Weekly web archiving roundup: April 8, 2015

Weekly web archiving roundup for the week of April 8, 2015:

  • No wonder NM lawmakers frown on keeping webcasts“. “Archived webcasts of [Albuquerque] Senate floor and Senate Rules Committee action during the 2014 legislative session show a deception unfolding that led to the Legislature’s approval of a questionable sale of a building in a historic district near the Capitol.”
  • Facebook’s ‘On This Day’ seeks to retrieve memories“, from Caitlin Dewey.  Facebook is the latest to get into the nostalgia game with a feature called “On This Day,” which will surface past status updates, photos and posts you’ve been tagged in to a designated page.
  • Indiana’s governor seems to have a long history of opposing gay rights“, from Colin Campbell.  A BuzzFeed reporter noted on Tuesday that a web capture in the Wayback Machine shows Pence, a former congressman, opposing efforts to protect gays from discrimination and supporting “assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behaviour” in 2000.
