About Nate Hoffelder (11586 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. The Quartz article is extolling the virtues of the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. I have encountered this ‘encyclopedia’ before. It contain an appallingly awful article on ‘Religion and Science’ from Christian apologist and creationism-sympathiser Alvin Plantinga, who has no background in Science or Philosophy of Science, and sings the praises of the pseudosciuence of discredited Intelligent Design Advocate Michael Behe. SEP have long been aware of the shortcomings of this article, and are promising to an update to it, but this update has been stuck in the editorial mud for years now.

    Whilst Wikipedia has its faults (and I no longer edit there because of this), it does however have strong policies against conflict of interest, unverifiable claims and presenting fringe views as respectable. It also tends to be speedy about correcting flaws in high profile articles. SEP doesn’t measure up.
