Just saw this site and it's founder on Discovery Channel.

The Internet Archive, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. Like a paper library, we provide free access to researchers, historians, scholars, and the general public.

Awesome!

They've been around for a long time -- I use the wayback machine periodically. It's not a complete archive of everything, but it's fun to poke around in and a wonderful resource to see where and what "we" were.

Since discovering the Internet Archive I have found it extremely useful.
The Wayback Machine has helped me find snapshot copies of numerous "lost" web sites. It is the first place I look if a mudcat BLICKY no longer links to a site. There may be a copy archived by Wayback.

As Rapparee says, it is not a complete collection, but you can find archives of many web sites where the original no longer exists.

The Archive also has sound recordings covering a wide range of music styles. There are hours of concerts by the Grateful Dead which I keep intending to listen to as they are a band I somehow missed when growing up.

All in all, the site is well worth exploring. There would be a lot to be said for a thread listing stuff found there which would be of interest to Mudcatters.

Quack!
Geoff.
