The Internet Wayback Machine

If you want to take a stroll down memory lane, you should check out the Internet "Wayback Machine" on the Internet Archive. (look for the Wayback Machine dialog box near the top of the screen).
The Internet Archive has been taking snapshots of the entire world wide web since 1996. With it, you can look at earlier versions of current web URL's or view the content of extinct URL's (dead websites). Be prepared to wait a little while for the archived webpages to load. I found that this was an interesting review of earlier content on the web for Native American Flute resources on the web. Try searching the wayback machine for some of these URL's:

On the Internet Archive, you'll also find an amazing storehouse of moving images, live music archive (Attention NA Flute artists: submit your concerts!!!), audio recordings and text articles.
WARNING: don't go browsing unless you've got several hours to kill wandering around the archives!!!
