Adam Curry Likes Himself, What a Shocker

December 1st, 2005 | by Mike |

No way! You mean to tell me that Adam Curry, former MTV VJ and one of the pioneers of Podcasting, was busting editing the Wikipedia entry on Podcasting to make himself look more important?! I know, I can’t believe it either! I think the real question here is: Why does anyone give a crap?! In fact, if there is a “side” to choose, I’m with Curry. Let me explain.

So you make a encyclopedia that anyone can edit. Very hippie, very peace and love, very cool…and also very dumb if you can honestly tell me that you never thought this would happen. Of course this is going to happen! This isn’t the first time, this won’t be the last time, and in fact, its probably happening right now. People are going to want to get themselves in the world-renowned Wikipedia, what a shocker, and if they are already in it, people will want to get a bigger piece of the pie. I thought this was known, I thought this was assumed, but for some reason, someone busted Curry editing the Podcast article a few times and now people are whining and making lame titled blog posts about it.

Isn’t the great Wikipedia able to handle this? What do you do if someone changes the Chicago Cubs page to read nothing but: “The Cubs suck!” (Well thats a bad example, being thats actually true and all.) ? You catch it and change it. That system goes on all the time everyday, and no one hears about it. This is no different. If the system is as great as everyone keeps telling everyone else, this should be a non-issue, a mere blip, nothing. Fix it, add Curry’s name to the list of millions of people that like themselves and go have a Coke.

So the guy tried to change a post. So what? I say good for Adam! He rolled the dice a few times and edited an article that pertained to him. If he did it and most people agreed with the changes, then they stay and until someone deletes that post and replaces with a picture of a girl with her top off get seems bigger and everything is fine. If no one likes his edits, then the big Wikipedia gods change it back and everyone goes on with our lives. Thats the way Wikipedia works: People change things, everyone discusses, actions are taken or not. You can almost here the Lion King soundtrack start to amp up…”Its the circle of life!!!” Curry rolled the dice and this time it came up craps. Oh well. Who cares. Let move on and let the Wikipedia guys worry about the kid in Tulsa that keeps editing things so that he co-stars in all of Hillary Duff’s movies.

    Childish idiot !! Cubs suck – Sox Suck. Idiots that don’t have a clue about ANY sports, or hate a team because it’s on the other side of the city, are a dime a dozen. It’s a standard reply for morons. As a life long suffering Cub fan, I tell it like it is. They were inept, looked lazy, disinterested and stole the salaries they were paid. They cheated every good Cub fan that paid good bucks to walk into Wrigley. The 2005 Chicago Cubs win the “underachievers award for last season. This hurts really bad, get ready, gulp, the best team in baseball won the World Series. Even though I don’t like the Sox or the majority of their fans that I DO KNOW, facts are facts. They played inspired baseball, great baseball and are the champs, which they deserve. My only beef with the awards that were given out after the season was; Ken Williams should’ve been the exec of the year – and I mean far and away. He made one good move after another. He loaded up the year before with horses for his pitching staff that don’t break down every spring. Garcia, Hernandez, Contreas. Polite, Hermanson etc. One hell of a job putting that team together. Williams was robbed.
