Reading List Week 6 20207th February 2020
I haven’t done a weekly reading list on this blog since high school; this week I did for a mysterious unknown reason. Alternative title: Links with random mumblings.
GLAM and Museum Tech
- Building Wellcome Collection’s new archival storage service – Two too common issues: filenames consisting of identifiers that are forgotten sice long ago and file verification. Current efforts will save future developers and archivists at Wellcome one headache or two.
- Someone used neural networks to upscale a famous 1896 video to 4k quality – I have had the pleasure to work a bit with colorization and upscaling at work. It raises interesting questions about authenticity.
- Engaging Absence – Do not only consider the data that you do not have but also present and represent it?
- Digitale handlingsmønstre i kunst- og museumssektoren – How Norwegian museum audiences use and interact with museums digital offerings. The first part I think is quite errorsome because of selection bias not taken into acount the rest is interesting but contains nothing revolutionary.
- Why You Should Choose HTML5 <article> Over <section> – Even if the title doesn’t teach you something new, the article will still show an actual useful use of the <section> element.
- HTML attributes to improve your users’ two factor authentication experience https://www.twilio.com/blog/html-attributes-two-factor-authentication-autocomplete – As often with web accessibility/usability things, what’s details to developers aren’t necessarily details for your users.
- Making Memes Accessible – Intresting problem; I’m however sligthly sceptical against the implementation. Partial image hashing could be a better solution to matching images maybe?
- Old CSS, new CSS – Long write up about CSS and its past and current hacks.
- The Best Little Museum You Never Visited in Paris – The Museum of Arts and Crafts in Paris does now have an entry in my notebook.
- Semikolon: nio exempel! – I have tough feelings about semicolons; it’s potentially useless.
