We know that the Internet is constantly changing. Organizations update their web site designs with greater frequency every year. But have you ever taken a look back through the years to see just how much sites have actually changed? Now you can with the help of a simple tool – the Internet Archive Wayback Machine. This tool allows you to look through over 150 billion web pages archived from 1996 to a few months ago. Simply enter in a web page address and click the “Take Me Back” button. You can then select from the list of archived dates available. Take a look at your own company’s site or have some fun by looking back at sites like Google, ESPN or IBM. The Internet Archive is a non-profit organization that was founded to build an Internet library. The Archive includes texts, audio, moving images, software and archived web pages.
