Pandora

Chris mentions that he’s being archived by Pandora at the moment, which is the National Library’s attempt to archive all of the “Australian” Internet. I’m being crawled at the moment too, which was probably helped by dad having worked at the national for 20 something years, and having lunch with the right people.

Once every few years, the national attempts to archive all Australian sites. They do this by assuming that Australian sites are in the .au TLD, which is a little bogus. I’ve suggested to them that they use whois information to determine the location of the author instead. It will be interesting to see if they have listened.
