IT'S GOOD TO KNOW that the Internet Archive harvests more than simple text. I've used it to resurrect images and audio clips from sites long discontinued.
Several voices I used to enjoy on Audioboo have closed their accounts but in many cases, their digital artifacts surface through the Wayback Machine. It's like hearing a blast from the past and rather amazing because their audio clips have been saved from Amazon's S3 servers even though their originators totally deleted their accounts on Audioboo. I get the same result from sites that depended upon photographs, images or maps presented from other sites.
As time goes forward, I hope that the iFrames and JQuery content from sites I use every week also get the same archival treatment.
I often reflect on my need to create stronger archives by following a routine that involves Markdown inside Scrivener, Evernote and pushing my audio clips into my Crashplan. And so I start 2014 with the same theme but this year I'm also auditing my content, watching related items appear in my personal archives and setting aside time to scrape whole websites.
