Four short links
  1. Flowbladea multitrack non-linear video editor released under GPL3 license.
  2. Automatically Assembling Textbooks from WikipediaAdamti 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Firefox 66 to Block Automatically Playing Audible Video and Audio (Mozilla) — user-friendly behavior ftw.
