Biographicon Is OK With Us, Wikipedia Still Scorns Our Existence

Enter Biographicon, a new wiki style site that does not require you to be “notable” at all in order to have your own article, to our rescue. A set of simplistic and naïve guidelines – items such as not including your birth date or address is part of the Biographicon rulebook – are all that stand in the way of your glory. The new site is essentially a mirror of Wikipedia, at least at first. After the initial articles got up connections can be made. You know, the same connections you can already make in Facebook or MySpace.
As nice as it is to have a place to park our protuberant asses on the tubes, I can’t help but feel sites like this are a waste of space. When you start a business your goal is to identify a need and then fill it better than the competition. Half-assed attempts like Biographicon or Dikipedia (not what you’re thinking) need to die. The bubble burst of Web 2.0 is not arriving fast enough.
