In October of 1996, engineers at the the San Francisco-based Internet Archive launched their first web crawlers, taking snapshots of web pages. At the time, the World Wide Web was only 2.5 terabytes in size. In 1996, it was still impossible to predict how large the World Wide Web might become. Even in those early days of the Web, broken links (404 errors) were a growing problem, and it was clear that most Web pages were short-lived. Brewster Kahle and Bruce Gilliat invented a system for...

When Paul Lindner's wife Julie died of cancer, he wanted to find the pieces of their life that were recorded somewhere on the Internet. Paul turned to the Internet Archive and its Wayback Machine to track down the ephemera of their digital lives: old postcard, Usenet exchanges, defunct websites. He was able to create a montage of their years together--as a way to remember and to heal.

With your support, we've made great strides over the last 25 years towards universal access to knowledge. However, it’s important that we don’t take this key human right for granted. So to draw attention to the importance of access to knowledge - and the threats it faces - we’re imagining a world without it.  We invite you to get creative: record a video, create an image, tell a story, send out a social post from the year 2046.

“Quantopia” is a riff on “Quantified Utopia” - a remix of two powerful terms. Plato first conceived of Utopia in his opus The Republic as a Socratic dialog, one of the foundations of Western philosophy. Utopia has a root term in "topos" - same root for "topology" or landscape. A dialog is a conversation, and of course, the Internet and the Web are the biggest conversations humanity has ever had. I wanted to make an acoustic portrait of the sheer impact of the...

The concept originated with Internet Archive founder Brewster Kahle's visit to China where he saw the Xian terra cotta warriors. Brewster has an idea: recognize those that have dedicated years to non-profit service by having an artist make sculptures of them. The collection of Ceramic Archivists is the result of almost five years of work. The artist is ceramic sculptor Nuala Creed . This project is unusual in many respects and it is multi-layered.
