Introducing the Web History Center
The World Wide Web was designed to bolster the sharing and availability of information. Ironically, the actual records of this technical and cultural transformation are in danger of being lost.
"The good thing about digital media is that you can save everything. The bad thing about digital media is that you can lose everything."
The Web History Center is a non-profit educational organization to make public the history of the World Wide Web and preserve it for posterity.
The Web History Center helps researchers and collection holders to preserve and promote the history of the web era by:
- identifying important and at-risk collections;
- facilitating the preservation of historical materials;
- linking conservation efforts by various institutions and individuals;
- making the web's heritage accessible to educators, students, corporations and the general public.
