Today I learned about weasel words at Wikipedia…
I was doing some research about free software licenses as a part of developing ProgClub’s terms and conditions, and found this list of free software licenses from the FSF, and the same list of FSF approved software licenses on Wikipedia. I noticed the cool table sorting facility they have on the Wikipedia page, and wonder if that’s built in to MediaWiki..? It would be cool if it only required a class specification to have it work like that.
They all sound great in theory, with their lofty ideals, but the closer you get to them the more you realise their proponents and participants are generally small-minded closed-minded exclusive elitist authoritarian wankers of the first order.
Involved in some design discussion on the wikitech mailing list.
