What I want, and will probably never get round to implementing, is Markov chain playlist generation. Collect play order from (high-quality, human-generated) playlists, then use them to build Markov chains of tracks that tend to be played after one another.
people on the internet misunderstanding a paper? Might that be because 99% of them don't have access to read the thing, since it's suck behind a paywall?
and to end a post about a paper people can't read with "Maybe I’m being naive here, but I think a major reason behind false memes is that checking sources sounds much harder and more intimidating than it actually is." -- that's just rubbing it in!
I'm a big fan of the BBC World Service, which tends to have more content and less human interest compared to Radio 4. In particular 'Newshour' is the best general world news coverage I've found, and available as podcast http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/newshour
and there's Democracy Now -- it's unashamedly politically biased, but brings up important stories that don't get covered much elsewhere. The best part is the news roundup at the start -- the rest is features and interviews, which can be very good or entirely dull. http://www.democracynow.org/podcasting
For anybody who reads French, I recommend http://www.courrierinternational.com/. They select and translate articles from the world press on whatever are the most important issues. So you'll get Greek discussions of Syriza, Ukrainian and Russian comment on Donbass, etc.
I've not found anything as good in English, but presumably it's out there somewhere.
I am going to get a little off-topic here, another awesome website in french is http://linuxfr.org/. If you know of any other website of similar content & an quality in English, Spanish or Portuguese please let me know. There are some English websites I've checked before like Phoronix, Linux.com, Slashdot, etc., but I don't feel that they have as much high quality content as LinuxFr.
Please everyone who thinks Spiegel is a decent magazine. It's not. Any German with a bit of an education can only detest the journalistic "quality" of Der Spiegel. It's a propaganda outlet, on the same level as Deutsche Welle, Russia Today or even boulevard/tabloid noise like Bild and Express.
Turning them into generators would have broken a lot of existing code, though, so it's reasonable to leave them until a major version change.
Rather, these are the kind of small, obviously-useful changes that should have come immediately in 3.0, giving people some encouragement to switch.
