I think their focus moved more and more to automatic data collection as opposed to UGC.
Golden was of interest, thanks for mentioning it. It also had much less strict notability guidelines than wikipedia which is another serious issue with the platform. Unfortunately they shutdown signup got merged into another financial intellicence thing: Section "Golden (wiki, 2019)".
It's almost certain that there are remaining XSSes though given I wrote the markup from scratch. But you'll have to work harder than that.
This page is not the top Google hit for "bawuzzzz". I love it so much.

And yes, academia is broken beyond belief, like the rest of education.
But a PhD with the intention of doing something cool next not necessarily in academia like working in a research department or trying to create a startup is not so bad I'd say. But you have to find a good one of course.
I agree you should do something because it is cool. It's just that to me something can only be cool if "it is fucking revolutionary". Though perhaps OurBigBook is a notable counter example lol
And glad to hear that my posts helped :-)
This might not be the best place to say this, but I want to thank you for this github.com/cirosantilli/linux-kernel-module-cheat (and various stackoverflow posts where I keep seeing you). Helped me during my internship in understanding how gem5 works.

"Video 2. Freeman Dyson - Why I don't like the PhD system (95/157) by Web of Stories (2016) Source." "He never did a PhD, and said that academia was a waste of time, and that you can get as much done by working part time a decent job and doing your research part time, since you skip all the bullshit of academia like this."
I still want to pursue higher education but this made me think about the bad side of academia at a higher level.
> Which subject btw?
What you imagined pretty much (Computer Architecture), but I'm also interested in Operating Systems and programming languages. So if I were to go for higher education it would be around these.
> Why are young people investing that in 2024...
I was thinking more from the perspective of "hey I like this subject, let's see if it has more interesting topics to explore..." so I didn't care about Moore's law much. Hehe.
But I'm also looking at what Onur Mutlu is doing in bioinformatics and it looks cool.
OK, computer architecture I imagine based on LinkedIn. Why are young people investing that in 2024 I don't understand, haven't you guys heard of something called "the end of Moore's law"?
Hello! I don't understand! A good Master's degree or PhD that you like and can afford would generally improve your chances of doing something interesting in life later on.
Explain yourself!
Which subject btw?
If you are interested in molecular biology techniques then you can look into Current Protocols in Molecular Biology
Pinned article: ourbigbook/introduction-to-the-ourbigbook-project
Welcome to the OurBigBook Project! Our goal is to create the perfect publishing platform for STEM subjects, and get university-level students to write the best free STEM tutorials ever.
Everyone is welcome to create an account and play with the site: ourbigbook.com/go/register. We belive that students themselves can write amazing tutorials, but teachers are welcome too. You can write about anything you want, it doesn't have to be STEM or even educational. Silly test content is very welcome and you won't be penalized in any way. Just keep it legal!

Intro to OurBigBook

We have two killer features:
  1. topics: topics group articles by different users with the same title, e.g. here is the topic for the "Fundamental Theorem of Calculus" ourbigbook.com/go/topic/fundamental-theorem-of-calculus
    Articles of different users are sorted by upvote within each article page. This feature is a bit like:
    • a Wikipedia where each user can have their own version of each article
    • a Q&A website like Stack Overflow, where multiple people can give their views on a given topic, and the best ones are sorted by upvote. Except you don't need to wait for someone to ask first, and any topic goes, no matter how narrow or broad
    This feature makes it possible for readers to find better explanations of any topic created by other writers. And it allows writers to create an explanation in a place that readers might actually find it.

  2. local editing: you can store all your personal knowledge base content locally in a plaintext markup format that can be edited locally and published either:
    • to OurBigBook.com to get awesome multi-user features like topics and likes
    • as HTML files to a static website, which you can host yourself for free on many external providers like GitHub Pages, and remain in full control
    This way you can be sure that even if OurBigBook.com were to go down one day (which we have no plans to do as it is quite cheap to host!), your content will still be perfectly readable as a static site.
    Figure 1.
    You can publish local OurBigBook lightweight markup files to either OurBigBook.com or as a static website
