"You could call Brewster Kahle the Internet’s librarian. He’s the founder of Internet Archive, a huge digital archive that’s home to video, music, audio and books. We use it all the time on Spark as a resource.

One of the coolest things about is the Wayback Machine. It’s a way to tour through the history of the web. You can type in a URL and see that that website looked like all the way in, say, 1996!

Nora’s interview with Brewster will be featured on this week’s show, but you can hear the uncut version here. Brewster talks about what it will mean for our culture if we don’t take the time to upload new and old media to the web. He also weighs in on copyright, and what the Library of Alexandria could have learned from Internet Archive."
