I hadn’t been following Hachette v. Internet Archive closely, so spent a few minutes listening to Brewster Kahle’s statement. It seems part of a larger issue of whether we can own digital content or will have to rent it. The Internet Archive is such a force for good, glad they’re fighting this.

@haglund I like that idea of an ocasional notification. It does add some costs which is why for now it’s only enabled at our Premium hosting level.

Watching some of the recent Microsoft Copilot demos and playing with Bing, I wonder what AI products they will roll out before everyone else can even attempt to catch up. Maybe a Microsoft voice assistant box? It would leapfrog Alexa and Siri.

@Miraz Thanks. Yes, it skips audio and video. Only HTML, CSS, and images are archived. I’m thinking for video maybe we lean on the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine. Not sure.

@eshwarnag It’s mostly a redesign, with new tabs and navigation that is consistent across iOS and Android. No new features yet but some things will just work better.

The new beta of Micro.blog for iOS is coming along really well. We’re at the point where I can see the finish line, and I’m comfortable punting some more features into the next update.

Spurs eliminated from the playoffs early this year, but you couldn’t tell by watching the 2nd half of this Hawks/Spurs game. So fun to watch. 🏀

@fahrni There’s no Blogger import, so you’d need to get the posts in another format first, like WordPress or Markdown files. If there aren’t a lot of posts they could also be manually copy/pasted in but you’d need to set the date on each one.

@matt Cool! Also just in case it’s not clear, there are 2 things: Surrender is a book by Bono, and Songs of Surrender is an album of re-recorded songs. Both good, although I haven’t gotten far in the book yet.

Listening to U2’s Songs of Surrender. I think I was expecting a kind of “Taylor’s Version”-style re-recording, but it’s more a new take like you’d hear at a concert. Love this. 🎵

@paul Kind of obvious but universal links weren’t really designed for when the client and server apps aren’t basically a single pair of apps run by the same company. 🙂 My 2 cents, universal links often get in the way and might need an overhaul to not create more problems than they solve for Mastodon.

Playing with FeedLand reminds me that Micro.blog doesn’t have OPML export. The reason is because some people might have private-ish RSS feeds that power their account. This is rare but I wanted to be careful about exposing the URLs. Need to first add OPML that only includes obviously-public feeds.
