No More Recall

I just learned that Recall, the search tool that provided full text search access to about 1/3 of The Wayback Machine database (about 11 million pages), is no longer available.

I’m trying to find out if this is just a temporary move and a new version of Recall is on the way or if the project has been scrapped.

The Recall database went live as a beta about 13 months ago. It was designed and developed by Anna Patterson, an IA volunteer. I believe Anna is now working at Google. In April, ACM Queue, published an article by Patterson titled, “Why Writing Your Own Search Engine is Hard.”
