Wikipedia - Handling of Facts and a Delusional Sense of Community

Wikipedia and its reliability of handling facts and a delusional sense of community


Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia. Built up by thousands of contributors and its tenets being safe-guarded by more than a thousand administrators. Its essence is to provide a compendium of reliable information, centered with a goal to be a one-stop site from obtaining information about a notable subject on a summarized manner backed by references from external sites. The keyword is "notable". Although the community has provided an ever-developing tenets and policies to remain a resource of such quality; how does the continuous goal to the gratification of notability and verifiability costs it in expense of proliferation of facts and ideals of a community.

Part 3 of East Philippines Seaboard Mapping Expedition 2015

Day 5 East Philippines Seaboard Mapping Expedition - Schadow1 Expeditions


February 27 - March 5, 2015
After leaving Eastern Mindanao via Surigao Strait for the first four days of our mapping expedition, we have begun to set foot for the first time in this part of Eastern Visayas on San Ricardo, and scoured through the municipalities at the western side of Southern Leyte. It is our fifth day in the expedition and we woke up being embraced by the sun as it rises from the east while slumped on the white sands and turquoise waters around Canigao Island.

Part 2 of East Philippines Seaboard Mapping Expedition 2015

Day 3 to 4 East Philippines Seaboard Mapping Expedition 2015 - Schadow1 Expeditions


February 27 - March 5, 2015
As we continue on our narrative to the East Philippines Mapping Expedition of 2015, we have temporarily left the main island of Mindanao towards the easternmost island of the Philippines. We have already covered 4 of the 13 provinces of the country in our 7-day mapping mission. Primarily covering towns of Philippines where it meets the waves of the Pacific and the wrath of typhoons during typhoon season. This is with a goal in ensuring vulnerable provinces are properly mapped for navigation accuracy in times of disasters while at the same time discovering the beauty of the Philippines.
