Archiveteam, the proposed league of archiving superheroes I mentioned in a weblog entry and then another one, has been a wonderful success so far. The website is being updated frequently, the occasional project goes underway to save things, and a sad loneliness I felt about the process of saving things has been greatly assuaged. I encourage you to visit the site, contibute thoughts and ideas, and be sure to tip us off when something has gone terribly wrong. The goals are myriad but I think the easiest one to achieve is to highlight and embarass companies that take a cavalier attitude to removing user data with extraordinarily short notice.
It’s amazing what happens when you ask for help.
