Whaling History
"Whale oil provided fuel for lighting and lubrication for the gears of the industrial revolution, until it was replaced by petroleum products in the mid-nineteenth century. The whaling industry ranked ninth in the United States in overall value to the economy at its height in the mid-1840s. The documentation of that industry is extensive; the data presented here combines many sources including logbooks, journals, ship registers, newspapers, business papers, and custom house records."

Does the Million Dollar Homepage represent a robust digital artifact 12 years after its creation, or has it fallen prey to the ephemerality common to internet content?
