I just found this site
http://www.archive.org/web/web.php

This is an ambitious project.

Besides being useful for those sites that disappear taking their links and info files with them it will also be a real gold mine for social science investigation.

It should also help to determine if new knowledge truly springs from one source or is just inevitable because of the forces of the time. (EG did any specific person really invent the automobile or the telephone or the airplane or was it just inevitable that the science and parts would be put together to create them because it's time had come.)

It's only mildly useful. I've used it several times before, and pictures tend to be broken, and other times it can't seem to "find" the page that i need.
