Molly Bragg (bio before that of Mouse the dog) of Internet Archive is talking about the Archive-It subscription service. And Dan Avery (notice that the Archive bios are listed in alphabetic order by first name) is talking about “The Web is a Mess!” in which explains the Archive-It crawler and how he learned to stop worrying and love the web.

On Saturday, April 28th, 2007 at UNC Chapel Hill BarCampSignal will be held in conjunction with Signalfest, the Southeastern Electronic Music Festival. We are attempting something completely new with music conference workshops. We want to blend the standard Q&A process with the collaborative magic of Bar Camp. You have say as an Artist/Producer, Promoter, or a Fan on how we put this festival and future festivals together.
