    Wow. Is that the new screenshot endpoint, @MarkGraham_twitter ?
    Richard Caceres
    @rchrd2_twitter
    It looks like it finds the nearest screen shot based on the timestamp. There are a lot less screenshots than there are captures. So we still might want a different service that generates a screenshot from the wayback machine.

    Hey @Treora! Want to join the zoom again?
    I think we have our ducks in a row
    Step 1) Get the whole Manual for Civilization collection mirrored digitally

    Hi Thanks for the links
    Here's our repo. It's still a skeleton though: https://github.com/ArchiveLabs/wayback-coverflow

    @osnr awesome

    @osnr
    one thing which would be useful btw would be to add CORS support to as many of the APIs as you can :-)

    Thank you everyone for making this a wonderful event and for bearing with our attempts at organization!
    A lot we can improve in the future, I hope people felt included and weren't too blocked!

    @osnr how did you generate your images for the diffing? did you screenshot them using a service?

    @eseiver
    Argh, I think I left my noise canceling headphones at IA, pls let me know if you find!
    Mitra Ardron
    @mitra42
    @eseiver I think everyone has left, but if you ping me Monday I’ll look around.
    Elizabeth Seiver
    @eseiver
    Will do, thanks @mitra42

    I think we found some headphones. Mek should have them.
    Also found a USB charger, though not sure if it's actually lost, or just owned by the archive.
    Michael E. Karpeles
    @mekarpeles
    I'm still here + have found said headphones!
    P.S. The recordings (of what's available) from our talks: https://archive.org/details/archive-experiments-hackathon-2017
    And Conor's black notebook is here too.
    Michael E. Karpeles
    @mekarpeles
    I'll take all of these things to my place at 14th & S. Van Ness (near 16th st. Bart) and will happily coordinate to make sure everyone gets their belongings back!

    @rchrd2_twitter the screenshots are actually generated on the fly in the browser from the archived page -- that's why it has to be a chrome extension

    That's awesome 8) no way to take a screenshot using canvas I wonder?

    Omar Rizwan
    @osnr
    You can, but only if your script is in a Chrome extension (like mine) or running on the same domain
    Michael E. Karpeles
    @mekarpeles
    Ah. I wonder if we can gen the screenshots for you on the fly
    Omar Rizwan
    @osnr
    so it might work as just a page if it were on archive.org or web.archive.org? or if added to the header or something on the archived pages
    Michael E. Karpeles
    @mekarpeles
    Can probably create an endpoint w/ caching as well as a Labs service.
    Omar Rizwan
    @osnr
    Yeah that could be great
    Michael E. Karpeles
    @mekarpeles
    Lets see if we can team on that! Would love to set that up with you and make it easier for people to use w/o install!
    Thanks for your work on this!!!
    Omar Rizwan
    @osnr
    I'm using this https://github.com/niklasvh/html2canvas which is kind of a hack but seems to work pretty well
    Yeah!
    Michael E. Karpeles
    @mekarpeles
    Let me see if I can get to it tomorrow. I also promised IA team that I'd make some improvements on Open Library :)
    I'll open an issue and assign to myself
    Omar Rizwan
    @osnr
    @mekarpeles wrong project I think! :)
    Omar Rizwan
    @osnr
    second demo: https://github.com/osnr/waypatch hopefully standalone web page (rather than Chrome extension) soon for this...
    Michael E. Karpeles
    @mekarpeles
    Fixed, apologies!
    Oh, I did it again XD
    I give up, I should get some sleep :)

    Re: Screenshots. Thanks for the response.

    We looked into screenshot micro services, but didn't have time to find a solution.
    Here's a DIY one: https://github.com/fzaninotto/screenshot-as-a-service
    Here's one that Linda found that has a very limited free tier. We almost used it, but hit the rate/amount walls and it became unusable. http://api.screenshotlayer.com/api/capture?access_key=d88b769274f5fe1ca50677fdbc0e7b7c&url=https://web.archive.org/web/20170822233016/https://jquery.org/&viewport=1440x900&width=1000
