Recall Update

I mentioned on Monday that Recall, the datbase offering keyword access to a portion of The Wayback Machine, is no longer online.

Brewster Kahle, CEO of the Internet Archive, told me last night that the move is just a temporary one. The IA intends to make the database available as soon as they can make it more reliable.

“Given its instability we didn’t want people to suffer,” Kahle said.

The Wayback Machine
is still available.

Let’s hope that Recall, a very valuable research tool, returns to the web very soon. T
