Wikipedia Entry on AIAS


The acronym AIAS stands for Alpha Institute for Advanced Studies and it is registered as a not for profit organization in Boise, Idaho, U.S.A. Its Board Meetings are held quarterly and minutes recorded. Therefore it is a legal organization. In this case wikipedia claimed obscurely that AIAS is a “virtual organization”, a term apparently invented by wiki itself, and unknown elsewhere, and this invention was used as an excuse to remove the AIAS page. From the comparitive impact table on the home page of this site the truth is that AIAS is currently the organization making the most immediate impact in theoretical physics. So wikipedia has no credibility whatsoever, any more than street gossip has credibility.
