Full Stop

Due to the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune (read: the Dell LatitudeXPi 166MHz laptop I got from my last contract 5 years ago gave up the ghost when I tried to re-install Win95 *sigh*) I no longer have connectivity ... raw deal after 3 decades of CMC (read: no box and no connection = no development). But being on disability sucks in any number of ways, and this isn't the worst of it.

Expect to see me posting about my new discourse system [working title: Miss Peeble] real soon now. In the meantime, peek at these two sites, and ponder how we create knowledge, exchange knowledge, and what happens if corporate entities dictate those processes.

  • Nupedia is an free, ever-expanding, open content general encyclopedia ... public peer-reviewed ... created by volunteer scholars the world over.
  • Wikipedia is an international, open content, collaboratively developed encyclopedia. As of January 2003, it covers a vast spectrum of subjects and has over 106,000 articles in English as well as about 37,000 articles in other languages.
How WikiPedia and NuPedia relate.

Human need, not corporate greed ... without justice, there can be no peace. That's the meme stringing these items together.
