A Short History of Web Archiving

I’ve been meaning to write a short history of web archiving for ages and I never got around to it. Fortunately, Ariel Bleicher did get around to it, with this great article in IEEE Spectrum:

A Memory of Webs Past.

Definitely worth a read. Now a little into the future…

I’m presenting “Commercial Web Archives” at the next IIPC meeting at The Hague on 09 May 2011, with a demonstration of what may be the next stage in the development of web archiving – including demo’s of archived social media, form-based content (I don’t mean simply logging in, I mean multi-page, multi-variable, complex forms), interactive Ajax pages, streaming media, etc. It’s open to the public, so come along.
