All About Me
AceMyth is a 24-year-old from Israel* and an undergraduate Technion student of mathematics and computer science. He is aware of the fact that talking about oneself in the third person is pompous and silly, and will therefore stop it.
*Don't worry, I am on a strict regime of medication to suppress my uncontrollable seizures of indiscriminate PoV propaganda insertation.
- A bit in general copyediting.
- Two essays/guidelines (Wikipedia: Avoid weasel words, Wikipedia: Avoid thread mode)
- Some in Philosophy of Science (Occam's Razor, Falsifiability, Bayesian inference, The problem of induction...)
- Some more in Cyberculture (Shipping (fandom), and do you need any other examples, given that?...)
- TONS in Category:Fancruft (Mithos Yggdrasill, Harry Potter (character), practically the entirety of Category:Naruto...)
As you can see, N*B = constant, where N is the notability of a subject and B ise the degree to which I've bothered to contribute to it.
I wonder whether the guys who write the Psychometric Entrance Test will one day run across the article I created for their test-a-mathing and retroactively restore the 9 points from my English section score that got lost on the way from 150 to 141 through who knows where? This might enable them to save face, given that their current evaluation says I'm better at math than at English (I routinely tend to forget that X²=9 has two solutions).
ZOMG I'm Famous!
By chance, one of my more frivolous comments was featured on "Collaborative Authoring on the Web: A Genre Analysis of Online Encyclopedias", a paper presented at the 39th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences in 2004 by William Emigh and Susan C. Herring:
In contrast, the Wikipedia discussion of this node includes
many informal features common to web chats, such as first person pronouns, contractions, emoticons (X_X), and informal lexicon ('info'):
:This page- which "Friendship" redirects to- contains some relevant info, but seems to discuss romantic relationships more than it does normal friendship; there's nothing here on the formation of friendship, what defines a friendship, the typical emotional dependance of humans on friendship, how friendships drift apart, and so forth. I'm sure Wikipedia can do better than this in an issue so fundamental to society. (And I'd try to do something myself, but 1. I'm not sure on whether to edit "Friendship" into its own article or edit this one, and 2. I'm... tired... X_X so this may have to wait a bit.) -- AceMyth 01:50, 19 Dec 2003 [WD]
