Internet Archive San Francisco Office damaged by fire

 

The non-profit Internet Archive suffered a major setback yesterday (6/11/13) when a fire broke out at its San Francisco office, causing an estimated $600,000 in damages. Fortunately there were no injuries and no data was lost, but the digital library, which seeks to give “universal access to all knowledge,” lost high-end scanners and digitization equipment.
