Presented at The Eleventh HOPE (2016), July 23, 2016, 10 p.m. (60 minutes)

In the last few years, the Internet Archive (archive.org) has steered deeply into the worlds of software history, hacker presentations, and artifacts from all parts of technology&#39;s past and present. <a href="https://xi.hope.net/speakers.html#Jason Scott">Jason Scott</a>, the Archive&#39;s software curator and inside man, walks through both the current stacks of technology and hacker culture history and reveals in what directions the nonprofit library hopes to expand. Lots of amusing imagery and endless lost weekends will ensue.
