The world of copyright, really.
Feed books to ChatGPT, no of 'em moves. But take book lending to a new level, so culture becomes available to the masses, and the publishing houses go berserk.
@internetarchive , I'm a bit short at the moment, but count on me to donate before the end of the year 👍
These three recordings from February 2020 at the Swedish American Hall are such a great run of of shows: Three nights solo. Lots of obscure stuff, one-offs, compilation releases, etc. He plays the #Jedi song for crissake! (it's canon.) Good, long banter too! If you want to hear what's beyond the albums, this is a really good bunch. #TheMountainGoats #LiveGoats #Bootlegs #InternetArchive #Music #LiveMusic
One thing I particularly enjoy about working on #InternetArchive Bot for #Wikipedia is learning about the different languages Wikipedia has editions in, and in turn, you learn about languages of the world.
There are so many languages! And Wikipedia exists in *hundreds* of languages! And those are only a fraction of the several *thousand* languages in existence!
I particularly appreciate that Wikipedia exists in literary languages like Old Church Slavonic.

The NYT has tried to block a web crawler affiliated with the famous Internet Archive, whose easy-to-use article version comparisons have sometimes been a source of embarrassment for the paper. It added “ia_archiver” — a bot that, in the past, captured huge numbers of websites for the Internet Archive — to a list that instructs certain crawlers to stay out of its website. https://theintercept.com/2023/09/17/new-york-times-website-internet-archive/

Some other people seem to have been archiving Nomad Complex too! It seems like someone got it again on September 18 after they decided to wait another eight hours before shutting down. I also realized I missed a few URLs. I missed /cart/add & */_t/c/. I'm not sure /cart/add would have done anything for the archive, maybe it would allow you to add pretend items to a pretend cart. /_t/c/ is just the link you click in an email to view your order, but it's weird; it has a few long strings of capital letters & numbers separated by hyphens, then a super long set of parameters. It does not function if you remove the parameters & redirects to */password. If you do include the parameters it allows you to see all of an order's details EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT LOGGED IN, which I think is a security issue & needs some idiotproofing so people have to log in to see order details. I would love to archive this page, but it's unsafe to do that because then sensitive information would be there
The idea: you input a string and you get the first snapshot/memento of an URL that contains it (or misses it). The process still takes long, because in the background every archived website needs to be opened, but at least I can read on Mastodon in the meantime.
How to Find Differences on Websites in the Internet Archive – Automatically
It looks like I got everything. Every single product page accessible by clicking "Clothing", "Underwear", & "Accessories". Now you should be able to see the entire Nomad Complex website, except for some stuff that requires you to log in & the old Roam Rewards program that got discontinued*. I did get some of the URLs that you need to be logged in for but they redirect to the login page, so at least we know they used to be there.
You should be able to view most of your favorite designs from them once I finish doing all this clicking though.
I've updated my #InternetArchive #IIIF bookmarklet to use the official IIIF service instead of the lab one https://gist.github.com/pbinkley/c30ee85d5ac4590dba3fa8c596d7d358 (all you need to do if you want to edit your bookmarklet is change "archivelab.org" to "archive.org"). The manifest URI isn't linked from the front page of a regular IA item, so the bookmarklet is still useful if you want to copy-and-paste the manifest URI.
For more info on the new #IIIF service at #InternetArchive, here's the video of the Community call: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v59BjV41VlI , and the slides: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1YggU3V9VKUudBTXahvNe8Ou1SOB2s5_BniyXn4KW3lE/edit#slide=id.g27acf71c827_0_1 (with lots of links to examples)
a New Jersey teacher in this 1960 film knows her students by name and how many kids are in the family - and she tells the interviewer she feels guilty about the kids' situation, because she and her community benefit from their parents' work harvesting produce, while the parents and kids don't see much for their work and pains.
- but these kind of simple ideas that we should respect others, would get banned from many libraries today.
"As a community moves towards Despotism, respect is restricted to fewer people."

Second group of authors sue OpenAI, Internet Archive files appeal in controlled digital lending case and Uncle Roger dodges copyright notice.
@Natanox Given that #InternetArchive are facing lawsuits for hosting copyrighted contents by the music labels (even the copyright are too ridiculous that only those corps can benefit from them), I think it's time for a #Fediverse version of #internetarchive
Though given how many people here are very hostile against archiving/bots, I hope that the instances #Fediverse version of Internet Archive aren't preemtively defederated though.
“Libraries are under attack like never before. The core values and library functions of #preservation and #access, equal opportunity, and universal #education are being threatened by book bans, #budget cuts, onerous licensing schemes, and now by this harmful lawsuit. We are counting on the appellate judges to support libraries and our longstanding and widespread library practices in the #digital age. Now is the time to stand up for #libraries.”

On the matter of #Tellico databases, #OpenLibrary had the best results for my books in German as far as 197X and my modern linguistics books in Brazilian Portuguese, and #GoogleBooks had the best results for most books, especially modern ones.
Open Library definitely caught my attention. It's part of the #InternetArchive and it's driven by contributions, so you can help improve the metadata for books yourself. That's pretty cool.
And although I do have a rather strong anti-corporatist streak, I gotta hand it to Google for making Books and Scholar open.
How did I not know this?
Mat*Rat (aka Matthew Ratcliffe), the late Atari 8-bit writer and programmer, lived in Ferguson, Mo., less than 1,500 feet from where I'm typing this now!
I never met him, but as a kid I admired his interesting articles and programs throughout all my old Atari books. I thought it was he cool that he was from "St. Louis."

