An internet snapshot should be saved daily for historical preservation.
The internet is a great historical tool which is currently being wasted.
Every day millions if not billions of entries are removed/replaced and even deleted from the internet. Every time that happens we are throwing away a piece of our history.
Imagine being able to look back to today 1000 years from now and have an accurate historical record. That's what we won't be able to do because there isn't a effort to save this amazing historical record.
Would be great if we could search a database that accurately depicted event which occurred 2000 years ago? How many times in the history has history been rewritten and even destroyed?
New compression algorithm would have to be developed in order to completely backup the internet each and everyday perpetually. Not to mention that some monstrous infrastructure would need to be built, that why this effort should be a worldwide shared effort. A consortium would be formed and the idea could be further developed.
A worldwide HIstorical LIbrary/Museum for the future of mankind.
