How are the value of the Internet and all our interactions within it preserved over time? The answer to this question is usually left for corporations to formulate, but in this workshop you will be introduced to an innovative and accessible tool for user-driven web archiving, with which data can be both collectively shared and stored by individuals. Participants will receive a quick overview of key web archiving concepts and the Webrecorder tool, an open-source project developed by Rhizome at the New Museum, New York. Unlike previous, crawler-based web archiving systems, Webrecorder excels at capturing dynamic web content and social media feeds. Participants will learn how to use Webrecorder.io‘s main features and witness a demonstration of how to download and open web archive (WARC) files using the Webrecorder Player.
Requirements: Please bring your own laptop. Recommended minimum screen resolution 1440×900. Chrome or Firefox browsers installed in advance. The workshop is open to a number of max. 20 participants.
