    1. A Proposed Convention for Embedding Metadata in HTML agreed upon a convention for identifying and grouping metadata schemes in HTML. This convention relies on the use of a prefix to indicate that the elements used are from Dublin Core or another metadata scheme. For increased readability the prefix "DC" should be written in upper case letters and element names should be capitalized. For example: META NAME="DC.Title" META NAME="DC.Creator"

    1. Praesent gravida ullamcorper

      Although the phrase is nonsense, it does have a long history. The phrase has been used for several centuries by typographers to show the most distinctive features of their fonts. It is used because the letters involved and the letter spacing in those combinations reveal, at their best, the weight, design, and other important features of the typeface.

    2. dolor sit amet

      This phrase has the appearance of an intelligent Latin idiom. Actually, it is nonsense.

    1. To direct the Director of the Office of Management and Budget to establish an interagency working group to study Federal efforts to collect data on sexual violence and to make recommendations on the harmonization of such efforts, and for other purposes.

    1. The rule of law, civil liberties, and civil rights—these are not our burdens. They are what make us better. And they are what have made us better for the past 100 years.

    1. With the pilot over, we’re working on an application program interface (API) that will enable hosting of PubMed comments on third-party sites.

      Did that ever happen?

    1. On EBT cards at the dawn of the modern surveillance state.

      That's the moment when I realized that a lot of the most innovative, cutting-edge technologies in the United States are first tested on poor and working-class people.

      Virginia Eubanks, on PBS, discussing Automating Inequality


    1. "They did have a device for dealing with the trenches. They bulldozed them."

      "How do people come to do that, or plan to do that? Fairly easily. Humans are capable of being heartless toward other humans to a degree we deny to ourselves."



    1. Ellsberg was motivated after hearing a draft resister named Randy Kehler, who was excited ‘to join his friends in prison’ by making the moral choice to protest against the war. In modern times,

    1. Updrafts even shook the bombers flying above the fires. The raiders could see the glow in the sky 150 miles away. This time the incendiaries burned out sixteen square miles of Tokyo, killing more than 83,000 people, injuring more than 40,000, and leaving up to one million homeless. No other single air raid in history had killed so many people. More than 267,000 buildings, as much as one-fourth of the city, burned down

    1. The Wisconsin experience demonstrates that a preoccupation with mostly phantom election fraud leads to real incidents of disenfranchisement, which undermine rather than enhance confidence in elections, particularly in minority communities.

    1. The county has four "historic wildfire corridors," including the Hanly Fire area, Sonoma Valley (scene of the Cavedale fires in 1925 and 1966), the Geysers (with fires in 1988, 1999 and 2004 that covered a total of 22,000 acres) and the Guerneville area (hit by major fires in 1923 and 1961, the latter burning 5,800 acres, 18 homes and $500,000 worth of timber. In Santa Rosa, about one-fourth of the city's residents live within four moderate, high and very high severity fire zones, mostly hilly, wooded areas all east of Highway 101. Two of the zones bracket Annadel State Park: One of them east of Summerfield Road, the other along Highway 12 including parts of Oakmont. The largest zone covers a broad swath of northeast Santa Rosa, including all of Fountaingrove and the Chanate Road, Hidden Valley and Brush Creek areas down to Highway 12.


    1. The public TfL data (or 'open data') released here is for open data users to use in their own software and services.

    1. udell.roninhouse.com no longer lives on the web. This annotation anchored initially to a locally-spoofed udell.roninhouse.com whose index.html was a copy of the oldest snapshot captured by Wayback, in December 1998.

      That's the setup for the scenario I want to test. Let's say an annotation had been made for udell.roninhouse.com back then, or sometime before the site went dark. Then I visit udell.roninhouse.com, which 404s. I want the annotation client to:

      • detect the 404
      • look up the dead url in wayback
      • retrieve a copy
      • anchor its annotations to the wayback ghost of the page

    2. Tom Halfhill's Unofficial BYTE FAQ for one account

      I guess we can declare it official now :-)

    1. "The New York Times is the heart and soul of American conventional wisdom."

