This reading list is sponsored by Wix Engineering, who give me money to research stuff, and when I find interesting things, I put them here.
- Project Common Voice – Mozilla is building an open-source voice recognition system. Give 1 minute to help it learn, by speaking a line of text, or listening and confirming.

The name is for your boss, for your investor, for your marketeer. It’s a way for you to keep making things on the open web”, by Frances Berriman, co-creator of the name.
- Progressing the web – “I don’t want the web to equal native; I want the web to surpass it.” I agree with Mr Keith on this.
