You may or may not have heard of “disaster capitalism.” Well here’s a case of “disaster web harvesting!” I just got an email from our friends at the Internet Archive. They’re the ones that preserve the 85 billion+ web pages from 1996 to the present and make them all freely accessible in the Wayback Machine (WOW!!).
Well at 4:30 Pacific Time, they’re going to set up an Archive-It collection to crawl sites regarding the crisis unfolding between Russia and Georgia. If you’ve got a favorite site that you’ve been using to track this crisis, please send urls to Molly Bragg (mbragg AT archive DOT org).
