Fwd: Video: The Birth of the Internet Archive


25 years ago, the entire World Wide Web was only 2.5 terabytes in size. Most connections were dial-up, important records were stored on tape, and a young engineer named Brewster Kahle was working on a revolutionary project—a way to archive the growing Internet.

Filmed by Marc Weber for the Web History Project, this video showcases the Internet Archive's very first web crawl in 1996. In 2001, the project was made accessible to the public through the Wayback Machine. Today, the Internet Archive is home to more than 588 billion web pages, as well as 28 million books and texts, 14 million audio items, and 580,000 software titles, making us one of the world's largest digital libraries.

As the Internet Archive approaches our 25th anniversary, let's take a look at the hardware and high hopes that drove the project from the very beginning—and hear from the man whose vision made it all possible.


Thanks for being a part of our journey, and enjoy the archive!
