Comment I wrote a GM script to do something similar once (Score 1) 115

I wrote a hackish Greasemonkey script to do something similar last year that just did it on the fly. Also tried to get a simple measure of how much was spam just by searching for simple keywords in the edit records.

I'd like to revisit the idea some time, because I'm sure you can also capture more details about the nature of editing (ie, how often are different parts edited, what keywords get added and removed most frequently, how many people are involved or is it just a revert war between two stubborn editors...) within a useful visualisation.


Submission + - New Radiohead album's price: You choose

syphoon writes: British band Radiohead have announced the forthcoming release of their new album "In Rainbows" on October 10th. Unencumbered by a label contract, they have opted to sell it as both a download and a disc box. The interesting part? Not only will it be DRM-free, but the price of the download is completely up to the customer.

Submission + - Radiohead allows fans to decide on price 2

radicalskeptic writes: "Radiohead, a band known to be unhappy with other music download services, has decided to release their next album, "In Rainbows", in two formats: a £40 boxed set and a digital download. What's the catch? Customers who purchase the digital download are able to name their own price for the album. This is the first Radiohead release since their contract with EMI expired. As "The Majors" continue to lose relevance, can we expect more of this type of experimentation and flexibility from independent artists?"

Submission + - Microsoft readies patent battle with OSS

Fred Oliveira writes: "Forbes has an in-depth article about Microsoft's plan to go to war with open source software over what they argue are over 235 patent infringements. Clearly just another step in the big ladder of "we don't know what we're doing, so we sue out of cluelessness", but it looks like the gents in Redmond are serious this time."
