Listen Online: Internet Archive Founder Brewster Kahle Interviewed on New Zealand Radio

While on a trip to New Zealand to speak at the National Digital Forum 2014 Conference, the founder of the Internet Archive (to name only one of his many accomplishments), Brewster Kahle, was interviewed on Radio New Zealand’s “Nine To Noon” program.

A recording of the interview is now available online and can streamed and/or downloaded.

We’ve said it before and will say it again and again, the work of Brewster Kahle and the Internet Archive team is both important and essential to not only the library/archive community but to many other user groups including anyone needing/hoping to find a copy of a web page that was once available. We’re honored to call Brewster a friend. Thanks IA! Thanks Brewster!

Here’s the Blurb From the Radio New Zealand web site:

Brewster Kahle is an American computer engineer, Internet entrepreneur, internet activist, and digital librarian.

He is the founder of the Internet Archive, a non-profit digital library with the stated mission of “universal access to all knowledge”.

There were a number of us who wanted to see “a library of everything”….the library of Alexandria, version two.”

The Internet Archive provides free public access to collections of digitised materials, including websites, music, moving images, and nearly three million public-domain books.

Brewster Kahle talks to Kathryn Ryan.

The program runs about 36.5 minutes.

Note: The interview is also available for download.
