Co-op News: Researchers build online index for the Co-op News

Co-op News: Researchers build online index for the Co-op News. “Co-operative resource centre Principle 5 is developing an online index for Co-operative News so to help researchers track down articles. Back copies of the paper, which dates back to 1871, are viewable at Principle 5, as well as the National Co-operative Archive in Manchester and Liverpool John Moores University. But, in the absence of an index, students of the movement face a hard task looking for specific articles or subjects.”

Buffalo State College: Zine Scene: Buffalo State Music Publications Preserved in New Digital Archive. “Long before music websites, blogs, and social media accounts provided a means of instant communication, fanzines—or zines—were one of the few ways for aspiring rock writers to get published.

With funding from United Students Government, two influential zines—the Shakin’ Street Gazette (SSG) and Foxtrot—were published and distributed throughout the city.”

Washington Post: Article or ad? Teen Vogue removes glowing Facebook story without explanation.

Washington Post: Article or ad? Teen Vogue removes glowing Facebook story without explanation.. “The laudatory article carried a lofty headline, praising Facebook for fighting misinformation ahead of the 2020 presidential election. One of the tech giant’s executives, Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, liked it so much, she posted it to her own page, calling it ‘great.’ But the ‘article,’ published online Wednesday by Teen Vogue, appeared without a byline and read more like a 2,000-word news release than a piece of journalism, prompting some to ask whether Facebook had paid to place it.”

Blake’s Sanctum: SEGA MegaZone Preservation Archive NEEDS YOUR HELP!

Blake’s Sanctum: SEGA MegaZone Preservation Archive NEEDS YOUR HELP!. “Being an Australian magazine (presumably with no international distribution) this great old magazine and piece of video game history from the early to mid 90s, arguably the greatest era in retro gaming due to the 16bit console wars and the rise of mainstream PC gaming (Point & click adventures, 1st person shooters, and RTS+TBS strategy games) has sadly disappeared into near obscurity with only a small internet presence and a few mangy old mags occasionally appearing on ebay.
