Fundamental Module Part 1 Recap

  • http://www.whitehouse.gov
    • On each click, many HTTP requests and responses occur (e.g., 43 transactions in this case), some of which may be dynamically initiated by the others
    • We must archive not only the files received from the server, but also when and what requests we sent, and when and what responses we received, and then use these information to recreate the web experience
    • We packages these information into WARC files, based on which web archives are built
    • Crawler do not always mimic user behavior well
    • User driven archiving process (e.g., webrecorder) may better mimic user experience
      • Anna will run a lab session on webrecorder at ~3:15PM, based on the latest feature rollout not included in the youtube videos

  • Cool things you can do with web archives
