Blog reading roundup

  • Like Andii Bowsher, I’ve bookmarked wikiHow, or “the How-To Manual That Anyone Can Write or Edit.” But I really wish it had gone the open license way of Wikipedia rather than preserving the author’s copyrights. I’m afraid there will be little buy-in and the articles will become eccentric. Perhaps if I have something clever to add, it’ll go in one of the Wikibook open textbook pages.
  • Improper it may be, but a good number of enterprizing folk have merged online stats with Google’s too good to be true (unless you’re using Safari; hint to move to Firefox) mapping service. Improper insofar as it violates the service agreement, but Google isn’t shying away from the press. Crime in Chicago, Craigslist apartment listings, and cheap gas are all featured at Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space. Such a map for Unitarian Universalist congregations would be nice.
  • Jordon Cooper points to a thought-provoking paper about the finances of the early church.

  1. Don’t give up on wikiHow yet. wikiHow is strongly considering adding some type of open, share alike license to the site. We are inviting wikiHow community members to comment on the discussion page behind the copyright policy page:
