Today, I stubled over a new language project of the Wikipedia, the Klingon Wikipedia. No, I don't understand a word, but the mere fact of the existence of this wiki is funny enough for me to post it here.
The Unmaintained Free Software wiki is now online and has been declared by me to be the authoritative source for unmaintained or orphaned Free Software projects. The old website is gone, but I will port the old contents to the wiki step by step. Please bear with me.
All content of the wiki is licensed unter the terms of the GNU FDL.
Again, if you know of any unmaintained project or want to take over maintenance of a currently unmaintained project, go ahead.
This rise of interest in the site may also be partly due to the recent slashdotting of the How I Feed My Cats with Linux article by Chris McAvoy, which has been listed on Crazy Hacks for some time now.
Google plans to support the free online encyclopedia Wikipedia with servers and bandwidth.
Jimmy Wales, founder of the Wikipedia, has talked to Sergei Brin and Larry Page (the founders of Google) already, and a discussion between them and the Wikimedia Foundation on a private IRC channel is planned.
The offer is said to be with no strings attached, i.e. Wikipedia doesn't have to place Google AdWords in their pages in return.
This will surely raise quite a heated debate, as many might fear that the Wikipedia will not remain independent anymore...
This looks like a good candidate for the Crazy Hacks wiki: GPS::Tron is a real-life remake of the classical TRON game using modern technologies like GPS, Bluetooth and GSM or GPRS. Two players run around in the real world (carrying a GPS device) and "draw" trails. They can see their own trail as well as that of their respective opponent on their cell phones. The first player who hits his own trail or that of his opponent loses.
