Inventor of World Wide Web announces project to restore power and agency of individuals on the web

Tim Berners-Lee – via his company, inrupt: “I’ve always believed the web is for everyone. That’s why I and others fight fiercely to protect it. The changes we’ve managed to bring have created a better and more connected world. But for all the good we’ve achieved, the web has evolved into an engine of inequity and division; swayed by powerful forces who use it for their own agendas. Today, I believe we’ve reached a critical tipping point, and that powerful change for the better is possible – and necessary. This is why I have, over recent years, been working with a few people at MIT and elsewhere to develop Solid, an open-source project to restore the power and agency of individuals on the web. Solid changes the current model where users have to hand over personal data to digital giants in exchange for perceived value. As we’ve all discovered, this hasn’t been in our best interests.

Keeping your kid’s mind sharp might involve making sure they don’t spend all day on their smartphone or other screen devices, suggests yet more research published this week. Canadian researchers looked at the first bits of data from a 10-year-long U.S. project meant to study how children’s brains develop over time, called the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development study (or more cleverly, the ABCD study). As part of the project, funded by the National Institutes of Health, researchers across the U.S. interviewed children and their parents about their lifestyle habits. That included how much time they spent exercising, sleeping, and watching screens on an average day. The children also took questionnaires, provided spit samples, and completed puzzles that measured their cognitive functions. The current study looked at the results from 4,524 children from the ages of 8 to 11 who took part in the ABCD study from September 2016 to 2017. In Canada, as well as the…..

Bing Extends Support of AMP Project to Mobile Web with New Viewer and Carousel

At long last, the wait is over! Two years after Microsoft incorporated the AMP platform into its mobile app to make mobile searches faster, the Redmond-based company announced the launch of the Bing AMP viewer and Bing AMP cache. What does all this mean? It means that Microsoft’s support for Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) is now rolling out to searches that are made from their mobile site as well.. As mentioned above, Bing joined the AMP project back in 2016 and anticipated that this feature would be fully available by this summer. Our team at Justia learned about it firsthand at SMX Advanced in Seattle where Bing gave the big announcement this year. The wait was well worth it since now compatible AMP-enabled web pages will display the AMP symbol (a small lightning bolt) in the headlines section and news carousel of the Bing search results. Bing users will perceive a faster mobile experience as they come across web pages with improved loading times. The….. To continue reading this legal news please click Read full information...
