Errors on page

  • By Andy Connor
  • Tribulations from the digital frontier

Editor’s note: ‘Errors on page’ is a found poem composed entirely from images of real Geocities websites.

The images used in this composition were originally published by Olia Lialina and Dragan Espenschied at One Terabyte of Kilobyte Age, a blog that automatically displays random screenshots from an archive of long-forgotten Geocities pages. That archive, The Geocities Torrent, was created by Archive Team following their 2009 effort to preserve Geocities data from Yahoo servers faced with mass deletion.
