Smartcar accuses $50M-funded rival Otonomo of API plagiarism

Ruthless copying is common in tech. Just ask Snapchat. However, it’s typically more conceptual than literal. But car API startup Smartcar claims that its competitor Otonomo copy-and-pasted Smartcar’s API documentation, allegedly plagiarizing it extensively to the point of including the original’s typos and randomly generated strings of code. It’s published a series of side-by-side screenshots detailing the supposed theft of its intellectual property. Smartcar CEO Sahas Katta says “We do hav...

News organizations have all but abandoned their archives

Sharon Ringel and Angela Woodall have published a comprehensive, in-depth look at the state of news archiving in the digital age, working under the auspices of the Tow Center at the Columbia Journalism Review; it's an excellent, well-researched report and paints an alarming picture of the erosion of the institutional memories of news organizations. Ringel and Woodall find that news organizations are cavalier, even negligent, about archiving their news, and contrast this with the heyday of n...

Tim Cook just changed his name to Tim Apple on Twitter

After President Donald Trump referred to Tim Cook as "Tim Apple" on Wednesday, the Apple CEO replaced his last name with the Apple logo on his Twitter profile. Trump's reference to Cook drew a strong reaction on the internet. President Donald Trump referred to Tim Cook as "Tim Apple" during a meeting with the American Workforce Policy Advisory Board on Wednesday, and the name seems to have caught on.

Mandombe.

Frequent commenter Y wrote me as follows: I happened to see the Wikipedia article on the Kimbanguist church of the DRC (formerly Zaïre), a messianic Christian movement. It’s quite interesting in itself, but what caught my attention is the Mandombe script, said by its inventor to have been revealed to him through Simon Kimbangu himself. The script’s appearance and logic are to me spectacularly strange, like nothing I have seen before except maybe some ciphers. A Unicode encoding is underway (the ...

Meet the man archiving the internet

Back in 1996 when the internet was primitive, a couple of San Francisco-based engineers were looking to solve the problem of saving websites from vanishing after they were altered or shut down. They founded the Internet Archive, a nonprofit digital library. The purpose of the Internet Archive was to… archive the internet. In 2001, this preserved World Wide Web collection was made available to the public via the Wayback Machine, whose simple mission was to bring “Universal Access to All Knowledge...

Looking for a Microsoft Signature Edition PC? Here’s What to Do Instead

Microsoft/Internet Archive Microsoft’s Signature Edition PCs were one of the Microsoft Store’s best offerings since Microsoft used a clean copy of Windows with no bloatware on these PCs. Microsoft no longer makes Signature Edition PCs, but you can turn any PC into one. Buying a PC Often Comes with More Than You Paid For Booting up a new store-bought PC usually starts with joy, followed quickly by disappointment. At first blush, Windows seems to be clean and whole, and then suddenly a tri...

Embedding Yourself in the Internet

A lot of people worry about information about themselves showing up on the internet. Pictures from the past their spouse might find. Accounts on shady sites that they no longer have access to and can’t delete. Things they posted when they were younger and less than wise. And there is a definite reason to worry. Once something shows up on the internet, then it’s pretty much there now, in many places. Oh, you can take it down from the original location. But then there is Google that will cache t...

Border Patrol union deletes 2012 anti-border wall web page that argued walls waste taxpayer money

A union that represents agents for the U.S. Border Patrol deleted a 2012 page from their website that said building walls or fences along the U.S./Mexico border to stop desperate migrants would be “wasting taxpayer money.” VICE's Motherboard reports that the deleted web page was originally posted in 2012. It carried an argument against walls like the one Trump's pushing today, and said border barriers don’t tackle migration's root causes, and may encourage more migrants to enter the U.S. thro...

When the Internet Archive Forgets

A reminder that Internet Archive's Wayback Machine, which many people assume keeps a permanent trail and origin of web-content, has little feasible choice but to comply with DMCA takedown notices. As a result of which, a portion of the archive of things people submit to the website continues to quietly fade away. Gizmodo: Over the last few years, there has been a change in how the Wayback Machine is viewed, one inspired by the general political mood. What had long been a useful tool when you cam...

When the Internet Archive Forgets

Now on the Internet Archive: Brett Kavanaugh's 1983 Georgetown Prep yearbook

The wonderful people of the Internet Archive have posted a scan of the 1983 edition of Cupola, the yearbook of Georgetown Prep, alma mater of a rageaholic blackout drunk widely favored by Republican Senators for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court of the United States Senate.

Internet Archive project helps restore millions of broken Wikipedia links

The web, it turns out, is a fragile place. Companies, governments, educational institutions, individuals and organizations put up and take down sites all the time. The problem is that the web has become a system of record, and when links don’t work because pages no longer exist, the record is incomplete. With the help of volunteers from Internet Archive, Wikipedia has been able to recover 9 million broken links and help solve that problem for at least one knowledge base. The Internet Archi...

The Old Cyburbia Post Cards are back up...sort of

Anyone who was here before 2009 may remember that I used to have a webpage on Geocities showing post cards of the hometowns or current locations of fellow Cyburbians. But when geocities disappeared, so did the pages. I just never bothered to remove it from my signature. However, just today, when I happened to click on my signature, it did give the old URL, which it never did over the past 9 years. (It just redirected you to another site and I was never able to get the actual old URLs to try a...

how to get your website removed from the wayback machine

During my recent attack by wingnut trolls, I learned something new: how to request that the Internet Archive remove your site from the Wayback Machine.* * * *Before I was nominated as an NDP candidate in the recent provincial election, of course my online presence had to be vetted. All potential candidates were asked to deactivate their personal profiles from social media, and in addition I was asked to delete a few random tweets from several years ago. None of this was a big deal to me. The onl...

Trump's baby-snatching border policy "cruel" and "immoral", writes Laura Bush

Unlike most of the GOP, former first lady Laura Bush is not afraid of Trump. His policy of taking children from their parents and putting them in detention centers, she writes, is "eerily reminiscent" of internment camps. "Our government should not be in the business of warehousing children." (Wayback Machine link) The term "baby-snatching" isn't hers, though. That's from today's opionion piece in the New York Times. This may well be one of the most callous policies the Trump administration ...

Trust Your Data: How to Efficiently Filter Spam, Bots, & Other Junk Traffic in Google Analytics

Posted by CarlosesalThere is no doubt that Google Analytics is one of the most important tools you could use to understand your users' behavior and measure the performance of your site. There's a reason it's used by millions across the world. But despite being such an essential part of the decision-making process for many businesses and blogs, I often find sites (of all sizes) that do little or no data filtering after installing the tracking code, which is a huge mistake. Think of a Google Analy...

The spyware can intercept phone calls, remotely turn on a device's microphone and camera, steal emails and social media messages, as well as track a target's GPS location. Previ...
