Research and Search News

Stephen Shankland writes for CNET, “An expanded Firefox search deal with Google helped push Mozilla’s annual revenue up 8 percent to $562 million for 2017—money that should come in handy as the nonprofit tries to salvage what's good about the internet.”

Michelle Silvestre writes for OpenAthens, “According to the [organization’s] new research growing numbers of students and researchers are working from home, on mobile devices or in off-site locations, which is causing a huge surge in the demand for remote access to library resources.”

Mary Jo Foley writes for ZDNet, “Microsoft is working on a project codenamed ‘Bali,’ which is designed to give users control of data collected about them. The project is a Microsoft Research incubation effort and seems to be in private testing at this stage.”

Casey Newton writes for The Verge, “Academic researchers, pro-democracy hackers, and tech employees have begun collaborating on initiatives designed to identify and combat misinformation wherever it appears online. And while the work remains in an embryonic stage, advocates say they are at least somewhat optimistic that the worst actors can be reined in—and that trust can be restored to a greater part of the internet.”
