The Wayback Machine’s Save Page Now is New and Improved #Citations #History @InternetArchive
The Internet Archive has released a great new feature! Pages can now be saved in snapshot form which is great for referencing things or creating citations.
Save Page Now (SPN) just got a major upgrade as a result of a total code rewrite, adding a slew of new and awesome features, with more on the way.
When users are logged in with their free Archive.org account, SPN-generated archives can be saved to that user’s “My web archive” public gallery of archived pages.
Have you ever wanted to archive all the web pages linked from an email message? Well, you are in luck because now you can forward that email to “firstname.lastname@example.org” and after a few minutes you will get an email back filled with Wayback Machine playback URLs.
URLs embedded in a web-based PDF file, RSS feed, or JSON file can be archived. The new SPN will parse those files and archive all the URLs they contain. To use this feature, simply submit PDF/RSS or JSON URLs to SPN, and don’t forget to select the “capture outlinks” checkbox.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
