It doesn't count as free if you have a contractual obligation to pay for 11 more months

He ran around all day shouting "No allegations without citations!"

On the left is my other sign - a "Who is Hitler?" quiz - it was very popular with photographers at the rally.

 

Kat and I paired up for a combo here, which you can also interpret as commentary on how Wikipedians sometimes demand citation for facts that seem obviously true. Is the sky blue? Maybe we should get a fact check on that....

I don't think low millions actually exist!

Wikipedia's Chocolate article seems to have an odd new way of highlighting sentences that have Citation Needed tags attached to them. I can't seem to see this layout used any place else on Wikipedia, but there's something wrong with it: it obviously is to help the editor. As a Wikipedia reader — which is without doubt the vast majority of traffic to this page — these highlights do exactly what they shouldn't: draw a lot of attention to spurious information.

 

Citation Needed "highlights" should probably be "lowlights," as they are easy enough to spot when looking for them in a text block but keep a reader's eye from the text by marking it as less relevant in the flow.

Last weekend I went on a roadtrip organized by Ben Schwartz to the DC rally to restore sanity! On the way down his mother threw together a super awesome dinner for us, possibly the only proper meal I'd eaten all month.

 

Kat was awesome and got posterboard and markers! We grabbed some sticks from Ben's parents' basement and Ben had the foresight to bring tape. With all this we managed to cobble together some great signs. The one on the left is Kat's (note: she's a big wikipedian, on the Wikimedia board of trustees), on the right is one of mine.

Daniel is just an average guy who is thrust into a world of conspiracy and family feuding by what he thinks is a chance encounter with a mad woman in a station: Lucy. When she is able to tell him secrets about his personal life that he isn’t even aware of, he delves deeper. Belying her less than sane exterior is a brilliant mind that claims to know a secret about a mysterious behemoth spying programme called Red Fortress, created by Reibart News International. Incensed by the injustice of this, Daniel and Lucy work together to stop Red Fortress before it starts. But, then again, we’re told this from Daniel’s perspective and anyone can write a blog, right? Told in the first person, this is a comedy-cyber-thriller with a talented and versatile cast of four playing multiple roles. The fast-paced, noirish prose will leave the audience wondering if they have been let into a mysterious secret or have had the conspiracy pulled over their eyes to hide one man’s paranoid delusion.

My friend (more katieinthehat's friend) Liz is doing what I'd love to do but can't really justify or afford right now. A month in America. She's going to New York, LA, San Fransisco, San Diego, Chicago, and guess where else?

 

We got a postcard from her today.
