Internet Search Tips
"Over time, I developed a certain google-fu and expertise in finding references, papers, and books online. Some of these tricks are not well-known, like checking the Internet Archive (IA). I try to write down my search workflow, and give general advice about finding and hosting documents."

The Internet's Dark Ages - The Atlantic
In other formats, entire eras of meaningful work have been destroyed. Most of the films made in the United States between 1912 and 1929 have been lost. “And it’s not because we didn't know how to preserve them, it’s that we didn't think they were valuable,” Rumsey said. “The first 50 or 100 years of print after the printing press, most of what was produced was lost... People looked down on books as having less value in part because they were able to print things so rapidly and distribute them so much more rapidly that they seemed ephemeral.”

Books, in their infancy, were trivialized the way the web is sometimes denigrated today. The telegraph was similarly maligned as “superficial, sudden, unsifted, too fast for the truth,” as a critic in The New York Times put it in 1858. Transformative technologies in any era are met with initial skepticism, and that attitude often fuels indifference about initial preservation efforts. Historians and digital preservationists agree on this fact: The early web, today’s web, will be mostly lost to time.

Why Amazon is a ‘bully’ and Facebook and Google are ‘the enemies of independent thought’
“That was my frustration when I went and talked to the Justice Department about Amazon,” Foer said. “It’s like, ‘Well, they’re actually hurting consumers over the long run by hurting producers. And they’re behaving in a bullying sort of way. Maybe not to consumers, but to producers. Why in God’s name can’t you see the harm?’ And they just couldn’t see it because it was so outside of the current paradigm under which they’re operating.”

Verizon takes a $5 billion writedown for its Yahoo and AOL purchases
It was easy to predict that Verizon would end up regretting the $10 billion or so that it had invested in AOL and Yahoo. The two companies used to define the internet, but by the time the phone company bought them, they were long past their prime. [...]

Now Verizon has formally acknowledged that it, too, can’t turn AOL and Yahoo around and has written off $4.6 billion of the money it spent buying the two properties. The playbook from here on out calls for a series of staff cuts and asset sales, followed by more writedowns, followed by more cuts, etc.
