This Friday morning finds me at an SF con in Williamsburg, VA called RavenCon. Here are a few stories to read while I am away from my computer.
- I wouldn't say that anyone was shivved at the annual conference for editors, but that is only because "shiv" is not an accepted term in the Chicago Manual of Style or AP style guide.
- Allowing DRM on HTML has turned the previously open web into Google's wall garden.
- The Internet Archive has recovered the nearly half a million music tracks that Myspace "accidentally" "lost".
- Getty is being sued for fraudulently selling licenses for public domain images.
- Many news orgs are failing to preserve their digital content. Without that first draft of history, it's going to be harder for future historians to write an accurate history.
- Google Chrome might one day have AI-generated image descriptions.
- For the next couple months DC public library will be accepting recommendations of self-published books to be added to their collection.
