Embedding Yourself in the Internet

A lot of people worry about information about themselves showing up on the internet. Pictures from the past their spouse might find. Accounts on shady sites that they no longer have access to and can’t delete. Things they posted when they were younger and less than wise. And there is a definite reason to worry. Once something shows up on the internet, then it’s pretty much there now, in many places. Oh, you can take it down from the original location. But then there is Google that will cache t...

Border Patrol union deletes 2012 anti-border wall web page that argued walls waste taxpayer money

A union that represents agents for the U.S. Border Patrol deleted a 2012 page from their website that said building walls or fences along the U.S./Mexico border to stop desperate migrants would be “wasting taxpayer money.” VICE's Motherboard reports that the deleted web page was originally posted in 2012. It carried an argument against walls like the one Trump's pushing today, and said border barriers don’t tackle migration's root causes, and may encourage more migrants to enter the U.S. thro...

When the Internet Archive Forgets

A reminder that Internet Archive's Wayback Machine, which many people assume keeps a permanent trail and origin of web-content, has little feasible choice but to comply with DMCA takedown notices. As a result of which, a portion of the archive of things people submit to the website continues to quietly fade away. Gizmodo: Over the last few years, there has been a change in how the Wayback Machine is viewed, one inspired by the general political mood. What had long been a useful tool when you cam...

When the Internet Archive Forgets

On the internet, there are certain institutions we have come to rely on daily to keep truth from becoming nebulous or elastic. Not necessarily in the way that something stupid like Verrit aspired to, but at least in confirming that you aren’t losing your mind, that an old post or article you remember reading did, in…Read more...

Now on the Internet Archive: Brett Kavanaugh's 1983 Georgetown Prep yearbook

The wonderful people of the Internet Archive have posted a scan of the 1983 edition of Cupola, the yearbook of Georgetown Prep, alma mater of a rageaholic blackout drunk widely favored by Republican Senators for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court of the United States Senate. Before today, only some of the yearbook pages — like Kavanaugh’s and that of his close friend Mark Judge — were published by a small number of news organizations, including The Intercept and the New York T...

Internet Archive project helps restore millions of broken Wikipedia links

The web, it turns out, is a fragile place. Companies, governments, educational institutions, individuals and organizations put up and take down sites all the time. The problem is that the web has become a system of record, and when links don’t work because pages no longer exist, the record is incomplete. With the help of volunteers from Internet Archive, Wikipedia has been able to recover 9 million broken links and help solve that problem for at least one knowledge base. The Internet Archi...

The Old Cyburbia Post Cards are back up...sort of

Anyone who was here before 2009 may remember that I used to have a webpage on Geocities showing post cards of the hometowns or current locations of fellow Cyburbians. But when geocities disappeared, so did the pages. I just never bothered to remove it from my signature. However, just today, when I happened to click on my signature, it did give the old URL, which it never did over the past 9 years. (It just redirected you to another site and I was never able to get the actual old URLs to try a...

how to get your website removed from the wayback machine

During my recent attack by wingnut trolls, I learned something new: how to request that the Internet Archive remove your site from the Wayback Machine.* * * *Before I was nominated as an NDP candidate in the recent provincial election, of course my online presence had to be vetted. All potential candidates were asked to deactivate their personal profiles from social media, and in addition I was asked to delete a few random tweets from several years ago. None of this was a big deal to me. The onl...

Trump's baby-snatching border policy "cruel" and "immoral", writes Laura Bush

Unlike most of the GOP, former first lady Laura Bush is not afraid of Trump. His policy of taking children from their parents and putting them in detention centers, she writes, is "eerily reminiscent" of internment camps. "Our government should not be in the business of warehousing children." (Wayback Machine link) The term "baby-snatching" isn't hers, though. That's from today's opionion piece in the New York Times. This may well be one of the most callous policies the Trump administration ...

Trust Your Data: How to Efficiently Filter Spam, Bots, & Other Junk Traffic in Google Analytics

Posted by CarlosesalThere is no doubt that Google Analytics is one of the most important tools you could use to understand your users' behavior and measure the performance of your site. There's a reason it's used by millions across the world. But despite being such an essential part of the decision-making process for many businesses and blogs, I often find sites (of all sizes) that do little or no data filtering after installing the tracking code, which is a huge mistake. Think of a Google Analy...

The Wayback Machine is Deleting Evidence of Malware Sold To Stalkers

The Internet Archive's Wayback Machine is a service that preserves web pages. But the site has been deleting evidence of companies selling malware to illegally spy on spouses, Motherboard reported Tuesday. From the report: The company in question is FlexiSpy, a Thailand-based firm which offers desktop and mobile malware. The spyware can intercept phone calls, remotely turn on a device's microphone and camera, steal emails and social media messages, as well as track a target's GPS location. Previ...

MSNBC Promotes Claim That Joy Reid’s Homophobic Blog Posts Result Of Hack

After a new batch of homophobic blog posts that appear to be written by liberal MSNBC host Joy Reid surfaced on Monday, Reid claimed that she was a victim of a hack. MSNBC in turn promoted Reid’s claims that she was hacked, sending reporters a statement and letter from Reid’s lawyer claiming that her blog had been hacked. Reid first addressed past homophobic comments on her old blog in December, when the first batch of posts were surfaced by Twitter user @Jamie_Maz. At the time, Reid apologized ...

Declining Organic Traffic? How to Tell if it’s a Tracking or Optimization Issue

Special counsel Mueller subjects yet another low-level, non-violent offender to federal sentencing

The slightly cheeky title for this post is my gut reaction to the latest news emerging from the latest work by federal prosecutors working with special counsel Robert Mueller.  This BuzzFeed News piece, headlined "The Special Counsel's Office Has Charged A Lawyer Working For The Ukrainian Government With Lying To The FBI," reports the following (with links from original): The special counsel's office has charged a lawyer who did work for the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice with lying to the FBI, ...

Library of Congress Gives Up Collecting All Tweets Because Twitter Is Garbage

Left Turns, Nest Summit, A Big Mistake and a Question | Note from Jim
