  1. Temporary archiving

    Perma.cc’s terms of service include the right to delete anything and close without notice. Not really “the forever business” they promise.

Links

  1. Time Travel

    Search for a URL and a date and this aggregates results from lots of different web archives.

  2. What the Web Said Yesterday - The New Yorker

    On the Internet Archive, Brewster Kahle, and attempts to archive the web in general.

  3. Perma.cc

    A way to create an archived copy of a page for citation purposes. T&Cs say “WE MAKE NO REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES, OR UNDERTAKINGS AS TO PERMANENCE OR THE DURATION OF PRESERVATION.” Brilliant.

    @tomtaylor Yeah, nice. I think that was mentioned in a New Yorker article, now on my Pinboard.

    @paulpod Yeah, printing a website out into a book that the British Library has to archive seems like a good bet.
