I understand the photo illustrates WP admits commencing a copyedit of a Living Person Biography?

Oh, man, if only. That looks much more fun than actual copyediting.

Odd Socracy Questions Wikipedia's ad hoc Ochlocracy

What if the site were called Wikipedia.mob?

Would Howard Rheingold be gratified that his pheromeme of Smart Mobs had gone viral?

Or would Kelly Martin be vindicated that her pheromeme of an ad hoc ochlocracy had taken root like kudzu?

...because, like Moulton, you like nothing better than quoting your own writings, seeing how you're the only person in the world with reasonable ideas.

No, that was actually vintage Jon, and clever use of catharsis/cathartic/Carthage. I think I'm pwned.

That bathroom wall poem he's riffing on*, is old. Steinbeck alludes to it in Tortilla Flat, 1935. I wonder how old it really is.

In my day the third line was "Paid a penny" which was in reference to the days of public conveniences* where one old penny was required to enter the stalls, one penny being a large amount of money.

*A minor British scandal is the loss of these useful facilities, usually blamed on the cottaging industry rather on the rather more dull budget cuts.

No, the third line is "Paid my dime"; "Paid a penny" is a poor localization that doesn't preserve the meter.

And articles like that normally go on to advocate massive governmental coercion in the name of saving the Earth, leading some commentators to regard "greens" as former "reds" who changed color once it was no longer "in" to be commie.
