Why do we keep letting "David Gerard", who obviously has a negative agenda against Ethereum and crypto in general, curate the Ethereum Wikipedia article?

In the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethereum a wikipedia editor named "David Gerard" seems to be including information about Ethereum Classic in the opening of the article about Ethereum. We don't need a sentence telling us that the subject of the article is "Ethereum"... we know that. It's even before details about when Ethereum was created by Vitalik in the first place.
I see this reddit post from last year too... and this guy seems to just have free reign to emphasize anything he wants in a negative way:
https://www.reddit.com/ethereum/comments/4b76i4/who_is_david_gerard_and_why_does_he_keep_editing/
I'm asking the same question... I wonder what we can do about it.

Who is David Gerard and why does he keep editing the Ethereum Wikipedia page?

If you visit the history and talk pages, you can see that David Gerard is a primary culprit in the editing (down) of the Ethereum Wikipedia page. As it stands now, the article is confusing, has a terrible lede, and missing pertinent details.
Furthermore, it would appear that David does not know much about Ethereum, or at least what makes it different from Bitcoin:
I believe Ethereum's codebase is based on the Bitcoin codebase (though I don't have a cite), so it's a fork of that (as most altcoins are). Hypothetically you could do blockchain software that wasn't, but that's not relevant here. The actual blockchain generated from this is separate - David Gerard (talk) 12:10, 19 March 2016 (UTC)
As a community, what can we do to improve the page against an editor that seems pressed to scrutinize every detail yet is willfully ignorant about that technology? I would love to contribute personally, but doing so would violate the rules of Wikipedia due to my working relationship with Ethereum Foundation.
Thoughts? Suggestions?

The Ethereum wikipedia is a mess

Basically, the Ethereum wikipedia article is poorly written, and is mostly a bunch of semi-random statements related to various events. It does a very poor job explaining what Ethereum is or how it works.
The primary reason for this is that everything on Wikipedia needs to be sourced from a "verifiable third-party". So most of what is on there is references to press articles.
Ethereum Foundation sources obvious are not "third party" in this instance so while they contain a lot of great information, they cannot be used in the article. Can we get some good recommendations for third party sources to use to improve the quality of the article? I think it would be helpful to focus more on the academic/technical side of things first, which is severely lacking.

FYI - Ethereum wikipedia page shows lots of citations with "[third-party source needed]". Not sure how to get that fixed.

Ethereum Wikipedia Page is a good gateway for newcomers

I check the Wikipedia page of Ethereum. It's good that it's been updated with some certain information since my last check some months ago. I think this page can be a good starting point for most people who just wonder "what the heck is the Ethereum?" or "Could I trust this blockchain if I want to participate?", especially since the latest Google search for Ethereum has spiked up.
A lot of valuable stuffs and news have been discussed in this sub-reddit. I think it'd also be nice if we could also externalize our in-depth knowledge to general persons too.

Ethereum fans try to recover the pump with a call to arms to add more advertising material to the Wikipedia article

The Wikipedia article on Ethereum deserves to exist - Ethereum has had sufficient third-party news coverage that there will be plausible reader interest in an article, and sufficient sources to write one.
Of course, the article has gone through a binge-and-purge cycle - as advocates add terrible sources, terrible writing and blatant advertising, then some regular Wikipedia editors come through and make it read a bit more like an encyclopedia article again.
Buoyed by the previous week's pump and depressed by its dump, FinWizard69 issues a call for expansion a few days ago, which led to an amazing rewrite in which they repetitiously hype it up as a "smart contracts" platform, and it's apparently only a cryptocurrency in passing. Orangedie puts out a more blatant call to arms a few days later. Regular Wikipedia editors attempt to clean up the mess and explain how to do sourcing in very small words on the talk page. The article has temporarily been semi-protected so that you have to have had your account at least a few days before you can edit it, to stem the flow of meatpuppets.

