This month, Hazel Kahan’s guest on Tidings is Brewster Kahle, founder of the Internet Archive and the Wayback Machine. While he was present at what he calls “the trailing edge of the hippies” of the Internet’s birth, his participation continues deep within the ethos shaping the Creative Commons, Public Domain, open source technology and Wikipedia (featured in last month’s Tidings). Kahle discusses the Archive’s motto (Universal Access to All Knowledge) and mission (to make everything in libraries, archives and museums “freely available to the world” for which, not surprisingly, the organization encounters steady opposition from the publishing industry. In this delightful interview, we learn that, despite the drama of hastily dispatched emails, information and links do not in fact exist forever on the Internet but are subject to “rot” and disappearance, making the Archive’s role in remembering “everything” all the more crucial.
