Internet Archive invites you to a fun evening in San Francisco on October 24th for our once-a-year celebration and announcements of new services. (And it just so happens to fall on 1024, which our fellow geeks will recognize as 2^10.) We will drink and be merry with our friends, then gather together to tell you about the new steps we’re taking to guarantee permanent, free access to the world’s knowledge.
