Wiki Wacky Woozy
What's a new-media practice without an official mascot, slogan, or, er, cocktail? eastwikkers got the latter today with the discovery of the Wiki Waki Woo, a concoction invented by the folks at Cafe Bernardo near U.C. Davis, and now publicized via the amazing U.C. Davis Wiki. Take a close look at the recipe, inspired by the success of its East Coast cousin, the Long Island Ice Tea. Should you try to make the drink at home -- perhaps this Fourth of July weekend, in honor of the state that gave the drink its name -- scroll way down to see a critical step that the author of the Davis post neglected to mention: a straw filled with 151. It's the "wisdom of crowds" in action, a community of like-minded people working together to get things right. [See also: Wikipedia (they also got it right)] .
