Ten Petabytes (10,000,000,000,000,000 bytes) of cultural material saved!
On Thursday, 25 October, hundreds of Internet Archive supporters, volunteers, and staff celebrated addition of the 10,000,000,000,000,000th byte to the Archive’s massive collections.
We also announced
- full 80Terabyte web crawl to researchers;
- the first complete literature of a people went online: Balinese
The only thing missing was electricity; the building lost all power just as the presentation was to begin. Thanks to the creativity of the Archive’s engineers and a couple of ridiculously long extension cords that reached a nearby house, the show went on.
