Decentraleyes

Decentraleyes
http://www.decentraleyes.org

Many modern websites make extensive use of javascript libraries for interactive content and increasingly for basic page-layout tasks. Rather than keeping a copy of these libraries on their own servers, many website creators will leverage one of the content delivery networks (Google APIs, Cloudflare’s CDNJS, MaxCDN, etc). As an unfortunate side-effect, CDN owners have the ability to track users across any websites that use their services. Decentraleyes is a browser extension that keeps copies of the most popular javascript libraries, rewriting requests to CDNs to use the local copies instead. In addition to increasing user privacy, this technique can also reduce network traffic and speed up loading of websites. Decentraleyes is free software, released under the Mozilla Public License with source code available on GitHub. Decentraleyes is available for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera.

Pandoc – Universal Document Converter

June 15, 2018

Pandoc – Universal Document Converter
http://www.pandoc.org

Pandoc bills itself as “a universal document converter.” It can read input files in nearly twenty markup formats (including Markdown, reStructuredText, textile, and HTML) and convert them to over forty other formats (including docx, odt, epub, tei, and many, many more). A diagram of the built-in conversions is shown on the bottom of Pandoc’s “about” page. These format conversions can be used to bring content to new devices. For example, a user could download the HTML of a web page and convert it to an ebook for offline reading. Pandoc can also be used for document production. For example, users can write presentation slides in Markdown using their favorite text editor, then use Pandoc to generate a PowerPoint presentation. The same Markdown file can also be used to generate a reveal.js version of the presentation that can be uploaded to a website. Pandoc understands the Citation Style Language (CSL) of citationstyles.org and can also generate bibliographies for academic work. Pandoc is a free software, released under the GNU General Public License with source code available on the “installing” page. The “installing” page also lists installers for Windows, macOS, Linux, and BSD operating systems. This will be added to Business Intelligence Resources Subject Tracer™.

Minerazzi – Your Search-and-Mine

Minerazzi – Your Search-and-Mine
http://www.minerazzi.com/

They define a miner as an on-topic search engine that allows users to search, index, mine, and recrawl web resources. Users can do these tasks straight from a search results page. This new search paradigm is aimed at turning searchers into data miners. Miners can be built from individual web pages (from-the-bottom-up) or a pre-existent directory (from-top-to-bottom), turning said directory into a data mining machine. Because each miner is a microindex loaded with data extraction tools, users can deploy these to enhance or build their own curated collections. What is a microindex? They define a microindex as a small collection of primary URLs about a given topic or knowledge domain. Recrawling these allows users to discover new, secondary URLs with fresh and somehow related content. The total number of primary and secondary URLs defines the reach of a microindex.

Cloud Computing Resource Center
http://www.deitel.com/ResourceCenters/Programming/CloudComputing/tabid/3057/Default.aspx

Rather than having all of the software and hardware that you need on your desktop, cloud computing allows you to use the resources available in the “cloud.” For example, you can buy additional storage using the Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), or additional processing capabilities with Amazon’s EC2 (Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud). Start your search here for Cloud Computing tools, downloads, tutorials, documentation, books, articles, blogs, videos and more. This will be added to Grid, Distributed and Cloud Computing Resources.

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™.
