Speaking of remiss, I’ve long been remiss for not writing about Wikinews, and how it works for or against my own interests in a press corps and clippings service that make use of this hyar new-fangled Whee-Quay technology.

The current wikinews project :
1) doesn’t take itself seriously enough to center itself on a grand vision, creating something for the ages, and
2) continues to focus on individual ego and interest rather than a notion of completeness as applies to news, but
3) picks up a definite pocket of interest that was stymied by having no real outlet in other wikimedia projects.

“…news content about
every newsworthy person, place, movement, and event, covering dated
news from the past (fit into a timeline), fresh news from the present
(qualified by how well and by how many indep sources it could be
verified), and spotty news from/about the near future (qualified by the
quality of leaking sources, idenfitied with related events in the past,
and cross-referenced with [statistics from] a predictions registry)…”

Now you’re talking.
