My need-to-save comes from watching my own words DISAPPEAR from the ‘net… and all the promises of FOREVER broken. Time and time and time again.

Oh cool – post apocolyptic monastic environment saving knowledge for posterity in a hostile time? Love it! It’s me.

My need-to-save comes from watching my own words DISAPPEAR from the ‘net… and all the promises of FOREVER broken. Time and time and time again.

That’s what started the collection effort. The www was born broken because it wasn’t ready for this level of change in ’93 when the doors opened up to commerce in a BIG WAY.

I remember the thread on Usenet in 1993: “The Death of the Internet”
and they were right, almost. The Internet of ’93 lives on… but it’s gone Open source… and you have to search harder to find like-minds and people with an interest in not losing this rapidly disappearing knowledge.

Try to find something online pre-2009. It gets harder and harder to do.
