Wik

L'autre jour, je faisais des recherches sur Jean-François Klobb, cet officier français du début du siècle, basé à Tombouctou, qui avait été envoyé pour rattraper la mission Voulet-Chamoine qui semait horreur et désolation dans sa folle avancée à travers le Sahel. 2 000 kms de course-poursuite et d'horreur civilisatrice pour une version française et nigérienne de Heart of Darkness. Quand Klobb finit pas rejoindre les deux fous sanguinaires pour les destituer, il se fait abattre comme un chien.
Bref, au cours de ces recherches, je tombe sur un personnage assez intrigant, la reine Sarraounia, une chef de guerre Haoussa qui tint tête à l'armée française. Malheureusement, je n'obtiens que des informations partielles, lacunaires, je n'arrive même pas à savoir si le royaume de Sarraounia se situe dans l'actuel Niger ou dans l'actuel Burkina Faso. Qu'à cela ne tienne, wikipédia est mon ami. Et effectivement, je trouve une petite notice sur Sarraounia, mais en anglais. Tiens, me dis-je, c'est étonnant qu'une figure historique d'Afrique francophone, qui plus est en relation avec l'histoire de la colonisation française, n'ait pas droit à sa fiche wiki en français.
Aujourd'hui, je lisais un article du blog de Colette Braeckman sur Alexis Sinduhije, un journaliste burundais étonnant, et si j'en crois l'article de Braeckman, une future personnalité majeure de la région des Grands Lacs. Pour en savoir un peu plus, je fais une recherche wiki. Et je trouve. Un article en anglais.
Je sais bien qu'il ne s'agit que de deux exemples mineurs, mais tout de même. Que Wikipédia soit plus complet en langue anglaise, je le conçois, mais qu'il le soit au sujet de personnalités issues du monde francophone, ça ne laisse pas de m'étonner.

Attention, la Wikipédia anglophone est anglophone et pas américaine, c'est à dire qu'elle est mise à jour par les gens qui parlent anglais, y compris si ce n'est pas leur langue maternelle. Résultat, 2,7 millions d'articles en anglais, contre 7 millions en français... Ensuite, le principe de Wikipédia, c'est qu'on y trouve ce qu'on y met. Par exemple si ça se trouve à l'heure qu'il est un mauvais article a été écrit à l'adresse http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarraounia !

Appollo a dit…

Tu as dû fourcher dans tes chiffres, Jean-No, non ?
Tu ne t'es pas occupé de l'article sur Alexis Sinduhije, c'est quoi ce travail à moitié fait ?

Li-An a dit…

Ce n'est pas nouveau cette histoire Wiki. De nombreux artistes peu connus du début XX français sont bien mieux documentés sur Wikipedia english que sur la version française.

Hobopok a dit…

En même temps, si tu passais moins de temps à boire des Cucas, et un peu plus de temps à écrire ou traduire des articles pour Wiki en français, ça irait peut-être mieux.

Mais pour peser véritablement sur le contenu, je crois qu'il faut entrer vraiment dans l'organisation Wikipedia. Par exemple, j'ai essayé de réécrire la fiche sur DJ Mehdi de façon objective, ça n'a pas tenu longtemps.

Appollo a dit…

Tu veux dire qu'il n'y a pas de fiche wikipedia sur la cuca ?
Je m'en charge.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

[color=#99aadd]Howdy

With the continuing rise in popularity of tagged poker chips as a virtual currency in facebook texas holdem poker many thieves have engaged themselves, who try their best to trick unsuspecting players out of their hard earned yahoo poker chips.

[color=#99aadd]Follow these tips to keep your facebook poker chips safe:

Never give your password to a stranger: Trust is a delicate thing that takes a long time to build but only second to destroy. You may meet a sexy girl in poker room and you are friends with him/her. He/she will keep interacting with you days before playing her trick. So be carefull enough to protect your login credentials to yourself, else this may lead to disaster.

Be careful about what you download: Regular online gamers are looking for cheats or hacks for the games they play in order to give them an edge on their opponents. Poker is no different and there are plenty of sites on the internet touting facebook poker cheats and hacks for those brave enough to download and install them. But many of these so called facebook poker cheats have viruses or trojan programs. The moment you install any of these your computer is at the risk of attacks by the creator of the program. He can then have access to vital information that you access from your computer. Leaving your facebook poker account at risk of been hacked. If you never downloaded any of these programs then you’re probably safe, and if you have then you should run a spyware detection program. The best move will be for get your computer formatted to avoid any loop holes.

Phishing Links: This way of hacking has been thee for quite sometime now. Hackers send legitimate and official looking emails to your inbox. When you open them you are asked to click on the link and login in order to save your account or win free facebook poker chips, but in reality you are logging into a fake site that sends your information off to the scammer who made it. Before you find it out, its too late to react and they would have already broken into your account and emptied it of any facebook poker chips that you may have.

YouTube scams: If you do a search on youtube for facebook poker cheats, zynga poker hacks, or free facebook poker chips you’ll find hundreds of videos on the topic. More than 90% of them are made by idiots hoping to convince you to send them your account information. They range from slightly clever to completely moronic.

Image Photo Having Exe Embedded In it: This one is hard to catch. This is the latest fashion that is used by scammer, you will be asked to share family photo's. When you open their photo, that will innitiate an exe in the background which will steal all your information and send to the mastermind behin it. So be careful with whom you share photos.

Hope these tips help you saving your chips.
