Internet Archive Amasses All TV News Since 2009

Bill Carter, reporting for the NYT:

Inspired by a pillar of antiquity, the Library of Alexandria,
Brewster Kahle has a grand vision for the Internet Archive, the
giant aggregator and digitizer of data, which he founded and
leads. “We want to collect all the books, music and video that has
ever been produced by humans,” Mr. Kahle said.

As of Tuesday, the archive’s online collection will include every
morsel of news produced in the last three years by 20 different
channels, encompassing more than 1,000 news series that have
generated more than 350,000 separate programs devoted to news.

The Internet Archive is an amazing resource.
