Looks like @anj has been a busy little bee, data-mining @EThOSBL@twitter.com data, using @UKWebArchive@twitter.com tools, for the openVirus project set up by @email@example.com

Thanks to @NetPreserve, I’ve been spending time lately working on a set of web archive exploration notebooks for the #GLAMWorkbench. Here’s an example to create/compare screenshots of captures. #dhhacks https://mybinder.org/v2/gh/GLAM-Workbench/web-archives/master?urlpath=%2Fapps%2Fsave_screenshot.ipynb
The first of it's kind -- #IASGE Lab Notes
Genevieve starts us off with the first of a series, testing how web archiving tools can help with preserving source code + its scholarly ephemera
this first post looks at Archive-It and future posts will look at tools like Webrecorder & Memento Tracer

📢 CALLING ALL FOLKS WRITING, REMIXING, PRESERVING, & REUSING CODE IN ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS 📢
Team #IASGE would *love* to hear about how you use version control & code hosting platforms, no matter your level of use or confidence in your skills

@vickysteeves Unrelated: How many of the authors / books that are being lent are still in print and which authors are still able to collect royalties.
This whole thing with these authors guilds feels a might bit disingenuous.
I wrote up some notes about work that is being done to archive the COVID-19 web, and ways that sites like Pinboard and Redfit could help.
One thing that became clear in the middle of writing it is that while Jupyter notebooks are often thought of as datavis tools, they could also have a role to play in documenting how web archives are being assembled.
Hi all! This is a call to action for those who would like to help with their accessibility skills, or learn them while working on a not too complex web front-end. The quite popular Jitsi Meet web frontend has some accessibility issues which are preventing people with disabilities like me to participate in many meetings. These issues are low-hanging fruit. So if you would like to to do something good that really helps a lot of people and has big impact, here‘s the issue: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/issues/4541
FIRST #IASGE BLOG POST OF 2020

Is there a open source alternative to Twitch livestream hosting? Like can you connect OBS to self-hosted PeerTube or something? Does that get you live chat features?
I want to do some more emulation streams during this time of everyone doing WFH, but also am trying to divest from Amazon this year and also I have access to a Yale spinup service so I'm ready to go nuts

My harvest of OCRd text from @TroveAustralia digitised books, ephemera, and parliamentary papers has been updated! There’s now 19,795 text files (about 3gb) to explore! Harvesting details and links to browse/download files from Cloudstor are in the #GLAMWorkbench. #dhhacks https://glam-workbench.github.io/trove-books/
