  • Nieman Lab experimented with producing a few articles using an algorithm rather than a human. The result? “Creating readable prose, sensical prose, and believable prose are still pretty different things.” (Nieman Lab)
  • Adobe, Twitter and the New York Times are developing a tool that will make more permanent metadata about the creation and editing of digital content, in an effort they’re calling the Content Authenticity Initiative (Verge)
  • Have you ever needed to use DNS but didn’t know what it is? Web developer Chris Achard put together a handy DNS cheatsheet, in the form of a Twitter thread (Chris Achard)
