9/11 Document Archive Traffic

Filed under: Complete 911 Timeline — kevinfenton @ 2:03 am

I just want to say how pleased I am with the relative success of the 9/11 document archive at Scribd (masterlist of all posts about the archive here). I had wondered how popular it would be on the net, but figured we should put it there anyway. However, I now see that we are past a quarter of a million document reads and rapidly coming up on the 300,000 mark. I know this would be a trifle to, say, an entertainment website’s article about Britney Spears, but we are talking about a bunch of dry documents so I figure it has been a big success. It was also good to get something that the online history community can use, and Erik, who has done all the heavy lifting, deserves a lot of credit.

We are still going through the documents and analysing them and probably will be for several years.
