Unless you’ve developed Macromedia Director titles, you may not know that their runtime license requires content developers to give Macromedia two copies of every Director-based title. (Similarly, Apple’s license requires two copies of every title that uses QuickTime.)
Internet Archive is an amazing site that’s the home of the Wayback Machine — an archive of the web that lets you surf over 10 billion pages in the fourth dimension (you must try if you haven’t before) — and other great projects.
Recently, Macromedia boosted the Internet Archive’s Software Archive department with over 10,000 Director-based CD-ROM titles. They’re now trying to figure out how to best preserve them for the long-term. [via Slashdot]
