The Tremendous 10 link roundup, #92

  1. The Mission to Save Vanishing Internet Art | “In the early days of the web, art was frequently a cause and the internet was an alternate universe in which to pursue it. Two decades later, preserving this work has become a mission. As web browsers and computer operating systems stopped supporting the software tools they were built with, many works have fallen victim to digital obsolescence.”
  2. Kid needs permission slip to read ‘Fahrenheit 451,’ his dad’s response is brilliant | “The temperature at which permission slips receive sick burns.”
  3. Why I ignore the daily news and read The Economist instead (and how you can too) | “I don’t follow the daily news. I don’t read a paper, watch TV news, or follow any news outlets on Twitter. Still, I want to know what’s happening in the world—both near to me and far away. But I find the daily news distracting. It steals my attention away from the important projects and people in my life.”
  4. Internet Archive turns 20, gives birthday gifts to the world | “On May 12, 1996, like a benevolent mad scientist, Brewster Kahle brought the Internet Archive to life.

Inspired by and emulating the Library at Alexandria, the Internet Archive began its mission to preserve and provide universal access to all knowledge.”

  8. The Yale Record Does Not Endorse Hillary Clinton | “In its 144-year history, The Yale Record has never endorsed a Democratic candidate for president. In fact, we have never endorsed any candidate for president. This is, in part, due to our strong commitment to being a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization, which mandates that we are ‘absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office.'”
