    1. Since cool things are always changing, you can’t look for them, because the very fact they are cool means you have no idea what to look for. What you would be doing is thinking back on what was cool before and extrapolating, which is about as useful as presuming that because the Dow rose ten points yesterday it will rise another ten points today. Cool people, on the other hand, are a constant.

      How does this apply to social networks?

    2. The innovators do get their cool ideas from people other than their peers, but the fact is that they are the last people who can be convinced by a marketing campaign that a pair of suède shoes is cool. These are, after all, the people who spent hours sifting through thrift-store bins. And why did they do that? Because their definition of cool is doing something that nobody else is doing.

      The definition of cool is doing something that nobody else is doing.

    1. Instead of monetizing network membership, the software products that monetize most successfully have chosen another strategy: Make memberships free and monetize signal amplification instead.

      This is key.

    1. Building Stakebird, a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) for content curation.

      SIGN UP FOR THE MAILING LIST! Seriously get on the hype train.

      It will be worth it. Seriously. Do it.

      This should be a figure or a flowchart, bullet point list looks odd

    2. Bene

      it is unclear to me if this section is about the benefits of the system, or a description of how the system works. right now it is a bit of both. i would pull these two things apart a bit, for the sake of narrative.

    3. Grow

      now seems like the opportunity to describe the system, before moving on to discuss its benefits. it is difficult (impossible) to understand the benefits without the context of how the system works.

    4. k of a rigorous, structured, and systematic data collection and anal-ysis might penali

      Is there any prior work on this front? there has to be something. you should mention any related projects, cite them, and say why they don't solve the whole problem, relating to the points you mention above.

    5. 1 Introduction

      I would prefer to see a (brief) overview of what's presented in this paper, then a description of the problem.

    6. of scenarios that one might wish to halt in advance are the

      cut, replace "Examples include..."

      it looks 'wrong' to me to have a sentence as a single paragraph in altex

      So fun!

    1. With the exception of app, the properties for the options object are the names of Annotator plugins and their values are the options passed to the individual plugin constructors.

      We should list many of them here and show some examples. Some of the web developers integrating Hypothesis will be very lost unless they have copy/paste examples that they can refer to.

    2. By default, Hypothesis instantiates the Annotator.Host class defined in the injected code loaded by embed.js. It is possible to change this by assigning an alternate constructor to window.hypothesisRole.

      It would be great to see a more flushed out example of how this can be used to annotate iframes... there are a number of projects trying to do such things, and in general it would be great to see expanded examples of what can be done with customized embedding.

    1. The best thing about g-docs that have been published to the web is that they can then be annotated with Hypothes.is!

      We should really be using h with a lot more of our Google Docs. I think it is a good way to get public feedback over the things we design, write, and/or propose.

    1. To use math in your annotations, simply enclose supported LaTeX commands within enclosing \( .... \) for inline math, or $$ … $$ for display style math.

      You can use math inline like \(k_{n+1} = n^2 + k_n^2 - k_{n-1}\), or you can use display style math for larger equations:

      $$\begin{equation} x = a_0 + \cfrac{1}{a_1 + \cfrac{1}{a_2 + \cfrac{1}{a_3 + \cfrac{1}{a_4} } } } \end{equation}$$

      Math typesetting is provided by a combination of the new KaTeX library and MathJax.

    1. First and foremost, the preview builds have been renamed. They're no longer named Technical Previews; they're now Insider Previews.

      Works for me.

    1. As reported at Eurogamer, designer Barney Cumming took to the game's development blog on Thursday to post a brief yet tantalizing GIF of his latest in-game creation, and it appeared to portray Newell as a playable "boss" in the game. Crawl, which is currently available on Steam's Early Access service, works by having four players battle with each other to take command of the game's "hero" role—meaning everyone who's not the human must invade the bodies of evil creatures to make the hero's life miserable.

      Annotation test... will soon be deleted.

    1. Former web annotation systems

      There are many former web annotation systems and quite a few more discontinued ones we could mention. This spreadsheet contains many not mentioned here.

    2. Comparison of web annotation systems

      This list needs to be updated. Additionally are there any categories that might be added (subtracted)?

    3. Contents

      There should be a section on the current web standards effort. What other sections might we include?

    4. Web annotation can be used for the following purposes: to rate a Web resource, such as by its usefulness, user-friendliness, suitability for viewing by minors. to improve or adapt its contents by adding/removing material, something like a wiki. as a collaborative tool, e.g. to discuss the contents of a certain resource. as a medium of artistic or social criticism, by allowing Web users to reinterpret, enrich or protest against institution or ideas that appear on the Web. to quantify transient relationships between information fragments.

      This list can perhaps be a bit better and perhaps reference examples? Also, could the list and introduction be expanded?

    5. For Web-based text annotation systems, see Text annotation.

      What is the difference between web annotation and web-based text annotation systems?

    1. Climate Feedback is a browser application

      Climate feedback is not a browser application, Hypothes.is is a browser application.

      Climate feedback is doing the work of organizing scientists to use the application in a particular way: providing critical feedback about the way science is portrayed in a given article.

    1. Editing, deleting, and replying to annotations were very intuitive, he started using these features before even being instructed to. However, on the share dialog, he didn’t like how he had to select the text himself. He wanted a quick way to copy the link. He also wanted confirmation that the link had been copied. He expected the button next to the link in the share box to copy the text. Additionally, he expected to be able to easily close the “share thing” by clicking elsewhere on the annotation. Currently, to close the share box you need to click on the share magicbutton again. He liked being able to see the link, since it explained to him that there was a URL associated with the comment which was “useful information,” and something he ‘wouldn’t have understood right away.’

      Hopefully, this has been addressed by #1710.

    1. Four players (three of which can be human- or CPU-controlled) are plunked down on a game board and randomly assigned a couple of characters to fight with. Each turn, you roll the virtual dice and move around the board the specified number of spaces, collecting more characters, power-ups, trophies, and items.
    1. In that same speech, he argued that an international body of climate change scientists “resembled a Soviet-style trial, in which the facts are predetermined, and ideological purity trumps technical and scientific rigor.”

      Senator James Inhofe couldn't have chosen better words to describe himself and his cohorts.
