I graduated from UC Davis with a bachelor degree in Managerial Economics. It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to do. I was initially majoring in Electrical Engineering, but during my second year I decided to change majors.
When I was still at Davis, I visited the DavisWiki to edit entries or to view the recent changes. I am glad there is a DavisWiki because it has helped me know more about UC Davis, Davis and the community.
I visit Davis once or twice a year and do minor editing and commenting on new changes in Davis. I sometimes add my perspective from the 4 years I was in Davis.

2010-07-27 12:45:59 Hi Simon. Yea, I work for CLM where management is currently trying to set up a "marketing" team to raise awareness around Davis and campus about the services we offer. I'll mainly be working on the Davis wiki pages along with one of my coworkers. We have a lot of work to do. I will be updating/creating MU/SciLab/Olson/Hutch (coworker doing the other labs) pages along with more general CLM pages, such as tips for printing and other helpful information. Hopefully by the end of summer it'll be all set up and updated. —NateCRC
2010-07-30 16:30:37 OK, cool. Thanks for that. —MasonMurray
2010-08-13 23:42:04 I really like that idea too :) we just need a tall ladder. —NickSchmalenberger
2010-11-21 00:49:23 Hey Simon, I agree that it's a cool idea... I'm just not sure it's ever likely to happen. If you want, though, feel free to revert to a pre-deletion version of the page. Oftentimes the thing that really gets a page going is simple attention, and a reversion can sometimes be enough to bring that. It's the sort of page that requires a lot of updating, but we've got others that are a fair amount of work that are currently going strong (e.g. Arriving Businesses). If you want to try to get the Davis Statistics page going, by all means, please do! I was just cleaning up, since it had been pretty thoroughly abandoned previously. —TomGarberson
2011-05-19 15:20:48 Yep! It's all their regular beers, plus a couple of their "Beer Camp" products, whatever they've been playing with in the experimental brewery. They had an amazing black IPA when we were there. —TomGarberson
2011-05-23 19:35:15 Unfortunately, most of the other wikispot wikis are really underdeveloped. Where a page has Davis perspective / Davis relevance, it deserves a page, or at least a section of a page here on DW. For example, Bay to Breakers probably deserves a writeup, since probably a couple hundred Davisites go each year. Advice, transportation, general information, what have you. By contrast, individual restaurants probably don't deserve much of a writeup beyond some special mentions on a page about things to do in SF. Cross-wiki links for that sort of thing are probably a good approach.
And, of course, if you want to put in some real work on the SF wiki, that'd be awesome. —TomGarberson
2011-05-24 15:09:49 That page looks great! "Hipster beach" is hilarious. —TomGarberson
2011-05-26 16:44:17 Thanks for working on the New Coffee House page. It looks like there are some objections to splitting it off, but your work is definitely appreciated! We can see about differentiating content on the Coffee House page between pre- and post-renovation a lot better. You got things rolling beautifully, so thank you! —TomGarberson
2012-02-03 04:51:50 Yep, the Beer Shoppe is pretty laid back I think. Earlier today, I saw two guys bringing in sub sandwiches and another guy was eating a salad (salad and beer seems like kind of a weird combo, but hey, who am I to judge.) Another time, some people were eating Woodstock's pizza, which was interesting to see since they are sort of a competitor! —ScottMeehleib
2012-03-04 21:53:57 The Internet Archive does a fantastic job of being a library of digital information. If you never knew about the various services it provides, they are worth going through. Digital books, archives of concerts and speeches, etc. —JabberWokky
2012-04-23 16:36:30 Yes, thanks so much for contributing your photos! —CovertProfessor
2012-10-18 23:44:38 Hey, I noticed you added Instagram to the Social Websites entry. You might want to add a note about the Davis relevance. All the others link to entries that explain the site's relation to Davis, with the exception of one, where I tried to add the relevance in a note. —JabberWokky
2012-10-19 00:00:50 Oh, I assume it's relevant. I only asked you about it because I don't use it and have no idea what the relevance is. I figure I'm probably not alone. Is there a Davis tag or some kind of geomapping thing to find local pictures? —JabberWokky
2014-07-09 15:48:26 Ha! I saw that Persian page when it was created, but I was inter-wiki gnoming and somehow mentally thought it was on a wiki by itself. Thanks for removing the spam! —JabberWokky
