What is This Site?
Liberty Archives is a privately run, data archiving project. Imagine the internet and all of mankind's creations are the Library of Alexandria. We are the equivilent of 1 person going through every single book with a chisel and stone tablets, trying to copy every book by hand.
Our goal is to collect and preserve as much digital content on physical drives as we possibly can to preserve the internet, our culture, and human history in general.
What Kind of Content Do We Archive?
For a project like this, there is really no limit to what we save but right now we try to categorize everything into 5 format types
- podcasts, music, interviews, sound effects, and comedy routines
- articles, books, comics, and magazines.
- photographs, memes, infographics, graphics, and emoticons
- applications, games, source codes, and operating systems
- movies, television, documentaries, news reports, internet/youtube videos, and sports
Why Are We Doing This?
You may think this sounds like a tedious and unrewarding endeavor. But here at Liberty Archives, we think we owe it to future generations to use the currently available technology to try our best to preserve as much as possible. There are constant threats to the free flow of information from entities with malicious intent, and it is important to us to attempt to be a cog in the mechanism that protects against censorship.
