One Terabyte Of Kilobyte Age is a blog project on the fascinating vintage computer nerdery site Contemporary Home Computing.  It’s a regularly posted of a recovered archive of Geocities sites, posted one at a time in chronological order on the corresponding Tumblr. On the main blog, commentary and trends are noted, like this symbolical interpretation of the classic “Felix The Cat gif”  and this analysis on broken image links. It’s an amazing resource of vintage internet ephemera, of experimentation and curiosity and people seeking like minds.
