There's something distinctly off about the Wikia for Doug. For starters, I doubt the veracity of these 'extended universe' books.
And, maybe I'm wrong, but I think the "theories" section on Mr. Dink is in desperate need of citation. The Hamburger Boy
article is, frankly, a mess of half-cooked conjecture, the This Doug Live page
is filled with spurious information... a whole page for Lardy the Fat Cell?
... don't even get me started on the editorializing in the Chalky Studebaker article
. The culprit appears to be Skeeter Valentines Day Massacre
, the rapscallion. Other users
have noticed this problem, and the effect it's having on the credibility of the Doug Wikia community. If you want to get your facts straight, you can check out some real info
over at the Doug (previously
) Wikipedia page.

Google is testing a Digg-like social interface to Google Search results, Techcrunch has an early preview video
. This is bad news for Jimy Wales's Wikia
since this is what they have been trying to build. Perhaps related it looks like Google is buying Digg

Interesting idea, but will it work?
"Grub provides a free for download, distributed crawling client, which is used to create an infrastructure (database + volunteers) that will eventually provide URL update status information for nearly every web page on the Internet. Grub's distributed crawler network will enable websites, content providers, and individuals to notify others that changes have occurred in their content, all in real time"
