archiving and the way back machine…

the way back machine has been one of those neat online places i have visited over the years. in particular when i want to see how a corporates online (website) presence has developed over time ie how they may have strengthened or matured the company brand  (believe me its quite interesting!!).

you can pick up a wealth of information through this site: www.archive.org

so, in discussions today i mused whether they had started a way back machine or archive for blogs. obviously i had to go research what was out there.

it didnt surprise me in the least that they had started archiving. for example here’s NASA’s listings where the way back machine is even tracking twitter feeds:

conclusion:

what you say is in the history books folks!! -> it aint going anywhere until someone runs out of server space!! and perhaps with NASA behind it – they wont? run out of space that is 🙂

    I know how true this is … I have dug up and saved all my previous sites designs, all the way back to 2001! It is a great site for seeing how far one has progressed whilst not losing focus on the future!
