Waking Up With Bwog: ENDSOP

Today is the final day of NSOP proper. Congratulations first-years on making it through your first week of Columbia! The coming weeks will be a lot more filled up with work and activities, but for what it’s worth, they’ll probably have a bit less drama. There are still some activities planned, but feel free to […]

Go Join WikiCU

In a mood inspired by times past, Bwog has been meditating over institutional memory a lot recently. Though our community benefits from the healthy, competitive presence of at least two robust publications, many of the finer points of our contemporary experience are annually lost come May. Bwog humbly suggests that you help to remedy the […]

WikiCU Changes Hands

WikiCU announced today that there will be a change at captain’s chair, with Sam Aarons, SEAS ’14 and one of Bwog’s webmasters, taking control of WikiCU’s operations and Bwog taking a longer term advisory role. We’d link to WikiCU, but it’s still plagued by malware. Get on that, Sam. Statement from the outgoing WikiCU team […]

WikiCU has Cooties

And by cooties, we mean it’s been hacked and infected by malware. Bwog is staffed by hopelessly computer-illiterate History majors, so we turned to one of our backend tech gurus to explain why you should stay the fuck away from WikiCU until told otherwise.

Check out the May issue, also […]

Know Your Wikipedia

’14ers out there may have realized that Bwog can be a valuable source of information about Columbia. However, even seasoned Columbians may not know some of this carefully checked, entirely reliable trivial knowledge. Great for parents weekend, when you want to steer away from the topic of grades and significant others. Columbia has its own […]

News from the Wiki world

In the realm of the internets, it seems that WikiCU has come to a crossroads —  with the site’s owner graduating in May and most of its editors being Columbia alumni, the future of WikiCU will depend on  either a “marketing strategy” of some some sort, or on someone else taking the reigns. While Columbia […]

Project Athena…Unveiled? PLUS: Jester-CUSJ Throwdown

Remember Project Athena, the promised Columbia wiki that was supposed to revolutionize campus life? Right, “barely” was our response, too. That is, until a mysterious i-banker IMed Bwog with the tantalizing info: Project Athena was online, and hosted off campus. We were quickly directed to wikicu.com, the slightly less sonorous realization of the project. While most of the […]
