Truth about Wikipedia

An article from Wired sums up what I feel wikipedia is:

"But why should I contribute to an article? I’m no expert.
That’s fine. The Wikipedia philosophy can be summed up thusly: “Experts are scum.” For some reason people who spend 40 years learning everything they can about, say, the Peloponnesian War — and indeed, advancing the body of human knowledge — get all pissy when their contributions are edited away by Randy in Boise who heard somewhere that sword-wielding skeletons were involved. And they get downright irate when asked politely to engage in discourse with Randy until the sword-skeleton theory can be incorporated into the article without passing judgment."

Wi-fi phone

Finally, these Wi-fi phones are becoming more popular. It would be nice to use this type of phone in San Francisco if they get their free wireless mesh over the city. Free phone calls? Yes please. No more stupid contracts and paying for minutes.

From Engadget:

You wouldn't guess it from that conceptual looking pic, but Netgear is all prepped to start shipping their standalone WiFi Skype phone on June 30th. is accepting pre-orders now, with the phone going for a fairly steep $250, but at least it's marked down $50 from the $300 list price. If you missed it the first time around, Netgear's SPH101 Skype Phone can make Skype calls wherever you can finagle a WiFi connection, with no PC required. The phone can also manage your contact list, and forward calls to your mobile, landline, or other Skype account. Keep reading for a couple of more realistic pics.

Hell Yea: Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars Official

This is the series of games that got me into RTS gameplay. I loved to play these games.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 20, 2006 - The epic struggle between the Global Defense Initiative (GDI) and The Brotherhood of NOD continues…and the third Tiberium War is about to begin. Welcome back, Commander. Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS) today announced that Command & Conquer™, the groundbreaking series that put the Real-time Strategy (RTS) genre on the map, is returning in full force with Command & Conquer™ 3 Tiberium Wars*. This highly-anticipated next chapter takes the popular series back to its roots in the Tiberium universe and features the fast, fluid gameplay that Command & Conquer is known for and a gripping story that will redefine storytelling in RTS games.

It is 2047 and the stakes could not be higher. Tiberium-a self-replicating alien substance that has infected the Earth-is spreading like a radioactive ice age. The GDI, a high-tech alliance of the world’s most advanced nations, is fighting to contain Tiberium, but Kane, the megalomaniacal leader of The Brotherhood of NOD has other plans for Earth. Kane’s secret society turned superpower is bent on using Tiberium to take control and transform humanity into his twisted vision of the future. All-out war rages over Tiberium and the fate of the planet rests in the balance.

“Command & Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars combines fast-paced gameplay with new ways to tell a story in an RTS game,” said Mike Verdu, Executive Producer at EA Los Angeles (EALA). “We’re building a next generation Command & Conquer game that is true to the spirit of this classic franchise, but is updated with state-of-the-art visuals, added strategic depth, and gameplay innovations that will move the genre forward. I am very excited to be working on this amazing game.”

“We have been waiting to reveal this game for quite some time and are thrilled to bring the series back to where it all began,” said Louis Castle, VP of Creative Development at EA Los Angeles (EALA) and co-founder of Westwood Studios, creator of the Command & Conquer series. “The Tiberium universe is a personal favorite of mine, and this saga’s new direction will prove to be a worthy addition to one of the most celebrated RTS franchises.”
