Insanely Stupid Quotes:

It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.

- Joseph Stalin

More Quotes from Communist Dictators

It is nobler to declare oneself wrong than to insist on being right-- especially when one is right.

- Friedrich Nietzsche

Welcome to Insanely Witty Stupidity

The primary goal of Insanely Witty Stupidity is to entertain users. It serves mainly as a "hobby" site for its maintainer (artist-hacker-philosopher Michael Atkins). On the site, you'll find books and short stories, artwork, free software (software that serves a user rather than controlling him/her), blog-style commentary about the website and other interesting things (Witty News), tools for browsing the web (see below), random thoughts about politics and science, and more.

What Does Insanely Witty Stupidity Have to Offer?

There are ongoing book series (Case's Cases and Hailey's Follies), short stories or "novella" (L.I.N. & Chuck), weird art projects, and more (see links above). They are not updated very often. But, they are alive and well. And, progress will continue as long as the ruling elite allows. Updates about Insanely Witty Stupidity series are discussed pretty regularly in the Witty News column. And, changes are documented in the website's changelog (see below).

What Is Free Software?

The true purpose of software is hacking, not office work. Hacking is not security breaking (despite an unsavory reputation it has been appointed by unknowledgeable journalists). It is 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".
