Wikipedia Watch

There be net.kook-ery here, but this point is valid:

While Wikipedia itself does not run ads, they are the most-scraped site on the web. Scrapers need content — any content will do — in order to carry ads from Google and other advertisers. This entire effect is turning Wikipedia into a generator of spam

Rant: don't send screenshots of textual information..

Sent to a large audience at work today.

Subject: Rant: don't send screenshots of textual information..

If you're ever trying to email someone a list of files, etc., please don't do so by taking a screenshot of explorer showing those files. This is quite possibly the next-to-least-usable way to convey the information, second only to recording an MP3 of yourself singing the file names to the tune of "I am the very model of a modern major
general.." and emailing that.

Not naming any names. That is all.
