The dusty corners of the Internet

I’m curious about the various time-trapped bits of the internet these days such as Barack Obama’s Twitter feed, abandoned land and marketing exercises in Second Life and blogs that people no longer write in. All eyes in one direction for 15 minutes or 6 months, then onto something else. Are these the abandoned memories, newspapers, magazines and books of the 21st century? In 50 years is this what people will turn to to do archeology, sifting through millions of blog posts, pictures on Flickr, Facebook statuses to tell how we lived our lives….?
Time always tells.
