Pictures, copyedit, factcheck, wikify[edit]

Could someone add pictures for these stories and perhaps copyedit / fact-check / wikify the Tokyo stock story? Thanks. :) Unforgettableid 08:52, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

While it is a nice gesture, all content under the CC-BYLicense is one way compatible with the GFDL (you can copy anything from WN to pedia but not pedia to WN).--Cspurrier 15:59, 14 December 2005 (UTC)
Is this a recent development? IIRC, I heard a while back they were two-way incompatible. Unforgettableid 04:53, 15 December 2005 (UTC)

Good idea[edit]

Technology Briefs are a great idea, I plan to try to write a few :)--Cspurrier 16:00, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

Great! Because I realized when I wrote this brief that finding a good story that's easy to summarize can be hard. :) Unforgettableid 18:26, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

Advocacy[edit]

Hi. I like what you're doing with these briefs — in fact, I like the briefs model very much. However, the recent Ruby story started to cross over into editorial space a bit, with advocacy etc. Please try to keep those aspects of the briefs out for now, so that we can still retain an NPOV towards technology. Thanks :) -- IlyaHaykinson 03:35, 15 December 2005 (UTC)

Good point. (It was meant to be a Slashdot story but I was too late.) :) Is what I did now ok? Feel free to revert it if bad, but I think the 2 links are a good service. Unforgettableid 04:52, 15 December 2005 (UTC)
I think that makes much more sense. Thanks for taking care of it. -- IlyaHaykinson 04:59, 15 December 2005 (UTC)
