Facebook is the worst. They spy on you wherever you are and they try to lock you in.
Which is why it's so alarming that Facebook is going to buy Giphy for $400m.
Giphy isn't just a repository for cute gifs. They're the service that inserts cute gifs when you use Twitter, Tinder, Slack and Imessage. That means that an acquisition of Giphy is a means for Facebook to spy on you while you use all those rival products.

I wrote up some notes about work that is being done to archive the COVID-19 web, and ways that sites like Pinboard and Redfit could help.
One thing that became clear in the middle of writing it is that while Jupyter notebooks are often thought of as datavis tools, they could also have a role to play in documenting how web archives are being assembled.

@andrewjbtw I don't suppose you would have any insider way to figure out if some of the materials linked from here to Stanfor'd Box still are available?
I'm interested in how the web & archival practices meet in people's daily lives.
