Archive.org, the Waybackmachine is the memory of the Internet

Ever heard about the waybackmachine? I don’t think you could call that Web2.0 or even innovative but still, it’s probably the most awesome Internet website/service I have ever seen: Archive.org is a website and a database which keeps track of all the various versions of almost every website that ever populated the Internet.

If you want to keep track of old content which has been wiped out of the Web. For my readers, I can also recommend the various versions of Visionarymarketing.com since 1998 (unfortunately, the earlier 1996 versions have not been stored).
