Capturing The Bush Legacy Online - washingtonpost.com

Hmm -- so perhaps W won't be able to hide key information, as he apparently did with his pre-presidential record, by sequestering the records in his dad's presidential library...

The Bush administration will soon be packed and gone, but part of its legacy will live on in cyberspace.

A consortium of government and nonprofit agencies plans to capture snapshots of every federal government Web site before Jan. 20, when the next president moves into the White House and starts remaking the federal bureaucracy to fit his agenda. The goal of the 2008 "end-of-term harvest" is to preserve millions of agency records in an online archive that librarians hope will provide a valuable trove for historians, government scholars and the public.
