Designing better file organization around tags, not hierarchies
Excerpts from introduction:
"Computer users organize their files into folders because that is the primary tool offered by operating systems. But applying this standard hierarchical model to my own files, I began to notice shortcomings of this paradigm over the years. At the same time, I used some other information systems not based on hierarchical path names, and they turned out to solve a number of problems. I propose a new way of organizing files based on tagging, and describe the features and consequences of this method in detail.

Speaking personally, I’m fed up with HFSes, on Windows, Linux, and online storage alike. I struggled with file organization for just over a decade before finally writing this article to describe problems and solutions. Life would be easier if I could tolerate the limitations of hierarchical organization, or at least if the new proposal can fit on top of existing HFSes. But fundamentally, there is a mismatch between the narrowness of hierarchies and the rich structure of human knowledge, and the proposed system will not presuppose the features of HFSes.
[...]
existing alternative systems like Git and Danbooru bypass HFS problems to deliver a better user experience. Then I describe a step-by-step model, starting from basic primitives, of a proposed file organization system that includes a number of desirable features by design.
[...]
I care most about the data model and less about implementation details. For example in HFSes, I focus on the fact that the file system consists of a tree of labeled edges with file content at the leaves; I ignore details about inodes, journaling, defragmentation, permissions, etc."https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=16763235

Metro - Data Crowdsourcing for AI and Machine Learning >>> Generate and sell your own data
About:
"Anybody can use our community-made plugins, "DataSources", to generate data and sell it in real-time to a Project. (free for now) A Project could be a groundbreaking new AI, a research study, or someone's curiosity project.
[...]
Artificial Intelligence is fueled by data, so innovation is monopolized by those who control data.
[...]
Our philosophy is "Empower, Don't Restrict". Let users control and monetize their data.
[...]
We want to create a transparent and fair system of sharing any kind of data where both the producer of data and the buyer of data have the power they deserve. Right now, the middle-man has all of the power and that is why the world is dominated by Google and Facebook. This is a fair and honest system which will be built without imposing unreasonable restrictions upon what can and cannot be done.
[...]
We are not a data collection company. We're a data energizing company.
[...]
We have created a Chrome/FF extension to which users can attach "DataSources" - simple community-made pieces of code which allow users to generate their own data. Our website hosts "Projects", which are pieces of work which want to crowdsource data from users using specific DataSources. DataSources are made and curated by the community, not by us, and they are open source so anybody can verify them. This gives the community direct access to raw data with its intrinsic innovative value for the coming AI revolution, while giving individual users direct access to the monetary value."

OpenResty
About:
"OpenResty® is a full-fledged web platform that integrates the standard Nginx core, LuaJIT, many carefully written Lua libraries, lots of high quality 3rd-party Nginx modules, and most of their external dependencies. It is designed to help developers easily build scalable web applications, web services, and dynamic web gateways.
[...]
OpenResty® effectively turns the nginx server into a powerful web app server, in which the web developers can use the Lua programming language to script various existing nginx C modules and Lua modules and construct extremely high-performance web applications that are capable to handle 10K ~ 1000K+ connections in a single box.

OpenResty® aims to run your server-side web app completely in the Nginx server, leveraging Nginx's event model to do non-blocking I/O not only with the HTTP clients, but also with remote backends like MySQL, PostgreSQL, Memcached, and Redis.

Real-world applications of OpenResty® range from dynamic web portals and web gateways, web application firewalls, web service platforms for mobile apps/advertising/distributed storage/data analytics, to full-fledged dynamic web applications and web sites. The hardware used to run OpenResty® also ranges from very big metals to embedded devices with very limited resources."

Polkadot - heterogeneous multi‑chain technology
About:
"The Polkadot protocol is intended to be a scalable heterogeneous multi-chain technology. Unlike previous blockchain implementations that have focused on providing a single chain of varying degrees of generality over potential applications, Polkadot itself will not provide any inherent application functionality at all. Rather, Polkadot will provide the bedrock relay-chain upon which a large number of validatable, globally-coherent dynamic data-structures may be hosted. We call these data-structures “parallelised” chains or parachains, though there is no specific need for them to be blockchain in nature.

