I use Wikipedia dozens of times a day. My most important internet resource.
Here’s the donation page.
Here’s an excellent list weighing the pros and cons of donating to Wikimedia.
What will the most popular news sources of the future look like?
I’m hopeful for the soon to be launched Wikitribune.
People today mostly get their news from TV (not bad) and social media (terrible).
My favourite news source right now is Axios, just 6 months old.
Axios covers 7 areas: politics, tech, media trends, health, science, energy, and future of work (AI, robotics, etc.).
They want to deliver the cleanest, smartest, most efficient and trust-worthy experience for readers and advertisers alike.
So … Washington Post begat Politico begat Axios.
If interested, start by signing up for any of the Axios email newsletters.

I hate 99% of advertisements. All businesses that rely on advertising dread me.
Google and Facebook hate guys like me. Apple and Amazon don’t much care.
All companies should evolve to be less reliant on advertising. Micropayment are the best alternatives still, I think.
My online life is greatly enhanced with extensions that block advertising. Right now I have AdBlock installed on Safari. Adblock Plus installed in Chrome.
I don’t really have much of a preference between the two.
Finally. All my sites are on WordPress.com. Happy. Happy. 🙂

I’ve been sending money to Bluehost every month for years. It is still rated one of the best hosts though I’ve been dissatisfied from the start.
Bluehost sites frequently go down.
When you inquire why, they blame the customer. 😦
Seems Bluehost is unable to keep servers shared by many people secure. WordPress.com has almost never been hacked.
One guy at Bluehost is super. Matt Greenwood <firstname.lastname@example.org> If you MUST host on a for profit server, I’d recommend you contact him.
WordPress.com is by far the best of the free web hosting services. I do pay for some add-on services with WordPress.com. Happy to support that excellent company
Quite good. So far. I like the dysfunctional lead character. And the Tech perspective.
