Lucas Jacobson yes individual items like on forums or websites like Myspace have disappeared forever because there was no backup. This is actually one of the campaigns I’m fight against a lot – the **indiscriminate deletion** of sites with lots of user contributed content When the AOL message forums from 1989 to 2007 were wiped out overnight by the new company that bought it, I was actually shocked because nobody saw it coming and there was very little backup of any kind from anybody A whole gigantic chunk of Internet history is simply wiped out from a single set of servers Same thing with Myspace a few years later I contribute money to the internet archive to support their efforts at archiving the internet It’s a big issue to me But this is not what Ted is talking about

This is actually one of the campaigns I’m fight against a lot – the **indiscriminate deletion** of sites with lots of user contributed content

When the AOL message forums from 1989 to 2007 were wiped out overnight by the new company that bought it, I was actually shocked because nobody saw it coming and there was very little backup of any kind from anybody

A whole gigantic chunk of Internet history is simply wiped out from a single set of servers

Same thing with Myspace a few years later

I contribute money to the internet archive to support their efforts at archiving the internet

It’s a big issue to me

But this is not what Ted is talking about
