Activists rally to save Internet Archive as a lawsuit from publishers threaten to shut it down https://decrypt.co/31906/activists-rally-save-internet-archive-lawsuit-threatens
If people are smart, it's time to archive the Archive right now. In other words, fork it and turn it unto a decentralized platform. I hope someone out there is working on that.
Plus you have to think libraries need some decentralization as well as this lawsuit could kill libraries as we know them.
@joeo They've been waiting for an excuse to do this, ever since Glenn Beck did that show hating on libraries a couple of years back. I'm quite surprised that it's stayed around as long as it has.
And, of course, the archive.bak project has been inert for a good while. /r/datahoarder has been worried about it for a while but I don't know if there's an organized effort.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
