Behind the scenes at wikipedia

Wherein reads like death by a bajillion pin pricks


Noticed I've gotten a few visitors from a wikipedia admin board. Took me awhile to figure out why -- some person by the handle of WebHamster had linked to this of mine.

Fascinating reading and ties in with a few recent posts at Done With Mirrors. particularly General Statement and Time of disturbance. I get the sense that most of my regular reader(s) end up over there, for the other 1.5 of you, check him out. Always interesting and thought-provoking.

I don't know if I'm one or .5: I read Callimachus for a while, but stopped learning anything new pretty quickly. Had a couple of drawn-out discussions and felt fairly strongly that Callimachus wasn't interested in learning anything new, either.

Not sure about the connection between your links and his, either.

Did you see Mr. Diddy in ABC's broadcast of A Raisin in the Sun the other night? I watched it for the amazing Audra McDonald, but I thought Puff pulled it off rather well. There might be a decent actor buried undeaneath all those over-produced layers of hype.

No. I would've watched if I'd known Ms McDonald was in it. Oh well, maybe they'll replay it this summer or on the ABC owned Family Channel ABC.

I thank you for your comment.

I am tempted to devise a comment with which you'd feel hard pressed to actually thank me for.

(I'm just ornery that way)

By the way, thank you for your post.

For the record, I have no recollection of this person or any correspondence with him or her. Which probably only proves what this person is insinuating, that I am much stupider than him or her.

Ah well, so it goes. It is important for all to remember that we are busy people and do not attach the same level of importance to all interactions.

I speak with no insinuation when I thank you for your comment.

I never said Callimachus was "stupid," merely that neither he nor I were getting anything out of my continuing participation in reading and commenting at his blog. There was no "correspondence" that I recall; merely comments.

Thank you for the opportunity to correct any further misconceptions or misreadings.
