From Chaos Communication Camp 2015
Advances in computing and communications mean that we can cost-effectively store every book,
sound recording, movie, software package, and public web page ever created,
and provide access to these collections via the Internet to students and adults all over the world.
By mostly using existing institutions and funding sources,
we can build this as well as compensate authors within what is current worldwide library budget.
20 petabytes and growing, the Internet Archive is the 250th most popular website.
This talk will discuss the technology and politics of building a large library.
