I tried to use the Internet to do historical research. It was nearly impossible. – The Washington Post

Since the mid-’90s, the Internet Archive has been trawling the information super highway. It’s robots crawl the Internet and copy every webpage they can find, every two months. So far, it has archived more than 430,000,000,000 web pages.

It’s a rich and fantastic resource for historians of the near-past. Historians like me.
