Four short links: 6 February 2019
Video Editing, Assembling Textbooks, Amazon Advertising, and Blocking Autoplay
- Flowblade — a multitrack non-linear video editor released under GPL3 license.
- Automatically Assembling Textbooks from Wikipedia — Adamti and co have a plan for determining the utility of their approach. They plan to produce a range of Wikibooks on subjects not yet covered by human-generated books. They will then monitor the page views and edits to these books to see how popular they become and how heavily they are edited, compared with human-generated books.
- Amazon Knows What You Buy. And It’s Building a Big Ad Business From It (NYT) — I’m sure nothing bad can happen from this.
- Firefox 66 to Block Automatically Playing Audible Video and Audio (Mozilla) — user-friendly behavior ftw.
