Wikivoyage aka Wikitravel without ads has been launched

Prokur Prokur writes  |  about a year and a half ago

Prokur writes "Wikivoyage, an ads-free travel encyclopedia, is officially launched with forked content and rebel editors from Wikitravel.
The drama started back in 2006, when Internet Brands inc. has bought Wikitravel and stuffed it with Google Ads. Several key contributors were against such website monetization and decided to leave the "free" project some years later.
Internet Brands even tried to sue not paid editors, but the claims were dismissed by the United States District Court of Central California few months later.
Since now personal appeals by Jimmy Wales will appear on the header of Wikipedia even more often, as somebody has to pay for one more Wiki anyway"

Russian Superjet 100 crashed during demo flight

Prokur Prokur writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Prokur writes "A brand new Russian Sukhoi Superjet 100 airliner on a demonstration flight with 37 passengers (mostly future clients and journalists) and 8 Russian crew members on board went missing after it took off from airport in Jakarta. After an extensive search, rescuers concluded, based on the widespread debris field on the side of a ridge, that the aircraft directly impacted the rocky side of Mount Salak and there was "no chance of survival.""

The Best Blogging Platform

Prokur Prokur writes  |  more than 2 years ago

Since web journals became popular I have tried many different blogging platforms including running own little websites for keeping records and I have to state that recently the number of leading blogging platform had significally reduced because most of them lack modern features or the readers auditory is to narrow.
If you are looking for the most modern features, then I would recomend to use blogger.
In case you want to publish your entries to larger amount of public, then go for Facebook entries.
And if you want to create a photoblog, I would go for flickr.
