The Internet Archive Raises $1 Million and Adds a Lot of Information During 2012
Congrats and Thank You to Brewster Kahle and the Internet Archive Team!
From Brewster’s IA Blog Post:
Thanks to the generous support of our users we raised $250,000 in donations during the month of December, and with the 3-to-1 match from one of our donors that gives us $1,000,000! We raised enough to purchase 4 petabytes of storage, which helps us towards the 10 we estimate for next year.
If you would like to support the Internet Archive with a donation you can find details here.
The blog post also contains some year-end numbers.
