I’ve been given permission to go ahead and schedule an Internet Archive Telethon to allow us to have a gosh-darn-it actual†showcase†at the amazing space that is the San Francisco headquarters. My goal, humble as always, is to try and raise a million dollars for the Archive in a weekend.


To do this, there will be a live telethon from noon on Saturday, December 19th to noon on Sunday, December 20th. I will be co-hosting with others, and it will be quite a hoot.


I’m now working on stuff regarding logistics for it, but I’m letting people know about it because of two reasons:


FIRST. If you know or are a group who makes use of the Internet Archive, either hosting with the Archive, or are a prominent name (I’ll leave the definition of that to you), then please write me at†telethon@textfiles.com and let me know your ideas for an act, appearance, pre-recorded message, or other contribution that will be good to have during the live streaming.


Second, if you donate to the Internet Archive in advance of the Telethon, and include the phrase†LOCKBOX in your donation, it will be added to the Telethon’s pre-telethon “Lockbox” and that will give us the initial boost towards the goal.


I’ll return to my regularly scheduled weblog shortly.
