Cat-v.ORG

Cat-v.org hosts a series of sites dedicated to diverse subjects that share an idiosyncratic intellectual perspective, questioning orthodoxy and fomenting elitism and high standards in topics from software design to politics, passing by art and journalism and anything else interesting.

Other than total and complete world domination, the overriding goal is to encourage and stimulate critical and independent thinking.

About the server

Cat-v.org lives on a ramnode server, running the 9front fork of Plan 9 from Bell Labs.

Most cat-v.org sites run the werc web content management system.

What people say about cat-v.org

I’m beginning to wonder about wikipedia’s [own] notability. If it’s not mentioned on cat-v.org, it’s not worth knowing about. – Charlie Kester in dev@suckless.org

It’s single-handedly destroyed my productivity the past 2 evenings. – shatter in #suckless

<SmoothPorcupine> You know, if I knew nothing about computers before today,
                  and I was linked this site, I would probably learn everything I've
                  learned so far and more.
<SmoothPorcupine> Where has this site been all my life?
<SmoothPorcupine> Has it been hopscotching domain names in an attempt to stay hidden?
<SmoothPorcupine> Is there an ongoing bug whereby it is currently available to the public?
