I just started a new web graphics class tonight, and I'm excited about some cool things I just learned. Here's an interesting one... there's a neat web site called waybackmachine that allows users to browse through 85 billion web pages archived from 1996 to a few months ago. To start surfing the Wayback, type in the web address of a site or page where you would like to start, and press enter. Then select from the archived dates available. The site also features unique collections from historical moments and disasters, both natural and man-made, such as Hurricane Katrina, the Tsunami, September 11, web pioneers (those who influenced the early days of the internet), and the election 2000. You can even submit your own URL if you want to add to the collection. How cool is that?
