Wikipedia Co-founder: “Wikipedia Is Badly Biased”

Uncyclopedia logoWikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger published an article on his blog, “Wikipedia Is Badly Biased”, on 2020-05-14.  He begins by stating,

Wikipedia’s “NPOV” is dead.  The original policy long since forgotten, Wikipedia no longer has an effective neutrality policy. There is a rewritten policy, but it endorses the utterly bankrupt canard of journalistic “false balance,” which is directly contradictory to the original neutrality policy. As a result, even as journalists turn to opinion and activism, Wikipedia now touts controversial points of view on politics, religion, and science.... [Read More]

Looking over old files….

I don’t know about you, but there are some things that touched me in my life, some things in the digital world, some things that were shared or received in an email . Yep most were discarded with the logic that ten thousand angels on the head of a pin won’t help me if I don’t forward this to ten other people….

I’m a “visual” type of person, I can visualize results of a project before it’s even begun. A lot of the things I saved were images or clever sayings, but some were purely text…

Computers are funny….

Computer Platforms Go Full Circle

I began using Apple II then Mac computers back when. Then, when everybody around me at the hospital was using Windows machines, I switched over. I was frequently in over my head and, on occasion, drowned, so to speak. I came up with the aphorism – with which most everybody agreed – “install any new software at your peril”. Something else will surely not work, even if the new software does (by no means guaranteed). I often wondered out loud back then, say, early 90’s, why Apple didn’t own the world. Their machines were so much better for guys like me, non- computer literate.

Well. My new MacBook Air (I went back to Apple around 2002 as I recall) has OS Catalina. Over the past few days, the following quit working (having all worked fine on the 5 year-old machine I migrated over to this one): Safari – just quit doing anything; 1Password – likewise. I couldn’t even re-download it; Carbon Copy Cloner – cloned not. I already spent 45 minutes the phone with Apple. They couldn’t figure out what was wrong with Safari (Firefox worked fine). After playing around with extensions (there were none operating) and network settings, it suddenly started up & worked for 2 days then quit again.... [Read More]
