Archive.org's scanning center destroyed by fire

http://blog.archive.org/2013/11/06/s...-help-rebuild/

Quote:
This morning at about 3:30 a.m. a fire started at the Internet Archive’s San Francisco scanning center. The good news is that no one was hurt and no data was lost.
They are looking for donations to replace the $600,000 worth of book, film and microfilm scanning equipment lost in the fire.

Thanks for posting about this. It's a great organization. I've made a donation to help them re-build and encourage others to do so if you can afford it. They accept Amazon Payments, Paypal and other forms of payment. Here's the link: https://archive.org/donate/

Where do you get insurance that does not depreciate the value of items quickly? More quickly even than the IRS allows for equipment.

So much of the equipment I use every day has NO value as far as the Insurance is concerned.
They will replace the WALLS of my home office.
There won't be anything in there, because nothing has any value left. Some of the stuff is no longer replaceable, as it is no longer even available, even USED.
