Friday Funday: The web the way it was – discover the WayBack Machine!


wayback-machine-logoNamed for a device used in a segment of the old “Rocky & Bullwinkle” cartoon series, Mr. Peabody’s WABAC Machine (pronounced “way back machine”), the WayBack Machine is a project of the nonprofit Internet Archive that includes millions of free books, movies, software, music, and websites.

With the ambitious goal of eventually archiving the entire World Wide Web, the WayBack Machine also provides access to free audio books, saved live music performances, old time radio broadcasts, and a television archive. A tools page includes a space for visitors to add pages to be considered for the archive.

This weekend, share some memories and introduce the younger set to life as it was online and IRL (“in real life”) via the WayBack Machine! (Visit archive.org)
