The Deleted City (and its archive)

Over a decade ago, there was a thriving city of over 35 million people, busily erecting blinking headers high atop webpages that crooned the sweet tunes of MIDI versions of Metallica songs.  They called this place Geocities and a group of intrepid historian/archivists rescued the 650 gigabytes of homesteaders’ hardwork and created a beautiful interactive visualization of this piece of recent history.
