Internet Archaeology

picture-3872

Founded by artist Ryder Ripps, Internet Archaeology is a project that “seeks to explore, recover, archive and showcase the graphic artifacts found within earlier Internet Culture.” It’s essentially a repository of imagery from old Geocities and Angelfire sites, including a full few mirrors of some old homepages. This is an important service because, as their mission statement points out, Yahoo will be taking down Geocities in October 2009. I miss the pre-Web 2.0 internet!

    Wow, that’s awesome. Yeah I miss pre Web2.0 too, I used to have sites hosted on so many of those prehistoric servers. I had a Geocities, Angelfire, Tripod… and probably something else too that I can’t remember. Hoorah!
