Event description

Description

Once a year, the Internet Archive’s community pulls out its fancy hats and dancing shoes and celebrates the latest breakthroughs in building a better web together. Our goal: to bring you knowledge in all its many forms that is richer, deeper, more trustworthy and openly accessible on the Web. Knowledge that will fuel innovation and understanding for generations to come. So won’t you join us? Come to Building A Better Web: The Internet Archive’s Annual Bash, Wednesday, October 3 from 5-10 p.m. at our headquarters in San Francisco.

We’ve got tacos, hands-on demos, and 78s on the decks. Come digitize a rare book, play a virtual reality game, or explore the newest features of the Wayback Machine. There’ll be art installations around every corner, and be sure to get tattooed (temporarily) with a GeoCities GIF image from the 90s.

We can’t wait to show you our coolest new tools and mind-boggling new collections of 2018. From the great works of Tibetan Buddhism to 12,000 free audiobooks on your mobile phone, we’ll unveil the latest and greatest breakthroughs of the year.

We’ll close out the night with Archive gift giveaways, dessert thanks to Three Twins Ice Cream, and the vinyl playlist of DJ Phast Phreddie. It’s a party with a purpose: to celebrate the open, creative, sharing community of the Web –a Web we’re working hard to make better each and every day. Hope you can make it!