About that laughably bad 2002 Chicago Tribune article cited in the Wikipedia page about cryonics

David Gerard and Alex Brown have long been insistent upon citing an article calling cryonics a "pseudoscience" on Wikipedia to push their anti-cryonics, anti-body autonomy agenda.
The article they chose, published in 2002 in the Chicago Tribune by Robert Steinback, is laughably mistaken and/or outdated. Someone on Reddit recently tried to use this article to argue with me against cryonics. I decided to signal-boost and expand upon my response here because honestly, this article is just awful and deserves to be laughed at.
Of course, it will remain on Wikipedia because Gerard and Brown are quite powerful on Wikipedia. There's no point to try to argue against them and their associates. See for example discussion of Gerard's bias in the ethereum Wikipedia article; there is nothing that can be done. That is not the point of this post. The point is just to laugh at the fact that Gerard and Brown would stoop to citing such laughably bad sources to try to push their agenda.
Here are just a few of the mistaken and/or outdated quotes in the article.
> "The largest society in the field, the Society of Cryobiology, explicitly states in its bylaws that those practicing cryonics are not allowed in the society and will be removed if discovered," said a prominent cryobiologist and member of the society's board of directors, who asked that he not be identified.
This is no longer true: https://www.societyforcryobiology.org/assets/documents/Position_Statement_Cryonics_Nov_18.pdf
> Still, with careful control of the cooling process, cryobiologists have succeeded in freezing and thawing cell clusters, embryos and tiny tissue samples such as skin. Cryopreserving larger samples, such as organs, is exponentially more problematic.
Organs have been cryopreserved: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/23830108/
> "I personally feel that it is inevitable that we will perfect suspended animation in 10 to 20 years," said Bill Faloon, a founder of Ft. Lauderdale-based Life Extension Foundation, an organization for people interested in extending the human life span.
In fairness to the anti-cryonics folks, this prediction did not turn out well for Faloon. But Faloon is not exactly a steelman for reality-based cryonics advocacy.
> "This doesn't pass the straight-face test," Goodman said. "There just is no science there. The idea that some time in the future scientists will be able to reconstitute people with the same memories and knowledge--they're not just talking about violating the laws of nature. That's optimism on steroids."
This isn't an argument, it's just contradiction. At best it's an argument to authority.
> Experts can't even say for certain what makes people who they are, Goodman argues. Even if a cryopreserved human could be reanimated, would it still be the person who was frozen? "Think of a memory from childhood," Goodman said. "Where'd that come from? What combination of cells and electrical impulses was able to summon that up? That's a scientific mystery."
Magnets, how do they work?? In contrast to this framing of a total "mystery", there is now (and there was then) extremely good evidence that memories are stored within the structures and biomolecular configurations of the brain. https://link.springer.com/article/10.1186/s12915-016-0261-6
> "There is a supreme egotism in the idea of immortality," said John Baust, director of the Institute of Biomedical Technology at the State University of New York at Binghamton.
Cryonics doesn't offer immortality and choosing cryonics does _not_ mean that you want to live forever. It's just a last-ditch attempt to avoid dying. There's a big difference.
> "The individual who freezes himself or herself to come back in the future makes the assumption he will be a contributor to that society and that they would want him."
I know we're supposed to be laughing but damn. This is an extremely dystopian quote. The idea that we should only allow people in our society who can make contributions is extremely fucked up. I would not want John Baust to be my healthcare proxy.
Just to be clear, the main problem with the arguments presented in this article is that they are not grappling with the actual idea behind cryonics, which is the inference of the functional and structural data based on an imperfect preservation process.
By the way, I'm certainly not going to try to claim that cryonics is a "science," as opposed to a "pseudoscience." Neither of those claims make any sense whatsoever. Cryonics is a subject matter, which can be approached scientifically or non-scientifically to varying degrees. Calling it either a "science" or a "pseudoscience" is just a political talking point. This has been pointed out to Gerard and Brown repeatedly, but they apparently don't care.

ETH poll: Should the Ethereum Foundation Protect its trademarks?

Please vote with your ETH on Stake Voice here: https://ethereum.github.io/stake-voice/?proposal=Ethereum%20Foundation%20should%20enforce%20its%20trademarks (open this URL in Mist). Voting is non-binding and costs nothing (except a tiny amount of gas).
There have been numerous posts on Reddit asking the Ethereum Foundation to protect/enforce its trademarks ("Ethereum" name and logo), which are being used in a deceptive manner by the "Ethereum Classic" project. AFAIK there has been no response yet from a Foundation representative. The purpose of this poll is not to force their hand in any direction, but to provide an indication of the general sentiment among the ETH community.
Arguments for and against the enforcing of Ethereum trademarks:
For:
Against:
Note 1: I'm open to adding more arguments in the foagainst sections. I'll add them in the post, if there are good suggestions in the comments.
Note 2: I'm not affiliated with the Ethereum Foundation in any way. I just think this is an important question and the community should let their opinion be known in a democratic and transparent way.
submitted by Onestone to ethereum [link] [comments]

Blackcoin needs a Foundation. Here is why.

