Missing Geocities? Download It.

If you have about a terabyte of spare space on your hard drive, why not fill it with the contents of the ever-memorable Geocities?

The Archive Team has saved the user-generated content of the hosting site after Yahoo! decided to shut down what The Los Angeles Times deemed, “the most significant virtual museum in recent history.” And they have decided to torrent Geocities in its entirety. All 900 GB of it.

“While it’s quite clear this sort of cavalier attitude to digital history will continue,” says The Archive Team on their website. “The hope is that this torrent will bring some attention to both the worth of these archives and the ease at which it can be lost – and found again.”
