About

Archive Team is a loose collective of rogue archivists, programmers, writers and loudmouths dedicated to saving our digital heritage. Since 2009 this variant force of nature has caught wind of shutdowns, shutoffs, mergers, and plain old deletions - and done our best to save the history before it's lost forever.

Along the way, we've gotten attention, resistance, press and discussion, but most importantly, we've gotten the message out: IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY.

Contribute

Right now, we're fundraising for two primary needs:

  1. We have a big backlog of bugs, technical debt, and feature requests. We want to hire our coders in 5-hour chunks to churn through some of this work.
  2. We want to run more servers for ArchiveBot.
