they're paying him?
doesn't he have to deal with endless neonazi rewrites on wikipedia? i guess not.
@Nikolai_Kingsley @redcosmonaut He hasn't had anything to do with Wikipedia in 15+ years. He went off and started his own encyclopedia, with blackjack and hook---I mean, where the authority of experts would be respected. It was called Citizendium, nobody used it, and it decayed into a morass of pseudoscience.
@Nikolai_Kingsley @redcosmonaut Interesting bit from that page: << For instance, in 2006 Women's Studies and Ethnic Studies professors began joining Citizendium. Sanger refused to recognise these as genuine fields of endeavour, saying "I do not want to make CZ 'politically correct,' i.e., appealing especially to one (largely American/Western/Left) ideology," and refused to give them any place in Citizendium's structure. >>
in the future, AI will ensure every single person on Earth has their own Wikipedia that caters to their personal biases. no two wikis will agree, and everyone will go around with a smug, self-satisfied look on their face, knowing that they are indisputably right.
