Miscellany

January 15, 2007

What happens when a series of horrible, fiery earthquakes tear the Earth asunder, rending the very fabric of spac^h^h^h^h the Interweb in twain? The charismatic host of an esoteric podcast is unjustly prevented from joining us in the usual manner, that’s what.

And what happens, pray tell, when the remaining few attempt to record an episode without their fearless leader?

Uh… let’s not talk about that.

In short, we’re unable to record the long-awaited (or at least, apathetically anticipated) episode of Wikipedia Weekly until Taiwan’s tubes get back in order. We’re every bit as depressed about this turn of events as I’m sure you are — heh — but we’ll be back as soon as reasonably possible.

In other news, a recent Ars Technica article on Wikipedia, Citizendium, Scholarpedia et cetera started an interesting discussion on the future of Citizendium. There, I argued that many of Citizendium’s processes are — in their current forms — a joke, which sparked a reply by none other than Mike Johnson, a member of the site’s Executive Committee. I’ll be explaining my criticism to the project in full as soon as I have the time, but check out the discussion and how it went. :)
