I should have enough time to write another post or two today. I am thinking about returning to the discussions I had about the National Intranet and why it is irreconcilable with the Dark Web. Barring the desire for privacy and freedom of speech, I do think that an important aspect of the Dark Web is to provide a monument of what the World Wide Web (WWW) was like in the 1990s. Nowadays, some thirty years after the founding of the WWW, it can be hard to think about what Life was like before the WWW. It is even harder to think about what the early years of the WWW was like, especially when information in the digital realm is not guaranteed to last, despite what people have been led to believe. How much of the WWW from the 1990s can still be found on the usual search engines?
