Hoaxy® – Visualize the Spread of Claims and Fact Checking
http://hoaxy.iuni.iu.edu/

Hoaxy® visualizes the spread of claims and related fact checking online. A claim may be a fake news article, hoax, rumor, conspiracy theory, satire, or even an accurate report. Anyone can use Hoaxy® to explore how claims spread across social media. You can select any matching fact-checking articles to observe how those spread as well. They track the social sharing of links to stories published by two types of websites: (1) Independent fact-checking organizations, such as snopes.com, politifact.com, and factcheck.org, that routinely fact check unverified claims. (2) Sources that often publish inaccurate, unverified, or satirical claims according to lists compiled and published by reputable news and fact-checking organizations.

PeerJ – Award Winning Biological, Medical, and Environmental Sciences Journal
https://peerj.com/

To solve our greatest challenges we need a 21st century update to scholarly communication. Their mission is to efficiently publish the world’s knowledge. They do this through Internet-scale innovation and Open Access licensing to save your time, your money, and to maximize recognition of your contributions. They aim to drive the costs of publishing down for the academic community, while improving the overall publishing experience, and providing authors with a publication venue suitable for the 21st Century. They have two peer-reviewed publications: “PeerJ” serving the Biological, Medical and Environmental sciences and “PeerJ Computer Science.” Additionally we publish “PeerJ Preprints”, which is an innovative ‘preprint server’ covering Biology, Medical, Environmental and Computer Science. Authors can pay either a low-cost per article publication fee (i.e. APC) or for a lifetime publishing membership, which gives them the ability to publish their articles with them for free. The Q&A + annotations platform provides a second route to recognizing contributions for knowledge-share. This will be added to Healthcare Resources Subject Tracer™.

Gitter – Real-Time Chat System

Gitter – Real-Time Chat System
https://gitter.im/

Gitter is a real-time chat system similar to Slack or IRC, but with an emphasis on ease of use for open-source communities, especially those using GitHub. For example, Gitter provides a “badge” that can be placed in a GitHub project’s README file that allows users to join a Gitter chat with a single click. Rather than creating a dedicated Gitter account, users can sign in using either their Github or their Twitter credentials. Messages can be formatted using GitHub-flavored Markdown and can contain inline media files. Message archives are both browseable and searchable by month. In addition to Github integration, Gitter also integrates with Trello, Jenkins, Travis CI, Drone, Heroku, and Bitbucket. Public Gitter chats are provided with unlimited message history and can use all available integrations. Source code for Gitter is available under the MIT license on gitlab.org and the service can be self-hosted if users wish to do so. In addition to the web client, which works in any modern browser, device-specific Gitter clients are available for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS.

Wehe – ISP Traffic Speed Check

May 29, 2018

Wehe – ISP Traffic Speed Check
https://dd.meddle.mobi/

Wehe is a tool to determine if your ISP is deliberately slowing down some kinds of traffic. It works by sending pre-recorded chunks of traffic to Wehe’s servers. For example, one can send a recording of traffic when playing a YouTube video. Wehe then sends the same amount of random data to the same server. Lastly, it compares the transfer speeds of the pre-recorded traffic and the random traffic to see if your ISP slowed the recorded traffic down. Wehe comes with pre-recorded data from Amazon Video, NBC Sports, Netflix, Skype, Spotify, Vimeo, and YouTube. Future versions will allow users to record their own custom test data to sites of their choice. The stats section of Wehe’s website gives anonymous summary information, showing which networks slow or block traffic to the popular sites they test. Source code for Wehe is also available on GitHub under the Community Research and Academic Programming License. Academic papers based on data collected by Wehe are listed in the “Technical details” and “Case Studies” sections of their site. Wehe is available for Android and iOS devices.
