  • The scanning room at the end of the party. The Archive's scanning services offer open and free online access, permanent storage and lifetime file management. It was heartwarming to see how much the volunteers love their work, and geeked out with big smiles whenever someone asked a question.

  • The downstairs office at the Internet Archive. The Archive was established in 1996, is a non-profit, believes in free and open access to knowledge for all, and is dedicated to preserving the internet. I liked seeing an Iron Man mask at one Archive employee's desk.

  • The Archive is making 80 terabytes of archived web crawl research available for research. Keep up with more of the Archive's history-making archival activities by watching the Archive's blog or following the Internet Archive on Twitter.
