We’ll also have a presentation from Ben Welsh, who h is a database producer at the Los Angeles Times and the creator of PastPages, an archive dedicated to the preservation of online news. 

Ben attended the RJI event and presented about StoryTracker, and will reprise his presentation for our meeting.

In this brief talk, Ben will show its key features and demonstrate how it could be useful in other efforts to save and scrutinize the Web.
