Wikification (A Call to Action) and Other Updates
The Chloroquine Wars Part CI
"Wikis work best in environments where you're comfortable delegating control to the users of the system." -Ward Cunningham (developer of the very first wiki)
Life since the Great Flood is still complicated. My wife and I spent most of the past two days touring houses, filling out forms, and buying replacement furniture. Since my last article, I haven't been able to keep up with emails and requests from media, each of whom I'd want to investigate a bit before even responding to. We are two weeks into living out of a hotel and pushing to get into a home by the end of the week. Fingers crossed. There is so much data to sort and write about, and the hobgoblins of propaganda, ever eager to run the Red Queen's race of the Kunlangeta, seem humblingly numerous. They also don't seem eager to leave an asterisk that mentions the numerous biases (such as here and here) pointed out by other researchers and statisticians, much less address the contradictions with the global data. It sometimes seems foolish to hope that many of them will understand their role as merchants of misery until after Moloch watches the spirit of humanity leave its vessel.
The World Protests
After reading one of the bad cat's articles, I ran with it. It seems as if almost every Western nation seeing authoritarian policies is seeing protests. That's all.

Expanding the Campfire.wiki Editors Circle -- A Call to Action
"The more political the topic, the less useful is Wikipedia." -Mathew's Law
A group of volunteers I organized a few months ago has built a wiki at campfire.wiki, and started to populate it with largely pandemic-era content. This task is huge and people have limited time, so we are opening up the circle of trust a bit now---to paying Rounding the Earth subscribers.
