Absolutely right, my upvote FWIW.

So, the bar for contributing to the wiki has been raised from "has access to a computer" to "has access, knowledge, and resources to run a wiki server"? I hope one or more WaaS (wiki as a service) providers will emerge where a user account == a fed wiki node.

-----


That's already how it works. You could run your own node and share information back and forth with other nodes, or you could use an account on an existing node. This is clearly the case: if you go to the C2 Federated Wiki, you'll note the Login button.

Ah, thank you. Still wrapping my head around the new architecture.

It looks like each page a user navigates to is appended to the URL. I hope the team develops the notion of "browsing modes" with the option (on by default I would think) to use canonical URLs for a given page. Otherwise, a user trying to visit a bookmark at a later date will (1) wait for all prior pages in their browsing stack to load before the page they bookmarked, and (2) may potentially exceed a maximum URL length depending on how that particular wiki is served.

Similar comics existed (and exist) growing up in the U.S., but they are less prominent in comic book stores, and more prominent in traditional book stores or the Sunday paper. E.g., Calvin and Hobbes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calvin_and_Hobbes).

-----


We got those in addition to those. E.g. Calvin and Hobbes had a monthly magazine in Norway until a decade after Watterson stopped drawing (publishing reruns after they'd run dry of original material) alongside guest series. On top of that comes the collected editions.

Some US newspaper strip artists end up earning more from Scandinavia (aggregate potential market of about 25 million) than the US because of this.

> increasing connascence

Well, you're trading connascence of position for connascence of name, which in this case is much better because you are providing context for the argument data.

> At the time, Kew possessed virtually the entire planet’s population of Nymphaea thermarum.

If preservation is the goal, maybe the plants ought to be spread around a bit. Sounds like the theft could be a net gain for the species (shrug)

> What a terrible article

Those are quotes from interview subjects, not editorialization. If the subject's opinion is horrible, you want that to show through in the article.

-----


The interesting thing is that they're quotes from an NYU law professor who was the "top lawyer" for the FBI from 2011 to 2013. I do wish the reporter had asked him what responsibility he felt for so abusing the public trust that corporate America (of all possible parties!) felt they needed to respond in a way that could seriously raise the hackles of the federal government.

When people abuse the trust put in them, they deserve to lose that trust.

-----


Then don't upvote it. Asking that people prescreen their submissions to not offend your subjective definition of "interesting" or "informative", is introducing a chilling effect.

-----


Their primary computer must be one of those.

That's kinda sad.