In other words, Polkadot may be considered equivalent to a set of independent chains (e.g. the set containing Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Namecoin and Bitcoin) except for two very important points: pooled security and trust-free interchain transactability.

These points are why the Foundation considers Polkadot to be “scalable” in its design. In principle, a problem to be deployed on Polkadot may be substantially parallelised - scaled out - over a large number of parachains. Since all aspects of each parachain may be conducted in parallel by a different segment of the network, the system has some ability to scale.

Polkadot is intended to provide a bare-bones piece of infrastructure leaving much of the complexity to be addressed at the middleware level. This is a conscious decision intended to reduce development risk, enabling the requisite software to be developed within a short time span and with a good level of confidence over its security and robustness."

Key elements:
1 Relay chain > Coordinates consensus and transaction delivery between chains
2 Parachains > Constituent blockchains which gather and process transactions
3 Bridges > Link to blockchains with their own consensus such as Ethereum

OCRmyPDF
OCRmyPDF adds an OCR text layer to scanned PDF files, allowing them to be searched.

It makes use of PDF/A, an ISO-standardized PDF version specialized for use in the archiving and long-term preservation of electronic documents. PDF/A differs from PDF by prohibiting features unsuitable for long-term archiving, such as font linking (as opposed to font embedding) and encryption. The ISO requirements for PDF/A file viewers include color management guidelines, support for embedded fonts, and a user interface for reading embedded annotations.

Example use case:

Ocean Protocol — A Decentralized Data Exchange Protocol to Unlock Data for AI
About:
"Society is becoming increasingly reliant on data, especially with the advent of AI. However, a small handful of organizations with both massive data assets and AI capabilities have become powerful with control that is a danger to a free and open society.

Ocean Protocol aims to unlock data, for more equitable outcomes for users of data, using a thoughtful application of both technology and governance.
[...]
It is a decentralized protocol and network of artificial intelligence (AI) data/services. It incentivizes for a vast supply of relevant AI data/services. This network helps to power AI data/service marketplaces, as well as public commons data. The heart of Ocean’s network is a new construction: a Curated Proofs Market. CPMs bridge predicted relevance with actual relevance of each AI service, by having curation markets for cryptographic proofs (e.g. proof of data availability)."

Ocean Protocol is supported by Ocean Foundation, which is a Singapore-based
non-profit foundation. Ocean Foundation’s mandate is to:
(a)
development of the Ocean Protocol and activate a community of
stakeholders;
(b)
provide guidance for the development of the Ocean Protocol; and
(c)
support the growth, and governance of a vibrant data exchange network
and ecosystem based on the Ocean Protocol.

The Data That Turned the World Upside Down
Excerpt:
"Pretty much every message that Trump put out was data-driven
[...]
On the day of the third presidential debate between Trump and Clinton, Trump's team tested 175,000 different ad variations for his arguments, in order to find the right versions above all via Facebook. The messages differed for the most part only in microscopic details, in order to target the recipients in the optimal psychological way: different headings, colors, captions, with a photo or video. This fine-tuning reaches all the way down to the smallest groups
[...]
address villages or apartment blocks in a targeted way. Even individuals."
[...]
stating that traditional blanket advertising is dead."

26 Practical Demand Generation Strategies For Startups
Excerpt:
"The goal of demand generation is to build and nurture key prospect and customer relationships for the long term, and that requires your marketing and sales teams to be aligned.

For a startup or small business, this means your marketing team will identify and attract prospective customers or clients using content, community management, email campaigns, in-person events, and other inbound marketing strategies.

Meanwhile, your sales team will qualify those prospects with lead scoring systems, identify high-quality prospects, and then nurture them into your sales funnel. At some companies, marketers may also help qualify prospective customers in order to provide the sales team with higher-quality leads.
[...]
Inbound marketing is all about creating content and viewing yourself, company, etc. as a publisher of content, that when combined with other inbound marketing best practices, can generate quality inbound leads for your business, inside and outside sales teams."

Strategies separated into 5 categories:

6 Content Strategies
5 Social Media/Community Management Strategies
4 Email Strategies
5 Paid Advertising Strategies
3 Public Relations Strategies
3 Bonus Strategies
