Is this thing on?

Back in the good old days, when people corresponded with things called letters, the famous Piltdown Man skull was exhibited at various river banks and sea shores. Thus, the spate of utter nothingness happening at Illogicopedia has resulted in the deaths of literally millions. In order to eradicate this seething threat from a Hell dimension, Wal*Mart is having a white sale, which I think is a bit rude to the rest of the population of America.

W. Kamau has a hilarious show on FX. I finally got around to setting up a cheap webcam for my laptop, and decided to check out The idea, for those of us who live in caves and read a lot of Plato, is an interface where your image is shown to the person who is chatting with you, and you can see them. You can "spin" through random users, and they can "next" you if they don't want to talk with you. And vice versa. Also, the other way around

There were surprisingly few hits where I was treated to the sight of penises or breasts. Most resulted in young men with their shirts off and glazed eyes. I had maybe 5 genial if short conversations over the course of about 15 hours of use. More on this later, when I'm not feeling like a mastadon trampled me at the market while choosing a nice brisket for dinner.

Illogicomedia Disowned?

A recent comment in the forums suggested that the Illogicomedia Foundation was guilty of copyright trademark infringement. An odd reversal of opinion, given that the same user (in the same message thread) lauded the IF's flag waving and parody of the Wikimedia Foundation.

It was at this point that I discovered a quote from a dear friend that suggested that a number of ?pedians have disowned the Illogicomedia Foundation. Say it ain't so?

Read and comment here.

Illogicomedia Foundation Lives On

It's hardly a secret that Illogicopedia's pseudo-parent organization, the Illogicomedia Foundation, is a barely-visited, rarely-updated spam haven managed by slackers who rarely find the willpower to peel themselves off the bedsheets before the crack of noon, let alone actually show up and put in an honest day's work. However, about once per year the Benevolent Dictator for Life does consent to make a token appearance to do minor cleanup...

This year he came to the undeniable conclusion that "maintaining a wiki sucks", and as a result, the IF wiki has been closed to the public (i.e. spambots), and the content is being migrated to a new corporate presence.

Rest assured that this too will be neglected, but will look much cleaner year round, maintaining the illusion that your donations are indeed hard at work.