The Internet Archive
1) is a library
2) has defended library/patron rights in the digital age for about forever (q.v. https://www.newyorker.com/tech/annals-of-technology/what-its-like-to-get-a-national-security-letter)
3) is a key partner of hundreds of libraries including the Library of Congress and

4am’s Crack of Spare Change
Spare Change is an odd little Apple II game from 1983, where the player tries to thwart mischievous creatures who escaped from an arcade game, who are trying to steal quarters from the machines. One of Broderbund's earlier hits, although it never gained the recognition of Lode Runner.
Want to help Internet Archive's Digital Library of Amateur Radio & Communications? Are you in or around #Oakland, California? Are you available WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 30?
In 2015 #InternetArchive acquired a *massive* collection of manuals, rescued from the closing Manuals Plus in Maryland. The manuals were packed up and sent to San Francisco, awaiting for a day some or all of it would be digitized. That day has come.
We need help sorting the manuals, looking for the radio-related stuff.
It just occurred to me that the #InternetArchive is basically the only thing holding back the persistent bit rot that’s destroying the history of the net… so naturally enormous corporations are attempting to destroy them.
Also, one goal of the push towards ubiquitous cloud computing and the War Against General Computing is to watch every single thing we do, and destroy our ability to copy and spread whatever we feel like, instead of what the corporations decide we are “permitted” to partake in.
There is a wonderful 1947 documentary film on "Making Books" on Internet Archive.

It turns out that Automattic operates an @xmpp server at xmpp.wordpress.com:8008 that powers the WordPress.com Firehouse. It serves as an XMPP PubSub to syndicate all posts on WordPress.com and all sites that use WordPress. The WordPress XMPP server can be accessed at im.wordpress.com. WordPress does not connect directly to the XMPP server but rather via Ping-O-Matic!.
Still according to a blog post by Timo Tijhof, Principal Engineer at the Wikimedia Foundation, the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine crawler does not index all websites like Google, for sites that use WordPress, the Internet Archive crawler uses the Firehouse to get website updates.
Posted a scan of the June, 1941 issue of Contemporary Japan: A Review of Far Eastern Affairs to Internet Archive:

In WWII, the US War Department's collection of language phrase books proliferated signficantly. I found a copy of the 1944 Korean phrase book that must have come in handy when US forces showed up on the peninsula in September, 1945. US forces were infamously ill equipped to engage with Korean locals, depending a lot on Japanese interpreters and Japanese speaking Koreans. Posted to IA:

The @internetarchive is one of the most enduring partnerships that the Wikimedia movement has and IA's director, @mark, just gave an update of their work here in #Wikimania2023. One thing I learned today (#TIL) is that they also work on adding links to book citations in Wikipedia articles to their collection and not just web references (via the Wayback Machine). 🎉
I attempted to read an article about the record labels who are suing the Internet Archive over the Great 78 Project, but I couldn't finish it because I was getting so angry. I can't believe the level of greed of these record labels. I sincerely hope all these lawsuits aren't going to bankrupt the Internet Archive. I love using the Internet Archive to find old books in the public domain to download.
Statement from Brewster Kahle, digital librarian of the Internet Archive:
“When people want to listen to music they go to Spotify. When people want to study 78rpm sound recordings as they were originally created, they go to libraries like the Internet Archive. Both are needed. There shouldn’t be conflict here.” https://blog.archive.org/2023/08/14/internet-archive-responds-to-recording-industry-lawsuit-targeting-obsolete-media/ #copyright #music #internetarchive #libraries
Universal Music, Sony Music Entertainment, Capitol, and other record labels filed a copyright lawsuit on Friday against Internet Archive, founder Brewster Kahle, and others over the organization’s “Great 78 Project,” accusing them of behaving as an “illegal record store.” The suit lists 2,749 pre-1972 musical works available via Internet Archive by late artists, including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Chuck Berry, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, and Bing Crosby, among others. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/record-labels-sue-internet-archive-412-million-copyright-infringement-lawsuit-1234806058/ #copyright #music #internetarchive #libraries
The speculative litigants are after both WIkipedia and the Internet Archive - just as corporate rentseekers are after public utilities, welfare, education, and health in the real world. They can smell the money.
I give both a few bucks a month because, yes, I use them almost every day. And they are Internet treasures.
STATEMENT: “The concerted efforts of Big Content to ensure the enshittification of public #libraries and shut down digital libraries like the #InternetArchive could not be clearer than they are with this new lawsuit from the world’s biggest record labels." #music #library #preservation #lawsuit #copyright #copyrighttroll https://www.fightforthefuture.org/news/2023-08-14-statement-major-record-labels-sue-to-destroy-internet-archives-70-120-year-old-music-archive
Levy-yhtiöt haastoivat oikeuteen netin epävirallisen arkiston eli Internet Archiven.
Kiistan keskiössä ovat ikivanhat savikiekolle äänitetyt musiikit, joita Archive.org on digitoinut ja arkistoinut. Levy-yhtiöt vaativat korvauksina arkistolta noin 340 miljoonaa euroa.

“’I’m caught between enforcing the current legal paradigms around copyright and allowing my colleagues to have academic freedom in what they assign students to read’ Mr. Stutzman said. He plans to tell teachers that they need to choose material that is easy to license, even if it is not necessarily the best, until there is more legal clarity.”
The record companies further reject claims that the music being made available illegally needs to be ‘saved’. They claim that of the 2,749 recordings listed in the complaint, all but a “small sample” are already available to stream or download from licensed online platforms so they “face no danger of being lost, forgotten, or destroyed.” — https://torrentfreak.com/record-labels-hit-internet-archive-with-new-400m-copyright-lawsuit-230812/

The archiveweb.page extension seems to work well, but there are hundreds of links I would need to click to get to all the pages I'd like to archive. Ideally this would be an automated solution, though I would be open to writing some Python code to navigate this specific website. I think I would have to have something configured so I could manually log in before the scraping starts.
