‘We Need an Energy Miracle’Edit

Bill Gates nails it: Interview by The Atlantic. Something on the order of the Drake Well or Chicago Pile-1. Maybe some computers running genetic programming algorithms will help us find it, before "time runs out". A breakthrough in stellarator or tokamak research could be a game-changer.

Women On $20sEdit

The non-profit organization "Women On $20s" conducted a poll to choose a woman to put on a newly designed US twenty-dollar bill (to replace Andrew Jackson). The two leading vote-getters were Eleanor Roosevelt and Harriet Tubman. Others on the ballot were Rosa Parks, Wilma Mankiller, Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Clara Barton, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Margaret Sanger, Rachel Carson, Shirley Chisholm, Alice Paul, Frances Perkins, Barbara Jordan, Patsy Mink and Betty Friedan. As I was not familiar with some of these names, I looked them up and linked to them here. I think Jeannette Rankin should have been included on this ballot.

“I hope we can convince the next treasurer to print an equal number of $20 bills with both Jackson and Tubman.” Sounds like a great idea to me. NPOV and all. The last president to pay off our national debt in 1835.  

Wikipedia peaked in 2008?Edit

A ten-year update of Google Ngram data would help answer that question. By the way, for more on Culturomics and the Google Ngram Viewer, I highly recommend ISBN 978-1-59448-745-3.

  • Following a research project on masking IP addresses, the Foundation is starting a new project to improve the privacy of IP editors. The result of this project may significantly change administrative and counter-vandalism workflows. The project is in the very early stages of discussions and there is no concrete plan yet. Admins and the broader community are encouraged to leave feedback on the talk page.
  • The new page reviewer right is bundled with the admin tool set. Many admins regularly help out at Special:NewPagesFeed, but they may not be aware of improvements, changes, and new tools for the Curation system. Stay up to date by subscribing here to the NPP newsletter that appears every two months, and/or putting the reviewers' talk page on your watchlist.

    Since the introduction of temporary user rights, it is becoming more usual to accord the New Page Reviewer right on a probationary period of 3 to 6 months in the first instance. This avoids rights removal for inactivity at a later stage and enables a review of their work before according the right on a permanent basis.

Wikipedia editors are somehow expected to know a lot of stuff about this topic. I find it a bit overwhelming. I checked out ISBN 978-0199941162 from my local library, but confess it's been a struggle to put down my keyboard & mouse long enough to read it. Taking notes and posting links to terms as I come across them.
