For anyone still interested, the free Memoriad downloads are now located here: http://www.memoriad.com/index.asp?s=sayfalar&p=yazilimlar&lang=EN
On a sidenote, I tried today to check the Memoriad wikipedia article, but apparently some moderators decided to delete the whole article and all its translations, for no logical reasons.
However, thankfully you cannot delete serious information once it’s uploaded in the internet; so here are some snapshots of the the Memoriad article which will indefinitely remain here and here: http://web.archive.org/web/20170212183601/https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memoriad (February 2017 snapshot)
I hope such a snapshot can be safely transferred here:
http://artofmemory.com/wiki/Memoriad because the Artofmemory wiki is obviously a more reliable source for mind sports, because it’s edited by folks who know much more about memory, than a random Wikipedia moderator.
It is obvious that some moderators of Wikipedia dislike mind sports. Therefore I will personally boycott editing anything in that site from now on, and I plan to abstain from supporting any further Wikipedia projects.
During my M.Sc. Thesis, we were not really allowed to mention any “Wikipedia links” as a serious scholar reference after the end of the project. Such ‘no Wikipedia reference’ policy applies in most universities.
I think, the Wikipedia project is going down the drain lately anyway, with so much vulgar stuff allowed in there. It’s probably going to follow the total downfall of Twitter in lost share revenues (mentioned in a Forbes article, last month).
I have the impression that Wikipedia and Twitter are nowadays mostly used for fun and not for serious communication or unbiased information. I mean, anyone can edit Wikipedia, even elementary school students. If they want such kind of expertise, then I’m done with it. Also check the various biases in wikipedia. Nowadays, I only check Wikipedia for some sports statistics. Even there, it’s neither extremely reliable nor totally accurate.
