Creative Stimulus"Open and free access to literature and other writings has long been considered essential to education and to the maintenance of an open society. Public and philanthropic enterprises have supported it through the ages." The Live Music Archive has received more than 10,000+ concert recordings!
A few stats; Now stored: 10,000+ shows, 150,000+ tracks, from 500+ bands, in alittle over a year and a half. About 10 Terabytes of information on 40 Terabytes of disk space on 60 linux boxes. almost 1,000 uploaders, 300 uploaders have uploaded more than 10 shows. Grateful Dead concerts are being added like crazy, because their policy allows non-commercial hosting.

Converting most of the concerts to mp3/ogg and full concert zip filesUsage: about 1`Petabyte of concerts have been downloaded (1,000,000,000,000,000 bytes) Or about 1 Million shows. Currently 400megabits/sec of outbound bandwidth.

Longer term wish list: Broaden the collection into lots of different types of music.
Internet Radio interface. & Improved website by searching, speed, browsing.

There are other parts dedicated to: The Web, Movies and Texts too.

The Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) public nonprofit that was founded to build an ‘Internet library,’ with the purpose of offering permanent access for researchers, historians, and scholars to historical collections that exist in digital format.

This comes from, "Brewster Kahle is the founder and digital librarian for the Internet Archive (IA). He is also on the board of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. The IA started out as just that -- a non-profit organization dedicated to taking snap shots of the entire Web every six months, in order to create a searchable archive. One of the main goals of the Internet Archive is to provide "Universal Access to All Human Knowledge." It sounds like a lofty task, but Brewster is firmly committed to it, and truly believes that it is achievable. Anyone in his presence for five minutes or more is likely to feel the same way, because his enthusiasm is quite contagious. "
