    WebCite

    Just so you know -

    I clicked on a link in Wikipedia, and was able to read the interview it linked to - which was from a defunct Geocities site that Yahoo had killed, along with Geocities, a few years ago.

    This was courtesy of WebCite, a service that gives some insurance that a quote of a web page remains current despite the vagaries of disappearing hosting or people not paying the bills.

    I do not know who or what is behind the concept, but I am grateful that I was able to read an interview with a football hero of my boyhood. Considering that Amazon is now in charge of the Wayback Machine, I am glad that something without obvious commercial involvement is also in the same business...
