Internet Archive To Celebrate Milestone

The archive is supposed to be “Great Library of Alexandria, Version 2.” But Kahle is well aware that Version 1 couldn’t survive the foibles of humans. “The history of libraries is they are burned,” he said. “That’s what will happen to us. We don’t know when. Hopefully, it is centuries from now.”
