Between the 11th and 17th of May, a lot of new patches got pushed compared to the previous weeks. (Did people adjust to the new normal?)

  • The 🥎 Weekly Golden Ball goes to... Mux' "Russia With Love: How ClickHouse Saved our Data" for being a good tech read.
  • Bitmovin's "2020 Video Technology Trends Revisited" sketches a good image of Today's video consumption, even though it doesn't have the technical 'hook' we yearn for.
  • Zattoo was added to our index! (Let us know if you think we should track a new source.)