      James Riser, with Christopher Lydon, http://radioopensource.org/an-inconsistent-truth, discussing the Times' suppression of Riser's scoop on the NSA's domestic spying in 2004, and its failure to properly investigate the weapons of mass destruction storyline used to justify the Iraq invasion.

    1. good news sources have significant processes and resources dedicated to promoting accuracy, and correcting error.

      This might be a good time for such organizations to document -- and publish -- their playbooks.

    1. In practice this means that we must completely abandon the familiar but vague style of reference where an author summarizes and cites a text, without specifically quoting from it.

      Yes! Perhaps, instead of abandoning anything, we can think of this as embracing a web standard that's tailor-made for this purpose.

    1. The proposed new EU data protection regime extends the scope of the EU data protection law to all foreign companies processing data of EU residents. It provides for a harmonization of the data protection regulations throughout the EU, thereby making it easier for US companies to comply with these regulations; however, this comes at the cost of a strict data protection compliance regime with severe penalties of up to 2 % of worldwide turnover.

      This appears to be the source for the quote. If you search the web for the quote, though, it seems most often to be attributed to Wikipedia itself.

    1. To make changes, a system administrator must 'thaw' the protected partition by disabling Deep Freeze, make any needed changes, and then 'freeze' it again by re-enabling Deep Freeze.

      If you wanted to preinstall a bookmarklet, you'd unfreeze, install the bookmarklet, freeze, and deploy?

    1. The nice part is that the audio can be annotated within the page on which it originally lived rather than on some alternate page on the web

      That would be ideal. Let's figure out how to make it so. The Hypothesis client currently ignores fragment ids, but perhaps can make an exception in this important case.

    2. I’m curious if the scheme may make putting all the smaller loose pieces together even easier, particularly for use within Hypothesis? and while keeping more of the original context in which the audio was found?

      Me too!

    3. To summarize the concept, on most audio and video files one can add a #t=XXX the the end of a URL where XXX is the number in seconds into the file where one wants to start. One can target stretches of audio similarly with the pattern #t=XXX,YYY where XXX is the start and YYY is the stop time for the fragment, again in seconds.

      Thanks for the reminder! I'd read about this a long time ago, wasn't sure it was as yet widely supported.

      My immediate response was to separate the permalink into a pair of permalinks, one for the editor and one for pure playback.


      What I'm seeing when I try the playback links on, say,



      • Chrome: All good
      • Edge: No interest in #t=start,stop
      • Firefox: Respects #t=start,stop but no sound (I've read about MP3 playback issues in FF)
      • Safari: Don't have a Mac nowadays

      Curious to know how that tallies with your observations.

    1. The future, at least the sustainable one, the one in which we will survive, isn’t going to be invented by people who are happily surrendering selective bits and pieces of environmentally unsound privilege. It’s going to be made by those who had all that taken away from

      Rebecca Solnit gets to the heart of the opportunity that Detroit presents.

    1. He believes it’s far more valuable to practice old-school journalism by sending a reporter to a county board meeting than to try to mine data from a government website.

      The gathering, sifting, and reformulation of what's said at that meeting, and what's written in supporting documents connected to that meeting, is a workflow that can be massively improved in ways that have nothing to do with data journalism.

      This shouldn't be an either/or scenario, either a "data-driven" reporter of the future or an "analog" luddite who processes the board meeting. These are complementary workflows, ideally supported by task-appropriate digital tools.

    2. it was simply too difficult “to take reporters off the assembly line.”


      Instead, enhance the UX of the assembly line.

    3. This includes a lack of technical understanding and ability and an unwillingness to break reporting habits that could create time and space to experiment.

      If the activation threshold for experiments is (or is perceived to be) too high, then let's find ways to lower it.

    1. Wikipedia's Verifiability policy requires inline citations for any material challenged or likely to be challenged, and for all quotations, anywhere in article space.

      For quotations, we can do better than pointing to containing documents. We can use annotations to point directly to quotes.

