IndieWeb Newsletter should include new videos from the IndieWeb Archive.org account

I don’t remember if the Newsletter used to pick up videos from the IndieWebCamp YouTube account, but I’m pretty sure we haven’t set up any automation for the IndieWeb Newsletter to find and highlight our Archive.org videos. This feature would be nice to have, particularly on weeks following IndieWebCamps to notify everyone that the videos have been processed and posted.

Here’s a page on Archive.org for creating search queries without output of a variety of formats for raw data or even feeds: https://archive.org/advancedsearch.php#raw

The search should include at least videos posted from the IndieWeb account: https://archive.org/details/@indieweb

It might be worth having it pick up anything with the tags or common keywords like IndieWeb, IndieWebCamp, Webmention, Micropub, etc., but this may also require some moderation or oversight.
