Welcome to Insanely Witty Stupidity

The goal of Insanely Witty Stupidity is entertainment. On the site, you'll find books and short stories, artwork, free software (software that serves a user rather than controlling them), blog-style commentary about the website and other interesting things (Witty News), tools for browsing the web, random thoughts about politics and science, and more.

How Entertaining *Is* Insanely Witty Stupidity?

Insanely entertaining! :D There are series of ongoing books (Case's Cases and Hailey's Follies), short stories or "novella" (L.I.N. & Chuck), and weird artwork. They are not updated very often. But, they are still alive and well. And, progress will continue as long as the ruling elite allows-- just very slowly. Updates about Insanely Witty Stupidity series are going to become more regular in the Witty News column.

Why Free Software?

Hacking is the true purpose of software, not making spreadsheets. For clarity, hacking is not a criminal act-- only creativity employed to make better use of everyday things (for a more detailed analysis, read Richard Stallman's article about hacking vs. cracking).

Free software may be something non-hackers have never heard of. Simply put, it provides some of the best tools a developer can produce for solving a problem (the goal of any software suite). By contrast, non-free software typically limits a user's problem solving to a simple set of tools that are not adequate for the job. For example, compare Microsoft's text editor "Notepad" to GNU's text editor "Emacs".
