Formed in 2009, the Archive Team (not to be confused with the archive.org Archive-It Team) is a rogue archivist collective dedicated to saving copies of rapidly dying or deleted websites for the sake of history and digital heritage. The group is 100% composed of volunteers and interested parties, and has expanded into a large amount of related projects for saving online and digital history.
History is littered with hundreds of conflicts over the future of a community, group, location or business that were "resolved" when one of the parties stepped ahead and destroyed what was there. With the original point of contention destroyed, the debates would fall to the wayside. Archive Team believes that by duplicated condemned data, the conversation and debate can continue, as well as the richness and insight gained by keeping the materials. Our projects have ranged in size from a single volunteer downloading the data to a small-but-critical site, to over 100 volunteers stepping forward to acquire terabytes of user-created data to save for future generations.
The main site for Archive Team is at archiveteam.org and contains up to the date information on various projects, manifestos, plans and walkthroughs.
This collection contains the output of many Archive Team projects, both ongoing and completed. Thanks to the generous providing of disk space by the Internet Archive, multi-terabyte datasets can be made available, as well as in use by the Wayback Machine, providing a path back to lost websites and work.
Our collection has grown to the point of having sub-collections for the type of data we acquire. If you are seeking to browse the contents of these collections, the Wayback Machine is the best first stop. Otherwise, you are free to dig into the stacks to see what you may find.
The Archive Team Panic Downloads are full pulldowns of currently extant websites, meant to serve as emergency backups for needed sites that are in danger of closing, or which will be missed dearly if suddenly lost due to hard drive crashes or server failures.
Tindeck is a free MP3 upload site that helps you share your original music and audio with people around the world.
In light of the European Union's insistence on destroying the free and open internet, we regretfully inform you that Tindeck will permanently cease operations as of August 1, 2018.
During this wind-down period, uploading and new account registration will be disabled. Track streaming and downloading (where enabled) will also remain active during this period. If you are a registered user, you may continue to log into your account and manage your files.
On August 1, all files and user data will be permanently and irrevocably deleted without exception. During this period, we intend to allow a third-party archiving group to catalogue and download all publically available tracks currently hosted on Tindeck, so that they might live on in some fashion.
This is the end of Tindeck, and if the copyright abusers who are spending millions of dollars lobbying the EU to pass changes to Article 13 of the European Union Copyright Directive get their way, it will likely be the end of hundreds of thousands of similar communities around the world. These changes will not just affect people who live in the European Union, it will affect every single website that allows EU citizens to use their services - which is basically every site on the internet.
So if you care about your right to a free and open internet, do something about it. If you live in an EU country, take sixty seconds out of your day to visit SaveYourInternet.eu and send your MEP the message that you do not support their attempts to build a draconian censorship machine.
On a personal note, I would like to offer my eternal thanks to the hundreds of thousands of musicians, artists, podcasters, broadcasters, tinkerers, dabblers, and experimenters who between them contributed over half a million tracks that were enjoyed by hundreds of millions of listeners around the world.
In the fifteen years since I launched Tindeck, I've been lucky enough to meet and befriend many of those creators and listeners, each of whom have contributed their time and talent to this community and who ultimately deserved more than I was able to give them. I'm sorry that things have ended in this way.
So long, and thanks for all the fish.
