If for some reason you forget to back up the contents of your MobileMe account before it shuts down on June 30, not to worry. An intrepid collective of “rogue archivists, programmers, writers and loudmouths” has taken it upon themselves to download the entirety of MobileMe webpages, iDisk folders, and photo galleries, meaning your most precious documents are safe from the impending Internet vortex. And in the hands of strangers.
The Archive Team said it managed to successfully complete the endeavor on Tuesday after one year of work, downloading 272 terabytes from some 380,000 users. I wonder what kind of monthly cable package the team subscribes to.
