Expected, as Google is not merely converged with evil, it sets the agenda.

Blogger Ceerilan May 21, 2017 2:15 AM  

All you have to be to get that treatment is a nation with laws that can ban Google.

Blogger Michael Maier May 21, 2017 2:27 AM  

That's damned funny.

I brought something to Infogalactic's attention today, demonstrates a similar point about Wiki:

Scumbags. So damned petty.

Maybe perspective filtering should be done based on the civilizations outlined in Samuel P Huntington's "Clash of Civilizations".

Can't wait to see what Google does with Israel.

Border? Just a social construct.

Any chance there's a non-Facebook way to see this?

Shoot, it's got Taiwan as a province and the 10 dash line and everything.

Infogalactic was a timely idea... Pretty soon everyone is going to have their own dictionary, atlas, and encyclopedia. Not sure how that world is going to work but it'll probably be a violent one. Each to his own tent, O Israel...

Go to Wikipedia. Look up the entry for "common basilisk". Look at the edits. "biblical miracle" edited to "Fairy Tale" edited (now) to "biblical story".

Heaven only knows what other kind of bias they're introducing dependent on various factors.

Re: maps, there was uproar a few years back in Japan when G. introduced overlays of antique maps onto their modern ones: some clever anon discovered that the old maps clearly depicted where the Japanese "Untouchables" lived, and that these people (or their descendants) still largely lived in the same neighbourhoods. Allowing thus for all manner of muh discrimination.

The J-SJWs were having none of it and demanded a takedown.

Google acceded.

Haven't the nations of the world *always* had a perspective filter? Maybe we are just noticing it now. (The USA, blinkered? Pshaw!)

If so, Vox is building Infogalactic along the lines of how people and the nations already work. Google (the Globalist shill) doesn't admit/advertise it to anyone; Vox is straight up about it.

Challenges from this? Sure, but those were going to come anyway.

And, the low life G will not let you skip ads on utube anymore. and, often, you are put into a loop on the ad and have to jump hoops to get to your utube.
A holes...

Can we get a Southern perspective on where Union borders end?

Blogger dc.sunsets May 21, 2017 10:09 AM  

He who controls (knowledge of the past) controls (what people think about) the present, and he who controls the present controls the future.

Unless of course one embraces socionomics, and sees that added to the above is another layer, one that invisibly compels people to spontaneously reframe what they know of the past, to distrust what the knowledge-controllers tell them about the past & the present, and thus produce the surprises that occur throughout history.

Control is an illusion.

Blogger pnq8787 May 21, 2017 10:29 AM  

The map of the U.S. should have some interesting perspectives going forward.

Blogger Silly but True May 21, 2017 10:44 AM  

Either still show U.S. as British or possibly unaligned collection of Vox's people - or both - or gtfo.

1984, it was called the memory hole.

Now it is the vanishing point of perspective filtering.

Oh, and where are Israel's borders and what is the area called?

And apparently Google AMP sites are never considered fake news.
Cuck, Cuck, Go-ogle. News that spins crockwise.

Difference is Infogalactic will let the user select the perspective; Google doesn't appear to offer this option. That's why I support IG and you should too.

Apologies. I thought that was implied. Concur, of course.

Blogger Dave May 21, 2017 12:27 PM  

No apology necessary. I'm blaming the fact that I'm still on my first cup of coffee for misreading your post.

Blogger Cecil Henry May 21, 2017 2:14 PM  

Here is an interesting article on how the Chinese perceive out 'liberal' left in the West.


What do Chinese net users think of the white left?

On the subject of perspective filtering: I was just looking at a history page on Infogalactic. Can we expunge the odious, anti-Christian and meaningless "CE" and "BCE" from all dates? They are very jarring to read.

If hiding the Christian roots of the calendar means so much to some, perhaps there might be a configuration page with options to allow the reader to set the calendar he prefers?

Blogger Cail Corishev May 21, 2017 6:49 PM  

There's a discussion about BC/AD vs. CE/BCE somewhere on IG, maybe on the Galaxians Boardroom page. I think the consensus was that it's fine to "fix" pages to BC/AD, especially when you're referencing older sources that used those; but that if you're quoting a source that uses CE/BCE, it might be best to leave it alone. You might want to hunt down that discussion to be sure, though.

Blogger MNW May 21, 2017 10:23 PM  

Everything can be propiganda and national claims will be shown on national maps. Google should indicated the territory as disputed and leave it at that.

As to the AD/CE issue... I agree it is best to leave it a written, but have the first use of any of the terms (BC,AD,CE, or BCE) have a link for to the IG page explaining the use. I agree it is annoying, but less so if it it constant on the page (excepting quoted text).

Blogger plishman May 21, 2017 10:33 PM  

Agreed.

Blogger plishman May 21, 2017 10:53 PM  

I've just read the Infogalactic boardroom thread on BC/BCE AD/CE.

The atheist position stated by poster Jason Carswell - in service of his faith - is to leverage inertia, to leave BCE/CE references intact throughout Infogalactic if they are already predominant. No doubt they are, given Wikipedia is the source of most of them.

One of the core functions of Infogalactic (and alt tech generally) is to reverse the cultural, political, historical, intellectual and spiritual discontinuity that has taken place since the Left's Long March through the institutions began to bite, some 50 years ago.

Anonymous Wooly Phlox May 22, 2017 12:04 AM  

Throwing it out there...

A script for Infogalactic that lets us get a side-by-side comparison of both IG and Wikipedia pages, with changes highlighted?

Also, is Forkbot fully open-source? Can Wiki adopt and use Forkbot for IG, and, if so, would that be a problem or a boon -- them ganking IG's shit because they see which way the national, and developed-world -- mood is going?

If the Foundation (love it... -- Azimov) sees that IG is trending to surpass them, they will. They'll mirror the current bullshit, and save it for when the national mood goes the other direction, at which point they'll replace the IG-Wiki with the old Wiki-Wiki.

Anonymous Wooly Phlox May 22, 2017 12:22 AM  

Oh, and The Foundation won't tell their faithful donors that they ganked IG's content.

They'll just say, "We're rolling out 2.0 for FREE! PLEASE DONATE VIA PAYPAL!"

Nah. That's SF/F right there.

I wonder what the differences are, at this point, in the respective Trayvon Martin pages are? Or any other potentially controversial topics, let alone the Astronomy page?

A single-click "compare" function would be amazing.

Thank you for volunteering for all this work. Hopefully you can recruit some willing coders here or on Gab to help you make IG even more great!

Exactly. The point is not to slow the gradual slide of the Overton Window to the Left, it's to stop it, and move it back.

Blogger JP May 22, 2017 9:31 AM  

They act like it takes Google for a Japanese person to figure out a neighborhoods reputation! Instead of stopping them, it merely blinds foreigners from figuring out what's going on.

Idiots, through and through. SJWs truly are a self-defeating enemy.

Can't wait to see what Google does with Japan.
