Opsamling: Medier og teknologi i uge 51, 2016

❓ Hvad er det her?

Hver fredag laver jeg (Lars K Jensen fra Ekstra Bladets udviklingsafdeling) en opsamling indenfor medier, udvikling og teknologi. Her præsenterer jeg noget af det mest interessante, jeg er faldet over i ugens løb.

ℹ️ Lidt om denne uges opsamling

Årets sidste opsamling er her. På grund af ferie udkommer den onsdag i stedet for fredag. Derfor er der lidt mere med, men hvis du mangler noget at kigge på, kan du kaste dig over alle de andre opsamlinger 🎁.

Du kan også se de fem mest læste artikler 🎁  her hos os i 2016.

God fornøjelse 🙂

Tip: Du kan holde CTRL (CMD på Mac) nede, når du trykker på et link for at åbne det i et nyt faneblad. Hold SHIFT nede for at åbne i et nyt vindue. På telefon eller tablet, skal du holde din finger nede på linket og vælge nyt vindue/faneblad.

🎄 2017 bliver brugerens år

Denne historie får den øverste placering i 2016’s sidste opsamling, alene fordi det er en god pointe, og fordi den giver os alle et reelt og prisværdigt mål for 2017:

Five years of chasing clicks has made browsing the news one of the worst user experiences on the Internet. Depending on the size of the homepage takeover, it can be hard to tell if you’re looking at a slot machine or a news website. Prestigious publications have pushdown video ads playing between the paragraphs of stories. In local markets, the same type of ad doesn’t have a stop or pause button. Relentless Google Survey questions separate us from articles. It is difficult for users to login, reset their password, or become paying subscribers.

🎄 Om Politikens prisstigning

Det skabte, ikke uventet, lidt røre i mediebranchen, da Politiken fjernede sit billigste abonnent (til 79 kroner om måneden) og erstattede det med et til 299 kroner om måneden, hvor den digitale avis godt nok er inkluderet.

Aske Kammer fra IT-Universitetet har skrevet om prisændringen [Kommunikationsforum] og hvordan den passer til resten af mediebilledet

🎄 Mystik om Apples news-links

Dagene, hvor medierne ikke ville have ‘dybe links’ fra eksterne sites og services ser ud til at være overstået:

Trafikken på en nyhedsartikel kan blive boostet til astronomiske højder, hvis Apple News linker til den. Men Apple vil ikke fortælle, hvorfor de aldrig linker til historier fra JP/Politikens Hus. Apple News »er det store spøgelse lige nu for mange onlinemedier,« siger chefredaktør

🎄 The Boston Globe når læserne via Facebook-grupper

Da jeg tilbage i september skrev, at ‘Medierne bruger Facebook forkert’ [Journalisten], nævnte jeg, at medierne for eksempel kan prøve sig frem med Facebook-grupper.

Det ser ud til, at The Boston Globe faktik gør det [Digiday]:

The Globe started a private Facebook group December 2 for subscribers to discuss the news with each other and Globe staffers. A description of the group says it’s open and on the record but moderated, and that commercial messages, foul language or personal attacks won’t be approved.

🎄 Facebook har – igen – målt forkert

ComScore, a measurement firm that has partnered with the social media giant, said mobile traffic from iPhone users was being undercounted from Sept. 20 to Nov. 30, while traffic from Android devices and iPads wasn’t impacted. Facebook says the error was caused by a recent update of its software.

🎄 Status på falske nyheder i Europa

“With the elections coming in May, we are all bracing for the storm of lies,” said Kurt Novack, vp and creative director at Leo Burnett in France. “There is a lot of paranoia here as we lead up to the elections. We’re waiting for the bullshit storm like it happened in the U.K. and U.S. Everyone has their antennas up.”

🎄 The Economist spår om sociale medier i 2017

I expect 2017 to be no different. I suspect that some publications, particularly those dependent on ad revenue, will continue to compete for a tiny slice of readers’ attentions in a race to the bottom of commodity news, producing only what the data tells them will go viral.

