Swedish "internet museum" investigates our digital past

"If you don't know your history, you're doomed to repeat it"

The founders of Sweden's first internet museum want to make sure that the Internet's history lives on.

Måns Jonasson is the web and brand manager at the Swedish Internet and Infrastructure Foundation, SE, which hosts the museum, he tells Radio Sweden: "We see a need to be able to re-tell what happened on the Internet in Sweden for the past 20 years. The work so far has revolved around interviewing people for significant internet in Sweden and now we also work to save the old pages," he said.

The museum features a mix of technology, politics, and internet culture, says Elisabeth Nilsson, a spokesperson for the museum. Not everything is still available online, however, making some of the choices difficult. The museum is entirely digital and on the site internetmuseum.se.
