“Already for more than two years I look at 72 dead web pages a day. There is a lot of emotional and sad stuff in the Geocities archive. But there are two types of homepages that break my heart on the daily basis. Ones that promise that soon — very soon, in two weeks, or till the end of the year, or when school starts or stops — the page will be built. It will shine in all its glory, will be the best SailorMoon or BSB fan page on the earth!
Others are goodbye pages. Their masters say that they fail, or that they got real life or the real domain name, or that they are angry about Yahoo or rude comments.
Both could be last updated on the same day and appear next to each other in the archives timeline. that makes my experience even more dramatic.”
Olia Lialina will also be part of The Memory of Technology x The Past: Digital Folklore, on Friday 30 October at 16:30.
