So, back in the naughts (which they’re calling the 2000-2010 period now,) back in college, I started this website. The dream was going to be to not only create an online encyclopedia of Minnesota’s flora and fauna, but a community where Minnesotans could pop in and post their findings… bird sightings, flowers in bloom, leaves turning, stuff like that.

Well, what with the dawn of wikis, the first point is essentially moot. The second is sort of fulfilled by sites like Flickr, that allow you to geocache photos of… well, whatever you like. Birds and blossoms would certainly be applicable.

In the light of… well, everything, is there any sense in remaking this? Probably not…. I doubt I’m going to attract 500 people let alone the bulk of Minnesota… I’m going to do it anyway, though.
