The complexity wiki
An open community collaborative post-and-editing wiki on trans-disciplinary and especially networks and complexity sciences research that enriches each of the standard disciplines. Intended primarily for researchers, students, faculty and others engaged through individual and collaborative postings, courses, methods, shared and documented open-source software, tutorials, and tools for research and enhancing interdisciplinary advancement in the full range of overlapping human sciences, humanities, and natural and computer science, with interests in the complexity sciences, their teaching, and applications. For a USERid please contact email@example.com to participate by login with your real name, which lets you edit and create new pages and to modify others using the "edit" tab. As you type into the "edit" text window the Firefox browser has automatic spell-check (OS X:control-Click).
Current events lists our live and Streaming UC complexity Videoconferences and a speakers index for earlier talks, 2005-2008, listed along with those of other complexity centers.

Sarah Palin signed Alaska's oil severance tax of 25%! Texas charges 7.5%.(1) Why doesn't California make Big Oil pay for the privilege of profiting off our natural resources? State Senator Noreen Evans (D-Santa Rosa) has proposed Senate Bill 241, which would tax oil extraction at a modest 9.9%. Public higher education would receive 93% of revenues, and 7% would go to the Department of Parks and Recreation." Courage Campaign May 4 2012.

Of the 49 donors, 48 exceeded the PAC and party limit and 32 exceeded the candidate limit." Huffpost May 3 2013.

- RSN Dec 12 2012: Lawrence Tribe: "It badly distorts the meaning of everything I have written on the subject to treat me as remotely hostile to the comprehensive national regulation of firearms and ammunition possession, transfer, and use; and it even distorts my meaning to regard my views as similar to those that the Roberts Court has expressed on the subject, although I hasten to add that even this Court's unfortunate views leave very substantial room for close regulation and even prohibition of entire categories of dangerous firearms and the ammunition that makes them lethal. The fact that many of my fellow gun control proponents were disappointed by the nuanced character of what I wrote in 2000 shouldn't be allowed to distract from my continuing conclusion that the Constitution permits, and that sane public policy demands, vastly stricter firearms regulation than exists in the United States today.""

- http://wholinkstome.com/url/uci.edu (google rank=8 of 0-9, the top 1.2%)
- intersci.ss.uci.edu Google indexed pages: 1,440 Bing Related: 111

- Not clear in these how to interpret the pagerank:
- http://wholinkstome.com/url/eclectic.anthrosciences.org has page rank=0, keyword rank=3 for intersci.ss.uci.edu
- http://eclectic.anthrosciences.org has page rank=0
- Mediawiki Site Statistics "this page has been accessed" times JUST SET $wgDisableCounters=false; DONE
- $wgDisableCounters determines whether or not to update the number of times a page has been viewed. If $wgDisableCounters is set to false, each page will have a counter in its footer saying: "This page has been accessed X times"
Log-ins available from the syops
- From 1997-2011 logins were available to anyone, but by March 2011 systematic hackers were sufficiently common that, without all the editor and bot resources of Wikipedia, requests for new logins should go to the mediawiki sysops, email@example.com. Your full or abbreviated name will be your login and you will be sent a password that you can change. Login will allow you to add and edit pages.
