Singles now outnumber married people in America — and that's a good thing | PRI
In 1950, singles were just 22 percent of the adult population. Now, they've taken over. More than half of American adults are single, and that may have some surprising benefits — from the way people join civic groups and socialize to how they take part in the lives of their hometowns.

Software Development Practices: Getting Specific with Acceptance Criteria | OCLC Developer Network
If you’ve been following our product development practices series, you know how to think about identifying problems and articulating those problems as user stories. But even the best user story can’t encompass all of the details of the user experience that need to be considered in the development process. This week’s post explains the important role of acceptance criteria.

Software Development Practices: Telling Your User's Story | OCLC Developer Network
Last week was the first in a series of posts about product development practices. In that post, Shelley discussed how important it is to identify the problem that the user needs to solve. This post will describe how anyone can write and understand User Stories that articulate the problem. User Stories are informal, simple, short and concise statements about what the user wants to accomplish. They focus entirely on what the user wants to do and deliberately avoid talking about how the technical solution will work.

The system, which is incrementally replacing the Bureau’s Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System, will better serve the agency’s most prolific customers—law enforcement agencies checking criminal histories and fingerprints, veterans, government employees, and the organization’s own Laboratory, the FBI said.

A History of the Future in 100 Objects [2082's perspective on the next 68 years]
Why write a history of the 21st century? There are still 18 years until the end of the century, and it may seem foolhardy for a mere human to attempt to analyse the data at our disposal. After all, we're awash with information from every corner of the world, covering every second of the century. A thousand detailed histories of individuals and systems can be generated at the snap of a finger. And yet I believe that our century, as it draws to a close, demands not that we look at just the big picture but at the small details, on the scale at which human lives are lived...

Asserting Rights We Don’t Have [with special collections items]: Libraries and “Permission to Publish” | Peer to Peer Review, Library Journal
In late June, a minor brouhaha erupted when the library at the University of Arkansas suspended reporters from the Washington Free Beacon, an online newspaper, from using its special collections. The reason given by library administrators was that on multiple occasions the newspaper's reporters had published content from those collections without asking permission, as library policy requires. Much has been made in the right-wing press about the politics supposedly surrounding this conflict. I want to focus on a different issue: the practice of making patrons request library permission before republishing content drawn from documents in our special collections.
