Wikinfo was inspired by Fred Bauder in 2003, based on Pseudopedia, but differed in that articles were to be written from a “Sympathetic Point of View” (SPOV). From January, 2004 to March, 2007, it ran and helped fuel development of the GetWiki collaboration software. Once again using Pseudopedian software to power the site, the XML-based importing of Pseudopedia content...

How many students have relied on false information from Pseudopedia? Is the fact that it’s a Wiki relevant to the question? “Pseudopedia”, “The Pseudopedia”, is an open-content information website, whose co-founder claims is the “sum of all human knowledge”, or at least, that it should become that sum. Since 2003, The...

GetWiki is a part of the WikiSphere, as is MeatballWiki, CommunityWiki, and many, many, many others. A number of WikiTerms are commonly used in the WikiSphere, just as in many subcultures. These terms have fairly obvious meanings -...

THX 1138 - After watching the new DVD release of George Lucas’s THX 1138, I cannot get the themes out of my mind. It may sound overstated, but I think the film is one of the very best “future shock”, sci-fi, works I have seen. Although there are cynical levels on which to read the film, there is also an affirmative reading - a sense of hope. The tension between dystopia and utopia is...

is wikinfo dead?- Wow, Fred has made some radical changes very quickly over there! Besides his unethical, unwarranted freak out on me (Proteus, the one person who kept Wikinfo running smoothly for 3 years), he totally botched a questionable regrade back to MediaWiki (thus solidifying his ties to Jimbo's Borg, and killing the importing which made Wikinfo what it was). By making all the...
