"Two years ago, Yahoo! committed an act of digital urbicide and deleted the entire U.S. archives of GeoCities, the personal-website portal it had paid $3.57 billion for in 1999. (Oddly, the Japanese version apparently still exists.) But an intrepid backup effort by The Internet Archive managed to capture GeoCities’ final state as a 641GB torrent file for posterity.
And now, artist Richard Vijgen has used that data to create an interactive tribute called "The Deleted City," which literally maps the millions of GeoCities web pages onto a zoomable urban grid." << fastcodesign.com
