After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


Wikipedia Abuse

Posted on Thursday, August 16 @ 21:35:16 PST by Duke_Ferris
Well, it's official, like so many other companies and groups, Electronic Arts got caught editing their own Wikipedia entry to make themselves look good. Can you say "backfired"?

Political candidates have done it, CEO's have done it, and it still looks just as pathetic. In this case they were removing references to the EA Spouse, an open letter critical of the long overtime hours that EA programmers were being forced to work, unpaid. It caused an industry uproar and wide changes in EA's worker policies.

Also, oddly, the were removing information about Trip Hawkins, the founder of EA. Possibly because his new company, Digital Chocolate, competes with EA in the mobile game market?

I find Wikipedia to be a fascinating tool, and I link to it frequently. I have a strict policy that no GR staff may edit Game Revolution's entry for any reason. Even when it's been molested. For example, by looking at the history, I can see now that on August 1st, someone replaced my name with "James Bond" in every instance. I guess I should be flattered. Either way, it was fixed in a couple days.

Our current entry has a number of factual errors, plenty of missing stuff, and other bits that I would consider crufty. However, I view it as a social experiment, a test of Wikipedia if you will.
I'll give you one missing fact for free: Classic GR writer Tom Anderson went on to become the founder of MySpace, and is currently the president. Nice guy.
