This year's sping/summer intern at Rhizome, Matthew Brucker, created Periphery, a frontend-library for expressing the boundaries of web archives. It can help marking up links or resources that are not in the collection, and explain users why that is the case. Read the blog post about it: blog.conifer.rhizome.org/2020/

Ancestry is being acquired by Blackstone for $4.7B, in case if you were wondering if there was money to be made in exploiting family history. Blackstone is also known for such great hits acquiring SESAC, the performing rights organization, and acquiring a 50% stake to the Haynesville Shale in Louisiana from Shell for $1.2B. Not to mention the many evictions in Blackstone-owned buildings in California. (matienzo.org/2020/218/ancestry)

BITBUCKET IS DELETING HG REPOSITORIES TOMORROW!!!

Steps to save your code:

1) clone locally and keep it somewhere findable/your personal archive
2) deposit a copy in Software Heritage with this form: archive.softwareheritage.org/s
3) deposit a copy in Zenodo (zenodo.org) or use the Open Science Framework's (osf.io) integration with Bitbucket to drag and drop the files into OSF storage (or GL or GH) for persistence

Can anyone recommend an open source framework for publishing a book online? (Not sure I'm phrasing this right -- something that takes a book-like structure but ends up as HTML).

I see mdbook/gitbook, but wondering if there are other options out there, or ways of thinking about what a book is when its hypertext/web-based?
