widths. —CovertProfessor
