Yahoo! are about to delete all user-generated content on Yahoo! Video and that is really busting my crank, as well as the crank of a lot of people that have joined Archive Team to rescue it. We’re now to the point that the whole process is pretty smooth, and we’re getting in the end-time amount of stuff left to do, but we need your help, UNIX-knowing person with a server having more than 500gb free. Oh, you know who you are.
The Archive Team do important work that is worthy of your money and time.
Jesper answers my call. Makes sense, now.
Earlier today Yahoo and Microsoft signed a 10 year deal which sees Yahoo not developing any new search technologies, and using Bing for it’s algorithms. Like most of you, I fail to see how reducing the main Search players from 3 to 2 creates “more innovation”, but does anyone even read these press releases anymore? The official site for the deal is begging for a PR-Speak-To-English translation.
