Organization: Internet Archive
These crawls are part of an effort to archive pages as they are created and archive the pages that they refer to. That way, as the pages that are referenced are changed or taken from the web, a link to the version that was live when the page was written will be preserved.
Then the Internet Archive hopes that references to these archived pages will be put in place of a link that would be otherwise be broken, or a companion link to allow people to see what was originally intended by a page's authors.
The goal is to fix all broken links on the web. Crawls of supported "No More 404" sites. Collection: Wikipedia Near Real Time (from IRC) This is a collection of web page captures from links added to, or changed on, Wikipedia pages. The idea is to bring a reliability to Wikipedia outlinks so that if the pages referenced by Wikipedia articles are changed, or go away, a reader can permanently find what was originally referred to.
This is part of the Internet Archive's attempt to rid the web of broken links. TIMESTAMPS

Dave Grohl Writes Letter to Fans: 'Sound City' Doc 'Is My Life’s Most Important Work'2:40 AM PST 12/9/2012 by Shirley Halperin
The Foo Fighters frontman encourages all who pre-order his filmmaking debut to: "Get together, start a band, sound like shit, and change the world."
Music fans who fork over $10 to pre-order Sound City, Dave Grohl's debut documentary, will not only get a DRM-free digital version of the film, which premieres at Sundance in January and is due out Feb. 1, they also receive a heartfelt note from the Foo Fighters frontman himself.Recommended Dave Grohl's 'Sound City' Doc to Screen at Sundance Dave Grohl to Host 'Sound City' Show on SiriusXM Dave Grohl to Deliver South by Southwest Keynote Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl Reveals 'Sound City' Poster Art
In the letter, sent to those who purchased via the film's official site, Grohl explains how the project began as "a crazy idea" -- to tell the story of a somewhat nondescript and dilapidated recording studio in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley where many of rock's most important records were made -- and "blossomed into something truly epic."
The doc features interviews conducted by Grohl with such music luminaries as Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Trent Reznor, Neil Young, John Fogerty and Tom Petty, among many others. Produced independently with a crew of 20, Grohl describes the filmmaking process as "like a keg party with a camera," adding, "WE got to tell the story of a place we all held so dear."
It also explores what Grohl calls "the human connection" -- the glory and oftentimes creative pain of coming together as a band to make music that will ultimately change the world. Sound lofty? Bear in mind who the overachieving first-time director behind the Sound City project is.
Read Grohl's letter in its entirety below:
Thanks for scraping up your hard earned dough and buying the movie direct from our site! We’re stoked! Hope you love it as much as we do….
Ummm………Holy shit! I made a movie!
I started this project a little over a year ago with ONE of my good old friends (Jim Rota from the band Fireball Ministry). That’s right….just me, my drinking buddy, and a crazy idea that we should tell the story of a studio we had loved hanging around for years, and our heartbreak to see it close. It soon blossomed into something truly epic! I don’t think either of us ever imagined our little project would become what it is now. Like all the best things in life, it just…….happened.
From day one, it was the most incredible experience of my life. I swear. Sitting down with Neil Young talking about recording guitars, John Fogerty telling me about the day he decided to become a musician, Stevie Nicks telling me the story of how she joined Fleetwood Mac, Trent Reznor schooling me on the world of computers and digital technology, etc etc etc…..can you imagine? All I had to do was listen…I am the luckiest man on earth.
And, being a completely independent film, no one told us how or what to do! Me and my crew of under 20 people did it OUR way. It was like a keg party with a camera. WE got to tell the story of a place we all held so dear. WE wanted to do it justice. And I think we did.
But, SOUND CITY is only part of the story…..
What is it that happens when 4 people turn on, plug in, and really play that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up? What is it about those moments when you hear something and it immediately puts its hooks in you, and you feel…..understood? What is it that will inspire the next generation of kids wanna do what I did when I was a little punk growing up in Springfield, Virginia? That feeling like, “Wait……I can do this too…..
That’s what I’m talking about. That human connection. That human feel. That human sound…that isn’t perfect…but it’s sooooo good.
I really feel like SOUND CITY is my life’s most important work. I hope you do too.
Psyched that you get to see it! Show it to your friends! Get together, start a band, sound like shit, and change the world. GO!
Thank you, thank you, thank you………Dave
