Vox Day announces the launch of Infogalactic –
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE October 10, 2016
INFOGALACTIC: an online encyclopedia without bias or thought police
Zürich, Switzerland. All around the world, thousands of users are accessing and editing the new online encyclopedia for the 21st Century, Infogalactic, which styles itself the Planetary Knowledge Core™. Conceived as a next-generation replacement for Wikipedia, the troubled online encyclopedia, Infogalactic is a dynamic fork of Wikipedia that is designed to supplant its predecessor by addressing the problems of bias, vandalism, harassment, abuse, and inaccuracy that have plagued the Wikimedia Foundation’s flagship project for years.
“Every notable public figure who has a page devoted to them knows very well what an inaccurate nightmare Wikipedia is,” said Vox Day, Lead Designer of Infogalactic, a computer game designer and bestselling philosopher. “The page about me there has had everything from my place of birth to the number of times I’ve been married wrong. And that’s not even counting the outright abuse, such as when Wikipedians replaced the entire page with a definition of a sexually-transmitted disease or with a string of obscenities.”
Infogalactic plans to solve the structural problems of a community-edited online encyclopedia through objectivity, proven game design principles, and a sophisticated series of algorithms. Currently in an operational Phase One, the Planetary Knowledge Core has a five-phase Roadmap that its founders claim will eliminate edit warring, significantly improve accuracy, neutralize vandalism and other forms of griefing, and render all forms of political bias on the part of administrators and editors irrelevant.
By request, here’s some Liphlich for Wdydfae, whose site you really should check out. I have no idea what the hell the deal is with this band, they’re almost like a collision of Glam Rock and Lounge Style with some Scandinavian metal thrown in over a disco beat. Or something.
Skam Life –
Move every Zig for Great Nonsense –
Whatever happened to that Manic Pixie that you used to know?
Some live Liphlich, not the greatest video quality but good enough –
Thanks to Wdydfae for making this an easy one.
I just discovered a site called NightSky Club Radio. “Best EDM & House Music,” or so it says. Has nothing to do with me.
First thing I heard upon listening was Maxi Priest’s “Close To You” –
Eh, not bad, I guess. The next couple songs were crap, but I kinda liked “HOT4EVA” by DJ Short-E (whoever that is). I probably shouldn’t admit to that in public, however.
I’m wondering if I should try to get a gig on there, but I don’t really know all that much about club music. But if they’re cool with kinda sorta electronica like Poe, we might get somewhere.
Rocktober begins again, bringing the rain today after a stretch of nice weather, just in time for a Saturday Night Special Studio with Shirley Manson and Garbage –
The band is probably best known for two songs – the above and the radio mainstay “Stupid Girl” –
Shirley doesn’t hesitate to let people know where they stand, does she?
Have an entire concert from 20 years ago, when they were just starting out.
