Preserving the Historical Internet

I am so happy that I can not really put this into words. Actually, very few people find this type of thing interesting so this is more of a moment for me to remember. I came across an artist in “The New Yorker” today. I will not mention the name at this point. I did a bit of research and actually found a website with her work that ran between 1995 – 1999. The browser of choice is “Netscape”! Yes, this is exciting for nerd like me.

If others find this as interesting a me, please view the site on the archive rather than tracking the url. I do NOT want to break it.

Of course, I did the responsible thing. I have archived it in the name of preserving history. This is one of the best feelings that I’ve ever had. I just want to enjoy it. The site is so amazing. It takes some work to navigate as it is very old technology and more than likely if more than 50 people get on it at once it will crash their server. I do not know so I’m not listing it here. If others find this as interesting a me, please view the site on the archive rather than tracking the url. I do NOT want to break it.
