I have a conflict, actually. The same time Wednesday, or earlier Thursday I could make. I haven't participated in this Noisebridge group, so maybe it's not worth moving around for my sake, but I used to crawl the web at the Internet Archive, if that's worth any cred. I'd like to have conversations about p2p digital archives, specifically but not limited to web archives.
