Re: <nettime> shocklogs wikipedia entry

Update: Wikipedia editors are again considering to delete the shocklog 
entry. Interesting remark is this context is their suspicion of 
'foreign language' blogs being involved as references. But who is 
foreign in this case? English for those write Dutch? Or Dutch for those 
know only English? Interesting to see how Larry Singer's Citizendium is 
putting pressure on Wikipedia to get rid of 'neologisms' and barbarian 
non-Anglo knowledge... Best, Geert


An editor has nominated the article Shocklog for deletion, under the 
Articles for deletion process. We appreciate your contributions, but 
the nominator doesn't believe it satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for 
inclusion, and has explained why in the nomination (also see What 
Wikipedia is not and Deletion policy). Your opinions on why the topic 
of the article meets inclusion criteria and what should be done with 
the article are welcome: participate in the discussion by editing 
Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Shocklog. Add four tildes like this 
Ë?Ë?Ë?Ë? to sign your comments. You can also edit the article Shocklog 
during the discussion, but do not remove the "Articles for Deletion" 
template (the box at the top of the article), this will not end the 
deletion debate. Jayden54Bot 13:37, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

Delete Lacks sources demonstration sufficient use to satisfy WP:NEO. 
Sources consist of a couple of foreign-language blogs and an on-line 
Master's thesis. Need published sources complying with WP:RS

Delete, basically a neologism, and an imprecise one at that. Is Stile 
Project a "shocklog"? Lankiveil 05:16, 21 January 2007 (UTC).