Blackcoin is a community based coin project. We don't want companies and we want to be free and open. However Blackcoin lacks organisation, we all know this.
I don't know how to build a foundation but I know that every bigger successful open source project, that's not backed by a company, has one. Bitcoin, Ethereum, Wikipedia, Apache, Firefox, Debian, Raspberry Pi and what not.
We need to organize fundings, pay developers, bounties, designers, hire advertising, have conferences, coordinate marketing. A chat alone doesn't do that.
I know, that there was a Blackcoin foundation and I know that there been some against it. But we really should get a foundation up and running again.
Or not?

About Chris

Hello, I'm Chris! I'm Technical Operations Coordinator at Brave, and on the BAT Community Team. Many of you may know me from Reddit, and some of you may have even met me at a conference or meetup. At Brave, I mainly do web development, technical support, speaking engagements, and produce content. But let me tell you a bit about my origin story.
I was born to Vietnamese immigrants who escaped as refugees following the Vietnam War, and grew up in the United States and Canada. In school, I was the most difficult kind of pupil: a troublemaker with good grades. I always challenged my teachers, asking "Why, why, why?"
Asking "Why?" led me to philosophy, which I studied alongside computer science in university. It was the intersection of philosophy and computer science that led me to blockchain, Ethereum, and ultimately BAT & Brave. Very few people, I think, understand what makes blockchain truly unique. No component of blockchain is, by itself, new: we've had distributed databases, proof-of-work, game theory, and all the cryptography that goes into it for a long time. What makes blockchain unique is putting this all together to achieve decentralization. But the reasons people care about decentralization are deeply ethical in nature: questions concerning trust, power, and the role they play in the major institutions that affect our lives.
In addition to ethics, the intersection of philosophy and computer science is a field called "mathematical logic", which studies formal systems, abstract theories of computation, and the philosophical foundations of mathematics. Having studied as much, I understood what it meant when I first heard that "Ethereum was Turing-complete". And at that moment, I was all in. This led me to BAT, where I stand before you today.
My personal interests can be summed up as so: mixed martial arts & jiujitsu, k-pop, and philosophy! For the gamers out there, during high school, I became a highly ranked PVP player in World of Warcraft. When I'm not working or spending time with friends, I love reading and writing about analytic philosophy. My primary areas of interest are in metaethics (is morality objective or subjective?), epistemology (how do we justify our beliefs?), Kant's ethics, political philosophy, and mathematical logic.
I always try to understand every side of a debate, out of a love of learning, but also out of a deep sense of justice. I try to bring these values to bear when I moderate this subreddit each day, and I hope I have lived up to them.
Ask me anything, and it doesn't have to be about work! ;)

Creating the wikipedia page for Ethereum Classic

I believe that ethereum classic should have its own wikipedia page. All the other top 10 cryptos have their own wikipedia page. I do believe that with our own Wikipedia page it will increase interest and will appear to outsiders as more legitimate, besides ETC is starting to differentiate itself from ETH with different policies and goals.
Edit: I have created the page and would be great if you guys can help improve it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethereum_Classic
Thanks!

Ethereum (ETH) is an open-source, public, blockchain-based distributed computing platform featuring smart contract (scripting) functionality. It provides a decentralized Turing-complete virtual machine (Ethereum VM), the Ethereum Virtual Machine (VM), which can execute scripts using an international network of public nodes. Vitalik Buterin described Ethereum in the white paper in 2013, where he called the creation of decentralized applications as the main goal. Buterin chose the name while sitting on Wikipedia. He found the word “ether”, referring to a hypothetical invisible medium that permeates the universe and allows light to travel, and decided that this word is best suited for the name of its cryptocurrency. In a sense, ethereum is more superior and capable than bitcoin. This is because bitcoin was designed as a digital currency exclusively. Ethereum creates the possibility to run other services aside from digital currencies on the blockchain technology. All this is made possible by the software. Vitalik Buterin a Russian programmer and a college dropout from the University of Waterloo invented Ethereum in mid-2013.. Vitalik presented the Ethereum white paper in 2014 at the North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami, USA.. Ethereum is a new platform for writing autonomous smart contracts and decentralized apps which are self-executed when certain coded conditions are met. About Ethereum. Ethereum price today is $338.94 USD with a 24-hour trading volume of $11,750,476,133 USD. Ethereum is down 0.11% in the last 24 hours. The current CoinMarketCap ranking is #2, with a market cap of $38,273,746,189 USD.
