We are gearing up under a similar program in LA. We hope other cities get similar matching systems.

    That’s awesome thank you

  2. Grand KUDOS to Internet Archives for 1) helping to reduce homelessness/unemployment by hiring those less-well-off to help build the planet’s best online-archive ever! Unbelievably wonderful! Where-else but in the best USA city of San Francisco, where I was born too… (I have been an anti-homeless activist since 1993).

    2) Thanks so very much for letting me host several of my radio-related albums/archives on IA too! Stephen P. McGreevy, 24 September 2013
