Internet Health Report 2018
https://internethealthreport.org/2018

The Internet Health Report is about the human experience of the Internet. It is an independent, open source compilation of data, research and stories that show how the Internet is evolving across five issues. You may know other Internet reports that look more squarely at industry trends and new technologies. This is not our goal. Working with researchers, digital rights activists, Mozilla fellows and our community, threy tell a collaborative story of how the Internet is – and isn’t – healthy from a human perspective. The Report draws on a wide body of existing research on issues ranging from privacy to connectivity, to online harassment and the economics of online platforms. Their aim is to connect the dots and look for patterns between these often siloed issues – to look at the human experience of the Internet as a whole. By doing this, they want to encourage a broader understanding of how the problems facing the global Internet relate to one another, and to shine a light on what people are doing to make the ecosystem healthier.

SelectHub – Confidence in Software
https://selecthub.com/

SelectHub is a new service for enterprise software product evaluation, vendor sourcing, and IT procurement. It provides a treamlined solution for company stakeholders to collaborate amongst themselves and interact with vendors across all the key stages of product evaluation: 1) Requirements analysis and preliminary product research; 2) Vendor communications (Messages, RFx); 3) Functional or technical validation (Proof-of-Concept use cases and deliverables management); 4) Financial due diligence; and 5) Contract negotiation. By providing comprehensive functionality within an easy-to-use platform, SelectHub helps companies minimize the communication challenges described above if not eliminating them altogether. In other words, SelectHub enables the adoption of a standardized evaluation process that will increase the value of software investments. SelectHub can best be visualized as a project coordination and management tool. But instead of dealing with task lists and Gantt charts, it delivers a collaborative environment where stakeholders within IT (Engineering, Architecture, and Operations), Procurement, Finance, PMO, and end-user business units can work together to evaluate, select, and purchase the right software products. You can seamlessly define and combine requirements, add products, research solutions, message vendors, issue RFIs, compare and rate vendor responses, and manage Proof-of-Concept use cases, lab logistics, and other deliverables. And in the end, using SelectHub, you will have the best product for your requirements that has the highest chance of being successful in your environment.
