Hey, I just saw this for the first time
an animated gif in a news story. I know a while back we talked about whether animated gifs are really valuable for our purposes, or if they are kinda… faddish. Well, who knows, but if news outlets are going to use them for their stories, and really, we’ve all seen Harry Potter’s magic papers, and I think news sites absolutely ought to, then we’ll probably be archiving them whether we think they are worthwhile or not. Seeing this really did actually change my thinking on the format.
Also, Happy Oberon Day.
