Mention the Internet Archive, and our minds race back to the Wayback Machine, or its public domain treasure trove, or the broadcast news museum. Jason Scott, however, believes that we should be paying attention to what he thinks is now the biggest collection of software and software writing anywhere in the world. Thanks to the recent addition of collections like the Shareware CD Archive, FTP Site Boneyard, Classic PC Games and others, the site can now boast of some impressive exhibits, including an original Apple I manual. Scott now says he's considering improving the collection's metadata so that future generations of online treasure-hunters will actually be able to find stuff.
