Please Update this article with these new figures[edit]

Hi, I'm the Director of Partnerships at IA. I noticed there are a lot of old facts and figures in this article. Here's a source with up-to-date information: https://archive.org/about/

For instance in 2017 we now have 30 petabytes of data.

Some good secondary sources (that were requested) include: Medium: "Never Trust a Corporation to do a Library's Job": https://medium.com/message/never-trust-a-corporation-to-do-a-librarys-job-f58db4673351

The New Yorker--Jill Lepore's "The Cobweb: Can the Web be Archived?" http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/01/26/cobweb

Thanks for helping to make this more accurate.

Robots.txt to be ignored[edit]

It's unclear at this time exactly when this will apply to sites other than government ones, but archive.org have announced in their blog that they are "looking to do this more broadly" https://blog.archive.org/2017/04/17/robots-txt-meant-for-search-engines-dont-work-well-for-web-archives/

It may be worth mentioning this where the article currently gives a false sense of privacy in saying that robots.txt is obeyed. 51.6.114.17 (talk) 19:09, 24 April 2017 (UTC)
