Current List of Participating Oregonians

Alan Millar

Alexander Ruscle[?], Reedsport.

BryceHarrington - I am one of the original Wikipedians and chose Oregon history as my area of focus, and have made it a mission to make the Oregon page and all of its links full of good historical stuff -- *long* articles, not just stubs. I wrote the articles on Astoria, Eugene, Lake Oswego, Tigard, Gladstone, Oregon City, and the Cascade Mountain Range, among others. I also like working on the various pages on Lewis and Clark, Native Americans, the fur trade[?], and the Oregon Trail. Today I wrote the article on Manifest Destiny. :-)

Geoff Burling, native Portlander. I thought I had a link here, but maybe I forgot to save my edit . . .

Michael R. Irwin from Coquille, Coos County. Coquille H.S. Class of 79, Valedictorian.

Len Bounds of Salem going by username Dmsar. I happen to think that making stubs is a good thing. It adds some knowledge while perhaps triggering someone to fill in the details and add to the collective sentience. IMHO.


Quickbeam from Corvallis

user:Swatiananda[?] I live here on the south coast of Oregon, hidden away in the mossy forest. I am a practicing Siddha Yogini, a blend of Vendanta and Shaivism, but also include in my background a bit of study in Tao, Buddhism, Yogananda, Zen, American Indian, and new-age stuff. I read a lot of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, but am also into reading bios of saints, Ken Wilbur, Science Digest, and almost anything cutting edge that isn't about electronics.

I am also a writer, doing poems, ballads (I sing), children's stories, "teaching" tales, and insightful non-fiction pieces. I have a text book out that combines the fields of color therapy, astrology, groking, and the ancient lore on the healing qualities of gemstones.

I make my living as a seamstress and also practice tonal healing (singing a note to alter the body's energy field when a person is having difficulty healing easily.)
