The funniest part was I read this in my Google reader. Our RSS feed cuts things off, but I just assumed it was Michael being stupid, because it read "I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon and take the piss out of the whole microblogging thing. I figured I'd make up a joke"

Wikipedia is being ruined by detail-obsessed nerds

Wifey tries to look up some Herbie info and is greeted with this: In the original 1968 film, The Love Bug, the original stripes differ from those in later movies; the stripes do not cover the valances or louvers of the car and the blue is a lighter shade. Also, Herbie features color-keyed running bo...

Miles is right, apart from raising a small amount of awareness it won't do shit. We could see the city from here last night and loads of lights were on, so whatever. If we truly want to make a difference, we need to put more money into alternate sources of power generation. Step up wind farms, etha...

Miles I disagree about an Inconvenient Truth. I am quite amazed at the effect that has had on public opinion (and its associated follow on effect of who people vote in to office, policies enacted by government, etc).

Re: Plagiarising from Wikipedia

I've heard about this before, but I think I actually found some today. I was reading an article about Blu-Ray "winning" the format war ( found here ) and went to read about 8-Track on Wikipedia after reading it. Notice these passages here. In addition, the eight tracks were usually divided into fou...

The most frustrating thing right now...

...is email templates, and "smart" responses.

Immediately, I get a form ...

Fair enough corp6, I guess the problem is I've had doctors tell me some pretty whacko stuff. I guess the broader problem is also the need for doctor re-education, as discussed on Scrubs :D

Doctors aren't infallible

Being a germo I have slightly more than a passing interest in medicine. Having been misdiagnosed by doctors on several occasions I came to realise that doctors, while having the bar set quite high, are just like any other group of professionals - there are plenty of great ones, but there are also a ...
