As inspired by a final project of Ivan Deutsch's Quantum Optics class, you are invited to create a “Wikipedia Article” on a subject in the broad field of quantum physics, information, computation and intelligence science of special interest to you.
Wikipedia is a very widely used database for checking scientific items. However, there are many jargons are not collected; there are also errors and imperfections in existing pages; beyond English, people are also looking for wikipedia pages in their native languages... Maybe in most cases, you can still make an improvement on any existing or closely related page on your topic you are interested by adding more details or correcting some errors. If you decide to write an entire new article, the length of the article needs not to be very long. While the America's Thanksgiving is coming on Nov 28, I hope this small project is a good way to say THANKS to our community!
To make this open project full of fun, we'd like to add some SOFT DUE DAYS. In reality, you are always welcome to make an improvement on wikipedia pages at any time you want. Hope this is just a beginning!Soft Due Dates:
There are numerous tutorials on the web about how to create a page. To proceed, create a user account on Wikipedia. You can draft your article in your user “sandbox.” Watch the tutorial. Once you give your article a subpage on your user site in Wikipedia, you will be able to share your draft with other users for previews. A good way to see how editing is done is to look at the source of other pages. If you are not comfortable with the Wikipedia “markup language,” there is now a WYSIWIG visual editor. You turn this on in your preferences. It seems very user friendly for simple things. Some of the experiences and contents are borrowed from Ivan's Quantum Optics class project I mentioned above. Wish you find it meaninful.
