I am now actively participating in a project which could, someday, destroy all modern thought as we know it.
Fakepedia is basically Wikipedia, but for lies. Hoaxes, frauds, rumors, anything which you could ever make up about a person. For example, George Washington ripped a cherry tree in half with his own teeth for what it said about his mother. Of course it’s completely inaccurate, that’s not the point. The point is, history would be better if it were true. Fakepedia embodies the best of Stephen Colbert’s idea of Truthiness – that how we feel about a subject is much more important than the facts of the matter. Kate Beaton aside, allegorical history is so much more fun than regular history. The myth about Lincoln being born in a log cabin is just as much a part of his story as his depression or the stove pipe hat.

We set up these websites like Facebook and MySpace and develop these huge lists of our friends and not-real-just-internet friends. But what do we do about the people we don’t like? The people I try to avoid in the real world keep finding me on the web, inviting me to be their friends over and over because apparently I must have mis-clicked the last three times I identified them as being not worth my time
Where is the button to mark someone as my enemy? I want a Buddy List, and a Nemesis List. If Facebook lets me poke my friends, I should be able to jab at my enemies. Maybe there could even be a little flash animation of a red pitchfork poking their user icon. Now there’s mass appeal.
