The Memory Hole

Launch date > 10 July 2002

Purpose > The Memory Hole exists to preserve and spread material that is in danger of being lost, is hard to find, or is not widely known. 

This includes:

• Government files

• Corporate memos

• Court documents (incl. lawsuits and transcripts)

• Police reports and eyewitness statements

• Congressional testimony

• Reports (governmental and non-governmental)

• Maps, patents, Web pages

• Photographs, video, and sound recordings

• News articles

• Books (and portions of books)

The emphasis is on material that exposes things that we’re not supposed to know (or that we’re supposed to forget).

Funding > The Memory Hole is funded entirely out of Russ’ own shallow pockets, including the money that readers like you graciously tuck into those pockets. It contains no e-commerce, subscriber areas, or ads (except for the obvious self-promotion of those books written or edited by Russ). It does not receive funding from foundations.
