“Last time we checked, Internet Archive had more than 75,000 moving images, 40,000 live music concerts, 150,000 audio recordings and 225,000 texts,” added Cheung. The company’s Wayback Machine archive is even more impressive. “Wayback Machine currently has more than 85 billion web pages in its archive. Want to see what your favorite site looked like years back? Just enter the url into the Wayback Machine and they’ll take you back. Take a look at Yahoo! 10 years ago, and see how the web has changed.”
