A good day to think about web history

14 years ago today was a big news day, including here on Scripting News.

Under a piece I wrote about future-safety, Adam Gerstein posts a comment suggesting today is a good day to take a look at this.

Most of the history is gone

Try clicking on the links in the weblog for this day 14 years ago. You'll find most of the stuff is gone. Gerstein says a lot of it isn't in the Internet Archive either.

I've tried to sound the alarms. Every day we lose more of the history of the web. Every day is an opportunity to act to make sure we don't lose more of it. And we should be putting systems into place to be more sure we don't lose future history.
