Ko te manu kai i te Miro nōna te ngāhere, Ko te manu kai i te mātauranga nōna te ao.
(The bird who eats of the Miro tree owns the forest, the bird who eats of the Tree of Knowledge owns the world.)

My real name is Brent Simpson... Countrymike is... well it's a long story which may have to be told some other time. I used to be a somewhat active custodian here at Wikiversity, and was involved in WikiEducator project where I was a member of the Advisory Board. My user page over there has a bit about me as well. If you need to get in touch with me regarding Wikiversity please leave a note on my Talk page.
I am quite firmly an inclusionist on Wikiversity and I am in the Eventualism camp.
