A Long Bet Pays Off February 22, 2022 10:16 AM Subscribe
Cool news from Archive.org:
11 years ago, on the site longbets.org, a friendly wager was made between two mavens of the web: Jeremy Keith and Matthew Haughey. The bet, to be revisited a decade and a year later, would be whether the URL of their wager at Long Bets would survive to a point in the semi-distant future. That is, this day, February 22nd, 2022, (2/22/2222).
As of this writing, the URL absolutely has survived.
Therefore, the Internet Archive shall receive a $1,000 donation from Mr. Keith and Mr. Haughey ($500 apiece), provided from an escrow account that has held the funds since the day of the wager.In light of #DoublesJubilee (in which the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine has been an invaluable resource), why not make a donation of your own today?
