Weekly web archiving roundup: December 5, 2015

Here is the weekly web archiving roundup for December 5, 2015:

  • Data Storage on DNA Can Keep It Safe for Centuries: Recent advances suggest there may be a new way to store the exploding amount of computer data–and for centuries, rather than decades.
  • Building an archive on the Moon (and doing science, too): In theory, an extraterrestrial data archive will pay for some unique science.
  • Recreate the old-school internet with this web browser emulator: Oldweb.today not only shows ancient websites, but lets you visit them with ancient browsers.
  • Why It’s So Important To Understand What’s In Our Web Archives: It is simply impossible to archive the “entire internet” and perfectly preserve every change to every page in existence.
  • IHR workshop on web archiving: An Introduction to Web Archiving for Historians.
  • People, communities and platforms–Digital cultural heritage and the web: Trevor Owens’s opening keynote for the National Digital Forum in New Zealand.
