Web of Stories is an online collection of thousands of autobiographical video-stories. Web of Stories, originally known as Science Archive, was set up to record the life stories of scientists. When it expanded to include the lives of authors, movie makers, artists and others, it was renamed Peoples Archive, finally evolving to become Web of Stories in 2008.[1]
