Great news, @internetarchive is now the official Internet Archive Mastodon account. Accept no substitutes! We also have @brewsterkahle , the ever-fascinating founder of the place, and more coming soon. Hop on!

@adnan @skinnylatte @textfiles @textfiles I mean… it is Internet Archive’s own mastodon instance for employees of Internet Archive. And I doubt @textfiles would let any rando make an account impersonating Internet Archive in their own instance.

@textfiles @internetarchive can you please add a URL the way it needs to be, on your profile, such that it confirms you're really the internet archive? @brewsterkahle

@textfiles @brewsterkahle @internetarchive why is it to hard for y’all to verify that you in fact control those websites? Surely you speak html…

I feel like I missed a magic trick between these pictures.

@textfiles @internetarchive @brewsterkahle
If you want you could put a link verification back to archive.org for that account.

You put a link on the archive.org page and it shows in it's profile that it "owns" (whatever that means) the page/website.

Mastodon.archive.org! Yeaaah, that's how it's done! Now I wonder, will there be an archive of old mastodon posts on archive.mastodon.archive.org?

@textfiles @internetarchive Hell yeah!

Dear @brewsterkahle, you should bring Wendy here, too!

I tried to convince her back in Venice last April

@textfiles @internetarchive @brewsterkahle great, heroku deleted my database cos they stopped supporting some version of mongodb , so i only have my old work thanks to the archive

@textfiles @internetarchive @brewsterkahle Have you considered running a hometown instance? (It's a Mastodon fork that supports local posts and is maintained by @darius: https://github.com/hometown-fork/hometown ) I imagine being it a good choice for an organization as you can choose for a post to stay local and not federate, thus enabling org-internal-only exchange.

@acka47 @textfiles @internetarchive @brewsterkahle happy to get on a call with whoever is managing this at the archive too

@acka47 @internetarchive @brewsterkahle @darius Appreciated but we are not doing that at the moment. It is meant to be part of the fediverse and aimed out. We use Slack internally. And hello, Darius!

@internetarchive@mastodon.archive.org That’s very good to hear. We hope Open Library will also be there soon. @textfiles@digipres.club @brewsterkahle@mastodon.archive.org
