Session

Hanzo:web, Social Web Archiving

Peter Ferne, Chair, Hanzo

Date: Thursday, March 09
Time: 2:35pm - 3:20pm
Location: Madeleine CD

Every day millions of pages change radically, move or disappear from the Web altogether. Bookmarks and links break. You can save a page to your hard disk or to an online service, but isn't slicing the Web up into individual disconnected pages rather missing the point?

If you're lucky it might have been saved by the Internet Archive. Or not.

Traditional library and archive selection processes, formed when collection was physical and costly, are typically narrow, with mainstream academic interests at heart. Should they be the ones to dictate which bits of the Net are preserved for the future?

Hanzo:web lets everyone choose what's worth preserving. Whenever you bookmark anything you can automatically archive it too, along with what you decide is an appropriate depth of context. The links will still work. And of course you can tag it and share it with everyone else.

We believe memory has to be added to the internet as a part of its architecture for it to become a completely mature medium. That's why we are building an open API for applications and services.

At ETech we'll be launching v1 of Hanzo:web and a public beta of our API—allowing you to build archiving into your own web apps.
