Today I launched http://deletionpedia.org/ - where refused  #wikipedia  articles are allowed to stay!  #inclusionism  > #deletionism
Deletionpedia v2 is a wiki is to rescue articles deleted from Wikipedia. It was started by Guaka on December 24th 2013 and so far we've been rescuing 490 articles. Deletionpedia v1 was doing this for a while in 2008 but has stopped working (most rescues in 2008, last edit in 2012).

I'm looking for programming tutorials: I want to download the entire resource (tutorial, documentation, etc.) and utilities to learn offline on the train #python #scala #golang?

Or anything else interactive and interesting.

OHAI Google Plus.

What's going on over here?

I got sucked into Facebook and the twitters and real life.

Would love to hear from G+ people that I haven't been in contact with for a while, or even if I have :)

Is G+ still working for you? What's new here, and with life in general?

Hi James, I've been quiet here too - Garbologie is drawing me away. But that is (hopefully) beginning to get better. I may have my first employee, and have cleared the decks on the conference presentation and grant submission. Now to all of the other things that have been put on the backburner (like my social media, work that is important but rarely urgent). I've been loving following your exploits on Facebook. Deeply, deeply envious...

Leaving Google’s silo: Alternatives to Gmail, Talk, Calendar, and more
Looking back on Larry Page's tenure as CEO, I don't know if it's a coincidence but it seems reasonable to believe that, unlike Eric Schmidt, Page does not believe in open standards or an open Internet. Google has, in just a few short months, dropped support for open standards en masse, ...

Anyone used any mood or habit tracking apps? Interested in tracking a bunch of general metrics about my life - physical and mental health, habits and 'life to-do' status. Not sure on benefit of the available apps over simple spreadsheet.

LinkedIn hacked.

I'm finding LinkedIn pretty useless these days for finding interesting people or conversations to engage with.

Anyone using it for anything interesting, outside of finding office-jobs in big cities?
I'm done with LinkedIn. I've been on the fence about it for a year now. I get more recruiter spam than value. I'm also a bit too old for the schadenfreude that accompanies news of my overpaid friends getting canned. I'm running my own race these days and I've never been happier since I stopped ...

Quick Tip: Enable the Single-Column Stream Layout for that "Classic" Look

The new Google+ introduced a multi-column layout for the stream. If you're not a fan, there's a quick fix to return to a single-column.

empty toasties. if you like your toasties to be two sandy dry pieces of warm bread, with only the bare minimum tiny amounts of cheese and ham to allow them to be called 'cheese and ham toasties' then the nice man here will take your 3 euros from you with a smile. it's not ok to screw me over because I look like a tourist.

Good lord, have you seen the pressure doctors and the NHS are under? I've been to this doctor's a couple of times, and the appointments were late and the doctors were in a hurry but I got a good level of service, communicated what I wanted to say about my health problems and got the service that will help me solve them. Considering the constraints these people seem to be under the service is EXCELLENT. These people aren't magicians with infinite time and money - help them to help you and you'll get good service.

This place is a little odd. They don't sell obvious things like milk, which is rather annoying for a 'local' shop. The place also always smells pretty bad. They also don't have any of the useful machines or services that you'd expect from a newsagent like lottery, western union, oyster top up, etc. When I moved to the area I really wanted to give them my business instead of the huge Sainsbury's across the road, but after regularly being disappointed I just goto Sainsbury's instead now. Probably best not to question how this place stays in business - but it doesn't appear to be from selling things.

Great service and excellent quality work, done quickly. Took my bike in for a full service and bike came back looking like new - all the fiddly little gears and wires perfectly cleaned and oiled, great job. Price was reasonable and it was finished a day earlier than I needed.

Terrible, terrible service for a barber positioning themselves as luxury. They do £7 haircuts for £22. The service is just embarrassing. When I went, there was no one on the reception desk but 4 barbers cutting hair. None of them paid me any attention so I went and sat on the sofas. Nothing until someone called 'next!', and proceeded to wait at her chair for me. Didn't offer to take my coat, didn't offer me a drink (this is a £22 hair cut..). Quick, electric razored hair cut later, and I'm covered in hair all over my neck and no thought to either clean it up for me or give me a tissue. Then I'm £22 down for the ~15 minute privilege. Will never return to any Jack's again.

Food and service good. Nice little place. Only 3 stars because it's so expensive.
