Have you ever thought about going way back in time?
maybe I can help you with that 🙂
If you’re thinking about “physically” traveling in time
and changing something you did, you might already
know that it’s not possible (I bet you do 😐 ).
But in today’s case I’m talking about something very
possible, I’m talking about “mentally” going back in
I will explain that in a second.
The internet is the place where most of the
world’s knowledge exists, It’s been kept there
for the purpose of being saved or any other
But what if this information has been deleted
or altered, how can someone retrieve it back?
let’s say that Google has changed its website’s
design, changed the logo, the name, and
the color but you disparately need to find that
old logo again say for a “school” project…
what would you do in that scenario?
search Google? huh, they deleted all the
records of their logo until it seemed like
it didn’t exist.
But is there a way to go back?
Here comes the WayBack machine, It gives
you the ability to see a website’s history
by just entering the URL (even if the website
has been deleted).
Let’s take Google for example, we want to know
what was it like when it first started, we go to
the WayBack machine and enter google.com,
choose the date (like a time machine) and Voila!
“Google!” was so cute in “11 November, 1998“
Try it yourself HERE
BTW, The internet archive (the WayBack machine keeper)
currently needs your help to keep going and
archiving the internet… help them with 5$ if you can
(and no I won’t gain any profit).
And as always, BYE.
