Out of all the archives I read I found “MITH’s Vintage Computers Archive”, to be the most interesting. From reading the web page and looking at the different links you really gain a greater understanding of how technology has progressed. Looking over this site it makes me appreciate how computers are way easier to operate then before. Also I am amazed how we went from having to have multiple floppy disk to save data and be able open it on different computer to using a disk, which eliminated having to carry multiple floppies. Another archive that gives you a deep appreciation is the Jane Austen archive, which being able to see her writing as a child to an adult you have understanding of how peoples’ minds change over time. The vector experiment is a very creative way of getting people more involved with writing and in some form making them feel involved. I like how its not the traditional writing structure, to me even know I might not understand what the story is getting across its gives the words more influence in a way.
I think all the archive give you a deeper perceptive, you learn about peoples lives or how types of writing spread, which had an impact on other areas. I think that the archives are very similar because all of them in some way are about growing and how things over time change and evolve. Which that makes all archives the same, you understand the past and are able to compare it to the now and maybe that compassion will impact the future of something.~ Natalie
