You know, a technique for archiving the entire content of
the web on any given day in history would be valuable as all
hell. Have we not all read something somewhere on the web
some time in the past and now we cannot find it? Think of
the post singularity historians, trying to dig thru all the web
content trying to reconstruct it all. Looks like an opportunity
begging for some sharp computer guru to make a ton of
money by inventing such a thing. spike
