What to do with this new toy?

My friend, Brian Sage, who is the most badass web developer alive, just registered the domain http://proveitto.me.

Now he just needs ideas for what to do with it.  :)  Any ideas?

    I’m telling you, Proveitto looks like an Italian type of singing or cheese. I can’t be the only one who thinks this.

    • LeftSidePositive

      Which I’m sure would be delicious.

    • sisu

      it’s not just you… I first read it as proVEITto, like prosciutto. The .me ending didn’t register.

    Non-Euclidean geometry.

    I agree with Sarah, I couldn’t make it out until I went to the page. You should capitalize the ‘I’ and ‘T’ thusly…

    ProveItTo.Me

    readability is key. Other than that it’s an awesome idea, though! You should think about loading it up with a few default proofs, like Epicurius’ famous quote, logical proofs that god can’t be omni-benevolent AND omnipotent, etc.

    A site that demonstrates how claims are proved. Claims could run the gambit from science to history. This could be contrasted with claims that cannot be proved.

      As well as claims that have been actively disproved.

    I agree with Sarah and sisu; I was looking at it going, “What’s a proveitto?”

    Anyway, it sounds like a fun idea! It’s be fun to have a site with a wide variety of topics, to show that evidence applies to all areas of study.

      Although that may require a lot of work in terms of finding people from different fields to contribute.

    How about posting there the video of the debate with you and Matt Dillahunty that I’ve been eagerly awaiting? :P

      Hey, you and me both. :P

    Hmm. How about a site dedicated to testing claims of fact made by/to the general public: political statements, claims of “alternative” medicine, climate change science, religious claims, debunking of pseudo-history, conspiracy theories, “common sense wisdom”, claims made by misogynists (incl. forced-birthers), racists, and heterosexists that fly in the face of scientific knowledge–basically a sceptical site that focuses on relevant, important issues that affect people on a daily basis and the personal and political choices they make.

    Hey, thanks for the ideas, everyone! This is already getting a lot more interest than I expected.

    BTW: Signup form works again. Thanks for all previous signups, and sorry for anyone that ran into the 500 bug. All fixed again.

    A well presented list of fallacies with a “why they are fallacies” breakdown for the layman would be awesome. I have seen similar sites out there but I find that they are sometimes focused on the academic.

    It could be good to focus on what constitues flawed proof as well as what constitues good proof. I would love to have a resource for this, not just for myself, but something to refer my christian freinds and family to…
