This week was quite eventful. We attended SF MusicTech Summit where our own panelist, Matt Mason, had the quote of the day: “Data is the new hustle.” Read the entire recap, here. We also caught up with another member of our team, Yuri Cárdenas, who, as Senior Producer for Interactive Media, is responsible for making sure our Featured Content releases see the light of day.

Of course, we discovered some more hidden gems from the Internet Archive. Enjoy your Sunday and we’ll have more exciting updates to bring you this next week.

A trip down Market Street

Trip Down Market Street Before the Fire

Our offices are fairly close to Market Street, in San Francisco. Naturally, we were thrilled to stumble across this footage of activity on the major transit thoroughfare from 1906 – taken days before a major earthquake damaged over 80% of the city.

Alejandro Escovedo

Live Music from Austin

Right about now, we wish we were at Austin City Limits. The next best thing? Watching a live performance from Alejandro Escovedo from a few years back in the live music capital of the world. By the way, the Internet Archive has hundreds of thousands of live performances for you to enjoy, on-demand, anytime.
