Internet Archive turned 20 this year, and we were blown away when one of our heroes, Larry Lessig, provided this video tribute. It felt a little odd to receive a “Lifetime Achievement Award” at the Webby’s, when our work has only just begun. “Universal Access to Knowledge”—that’s our mission, our mantra, and our guiding light. We get to work with 500+ libraries preserving the cultural works of humankind. So our (fancy archivist) hats are off to all of you, our community for the work you do every single day. Thank you for working with us to preserve the books, web, television and audio in your institutions.
