Internet Time Machine

Remember my post about Google and Yahoo From The Old Time? You didn't think that I made those screen capture from long time ago, did you? Well, in fact I didn't. Going back in time is surely not possible, at least not for now. Luckily, a website called Internet Archive WayBack Machine allows us to blast to the past and surfing through the Internet in the past. The idea is simple, it crawls web pages and puts them into archive. Obviously, it's not possible to archive every single web site running out there, but their attempt is quite incredible. Up until now, they claimed to have around 85 billion web pages archived from 1996.

You could access the WayBack Machine directly from the website or use the button for browser by drag-and-drop this link: Wayback to your browser toolbar. Enjoy the past.
