Making The Internet Archive Useful

from the tough-task dept

SF Gate has a good article about Brewster Kahle and the Internet Archive. They talk about how, despite being extremely cool to play around with, the Wayback Machine is somewhat useless as a research tool. I don't fully agree with that, but it is good news that they're working on even cooler ways to make use of the internet archive (even if they're not quite sure what those tools will be). Reading this article makes me more upset that Brewster Kahle is speaking at the same time that I am presenting at the O'Reilly Emerging Technologies Conference next month. It would be cool to hear what he has to say.
