History is littered with hundreds of conflicts over the future of a community, group, location or business that were “resolved” when one of the parties stepped ahead and destroyed what was there. With the original point of contention destroyed, the debates would fall to the wayside. Archive Team believes that by duplicated condemned data, the conversation and debate can continue, as well as the richness and insight gained by keeping the materials. Our projects have ranged in size from a single volunteer downloading the data to a small-but-critical site, to over 100 volunteers stepping forward to acquire terabytes of user-created data to save for future generations.
The main site for Archive Team is at archiveteam.org and contains up to the date information on various projects, manifestos, plans and walkthroughs.
This collection contains the output of many Archive Team projects, both ongoing and completed. Thanks to the generous providing of disk space by the Internet Archive, multi-terabyte datasets can be made available, as well as in use by the Wayback Machine, providing a path back to lost websites and work.
Our collection has grown to the point of having sub-collections for the type of data we acquire. If you are seeking to browse the contents of these collections, the Wayback Machine is the best first stop. Otherwise, you are free to dig into the stacks to see what you may find.
The Archive Team Panic Downloads are full pulldowns of currently extant websites, meant to serve as emergency backups for needed sites that are in danger of closing, or which will be missed dearly if suddenly lost due to hard drive crashes or server failures.
It was a good night for Anoop Desai.
The 21-year-old college student impressed the American Idol judges with his soulful rendition of Willie Nelson’s Always on My Mind during Tuesday’s Grand Ole Opry-themed performance show.
It’s good to see him back on top. Anoop proved he deserves his spot in the Top 13.
Paula: “Anoop is back! I’m so proud of you…it fit you like a glove…you touched my heart.”
Simon: “You’ve just managed to go from zero to hero…good choice of song…one of my favorite performances of the night…I take it back you deserve to be in this show.”
Randy: “This is the reason we really wanted you in the competition. I like the arrangement.”
Kara: Untouchable song…but you did it…the biggest surprise.”
