We are honored to announce that the Internet Archive has been named as one of the 21st annual Webby Awards winners!
Hailed as one of the Internet’s highest honors, we’re excited to receive a Webby Lifetime Achievement award and join the ranks of our friends like Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Lawrence Lessig, and Vint Cerf.
Webby Lifetime Achievement: Archive.org for its commitment to making the world’s knowledge available online and preserving the history of the Internet itself. With a vast collection of digitized materials and tools like the Wayback Machine, Archive.org has become a vital resource not only to catalogue an ever-changing medium, but to safeguard a free and open Internet for everyone.
We thank the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences for the award and are looking forward to attending the Webby Awards in New York City on May 15.
