SAVE THE DATE — The Internet Archive Turns 20!

View from last year's annual celebration. Our 20th anniversary is coming up and we’re throwing a party! Please save the date and join us for our annual celebration on Wednesday, October 26th, 2016.

We’ll kick off the evening with cocktails, tacos and hands-on demo stations. Come scan a book, play in a virtual reality arcade, search billions of Web pages in our Wayback Machine and so much more! Then check out the interactive new media projects by talented artists working with our collections.

Starting at 7 p.m., Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky — composer, author, teacher, electronics DJ and multi-media artist — will perform a short, original musical retrospective of the Internet Archive’s audio collections. We’ll look back on some of the defining moments of the past 20 years, and explore how media and messaging is impacting the 2016 Election.

And to keep you dancing into the evening, DJ Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus, will be spinning 45rpm records from 8-9:30. We hope you can join our celebration!

    APOLOGY
    Please delete my double posted comments (both versions).
    Extensive search now indicates that the problem has to do with a possible virus embedded in a player recently downloaded.

    I apologize that in my fury I made aspersions; but the file losses always followed a login to your site. My mistake.

    (I don’t own any .45 by the way. But I was drinking some last night.)

    Wow! Congratulations in advance 🙂
    Thank you to show the initial version of top most sites. :p

  3. Will there be a livestream of this? Although I’d love to visit, living in the UK makes it a bit impractical!

      Hi David–
      We will definitely be taping the event–haven’t decided if there is enough interest to also Live Stream! But one way or the other, you will be able to see it on archive.org
      –Wendy
