I'm listening to this episode of Radiolab, "The Bad Show", and it's blowing my mind.

One of the things I love about the internet and social media is the constant flow of and access to amazing things discovered in astronomy.

Why Wikipedia is a TERRIBLE source for information.
I could add a lot more to this excellent post.

For many years, two people that have stalked me have been the editors of the Wikipedia page about me. The stalker that published my address on the "Violet Blue" page is a high-ranked editor there with a well-known and documented history of operating multiple accounts. He sent me an email years ago saying he would spend the rest of his life diminishing my accomplishments, and on Wikipedia he has succeeded (compare my bio here to the page and you'll see what I mean). Yes, I made this threatening email public, but to no avail.

Both stalkers worked diligently over the course of years to set up their Wikipedia status, and each uses the bureaucratic flaws like the ones Danny describes (among others) to troll me and other people, and control conversations about topics they feel they own or want to manipulate.

Add to this a recent conversation I had with someone that works there, where I discovered that the staff has a relationship of fear with the editors... And this is why I never link to Wikipedia or cite it as a reference. Accuracy is held hostage by a deeply flawed system.

Maybe only public posts work with Plusist. Let's try this one. #t

Anyone know how I connect Google Apps to my account?

It's weird. Diaspora looks a lot like Google+.

A new series of posts on my Ministry of Soup blog called 'Nourishing an Occupation'. Are you cooking for an Occupation anywhere? I'm looking for guest bloggers.
