      *Circumpolar Musings* is an almost daily, random selection of news of the
      Circumpolar North, culled from online sources.

      The site was begun as an experiment in using Manila to construct web and
      news (blog) sites. Collecting northern news items and items that contribute
      to a greater appreciation for the people who live and work in the North
      seemed like a useful thing to do.

      The server stats are not particularly discriminating, but the site now
      receives roughly a thousand or three hits a day. Most users arrive via a
      search for some specific bit of information. I've turned some of those
      searches into FAQs (though they're not really asked all that frequently) or
      "InfoBits <http://dl1.yukoncollege.yk.ca/infobits>".

      Amanda Graham is the instructor for the University of the Arctic's online
      BCS 100 and Coordinator of University of the
      Arctic<http://www.uarctic.org/>@ Yukon College. She also teaches some
      Northern Studies courses at the
      college. She used to be the Managing Editor of *The Northern
      Review*<http://www.yukoncollege.yk.ca/review/index.php>
