Journal of Internet Law: When Online Political Trickery and Gamesmanship Morph into Standard Practice: Victim Blaming, Do-It-Yourself Cybersecurity, and Wild West Retribution
Whether or not individual political campaigns are somehow culpable in allowing online attacks to occur (for example, by not engaging in “proper” cyber hygiene and security hardening, with practices in synch with what high-tech leaders promote), allow-ing political trickery to proceed without some checks may serve to weaken confidence in democratic pro-cesses over time. The overall impacts of the practices described in this paper on citizenship activities are complex, and damages as well as some benefits are likely. On the positive side, social media have served to democratize political trickery and gaming to some extent, providing capabilities for some kinds of politi-cal stunts and manipulations to those with fairly few financial and personnel resources. Bell and Ippolito (2011) relate some of the “equalizing tendencies” of networks, which can empower new and emerg-ing actors in political and social contexts. Political trickery, however, can also demoralize and drain the resources of some less-well-funded and less-politically savvy candidates. The need for conscientious reputa-tion management on the part of candidates can place considerable burdens on campaigns, possibly detract-ing from the overall value of these online political communications to democracy. Responses to these trickery practices may also underpin the attitudes of citizens as well as traditional media outlets to politi-cally-related international security breaches, possibly desensitizing and numbing them as to potential dys-functions with political communications as a whole.

PSL Studio Kill: Xylo
Good description of a methodology to investigate the viability of a product.

At PSL, we kill nine out of ten ideas that we test. We haven't talked much about these publicly before, but we wanted to share what it looks like when we make a "kill" decision. Our goal in publishing this is to help other founders think about how to do early validation the way that we do inside the studio.

Predicting Potential Electronic Serials Use: The Serials Librarian: Vol 0, No 0
When assessing electronic serials, librarians often review usage reports for subscribed serials but know relatively little about the potential use of unsubscribed titles. This paper discusses methods for predicting future use, including examining use of similar materials, citation metrics, interlibrary loan requests, denial/turnaway reports, and failed link resolver requests. Each indicator can tell librarians something different about how users are discovering and attempting to acce...

In the academic year 2017–18 The Open University Library was asked to examine its collection and content acquisition policies as part of an institution-wide review of services to students and staff. For the part of the project looking at best value of the Library content service, we wanted to review the ‘higher-cost’ content held by the Library, which was in the main the larger journal packages.
