Out of the Blue

MTV News Website Goes Dark, Archives Pulled Offline. This is part of the disturbing trend of lost digital history, and it doesn't seem like there's much to be done about it from the outside. For our small part, we fight this how we can here, and a few years ago Frans and I (okay, mostly Frans) undertook a major project to add our HTML news from the 1990s into our Blammo database to complete our searchable archive. It's sad to see larger sites taking the opposite approach and cutting and running like this. Oh well, there's always the embattled Internet Archive.
