The Internet Archive Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary

Tom Foremski writes the following for ZDNet:

The San Francisco-based Internet Archive celebrates 25 years preserving the history of the internet, TV, and radio broadcasts. It is currently storing 475 billion web pages, 28 million scans of books and texts, and 14 million audio recordings—adding up to 30 petabytes of data and beyond.

The Internet Archive has collected writings from more than one hundred million people so far. …

There is currently a two-to-one matching offer for donations to the nonprofit organization. … 

The Internet Archive is currently fighting a legal challenge from four large publishers over its ability to lend out more digital copies of a book than it has physical copies. The Electronic Frontier Foundation is helping with a legal defense.
