Eharu 616
e하루616

The EHARU616 Campaign was launched with the objective of mobilizing Internet users to record and capture information that flows rapidly throughout the Internet in a state of constant flux on June 16 each year, if only on that day. The Internet evolves at breathtaking pace, but the information there disappears, without being preserved. We believe that the Internet should be recorded and preserved, as do museums and libraries. The information documented through the EHARU616 Campaign will become valuable resources for future generations to get a glimpse of an aspect of the past Internet culture.
