So somehow I got the days confused and managed to post a Things Thursday on a Wednesday, and completely ignore Website Wednesday in the process, so here’s my repentance:
Wikipedia is really looking to push the boundaries of decency with their latest project: Porn Stars. From the site:
The project aims to implement a consistent format for articles of pornographic actors, actresses and models, as well as related infobox templates. Additionally, the project is to implement a standard means of procuring information on pornographic actresses, as well as to address what is proper for an encyclopedic article on porn stars.
I guess if you’re going to be the place to go for online information about anything and everything, you can’t just ignore the porn world. That would be like ignoring a substantial part of the history of the Internet. Surprisingly (or not surprsingly depending on how you view the ‘Pedia) the articles are actually pretty informative, giving a complete career history, filmography, appearances, and much more. Plus, you can finally get the “real or fake” question answered by more than just a “dude, totally”. It’s a dirty world, but somebody’s got to document it.
