Well ... the "Internet in a box" is a joke no more. The Internet Archive's Wayback Machine has been collecting "snapshots" of the web since 1996, allowing visitors to freely access archived versions of Web pages across time. Now, the entire archive is housed in a Sun Modular Datacenter shown on the left. Admittedly, it is somewhat bigger than the box Jen was introduced to but it's pretty cool to think this two petabyte archive (growing at over a petabyte per year) still fits inside a box.
Want to see what Yahoo! looked like in 1996? Simply enter http://www.yahoo.com in the search box and hit the "Take Me Back" button.
