At work we have just launched a web site for ConML, a simple conceptual modelling language for non-experts in information technologies.

Drop by and let us know what you think. Thanks.


Get to philosophy

Try the following:

  1. Open up Wikipedia.
  2. Go to a random article.
  3. Click on the first link on the article. This will take you to another article.
  4. Keep clicking on the first link of the new article each time.

So what, you’ll ask. Well, according to this, 93% of all starting point articles will eventually lead you to the article Philosophy. And, I quote:

The question of why everything goes to philosophy is probably very deep.

My brain hurts.

Mind you, it’s not only for atheists. If you are curious, have questions or just want to lurk and see what others are saying, feel free to drop by anytime.

Donating to Wikimedia Foundation

I use Wikipedia a lot. It’s one of those things that is just there, like the air that I breathe or the spot on my head that I scratch when I need to focus. Just there, always there.

But, as Sue Gardner says, not many people know that Wikipedia is run by a non-profit organisation of about fifty people. They need money for infrastructures, bills and salaries. They use your donations to keep Wikipedia there for all of us. I give them a tiny slice of my winter paycheck every year, hoping that they will still be there when I need them.

If you use Wikipedia, I encourage you to do the same, within your own possibilities. See here.

Atheism in beta
