Yesterday’s Digital Life…whilst cheering our Game producers in Singapore, managed to shock APLINK with its FEATURE story “Screening the Screen”… DL with its massive distribution in SG provided a full page AD/Editorial for Archive.org with all its blood thirsty archives of violence…placed under the label of History….
I guess with this post I too am spreading the word of this historical video collection, yet I think I am SANE in most respects – however the graphic description by the author, Annalee Newitz, contributing editor at Wired Magazine, sent alarm bells on high volumne in my head…
“… what if you were just a little insane and seeing these videos was all you needed to tip you over the edge…”
Archive.org appears to be alot more than violence but i wonder how many might think it just another youtube, if not for the relatively uncensored content it offers for the curious.
The Internet Archive is building a digital library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form. Like a paper library, we provide free access to researchers, historians, scholars, and the general public. http://www.arhive.org
