Another curve ball
This is hardly the first time one of our projects has taken an unanticipated curve, but even so, I'm sorry to have to inform everyone that SocialGalactic 1.0 has gone down for the count. By which I mean that we are permanently pulling the plug on this particular form of it. I'll explain more in my Devstream tomorrow, but the long and the short of it is that the Infogalactic team has unanimously decided that our best course of action was to shut it down and return to our original Plan A of developing our own social media technology on our own servers.

While we appreciated the short cut that the possibility of working with Fediway offered us, after further discussions with them, we have mutually concluded that it is best for both organizations to go their separate ways.

Developing the necessary social media technology will, of course, take time, though probably not as much as you might imagine, so we will gladly refund everyone who supported the Burn Unit with the expectation of having Bronze, Silver, or Gold access to SocialGalactic. Please just email me with the relevant email address and I'll take care of it. Speaking for the team, I sincerely apologize to all 2,500 of our users for the inconvenience involved, and we all very much appreciate the strong interest that the Infogalactic community has indicated in its own social media site.

That being said, we will NOT be doing any crowdfunding for SocialGalactic 2.0 for reasons that will be very obvious in 4-6 weeks.

The Operator

Okay, I'm watching the Vox vs JF video. I'm about to turn it off because it's inducing the type of existential boredom which only comes about when two self-appointed intellectuals debate, but the nut of Vox's argument seems to be that not enough time has passed between the coming about of, for example, chimpanzees and humans for the former to have become the latter merely through random genetic mutation, because it takes a minimum number of successful generations in order for a particular mutation to become dominant. I don't know enough about the science to say if that's a good argument or not.
It really was awful. The whole video was Vox repeating that it takes a long time for genes to differentiate to "fixation" (all individuals in a taxon have that gene), JFG repeatedly pointing out that the vast majority of genetic differences between taxa are not at fixation and are statistical differences over the whole genome, Vox failing to get that and repeating it again, ad nauseam.

Oh he seems to still be going on about it.

This gave me a chuckle, WRT the "capricious, inconsistent, or unpredictable" bit. Though I guess he's right insofar as it is his blog.

It is his blog, but Mr. Rhetoric should be aware that "trust me, I have standards" is not enough to deflect people's perception of caprice.

And as he also should be aware, making your standards public and concrete is alpha, because you are confident you won't be rules-lawyered or caught (dead) being capricious. Why, I'd go so far as to say that only a Gamma feels it's necessary to demand people trust him without question.

Everything's always obvious a month from now. I'm fucking sick of waiting on the month from now. If it was a baby it'd be tugging at my pants and wondering if daddy don't love it, the fucking month from now.

Hm, that's odd. I thought all the comments were from yes men already, with an occasional wild comment from unsuspecting blog-wanderer, that was quickly labeled as "gamma" and put in the corner with Vox Day's patronizing, paranoid spew of nonsense, I always read in my mind as if it was written by an ugly aged spinster.

What's the point of blogging if the comments are not allowed? He really doesn't understand that the value of his blog was in possible interesting discussion in comments, does he?

For a super genius he doesn't really understand the Internet much. It's probably from being a beta manlet.

Today is a big day...

First, just 2 notes of Vox sniping like a cat lady as his debate partner. (gee, no wonder folks don't want to debate him)

(no source on this, WTF?)

Which makes posts like these where he ALMOST has a point so frustrating. (how can a guy who is supposed to run businesses not get how to market yourself or ideas?)

Thing is, Peterson just took the high road. He did imply that Vox is intelligent--just vain about it--and said it was fine for the right not to be monolithic. He's okay with being criticized, even if the criticism is very "low-blow".

What I like is Vox's "I'm not in love with my intelligence, in fact I don't even care. I don't care so much I'm going to tell you about it" routine. He comes off so pretentious about it, so...in love with it.
