Removal of the "Neologism" marker[edit]

I removed the Neologism marker after leaving comments on Rich_Farmbrough's talk page. -- RussAbbott (talk) 03:07, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Garbage dump is another example of what might appear to be a "neologism" that is allowed as a Wikipedia page. (It redirects to Landfill, which doesn't really seem right to me. But that's besides the point.) -- RussAbbott (talk) 03:13, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

In fact, Garbage dump has waste treatment and waste disposal on its page, apparently without objection. Easily accessible from there is landfill gas. These lead to Hazardous waste, which includes radioactive waste, medical waste, and occupational exposure. It's a short jump to Tobacco smoking. -- RussAbbott (talk) 03:14, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Correction of the "Other uses" header[edit]

The "Other uses" header of this article said the following:

This page is about the information processing that occurs in large-scale and typically networked groups. For information about the how individuals, especially children, establish (or fail to establish) successful relationships with society, see Social information processing theory.

Reading the article on Social information processing theory, one can see that this heading misrepresents the latter article. I therefore changed the heading to the following:

This page is about the information processing that occurs in large-scale and typically networked groups. For a theory about the nature of online communication, see Social information processing theory.

Further investigation reveals that there does indeed exist yet another meaning of "social information processing" which has to do with cognitive development. It there seems necessary to add a third article, which could be called [Social Information Processing (Cognition)]. In this case, the header should become:
This page is about the information processing that occurs in large-scale and typically networked groups. For a theory about the nature of online communication, see Social information processing theory. For how individuals, especially children, establish (or fail to establish) successful relationships with society, see Social Information Processing (Cognition).
