Biographicon is a website that allows the common internaut to make biographic wikipedia-like pages about themselves, their friends, and their enemies. This curious hybrid between facebook and wikipedia smells of desperation. But it's well-designed desperation, so we're featuring it here on this slow internet news day.
To get the site up and running, CEO Ethan Herdrick told The Chronicle of Higher Education that the company copied about 1 100,000 Wikipedia bios of “notables.” And by notables he means losers.
Biographicon is like wikibios.com but one notch less annoying. A small notch. Everyone join together and count down with me, how fast will all of these entries end up here?
D for dull, Internets.