🎄 Wearables er så dødt

The market for wearables has proven to be insanely volatile, claiming victims much faster than we saw with the companies that went kaput following the introduction of the iPhone.

🎄 Microsoft går længere ind i kunstig intelligens

Microsoft Ventures today announced two steps that point to how the tech giant’s VC arm wants to get involved in artificial intelligence in a big way. First, it’s now going to pursue investments through a special fund dedicated to AI startups that focus on “inclusive growth and positive impact on society.” Second, it is the first announced backer for Element AI, a new incubator out of Montreal co-founded by “the godfather of machine learning” Yoshua Bengio, which is dedicated to the space.

🎄 Podcasting målrettet børn (og unge)

When we address behavior changes, discovery issues, and user interfaces, organizations will invest their resources in creating programming for kids. Now is the time to take what we’ve learned from the podcast revolution and apply it to our littlest listeners. I believe the children are our future — teach them well and let them listen to podcasts.

🎄 Er ‘Employee Experience’ værd at arbejde med?

It isn’t news that employees don’t all want the same development opportunities, rewards, and schedules. They differ in their level of interest in communicating and participating and in the kind of compensation and rewards they value. Companies should be able to provide experiences designed to appeal to these different segments.

🎄 Også Microsoft giver Flash den kolde skulder

Microsofts Edge-browser vil blokere for alt Flash-indhold på sites som standard og i stedet bede brugeren om manuelt at acceptere, hvis et site kører flashelementer via et “click-to-run”-felt.

Det skriver Microsoft via sit blog-site.

Du kan altså aktivt selv bestemme, hvilke Flash-elementer der skal vises per side per besøg.

🎄 50 erfaringer efter 3 år som ‘UX design intern’

As a passionate and young beginner, I learned how to be open to different perspectives—and how I actually didn’t know anything at all.

This list is a culmination of the important lessons I picked up along the way. I hope this helps you in your own path as a designer, as I continue to tread mine. Enjoy!

🎄 Skalering af responsive animationer

Scaling our websites and applications so that they look great on every screen can be difficult. A big portion of that difficulty can be trying to get specific components, particularly ones that have pieces that have to stay a certain size (like animations), to look good regardless of the screen size. In this post, we’ll cover how to help keep our responsive animations sized the way we want them.

🎄 Farvel til Firebug

Der var engang, hvor Firebug var det bedste værktøj, man havde i browseren. Der var engang, hvor Firebug gjorde det, som de indbyggede udviklerværktøjer i Chrome og Firefox gør i dag.

Men det var dengang. På Firebugs hjemmeside står der nu:

The Firebug extension isn’t being developed or maintained any longer. We invite you to use the Firefox DevTools instead, which ship with Firebug.next

Firebug-logo. Tak for alt.

Tak for alt.

🎄 Sådan orkestrerer Netflix microservices

The Netflix Content Platform Engineering team runs a number of business processes which are driven by asynchronous orchestration of tasks executing on microservices.  Some of these are long running processes spanning several days. These processes play a critical role in getting titles ready for streaming to our viewers across the globe.

Træt af it-monolitten? Prøv en microservice [Version2]:

“Microservices kan lettest beskrives som uafhængige mini-applikationer typisk implementeret i skyen som en virtuel maskine eller en container. Hver service har et veldefineret API, så det fx kan kommunikerer med andre services.”

🎄 Introduktion til ChatOps

Først fik vi at vide, at DevOps er det nye. Så fik vi at vide, at det er irrelevant at kigge på DevOps, for ’serverless’ er det virkelig fede at kigge på. Og her er så en introduktion til ‘ChatOps’ [TechBeacon]:

Popular Group Chat tools like Slack and HipChat are now commonplace in organizations across every industry. Moving to a more efficient and extensible method of communicating not only opens the doors to highly collaborative companies, but it is often the first step in their DevOps journey. With ChatOps, you can bring teams together in ways email and instant messaging apps never could, it’s astonishing to see the evolution of communication.
