    The time has come and our loyal reader know already our traditional Advents Calendar. For the people who don't know, every year we had in December each day, until the 24th (Christmas Eve in Germany), a post with specials, tips, tricks, plugins, tutorials and so on.

    Since it is quite a lot work to accomplish 24 high quality posts, we asked some of the finest WordPress Experts in Germany if they would like to contribute some ideas and great posts to it every day.

Possible U.N. telecommunications treaty? - 0 views

  •  
    (A little outdated, 2012) This is an interesting article about possible international telecommunication regulations; and how countries have been preparing for The World Conference on International Telecommunications for months "behind closed doors". Although the idea seems easy enough, I do not believe that all the involved nations could reach a single standard when it comes to rights of speech and censorship. Even more so, if a treaty was made how would this effect the laws and citizens of the individual countries who already have laws in place?

Mega CEO: Forget anonymous e-mail. Think privacy (Q&A) - 0 views

  •  
    Mega.com's Vikram Kumar explains why he's building private but not anonymous e-mail, why you won't see Google investing in end-to-end encryption, and lessons learned from the summer of Snowden. Im doing my project with a similar subject so I thought this would be a good article to share in regards to privacy online.

    Open access ( OA) is the practice of providing unrestricted access via the Internet to peer-reviewed scholarly research. It is most commonly applied to scholarly journal articles, but it is also increasingly being provided to theses, book chapters, and scholarly monographs.

History of wikis - 0 views

    I found this to be really helpful if anyone is interested in the history of wikis. Wikipedia is one of the most popular wiki websites, but not the first.

    Another useful link, Paola! Thanks.

    The fundamental principles by which Wikipedia operates can be summarized in five " pillars"

    I attended one of the Open Access Week events in which a contributor from Wikipedia came and spoke about Wikipedia. I found the presentation to be really interesting. He spoke about the five pillars of Wikipedia (which we've already learned about) among other things.

History of Google - 0 views

  •  
    Since we were talking about the history of Google earlier today, I found this and I thought I'd share with you all. It gives a great detailed timeline (provided by Google themselves) on their history.
  •  
    That is a good link, Paola, thanks.

Wikipedia:List of free online resources - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

  •  
    This Wikipedia page shows all the available online resources open to the public.
  •  
    Interesting, Taylor. Notice that that page is part of a project called "The Resource Exchange" and/or "The Wikipedia Library." I was just talking to a frequent Wikipedia editor named Jake Orlowitz the other day who's volunteering with the Wikipedia Library; we're going to try to bring him to campus to give a talk. If we do, I'll let y'all know. Thanks for the link!

Comparison of XML editors - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

  •  
    Wikipedia's page on the different XML editors that are available.
  •  
    Probably no one in the class will ever need to use an XML editor -- and in any case, really you can just use a plain text editor -- but thanks for finding it! Everyone I know who creates XML uses oXygen.
