Yo , what do you guys preserve?

Web content? Pre-web software? Or perhaps you only digitize physical items?

This past June I was able to attend to the Godot Sprint and User meeting in Barcelona. I met a lot of familiar faces, and was lucky to get to interview some of the people behind the engine

You can print from a PC, or you can just plug in a keyboard and type in labels.

I meet so many people who read twitter every day, but almost never tweet.

If I may beg your indulgence, please add your voice to the public dialogue!

Fashion advice from Ibn al-Tilmīdh, a twelfth-century Arab Christian doctor:

The intelligent person should choose a manner of dress such that neither the commoners envy him for it nor the élite look down on him for it.

Why archive TV news? This is one reason.
Internet Archive's TV Archive was used to prove an TV News caption (called chyron) was altered, and then tweeted by Elon Musk.
This is why we need publicly accessible archives! go @internetarchive@twitter.com ! go AFP!

I built this tool a year ago but I feel like Mastodon folks would like it

The "Weird Old Book Finder"

Type in a search query, and it'll find one randomly-chosen public-domain book that matches the query -- and present it for immediate reading: https://weird-old-book-finder.glitch.me

Why only one book? To prevent the paradox of choice! Just *start readin'*

Can't promise every book will be weird, but most are

Are you thinking of leaving ? This isn't the first time fans have decided to move platforms, nor will it be the last. The video essay "Life and Death of Fandom Platforms" details @cfiesler@twitter.com's research into why and how fans change platforms: bit.ly/3VOBRwT
