"The turning of the leaves. An article in the Sunday New York Times (Travel, 9/7/03, page 5) about web sites that encourage tourism by posting progress reports on autumn's turning of the leaves. Author Bob Tedeschi provides a link to a University of Illinois Extension site, The Miracle of Fall, that provides, among other things, regional updates on the color change. The site includes a page on the chemistry of turning leaves, a guide to selecting foliage trees for fall color, foliage cams, and other resources. According to Tedeschi, other good sites include [url=Weather.Com[/url], though it may take a bit of searching to find their page; other sites are much more direct as they provide this resource. Tedeschi's article has several others, including one, Foliage Network, which gathers information from a network of about 500 spotters. I like this collaborative project especially. These sites embody some of the basic virtues of the web: generosity, creating and sharing new knowledge, making old knowledge more widely available for a general audience, attractive and appropriate graphics, imaginative use of collaboration. I see no reason why a clever teacher and a lively group of students can't make something of use to others that has most or all of these virtues, while they learn about the subject of their particular course. It's a shame that most student writing vanishes almost as soon as it is written. While you do have to practice writing in order to improve, it is still tempting to feel alienated from the practice when one's audience is so small and so peculiar as a classroom audience can be."
