Awesome2.0cularitude

Alright!

For my final remix assignment, I am going to work off of this.

I am going to remake that page so that it’s perfect, and I’m also going to add a number of new pages:
– Awesome Economics
– Awesome Psychology
– Greatest Awesometacularitude Principle (John Stuart Mill)
– Awesometacularitude at Work
– The Paradox of Awesometacularitude
– The Awesome Treadmill
– maybe more

They will be based off of similar pages on Wikipedia, but will link selectively to either my fake pages or to the real ones. The goal is to make the overall feel of the website seamlessly integrated into Wikipedia. That is, you won’t be able to tell when you’re jumping to Wikipedia vs when you’re just moving to another joke page (except when you see the word “awesometacularitude” somewhere).

My method will be similar to the way I made the original Awesometacularitude page, but I will be much more methodical about it, and I should be able to achieve a pretty much perfect conversion from the original. All links will work, whether they link to real Wikipedia articles or doppelgangers. And I will be much more methodical about word choice, so all of the title names and things will be totally convincing.

I’m pretty excited about it.

In other news, Lost in Minecraft will not be updated this weekend.
The thrilling conclusion will have to wait another week!

I know it’s hard, but I think you’ll all survive.