    1. When I listened to Unmasking Misogyny on Radio Open Source, a key takeaway for me was Danielle McGuire's version of the story of Rosa Parks. It provides a context for Parks' activism that I (perhaps many) had missed. I've ordered her book, At the Dark End of the Street, to learn more about the history. But McGuire's remarks on the podcast summarize the case in a compelling way. I wanted to share. Here's the clip.

    1. What builds reading ability? Motivation and context. Here John Willinsky talks passionately about how people facing medical problems are motivated to dive into the medical literature and build their own context for understanding it.

    3. Imagine in-stead, a service that would retrieve relevant fact checks, ifany. This service would not decide if the claims were trueor false. Rather, it would provide a short list of relevant factchecks available and let the user make an informed decision.

      Like the "Search Debunking Sites for this Selection" in DigiPo

    1. Another argument against using rel="canonical" for linking to DOIs (and friends) is that publishers are already using canonical to manage SEO within their own domain.

      This convention is part of the reason why rel="canonical" fails for cross-site syndication of annotations.

    1. Lines 41-42 --this sentence needs rewriting because at the moment it says that biotic heterogeneityis an important determinant of biotic heterogeneity!

      The referent here wants to be an annotated segment of interest, to which discussion (and workflow tags) can attach.

    1. Private foundations are a plutocratic exercise of power that’s unaccountable, nontransparent, donor-directed, and generously tax-subsidized. This seems like a very peculiar institutional and organizational form to champion in a democratic society.”

    1. In constrast, for "cite-as" it is preferred for the purpose of referencing.

      When this spec originally proposed rel="identifier" I wondered if it might be more approp;riate than rel="canonical" for our purposes.

      But I wasn't sure, because "preferred for the purpose of referencing" still strongly implies an access URI, not a URI-independent identifier.

    2. The meaning of "canonical" is commonly misunderstood on the basis of its brief definition as being "the preferred version of a resource." A more detailed reading of [RFC6596] clarifies that the intended meaning is preferred for the purpose of content indexing [canonical-blog].

      Yes! This is where we went wrong, in my view, using rel="canonical" as our primary mechanism for cross-site coalescence of annotations.

    1. "canonical" [RFC6596], used to identify content that is either duplicative or a superset of the content at the link context, for example a single page version of a magazine article, provided for indexing by search engines, of an article that is spread over several pages for human use.

      See https://www.mattcutts.com/blog/canonical-link-tag

    2. <link rel="identifier" href="http://persistence.example.org/738207472" />

      Or, perhaps:




    3. 4. The "identifier" Relation Type for Expressing a Preferred URI for the Purpose of Referencing

      Now /this/ sounds like just what the doctor ordered!

    4. Identifier: A Link Relation to Convey a Preferred URI for Referencing draft-vandesompel-identifier-00

      This is referenced from https://hyp.is/oyqijtx8EeeKIQcqViQjDA/www.w3.org/TR/wpub/

    1. we are proposing a new IANA link relation type, rel="identifier", that will support linking from the final URL in the redirection chain (AKA as the "locating URI") back to the persistent identifier that ideally one would use to start the resolution.

      Successor to rel="canonical" for our purposes?

    1. High Resolution Linking, so that a link can point to a specific sentence, paragraph or any other object within a document, not just to the document as a whole.

      Like this!

    1. A selection, position, or state specifier, as described in this document, may have its own unique identity in the form of an URL. This URL SHOULD be dereferencable and return the selection/position/state specifier definition itself.


    1. The Web Publication's address can also be used as value for an identifier link relation [link-relation].

      Marking this passage as a link target.

    2. A Web Publication's canonical identifier is a unique identifier that resolves to the preferred version of the Web Publication

      Ah, so there /is/ a preferred URL.

    3. The availability of this address does not preclude the creation and use of other identifiers and/or addresses to retrieve a representation of a Web Publication, whether in whole or in part.

      OK, cool.

    1. unadjusted data suggests that the 1930s were actually the warmest decade in the United States and that temperatures in Australia have only increased by 0.3 degrees over the past century, not the 1 degree usually claimed.
