After watching Dwayne's video I searched for Panis which wasn't what I was expecting but about 20 clicks later I ended up on Philosophy.

Sooooo I think that if no one is going to register or copyright "wikijourney" then we should at least put it up on the urban dictionary.  My friends here in California are using it as a legitimate noun.  Someone take the credit or it will go to Smoov B who doesn't deserve it.

I say go ahead and urbanify it. We can't hide it away and keep it to ourselves; we should be sharing this gift with the world. In your citations you should consider referencing xkcd's work on the subject. I was trying to come up with an example but then I remembered that this thread should provide some good options for that :)

it appears matt first coined the term on 11/30/2005 and the related term for sending people on wikijourneys "wikimendation" was coined by me on 12/29/2005 and i don't believe either of us has received our coins yet but i agree this should be shared as it may be our chief contribution to humanity

sharing this / reminding myself to look at this more later when I have actual time.  Makes me feel like getting on some sort of pedestrian-friendly soapbox; or moving to Davis CA (where iswas Bill again??)

Discovered this via a KSP mod: behold the SeaDragon - the proposed successor to the Saturn V that would have been powerful enough to lift the assembled ISS to orbit in a single launch

On the topic of proposed ideas: the human inference task force aka how to keep dumbasses 10000 years from now from digging up our nuclear waste ideas include coding messages like this somehow:

This place is a message and part of a system of messages pay attention to it! Sending this message was important to us. We considered ourselves to be a powerful culture. This place is not a place of honor no highly esteemed deed is commemorated here nothing valued is here. What is here is dangerous and repulsive to us. This message is a warning about danger. The danger is in a particular location. It increases toward a center. The center of danger is here of a particular size and shape and below us. The danger is still present in your time as it was in ours. The danger is to the body and it can kill. The form of the danger is an emanation of energy. The danger is unleashed only if you substantially disturb this place physically. This place is best shunned and left uninhabited.
